Why I Prefer 2D Over 3D

however i do have to point out, certain times of games work well with certain types of camera positions and depth. an FPS game is a totally different experience from a 2D side-scrolling shooter. (Contra vs. Halo) both are great experiences but they are very different experiences even if they have similarities in the gameplay, adding that 3rd dimension changes the experience a lot and i don't think it takes away from it at all. it lets you explore a more realistic world and can be a great system for many different genres of gaming.

I don't prefer either.
Although, have you heard of the game Fez? It's 2D and 3D at the same time. It is also not 2.5D.
I've never played it, but I really want to.

Oh, and here is another reason why I prefer 2D. Simplicity! :D (This does not count the strategy games...)
Just a note that I've never said that I don't like 3D. I just have a preference.
I do agree with a lot of points made by the people here. I guess it all depends on the game's genre.

3: Again, really? Does this mean you find it difficult to memorise the layout of your house, or your town, because these locations exist in a three-dimensional universe? Would you find it significantly easier if they existed in a two-dimensional universe?
Not much to say at 2 and 4, as they're just facts. 1 and 3, I find invalid. Possibly because I have great spacial awareness. However, you have ignored the advantages of 3D games, which you must not do if you want a balanced and educated opinion. In fact, you should be biased toward 3D games to compensate for involuntary bias.
My own opinion is neutral; I decide whether a game is good based on how well it plays, not how many dimensions it has. For instance, I enjoy 3D games like Minecraft, Portal and Team Fortress 2. But I also enjoy 2D games like Plants vs. Zombies, Purple and Dynamite Jack.
