I don't think you know what 3D Vision is, Quinn. It has no relation to the "3d glasses cinema bullshit" you refer to
How do? 3D Vision is 3D using stereoscopic glasses.
I tried it once at PAX several years ago with Res Evil 5. I hated it. I don't want to wear headgear and I don't feel that 3D makes my gaming any more enjoyable. After seeing a few movies in 3D I don't care to see another. A good movie is a good movie. 3D doesn't help movies but definitely hinders them.
3D glasses at the cinema use passive technology at 24fps, which creates that cheesy 3d movie effect that just looks fake. 3D Vision uses active technology and allows for 60fps, which makes games look like real life, and is quite obviously amazing to witness. It's the only new visual technology worth mentioning since the release of the first 3DFX card, imo. OK, maybe the advent of AA+AF is also a big deal. Let's say in the last 10 years then.
if you hated 3D Vision when you tried it, there is a very likely explanation: it wasn't properly configured. the system has to be set up by someone who knows what they're doing (note: an nvidia employee or whatever being there is far from a guarantee of that). you may also have tried the older 3d vision 1 system, which wasn't as good. in any case, I mean, I'm at a loss here. I understand that wearing glasses is a technical limitation, but the way I see it, it's sure as hell better to deal with than 2D. at least you forget you're wearing the glasses after a few minutes, whereas in 2D the game will remain unimpressive, flat and lifeless forever.
