if you are saying that 3d is a joke for gaming, you have never tried it on a proper setup.
3d in games is far different from movies, an entire second image is rendered from a different, adjustable, angle; in movies you are dealing with a fixed image.
Shutter glasses are the most comfortable way to view 3d as your head orientation has no affect on the 3d, and in a proper configuration there is little to no ghosting (or eye strain)
Parralax requires your head to remain perpendicular to the display, it is ok on my phone, but not desirable with a fixed display
polarization (circular anyway) is okay, but ghosting can still be an issue when your head is in motion.
I just have a hard time understanding the "if i have to wear glasses then i dont need 3d" argument. Are people so vain? you could make the same argument about headsets or any of 100 daily use items.
I guess what im saying is, you do not look cool out and about in public playing games; wearing some glasses to improve your personal experience isnt tipping the scales. Enjoy your self, and stop worrying about "gaming fashion".
For the record i agree about 80% of 3d movies are trash, though there are some gems.
