Do the glasses work?

I watched Avatar and kept the glasses. Do they make this game 3D?
I know you can set it to RealD, and that's what these glasses are.

Nope, I did the same thing. You need a specific 3D television to use them.

The glasses use polarized filters. In the theatre, you're given 144 frames per second, 72 per eye in different polarization.
 
Nvidia's "RealD" uses shutter glasses with 120 frames, alternating 60 fps for each eye. Computer monitors don't do polarization, and only a small number even do 120hz (which is required for it to work).
 
Either way, your glasses are useless.

No. Even with fancy 3D televisions, your theatre 3D glasses are useless. Different technology.
 
You can play Avatar in 3D if you have a monitor that can do 120hz/240hz as well as software and shutter glasses from Nvidia.
