HARDCORE PC GAMERS KNOW THIS:
PC GAMING IS MORE THAN HAVING A DESKTOP OR LAPTOP PC.
From the keyboard to the headset to the controller, there are many accessories that can make PC gaming much more fun.
Gamers today are lucky because it seems that every accessory for the PlayStation or XBox is now compatible with PCs. This also means that you can replicate the gaming experience in those consoles with a PC.
Here are some of the accessories I would recommend to hardcore gamers:
LOGITECH G920 RACING WHEEL
If you like playing titles like Asetto Corsa, I suggest you get this one. It is a well-built accessory with bearings and pedals made of solid steel. It is very responsive, too. You would also be impressed with the interface giving quick and easy access to gaming controls. The unit’s floor pedal also enables you to break and quickly change gears– giving you the impression that you are actually driving a real car.
HYPERX CLOUD GAMING HEADSET
This is a great gaming headset. It’s not only compatible with PCs but also with PS4 and mobile phones so it is very versatile. It is lightweight, too, at around 12 ounces. The memory foam ear cups is made of leatherette and does a great job of isolating noise.
HORI REAL ARCADE PRO 4
Like the item preceding it, this accessory is not only compatible with a PC but also PS3 and PS4. This is the accessory you would like to have if you enjoy playing games such as Tekken or Marvel vs. Capcom. Aside from the touchpad, it comes with a side panel where turbo controls are located.
MICROSOFT XBOX 360 WIRED CONTROLLER
Yes, you read that right. This is a Xbox 360 wired controller that can be used on your desktop or laptop PC. One advantage of this controller is many gamers (especially adults like me) have become so familiar with the Xbox-style button so they just plug it in a USB port. You can also opt for the wireless version although it’s a lot more expensive, so go with this one.
CORSAIR 55 GAMING KEYBOARD
This is the best gaming keyboard right now, at least in my book. It is a highly responsive yet quiet keyboard. It has six programmable small buttons with multi-key anti-ghosting. It also has a detachable rubber mat that can ensure comfort for your wrist. And most importantly, it is budget-friendly at less than $50.
