A video game lover is like a sportsperson, the only difference is that his/her playing field is the couch! Just like any other sportsperson, a true gamer is always on the look out for techniques and products which would enhance his/her gaming experience and performance. The following is a buying guide for some such products/gaming accessories.
If you love PC games, here are two accessories you must have-
Good quality headsets- You will be able to enjoy your game fully, if your headsets allow you to hear the minutest sounds in your game. For instance the sound of the engine of a car a split second before it overtakes you, creates the difference between winning and losing!
Mouse and mouse pads - Professional gamers need a mouse which moves smoothly and is easy to handle. For a slightly higher price one can also buy a mouse which can remember settings and macros when plugged into tournament computers - without installing any drivers or software. Mouse pads which give a good grip and allow precise movements are a must have for all gamers.
Xbox owners can invest in game pads to enhance their playing experience. Some of the most popular ones available in the market are the wireless and i.glow models.
For Wii lovers, the accessory market has a lot to offer. You can choose from a variety of sport kits and turbo wheels to make your gaming experience more real. If you are a fitness freak, you can also consider investing in a Wii fitness mat or fitness kit, so that you can play mat based exercise games.
Apart from these based on your needs, you can also have a look at other gaming peripherals such as component wires, portable chargers, game travel bags as well as gaming attachments such as shotguns and crossbows etc.
