3 Tips For the Perfect Video Game Console Setup

From the groundbreaking Pong of the 1970s to the high-tech virtual reality games of the modern era, video games have been popular from the word “Go!” Americans love their video games, in one form or another, but only 10% of U.S. adults actually describe themselves as a true “gamer.” 

For the casual gamer, a TV screen, a controller, and an hour or two of spare time is all that is needed for some video game fun. For gamers of the candy crushing variety, all you need is a smartphone. But if you’re a real gamer, you’re going to need much, much more. 

To succeed at any craft, you need the right tools. If you’re trying to perfect yours, here is how you can achieve the perfect gaming setup: 

You need a bean bag gaming chair
If you’re planning on spending more than an hour or two playing any console video game, that office desk chair simply won’t suffice. Not only will you start to feel uncomfortable after awhile, you could actually develop some serious back pain in the future. With quality bean bag gaming chairs, however, you’ll be comfortable and ready to play for hours on end. There are even huge bean bag chairs if you and a friend plan on playing some duos. 

Focus on sound quality
No matter what game you’re playing, sound is an integral part of the experience. If you can’t hear those footprints off in the distance or that explosion right behind you, you’re doomed. You should invest in some high quality gaming headphones to make sure that you can hear everything going on around you in the game. Just as importantly, the best gaming headphones allow you to clearly communicate with your teammates (and clearly trash talk your opponents). If you aren’t playing with other people, then make sure that your console gaming setup features plenty of great speakers. 

Limit all possible distractions
If you’re serious about improving your gaming skills, you should make sure that you’re 100% distraction free during gameplay. Keep your phone and all your other devices in another room until you’re done playing for the night. Similarly, don’t let anyone try to distract you from your mission — they’re only trying to ruin your gaming experience. 

Don’t let your gaming experience suffer because you you’re sitting on an uncomfortable desk chair and using sub par speakers. And if you want to find a high quality bean bag gaming chair, contact Sumo Lounge today!
