For the 360, I've enjoyed these:
Gears of War 3 - Excellent side-by-side 3D implementation with negligible ghosting and very minor drop in resolution if you set your 360 to 1080p. Played thru the entire campaign in 3D and had a lot of fun.
Halo: Anniversary - I'm playing thru this right now and the 3D implementation is very good. Again, there is a minor but visible drop in resolution but the visuals more than make up for it.
Assassin's Creed: Revelations - This uses the so-called "re-projection" method to achieve 3D with a minimal hit on resolution. To my eyes the sense of depth is still very nice.
Avatar - Another side-by-side 3D game; the campaign isn't the best but the 3D imagery is quite nice. Just be aware that this game has some very bright persistent HUD elements that cannot be turned off and if you have a plasma TV beware of the potential for image retention.
Uncharted 3 - Probably the benchmark for 3D on the PS3 right now with a very minor drop in resolution and hardly any ghosting on any type of panel once you tweak the the TV's 3D convergence settings.
Resistance 3 - Another very good 3D adventure with nice visuals and minimal ghosting.
Tron: Evolution - This one is all about depth but the 3D visuals really co-exist well with the game's virtual world setting. This one displays a little more ghosting than other games so you may have to tweak the game's 3D settings to get the best effect.
Gran Tourismo 5 - 3D racing at 720p; again, you need to calibrate the game's 3D settings for parallax and convergence to get the most pleasing image for your display but once you dial it in, its another nice 3D showcase.
Child of Eden - This recent 3D shooter has a very nice stereoscopic 3D mode though the game itself can be fairly challenging.
Call of Duty: Black Ops also supports 3D on both platforms; it is the only CoD game to support 3D and has a very nice presentation on either console.
