I'm in the GIS field myself, but I really haven't really used any 3D GIS, but I know people who have. I'm guessing its most useful in making of elevation maps and DEM's as well as collecting things like buildings for emergency mapping or something along those lines.
I do know a lot of that stuff is collected via stereo extraction and not everyone can see stereo images. Not to mention a 3D GIS system probably is more costly and takes more HD space and probably takes more practice to use. Not to mention, you can't print something in 3D unless you have a special printer that does it and those are VERY expensive.

Thank you so much. Truemuck I didn't know that about 3 D now I know something and I think it's much better to use 2 D GIS

It depends on what you using it for. 2D GIS does most things you'll want to do and is cheaper.
