Is Godot a good engine to choose for 3d? Is it comparable to engines like Unity or Unreal? (I'm thinking about graphics, and scriptability, whether it's efficient etc.) Are there any 3D games that were made with Godot?

Godot can do decent 3D. It's far from being the best at it, but it is improving (3.0 was already a huge step forward). You can use PBR, write custom shaders and use many built-in post-processing effects, however it is less customizable than Unity or Unreal, and less performant. Progress is being done for future versions (4.0 will have a faster Vulkan backend with more pipeline customization support).
