Computer games have not lost popularity for a long time, and many of us and our friends will surely be able to call themselves gamers. And every gamer, of course, will be happy to receive a gift that matches his interests. That is why we have selected some excellent options that will please everyone in whose life there is a place for computer games.
For gamers who prefer to play on PC, one of the most important elements of the so-called gaming set-up is the keyboard and mouse. In order to be the fastest and most agile in games, it is imperative to use the best technique. To do this, as a rule, you should pay attention to the parameters (resolution, sensitivity, etc.), but you probably don’t want to understand them in detail, so it’s easier to immediately rely on reviews about specific brands.
For example, Razer is a world-famous manufacturer of gaming accessories, and one of the most popular gaming mice is the Razer Naga Trinity with three interchangeable side panels. The peculiarity of this mouse is that, depending on the type of games you prefer, you can choose the most suitable side panel with programmable buttons. Of course, with the right software from Razer, it will also be possible to adjust the backlight of the mouse.
The Razer model line also includes gaming keyboards, such as the Razer Ornata. This keyboard is appreciated by gamers for its keystroke, ergonomic design, which provides dynamics and comfortable maneuverability in the game. The keyboard also features a padded wrist rest to keep your hands comfortable during long gaming sessions. Stylish lighting on the Razer Ornata is also present, so any gamer will appreciate such a gift.
Even PC gamers can’t deny the convenience of simple console controllers, and in some games it’s much more convenient to use a gamepad rather than a mouse. Most gamepads are suitable for use with a computer, so if among your friends there are gamers who do not yet have a gamepad, then it will be a good gift.
Gamepad from Logitech is suitable for both computers and consoles. It connects with a long USB cable, so you can enjoy games in the way that suits you. The joystick has a comfortable ergonomic shape, making it comfortable to hold despite its compact size. All buttons are conveniently and habitually located and easy to press. The rugged construction ensures a long service life even with frequent use.
Previously, a mouse pad was considered just a convenient accessory, and even now, in many cases, we use a mouse without a mouse pad. However, when it comes to gaming, this is a very important element that can provide better mouse movement and, as a result, better performance in games. For this, of course, it is not enough to choose just a small rug with a beautiful print, on the contrary, it should be a thoughtful and convenient accessory. Therefore, we will look again at Razer products. This time it’s an Invicta rug. This model is two-sided, and each side provides certain advantages. The smooth surface provides faster mouse gliding and is great for shooters. The reverse, rough side is suitable for better resistance and control over mouse movement. So this rug is really versatile. Its appearance is neat and stylish, the collection has two different colors: Mercury (white / gray), Quartz (gray / pink).
virtual reality helmet
Perhaps this gift would please not only enthusiastic gamers, but even game lovers, because virtual reality, even if it is still developing, but who doesn’t want to try not just to look at the game worlds, but to be in them? That is why a helmet can be perhaps the best gift for a connoisseur of virtual worlds.
One of the first companies to take notice of VR technology is Oculus Rift, and their CV1+ Touch helmet is one of the most popular. The display resolution is 2160x1200 pixels, and the viewing angle is 110 degrees. Built-in headphones provide three-dimensional sound, and thanks to the ability to adjust the distance between the lenses, both adults and children can use the glasses. You can use the helmet with a Windows computer, and the kit includes several VR games on which you can immediately check the operation of the device.
The controllers are easy to operate and have mounts that prevent them from dropping during the game. Definitely such a gift will bring a lot of pleasure to any player.
Cooling pad for laptop
Many gamers play not only on stationary computers, but also on powerful laptops. And one of the most common laptop problems is overheating. Even powerful gaming devices can get very hot when overloaded, so a cooling pad never hurts.
The stand from Cooler Master is suitable for laptops with a diagonal of 15 inches, and you can adjust the degree of cooling yourself. The stand works almost silently, no louder than the cooler built into the laptop, so it will not affect the process of playing and working on the laptop. The stand works by connecting via a USB port. The stand itself weighs 790g and is equipped with legs that allow you to change the angle of its inclination and height. As for the design, the stand looks simple and neat, and you can use it anywhere and anytime. Any games will be on your shoulder.
Joystick for flight simulators
If you try to play flight or space sim games with a keyboard, you will quickly realize that the activity is inconvenient and inefficient. But the solution is quite simple: a special controller.
Logitech G Saitek X52 Flight Control System allows you to fully simulate the process of flight control. The LCD display will show you all assigned buttons and the timer at a glance, and the controller can be adjusted for both right-handed and left-handed operation. It gives you agility and easy, smooth control of an aircraft or a spaceship, depending on the game you choose. You will quickly get used to the control with this joystick, and stop imagining the game without it. And of course, for any gamer, especially a fan of flight simulators, this joystick will be a very valuable gift.
If you are a gamer, then most likely you love racing. Or at least tried to play them. So as a gift to a connoisseur of games, you can always choose a convenient setting for driving simulation. The Speedlink Black Bolt steering wheel makes the player feel like driving a real car. Realism is only complemented by the presence of vibrations during collisions and landings. The angle of rotation of this steering wheel is 180 degrees. The steering wheel is very easy to connect using Plug and Play technology and is compatible with Windows.
