Is 3D Gaming Dying Out?

It seems we're hearing about 3D less and less. Was it even mentioned at any of the major E3 conferences this year? I can't recall it if it was. This used to plague the front of our gaming news sites and be plastered on the front of all of our favorite games, hell, Sony even released a TV specifically for it, but now, it seems as if the trend is dying off. I'm not sure if dying is the right word. Cementing? Dissipating? Drifting away into a sea of gaming gimmicks to forever be forgotten?

Not necessarily, I think it has made it's mark as a optional feature for gaming like voice chat. It's a way to enhance the experience. I dislike the 3DS 3D screen sometimes especially outside. The sunlight makes it really hard to see the image even with 3D off!

It never really started on consoles, they lack the processing power. The only 3D games that didn't look jaggy and low res were Crysis and Crysis 2 and apparently they weren't true 3D, whatever that means.

It hard to enjoy the 3D when the game looks and runs terrible but when it works it definitely adds a lot to the immersion imo.

3D always hurts my eyes, but I'm a pussy.

In games like Batman AC it is a welcome addition. If implemented well it really adds to the experience.

That said, I still think it's overpriced (I bought my 3D setup at great prices though).

Uncharted 3 did a really good job with it. Along with Wipeout HD and Super Stardust. A lot of titles have too slow of a framerate, and it can lead to headaches. Next gen I feel it will truly start to shine.

I really recommend you try playing in PC if you want a real 3D experience.
I also have headaches without 60fps in 3D (120 real). And I hate the blurriness sub-HD 3D.

The only downside to 3D is the lack of support by some developers.
That said, there's a lot of great 3D games:
Batman 1 & 2, The witcher 2, Battlefield, Skyrim (modded), Crysis, Portal are among the very best I've played. Of course there are many more, but I haven't seen them myself.
