When did 3D become such a big deal? (And when did Nintendojo become so topical!? …wait a minute…) Even though the 3DS is quickly approaching its first birthday on the market, the endless parroting about how 3D “really improves the gaming experience!” is really starting to get old. This week’s apathetic example comes courtesy of Resident Evil Revelations. I mean come on guys, we get it. Shush. (If it’s any consolation, we thought Revelations wasn’t half bad. Just let the product speak for itself next time!)
And while Nintendo aren’t the only ones to blame for this kind of guiltless self-promotion (we’re looking at you, Hollywood, no one cares about Titanic 3D) it begs the question: who actually cares about 3D? Who actually uses the 3D function on 3DS or other consoles or in the cinema? Do you feel like 3D has added to the game experience or merely been a sidestep on the path to greater innovation? When will this seemingly-never-ending list of rhetorical questions wrap up so you can just answer the poll?
This week we ask your thoughts on 3D. Fancy getting on your (three dimensional) soap box? (How else would you stand on it? LOL- Ed.) Then be sure to voice your multi-spacial thoughts in the comments’ section below. It’s like TRON, down there. Just… low-key.
