Sony Going Retro in 3D!

One of the big advantages of stereoscopic 3D technology is it brings new life to old titles.  It's kind of a shame that in PC gaming, DirectX 7 and 8 are no longer 3D playable because their simpler graphics and hard edges made for a compelling experience.  Let's face it: Battlefield 1942 rocked in 3D, and you haven't played Klingon Academy unless you've experienced it in all three dimensions.

I'll get this thread started. I think the older games that take on a new life in stereoscopic 3D include:

Doom 3
Battlefield 1942
Star Trek: Klingon Academy

The out of screen effects were awesome. In the case of Doom 3, it was just so darned scary in 3D, I can't think of another title that matches up. This was a game where 3D shined like no other.

Oh, so many! Some old, some not so much:

Morrowind with all the graphic enhancement mods - such a great story
Riddick Escape from Butcher Bay - It's half game half movie
Mafia - Loved the action sequences and varied missions
Star Wars KOTOR - The frozen combat looks really cool
Black and White - I AM A GOD!
Scrapland - Funny robots and really shiny environments to fly around in. Get up some speed, dodge other ships and flying through the tunnels it amazing!

American McGee's Alice was awesome in 3D, one of the first games I played when I got shutter glasses for the PC.

Agreed...

I dusted off my MS Train Sim once I got my 3D HMD, and it took on a whole new life. It was like being a kid with a life-size train set.
