Innovation Vs Gimmick

I don't think anyone brought this innovation/gimmick up yet.  Were those LCD Shutter "3-D" glasses for the Sega Master System any good?  Did they make things look fairly 3-dimensional, or did they just give you a headache after a while?  If that sort of thing actually worked, I seems ...

I've lost interest

<P style="MARGIN: 0px">Except for an occasional trip down Atari 8-bit memory lane, I didn't play many games from about 1990 through 1998.   Then my wife got me a Playstation for my birthday (she probably regrets that decision) and I got a taste of Resident Evil 2 and Gran Turismo and haven...
