Cool video game accessories that every gamer should own.
In no particular order…
KontrolFreek Stick Extenders
As someone who has used KontrolFreeks for a long time I can honestly say that I can not play a first person shooter without these now. It takes a little getting use to but once you’re comfortable with these bad boys you can up your sensitivity and greatly improve your accuracy. Their MLG legal and are made for all major console controllers (Xbox One, Playstation 4, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3). Shop at Amazon
The Airdrop Gaming HipShotDot
This is a product that I have yet to try but I will definitely be picking up soon. Back in the day when TVs still had glass screens there was an old gamer hack that I had learned. You would take a magic marker and draw a dot in the center of your screen where your gun’s sights would land to increase your hip shots and overall accuracy. It seems like the people over at Airdrop Gaming took that idea to the next level with the HipShotDot. Shop at Amazon
Gunnar Optiks Gaming Glasses
These are not just for gamers! If you’re someone who spends a lot of time staring at screens you can benefit from wearing a pair of Gunnar Optiks. I’ve been using these for a while now and I have to say that they really work. I wear these whenever I game for longer than two hours. They greatly reduce eye strain and help prevent headaches I get from long gaming sessions. Shop at Amazon
A Good Gaming Headset
You don’t need to go spending 300 bucks on a gaming headset. I’ve owned a really expensive Dolby 7.1 Digital surround sound “Brand Name Here” headset and honestly they weren’t all that great. I now own the Kingston HyperX Cloud Stinger that I have pictured above and I love them. What’s even better is that I found them brand new on Offer Up for 30 bucks! So set your price range and shop around a bit before you buy. Also make sure the ones you pick are compatible with your system. Shop at Amazon
If you’re a gamer you’re probably going to be sitting for really long periods of time. So why wouldn’t you fork out a little extra cash for the most comfortable gaming experience that you can have. In this category you have a ton of options you can lounge on a sweet bean bag chair, or rock out in an X Rocker (pictured) and if you’re a PC gamer get yourself a nice computer chair. If you really want to go all out while keeping it classy you can get super comfy a La-Z-Boy recliner. We carry many of these items here at CoolGamerGear.com but as always you can shop at Amazon for more options.
