    Depends on the movie.

    Edit: The local movie theater has 4DX, but I haven't tried it yet.

    3D movies every time. 3D gaming needs a reboot. Immersion without the nausea of VR. A UHD monitor with a glasses free 3d 1920x2160 gaming resolution would be good.

    3D if I can be assured that they've filmed it properly in the first place.
    If they haven't, then at best I'll be picking holes in it....

    I cannot wait for the day I have stupid amounts of cash and can buy my own VR headset - Hopefully there'll be a bunch of movies I can use it with!

    Re: QOTW: How do you prefer to watch movies: 2D or 3D?

    It all depends on the movie, and on what format.

    3D blu-rays are great on a good 4K display as you get a full 1920x1080 picture to each eye.

    3D if it has been done right the first time. Some 3d films are awful where some are mind blowing.

    I would say the same as I have seen some films in 3D like Avatar , Judge Dredd etc etc that were done with 3D in mind when they were produced.

    The type of films that it is just a bolt-on effect I generally tend to view the 2D versions which my wife prefers as she gets headaches from wearing the 3D specs.

    2D. 3D is more of a gimmick that simply distracts from a story.

    Well, I never go to the cinema and when you watch as many films as I do, at least three or four a year, there is no point investing in 3D capable hardware.
