Gaming Gear

Gaming Gear is subjective and based on personal preference. I’ll recommend some of the gear that I’ve personally used and the brands that I prefer to support, but ultimately, it’s up to you to find what works best for you.

I’ll start this list with some gear you probably don’t own but might want to consider getting as they will help to either optimize your space or to make it a little more aesthetic. From there, I’ll offer a few options for what I consider to be some of the best models for various gaming gear.

Just Remember

While you won’t see an esports player using a ten dollar mouse and a basic wireless keyboard, you also won’t see them testing out every single keyboard, mouse and monitor on the market. It’s pretty difficult to test out a lot of different gaming products. Gamers often stick with what was first comfortable or what was given to them by sponsors. As long as you’re shopping within the gaming products line, the differences between everything is pretty minimal and subjective.

CHAIRS

My overall opinion is that gaming chairs are mostly marketing hype trying to profit off of the booming esports scene. However, there are a few really decent ones that I recommend if you are set on getting yourself one. There are also some benefits for competitive gamers to use a gaming chair (e.g., mimicking competitive environment). You can check out my post on whether gaming chairs are worth it by clicking here.
