So, which "3D" are you talking about, that are just "a pile of moving colors"?
Anyway, some techs are better than others, of course. For example, I've never been a fan of shutter glasses, as they darken the image too much (especially in a lot of cinemas, where the projections are that bright to begin with), whereas the superior polarizing filter glasses are also lighter and more comfortable to wear. Still I'm extremely curious about the look of 3D on the 3DS' screen.
Looking at exactly the same image, but with different colored lenses to half-ass filter out the other side of the image absolutely does not work though, as you can always
partially see the other image. I was referring to instances in which your eyes are actually being shown 2 entirely separate images via stereoscopic lenses, rather than a single filtered image.
Not only does it look inherently wrong, and nowhere near true 3D, but the colors are always clashing like mad and just look like a horrendous mess. This is true of every single type of 3D that I have witnessed in my life.
