3D gaming is something that is always a hot topic of debate. Many of the heated arguments about the subject always involve the state and necessity of 3D gaming to the industry. The general consensus is that 3D in gaming has not reached a point in creative execution or application that has made it a significant impact on the games we play. This is mainly due to a number of reasons that have prevented 3D gaming from becoming hugely popular with the general public or having added something significant to the experience we get from the games we all play. With all the commercialization of such products like the 3DS, 3D displaying tvs, and games that have options to display in 3D; it is necessary to know and understand the real issues behind 3D gaming's stagnation and why 3D gaming is not where it needs to be in the games industry.
