Gaming is one of the most popular hobbies across the world, and it’s easy to understand why. With the many pressures we face in the real world on a daily basis, like working the job, paying taxes, and trying to keep on top of all the stress, it is very obvious why we all need some escapism from time to time. Stepping out of the daily grind and into a world where you’re a powerful knight, a skilled sports player, or even just a simple farmer can take some of that stress away and soothe our minds. That’s why it’s very important that our dose of relaxation comes on the best terms and that we don’t have it ruined by any inconveniences. If you’re looking to achieve that, take a look at these resource for gaming on the next level.
Even if sometimes it’s not the best for us, we usually spend a lot of hours in front of our PC or console playing our favorite games. That time can be made quite worse if we’re using a cheap office chair. While everyone games to the standard that they can and that’s perfectly understandable, many users disregard their chair as a part of their setup, instead of going for other, less useful additions like RGB lighting or even spending every coin they make on their hardware. However, a chair with good support for our back will go quite a bit further in terms of improving our gaming experience than a set of color-switching lights or the latest greatest video card (provided the one we’ve got is still up to industry standard). If you’ve ever stood up after a session and felt like you’ve been kicked on the floor, it may be time to switch to a better chair. There are plenty of offers across all price ranges so make sure to make your investigations and pick the best you can afford.
When picking a new mouse people often fixate on how they look or whether they fit the rest of their setup, but try and check whether they have programmable buttons as well. A programmable mouse is a mouse that comes with buttons you can freely assign new functions to, like specific functions within a game or mirroring different buttons, like say the space bar or any other key on your keyboard. While they’re particularly useful for players of RPGs and MMOs (with their astonishing amount of spells and combos), they can be quite useful for gamers of any genre and aren’t all that more expensive than more conventional mice.
Humans are somewhat biased towards visual input. So much so that other senses are said to be heightened when one loses eyesight, like it has been reported on many blind and partially blind people. While the odds of you becoming Daredevil are minimal, you shouldn’t underestimate the rest of your senses while you still enjoy fully functioning eyes. When it comes to gaming, hearing is the one people forget at times.
It’s all good with your 8k, 98 inches, fifteen quintillion colors LED monitor, but don’t forget about your audio gear. No matter how good characters sound on your screen, they won’t feel as real or immersive if their voice comes through some run-of-the-mill standard headphones or speakers. In general, speakers are quite a lot more expensive, so headphones are likely to bring you a better price/quality experience. Regardless, be sure not to forget about it when planning your next setup.
