So you’re looking for something special to give that gamer in your life, but you don’t mean just any old thing. You mean a gift that truly defines your loved one’s gamerhood, budget be damned.
We’ve got a few suggestions that will truly blow the berries off any fruitcake given by random neighbors. This is all about the ultimate gaming gifts.
Why would you subject someone to sitting on a mere bean bag when this, the ultimate gaming throne, exists? Take the awesome SecretLab brand as we know it and combine it with Blizzard’s Overwatch series, and you have a seat that lets anyone play their favorite first-person shooter in style. It’s easy to assemble, and quite comfortable in a number of positions. Plus, the orange and black colors really stand out in a gamer’s room.
Want all the thrills of an arcade game, but none of the hard work of upkeep? Tastemakers LLC has just what you need with the Arcade1up games. A cinch to put together, these replicas offer all the excitement of the real deal at a fraction of the price. The Star Wars Arcade1up features Atari’s original arcade trilogy, lovingly recreated with accurate controls and visuals. And the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade1up is perfect for you and your friends to enjoy this holiday season. These cabinets are great for families, too.
Why just settle for a routine game controller when Controller Chaos has you covered? Featuring a number of custom designs, including popular favorites like Star Wars and the above-pictured Toejam and Earl, these controllers are made of the finest materials, and perform like a champ. You can even design your own if the many offered models don’t do the trick.
Let’s say you want a more professional gaming controller, one that has extra functionality for your favorite shooters. Look no further than Evil Controllers, a company that specializes in creating peripherals based around peak performance. With special add-on buttons with additional functionality and a number of custom designs available (such as Fortnite, pictured), these controllers are made with quality to spare.
While it is true that the GSP 670 is one of the most expensive gaming headsets on the market, Sennheiser made sure that it’s also one of the most reliable. Delivering superb surround sound that’s ideal for any gaming experience, the GSP 670 is known as one of the most comfortable headsets out there, easy to adjust and manage. And with its wireless charging, it’ll last around 10 hours uninterrupted, so you can enjoy those prolonged sessions.
These pint-sized arcade units from Numskull stand tall and operate just like the real deal, right down to miniature controls that work for all sizes of players’ hands. And while Galaga and Dig-Dug look like fun, Pac-Man is universally accepted, if only to achieve that high score status and try to flip the tiny screen.
Last but not least, at least in the eyes of designer streetwear enthusiasts, we’d be remiss to not mention the recent collaboration between Louis Vuitton and League of Legends. Despite the game being free to play, the clothing offered within the capsule collection is anything but low-dollar. A sleeveless top will run you $1,440; the round shoulder bag will set you back $2,600 big ones; and the basic black short-sleeve T-shirt featuring Qiyana in her special LV skin (available in-game) will run you a paltry $670. LoL, indeed.
