%%* ''RailroadTycoon''.
* ''RollerCoasterTycoon 3'' was in full polygonal graphics, unlike the first two games. It even allowed to ride a coaster in first-person view.

For a period in the Eighties, it was not uncommon for the third film in a series to be released [[ThreeDMovie in 3D]]. With the current flood of 3D film releases, this has once again become common practice. It may or may not also be [[SequelGoesForeign set in a foreign country]].

* Subverted with the ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' franchise. While there are two primary games in the form of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' and ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'', ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D'' is not part of the sequence. It's instead more of a GaidenGame on the Nintendo3DS, while the actual third game is simply ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII''.

* How does one forget ''Franchise/{{Age of Empires}}'' ? The first two were barely isometric, the third blew away it's competition in the 3D graphics part.

to:

* The first two ''VideoGame/{{Trine}}'' games used polygonal graphics for its backgrounds and characters, but gameplay was strictly on a two-dimensional plane. ''VideoGame/{{Trine}} 3: The Artifacts of Power'' brought the game into full 3D.

* The official title of ''VideoGame/{{Doom}} 3'' is actually ''Doom³'', the "cubed" is interpreted by some as meaning "3D". This one is interesting, as it announced a switch from [[TwoAndAHalfD "fake" 3D]] to "true" [[PolygonalGraphics polygon-based 3D]].

* Nintendo 64: While not stereoscopic 3D and did not have 3D in its name, it was Nintendo's third console and the first with PolygonalGraphics.

* The third ''VideoGame/DJHero'' game would have been a Nintendo3DS spin-off entitled DJ Hero 3D. The game appears to have been cancelled, however. You have ''[[FranchiseKiller Warriors of Rock]]'' to blame for it (although Activision has acknowledged that had ''DJ Hero'' not existed to begin with, ''GuitarHero'' may still be up and running).

* PlayStation3: Not at first, but eventually gained 3DTV support via a firmware update.
* PaperMario might be an example or inversion depending on if you view Super Paper Mario as a spinoff or not.
** Super Paper Mario might be an inversion, as normal gameplay is in 2-D, and 3-D is instend an optional feature only Mario can use.
** Alternatively, Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the 3DS is the third game if you consider SPM to be a spinoff considering its change of gameplay.

* Command & Conquer, the third games in both the Tiberium series and the Red Alert series used a 3D engine. Also, if you consider VideoGame/{{Dune2000}} as a separate game instead of a remake of [[VideoGame/DuneII Dune 2]] (which was actually the first game, but that's a different trope), then VideoGame/EmperorBattleForDune counts as well.
