For all gamers out there, whether your male or female, we all know that the art and science of gaming is actually serious business. Some die-hard gamers even make a livelihood out of it by joining tournaments and winning tons and tons of money. But you don’t need to be a professional gamer to understand the need to have your own man cave or a place made out of every gamer’s dream. So whether you’re already building your own game room or you’re looking to upgrade your current setup, better read on because in this article, we’ll be taking a look at everything you could possibly need to build the game room of your dreams.
Spacious and Soundproof Room
Most people underestimate the need for a spacious game room. That’s why a lot of pro gamers actually use their basement for all their tech stuff because, well, it has a pretty big area you could cover. It should be spacious enough so that you could put tons of stuff that are pertinent to gaming, like your actual setup, a comfy couch, and even a small (or big) snack bar. It should also be big enough so that you are allowed to switch things up and give yourself some room for possible upgrades in the future.
But of course aside from that, every game room must be soundproof cause how else can you enjoy an intense game if you’re just always on your headset? I mean no shame in using such a device but there’s something special about being able to blast your game in full volume without risking the wrath of your beloved. Fortunately, there are tons of ways you can soundproof your room without even spending a lot of cash.
Solid Display Setup
Monitors are definitely essential when planning about your game room. Now if you’re a serious gamer, there isn’t any other choice but to use the best kinds of monitors out there and those are 4k television sets! Honestly, 4k TVs for PS5 and Xbox Series X are the only option there is. Buying anything less would mean doing a disservice to the amazing job talented graphic designers have done to elevate your gaming experience.
Latest Gaming Consoles with the best games
Having your own console or consoles is pretty self-explanatory when you have a game room. Owning a PS5 or an Xbox Series X and of course the Nintendo Switch seems to be a no brainer. So the real question is, what games should you be playing on those devices? That decision is really yours to make.
Fast, Powerful, and Reliable CPU
We have to admit that there are some games that are ultimately better played with the old reliable computer. But if we’re going to talk about gaming, the real star of any PC would be the graphics card and of course at this point in time, that would be the monster GeForce RTX 3080 which is definitely a sweet but pricey buy. But for all I know, if your a hardcore gamer, it’s worth every penny.
A smooth gaming experience (at least for your computer) will never be complete without highly responsive and not to mention durable peripherals. You need a mechanical keyboard that can take a beating and a wireless mouse that can withstand long play hours whenever you’re rushing to beat a high score or obsessing over beating the final boss
Comfy Gaming Chair and Perfect Table
Chairs and tables sound really boring when compared to the other parts of a game room that we previously talked about. But a sturdy and comfortable chair is important for you to maximize your gaming time. A good desk setup would also help you maintain proper posture and a good back despite gaming seriously for hours on end.
Customization and Design
This is of course the last consideration since you’re game room should most definitely reflect your personality. If you’re also a music lover or an actual musician, then instruments and music sheets would be a good addition to your game room. If you like Netflix, then consider adding another bigger monitor for your viewing pleasure. Whatever it is, just be sure it’s not something that would obstruct your actual game flow.
Designing a game room is pretty labor-intensive and absolutely expensive. But for someone who has worked honestly for at least 8 hours each day, this is the least you could do to reap the rewards of your hard work and give yourself time to relax and unwind!
