3D Horror Games
3D gaming can be an incredible experience by itself, but adding the heart-pounding excitement of a horror game can take the gameplay to a whole new level. Horror games are designed specifically to bring a scary environment to the computer or TV screen. New technology, however, can make 3D horror games electrifying, bringing frightening elements right off the screen.
Whether it be through the parallax barrier of the new Nintendo 3DS or polarized anaglyphs available through the PlayStation 3 and Nvidia 3D Vision for the PC, 3D horror games are being given new life. Horror games are notorious for falling flat in the past. Two franchises, Resident Evil and F.E.A.R., have managed to not only provide great horror gaming, but have also become mainstays of the horror genre. Both series are now expanding into the 3D gaming arena.
Resident Evil is poised to make a splash on both the Nintendo 3DS and the PC. The 3DS is actually getting two new games: Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D. Both of these games will be new additions to the franchise, featuring classic characters in brand new storylines, adding new depth to the already rich history of Resident Evil. Best of all, thanks to the autostereoscopic screen of the 3DS there will be no need for glasses to see the 3D effects built into the games.
Nvidia 3D Vision for the PC went a different route, adding 3D support to the already released Resident Evil 5. Nvidia's revolutionary software is able to convert game images into polarized anaglyph images. When viewed through LC shutter glasses, the game will almost leap off the screen as you play.
The F.E.A.R. series is another popular horror franchise making the move to 3D because of Nvidia. All three games, F.E.A.R., F.E.A.R.: Perseus Mandate, and F.E.A.R.2: Project Origin, gained quite a following when they first appeared on PCs. When Nvidia released their 3D Vision package, they included backward compatibility for the entire series. In brilliant 3D, the F.E.A.R. games are likely to scare the pants off you.
Be sure to keep in mind the eye strain issue associated with 3D viewing. Viewing anaglyph images for extended periods of time can cause serious headaches. Combine this risk with the bright flashes and quick cuts commonly found in the horror genre and it could be a recipe for pain. It's incredibly important to take periodic breaks from gameplay to avoid potential damage to the eyes.
Even with this risk, though, horror games are sure to be one of the most popular genres in 3D gaming. Just about everybody loves a good scare, and with effects jumping out at you, 3D horror games are sure to deliver a fright.
