Who says PC gamers don’t need a controller? Gone are the days when gamers thought controllers are only meant to be used on PlayStation and XBox console. Now, most prefer to use gamepads or console controllers to be able to play smoothly, especially when playing FPS, RPG, racing games and sports games. I’m sure he’ll appreciate it if he receives a brand new gaming controller this day of love.
Sounds is a crucial part of gaming. It adds up to the whole gaming experience, and SFX or Sound Effects do matter. It is one of the key elements that can distinguish a good game from a bad one. Although most PCs have speakers, gamers prefer the immersion gaming headset can bring to the game because it helps you clearly hear the sound design. Most RTS and FPS co-op players also prefer using gaming headset because of its built-in microphones, allowing them to easily communicate with their co-players.
And lastly, don’t forget bags of Doritos and Dr. Pepper!
