# 3D environment for RL research in Academia

I'm doing my thesis on Reinforcement Learning. My focus on Partially Observable Environments like 3D Games. I want to choose a 3D platform for testing and doing research.

I know some of them. DeepMind Lab and OpenAi Universe. But my question is that which of these environments is good for me? Is there any environment for this purpose that is benchmark and reliable?

I want a platform that accepted in Academia and reliable. For example DeepMind is not a standard or Open Source friendly, Is it rational to use their platform for research in academia?

What i have to do?
