Do you spend hours gaming? Then be sure to get the right equipment. Now we don’t mean the computer you’ll be playing on – but rather the accessories that will take care of both your comfort and health. Here’s what’s most important.
- Start with the basics
Anything you spend hours everyday doing needs the right equipment. You wouldn’t play football with a deflated ball or just one boot, would you? So – if you’re an avid gamer, you really need a good chair. That’s why it’s worth investing in the best you can afford. The right gaming chair will also take care of your back and cervical spine, in addition to providing a comfortable seating area. Get one that is ergonomically built, has optimal adjustability, a detachable head rest, lumbar pillows, high quality seat padding, as well as well-built armrests.
In addition to chairs, special height-adjustable gaming desks are also great. Sometimes they are also equipped with a positioning board for placing the keyboard or LED backlighting, which should always be included in your gaming room.
- The right accessories
A specially adapted keyboard is an essential part of your gaming equipment. It differs from the regular one mainly by better ergonomics and button design, but also by the possibility to program the buttons according to your needs, or add backlighting.
A special gaming mouse is similar. Here, the sensitivity of the sensor is higher, as well as the durability, as it is designed for a heavier load than in the case of a regular office mouse. Choose your mouse according to the type of games you play most often on your computer.
- Headphones and other stuff
All games come with a soundtrack. If you want to enjoy it without distractions from your surroundings, you’ll need a good quality headset. Gaming headsets are comfortable enough and equipped with a microphone so you can communicate with your teammates.
Other accessories include controllers (steering wheels, gamepads and joysticks) that greatly improve the gaming experience, or gaming glasses for better vision, accuracy and elimination of unpleasant glare and blue light.
Always remember to get the proper storage for your equipment – there is really no use in spending a fortune on accessories and furniture, then neglecting the care of it.
