I really get a laugh at the haters... "3D sucks..." "It's a gimmick..." - and yet they don't own a 3D TV, and probably haven't spend a significant amount of time with one. These are also usually the same sort of people, or at least the same reasoning, that was employed by the haters of anything "HD" before it became mainstream.
There are also a small number of people who cannot handle 3D - that's fine, but don't become a hater.
StarDust HD is a spiffy little PSN game that looks great in 3D - Asteroids in orbit, and the 3D does help. Same goes for CoD:BO.
3D is here to stay. Kick back and enjoy it. As for the "dorky glasses" - it's the best way to handle 3D right now, and possibly will be for some time to come (until holographic projection TV comes out). Auto-stereoscopic displays work great for a single viewer at a fixed length viewing distance (ala Nintendo 3DS), but for TVs? Shutter glasses are the best compromise, and they work well.
As for movies, I've seen everything from kiddie movies, regular action features, and even a 3D **** movie (Avatar parody, the concept of a money shot takes on a whole other "ewww" factor in 3D, but boobies... ah... glorious!). Movies made for 3D look great.
I've also seen 2D->3D conversions (Clash of Titans falls into this category, since it was converted in post production), and that can be a turn off. It's worse for movies like Star Wars Ep 4... the conversion I have is probably something even George Lucas himself hasn't seen ...the conversion can do a great job at times, but it can't compensate for scenes that are not set up properly for 3D (too short, or funky transitions), which spoil the effect. Conversions can be hit or miss.
I would also like to add that watching movies in 3D on a standalone BluRay player designed for it was FAR better than on the PS3, which seemed to "stutter" in scenes with a lot of motion (or small objects in 3D).
One last thing: if you do try out 3D at the local TV shop, make sure the glasses match the brand TV. All of the major brands use different tints in their shutter glasses (Mitsubishi uses Samsung shutter glasses, though). When in 3D mode, the TV compensates for the tint.
I sought out 3D last fall because of my health issue - a cancerous tumor (ocular melanoma) was found on the inside of my right eye. The radiation therapy I had back in September is going to dim the eyesight in that eye over the next few years (I already have about 20% of my peripheral vision in that eye blocked, because of the tumor). I want to enjoy the things I can do with both eyes (like 3D) while I can. At least my chances of recovery are pretty high (95~97%, everything looking good as of my last laser therapy a month ago)
