5 Gadgets Every Avid Gamer Needs

Gaming Accessories

Every gamer is different which means the games they play, the gadgets they are interested in, and their setups will be different. With that said, there are a few gadgets that every gamer needs, whether they play the latest AAA games or like to play retro games. This article will be focusing on gadgets every gamer should consider adding to their collection and setup.

Gaming Headset

While you can use any headset for your gaming sessions, it is always better to get gaming headphones. These headphones are made to work for longer sessions, meaning they are often lighter and more comfortable than other headphones. Many are made of lightweight materials that also wick sweat away to ensure you are always comfortable.

Another advantage of getting gaming headphones is their sound reproduction. While you want headphones with great sound, you also want a pair that balances the highs, mids, and lows and also gives you directional sound.

That last quality is crucial for those who love first-person shooters because you need to know where everyone else is in relation to your position and great headphones make this possible.

Steelseries, Razer and Logitech gaming headsets are the best options here as their combination of features make them unbeatable.

Gaming Monitor

A gaming monitor is a must-have if you want to enjoy the latest games at high frame rates while enjoying superior colors and contrast. There is so much to think about when it comes to gaming monitors, and it can be confusing to choose one, especially if you don’t know what all the numbers and acronyms mean.

These days, the main things to focus on are the monitor’s size, the resolution, refresh rate, and response time as well as inputs and outputs. Competitive gamers say that a 27-inch, 1440P, 144HZ monitor is the best opinion because it gives you amazing images while not straining your GPU too much. Companies like Lenovo have lots of monitors that fit this description in their lineups.

You also want a monitor that has a low response time as it makes games run more fluidly, and one that has all the inputs and outputs you need for your different devices. Opt for one with at least two HDMI ports and a display port so you can connect both your computer, console, and other devices to it at the same time.

Retro Gaming Console

If you grow up in the age of Sonic and Super Mario Bros., you might be interested in getting a retro gaming console. Many of them are going on sale right now, and it is possible to get one with a selection of games at a great price.

There are some things to remember if you decide to get one. First, you might need to find new game controllers or be willing to repair the ones you get with the console. Second, you might have to find a CRT TV if you want to get the full retro gaming experience.

Modern monitors and displays smooth out the image you get out of these consoles which can negate the utility of the retro gaming console.

There are numerous options to consider here, with Nintendo being the better option because there are so many Nintendo consoles on sale that are in good order.

Handheld Console

Handheld consoles are back in a big way, especially after Steam announced its Steam Deck handheld console. With there being a lot of interest in this gaming form factor, a lot of companies have also released their own handheld consoles, presumably to beat Steam to the market.

The Nintendo Switch, AYA Neo, and One X Player are the main options here.

Gaming Capture Card

Most gamers now stream their gaming sessions or capture the footage for review later. If this sounds like you, then you need a gaming capture card. These cards work with your PC, although there are models from Elgato that work with any PC and modern gaming console.

These low-latency capture cards have been hailed as the perfect solution for any gaming content creator regardless of the system or software they use, or the games they play.

The gaming world is huge, and you cannot exhaustively go through it all when finding devices for gamers. We have, however, found some gadgets avid gamers will love to add to their collections and setups. These accessories can also be sent as Gadget gifts.
