Recent results of numerical simulations of fully nonlinear evolutionary equations for long-crested deep-water waves are discussed, where formation of extreme waves was observed. Several examples demonstrate that three-dimensionality of the fluid motion has an essential influence on the process of rogue wave formation. In particular, in the presence of elongate wave groups, the most tall extreme waves occur when in an initial state the wave fronts were oriented obliquely to the direction of the…
