For a few years now, gaming has become a professional sport. Although many people already spent their days playing on their computers, now that some make money with it, it is more important than ever to create our own gaming room. Here are a few of the elements you need to keep it in mind, as you are creating your new environment.
Building your own Computer Case
If there is one thing “wannabe” professional gamers have to keep in mind, is that they need to have their own style. It will make a difference once they get into competitions, as many of the viewers, choose their favourite competitors, by their look and the environment they have created around themselves. So, don’t hesitate to take out the plasma cutter, and start building a case that will have a high visual impact, in a post-modern way.
Buy the Most Comfortable Chair
If you don’t take the time to find the best gaming chair for your body, your career won’t last very long. Staying seated for long periods at a time can be very dangerous for your health. You can find yourself with musculoskeletal problems as well as neck issues, to name but a few of the health dangers you face. There are specialized chairs which ensure that your posture is optimal and supports all body parts, as they should be. Do not look at the price tag for this item. Get the best one; you will be grateful you did, in the future.
Get a Spacious Desk
Of course, the desk is a crucial element of a gamer room. It needs to be spacious, as you may require to position many different computer screens on it. It is also where the mouse and the computer keyboard will be positioned, two accessories that can make the difference between losing and winning. Again, the style has to fit with the computer tower case. Therefore, you may have to take the plasma cutter out again…
This may seem like a minor point, but it isn’t. With the number of cables involved in gaming, you need to make sure the room is extremely well organized. There are cable clips which you can use to group all of them together, at various lengths, so that they never get in the way or that you don’t close any of your equipment, unintentionally.
In the end, lighting will be what makes the most difference in the room. Choose it according to your preference, when you are playing. Keep in mind that many people will be watching you, if you turn pro, so a little eccentricity would not be a bad thing.
