The Gaming Room: How To Perfect

Posted February 13, 2017 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in Editorials

If you are lucky enough to have a spare room in the home which you can designate as a gaming room then you are going to want to get the best setup to get the most out of it. Gaming can be a great past time that hones the senses and reflexes and even has a social aspect to it these days due to the multitude of great multiplayer games which are played over the internet. To get the most out of your gaming room you should want to set it up in a certain way, this article can help you get started.



In your room you can place some cool furniture which adds to the overall ambiance of the gaming room. You can find some at surface tension. Make sure the room is big enough for the furniture or it’ll end up looking cramped and stuffy. If you can fit furniture there then try hanging a few pictures up. Posters are cool too. You’ll also need to find the right seating arrangements. Some people like a side on glance to the TV whereas others prefer to sit straight on, so lay out the furniture as you need. If you think you’ll have friends in the room playing with you instead of over the internet get a sofa or two chairs instead of one. Don’t skimp, because you’ll be spending an extended amount of time in the chair and you’ll want to be comfortable. If it isn’t, you could end up with back and shoulder problems.

In a gaming room you’ll also want a good TV. They can be expensive, but if you are serious about gaming you’ll want one of the better ones. These days they can come with 4K functionality. The newer consoles are offering 4K output, so getting the appropriate TV means you can get the most out of your console. The images are sharper and the graphics better. In the future all games will put on in 4K. Similar to the HD revolution a few years ago. So if you’re getting a TV be future forward and get one that will last a few years as it will be compatible with consoles to come.

In terms of audio, you can get a surround sound system that can help really put you in the game. Hearing sounds from behind you from the orientation of the character makes a huge difference to the game. If you use headsets a lot then invest in a quality one because some of those also allow for surround sound and give you great quality audio while you can still speak to your friends.

Remember, if you want to get into virtual reality you’ll want to leave a decent space in front of the TV. You should be able to push the sofa back or have unfilled space. For some games you can sit down, but most virtual reality games require you to stand so that the camera can track your movements properly. Get the spacing right and you can have a great VR setup to complement your current gaming room.
