Hey Epic Geeks,
It’s my birthday month. I always stumble over my words and thoughts when someone asks “what do you want for your birthday?”. Because of that, I decided I’d make a mini-series of gifts that will work for any occasion. There is a variety in the price range, but I can assure you, they’re all extremely appreciated. Today’s topic is the gifts PC gamers will appreciate.
Part 1: Bloggers
Part 2: PC Gamers
If you’re looking for gifts to give someone who isn’t a gamer (or maybe for yourself), here are some of my other posts that might be helpful are 5 Bookcases I Want, Harley Quinn POP! figures, Doctor Who Items I Want.
Mechanical Keyboard (rec: Logitech G910)
Mechanical keyboards are life savers. Literally. When you’re gaming, you want the quickest reaction time possible. Sometimes you, the gamer, can have great reaction time and then your keyboard (and mouse, but we’ll get to that) can slow you down.
Mechanical keyboards last for a while. Personally, I’ve owned the Logitech G710 ($98) for a few years. I would love to upgrade to the Logitech G910 though. The G910 is RGB, meaning it will light up all the fancy colors you want.
5+ Button Mouse (REC: Logitech G502)
Every gamer needs at least a five button mouse. It’s as simple as that.
The purpose of a multi-button mouse is to make gaming easier. You can program those buttons to whatever you want them to be. I tend to play more first person shooters. My push-to-talk button is “button 3”, the button next to my thumb.
Before getting my Blue Yeti (mentioned below), I was an avid headset user just like many gamers. When you’re gaming, especially in first person shooters, you want to be able to hear footsteps but also be able to communicate with your teammates.
Microphone (Rec: Blue Yeti Microphone)
If you want a cheaper starter microphone, the Blue Snowball is an amazing option for around $50 (sometimes cheaper with deals)!
If you have no idea what your gamer wants or they have everything in the world, don’t feel bad about giving them gift cards to buy the games, collectibles, or anything else they’re wanting.
Amazon: ANY AMOUNT (:
There we have it; five perfect gifts for gamers. If you’re a gamer, what would you consider to be the perfect gift? Let me know in the comments below.
In the mean time, keep calm and stay epic,
