In fact, we have so many choices these days that it’s pretty darn easy to fall prey to option paralysis. So what kind of setup suits you? Fortunately for you, we’ve broken down the different gaming setups available so you won’t have to rack your brains trying to figure out the answer. See if you can readily determine which profile you are and go for that setup.
Always on the Run: Nintendo Switch
Are you the type of person who’s always on the move? Then the Nintendo Switch may very well be the perfect gaming console to supplement your active lifestyle. It’s convenient and it’s portable. Its got the niftiest of features, making it a solid choice for on-the-go gaming. Incidentally, most of its exclusive games are great for incremental sessions. From The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild to Smash Brothers, you can indulge in short bursts of gaming joy because you can easily put the console down at any time without feeling the need for a full-blown ‘thon.
The Downside: It obviously lacks the hardware that the other gaming setups possess. Also, it falls a bit short in terms of multiplayer activities as its gaming scene isn’t conducive to competitive activities.
The Entertainment Enthusiast: PS4, Xbox One
Are you the type of gamer who prefers the plug and play approach? Why bother with the nitty-gritty of technical specs when you can dive right into the fun, right? There’s perhaps no better experience to a true-blue gamer than sitting in front of a console and zoning out for hours on end, indulging in a masterfully-crafted game. Long hours of fun await you with the PS4 and Xbox One, both with their own subscription services (PlayStation Network and Xbox Live). With these consoles’ extensive libraries, you won’t be left wanting for title variety. On top of that, you’ve also got the option to binge-watch your favorite shows via Netflix or Youtube.
The Downside: It’s not a customizable gaming experience. You can’t experience upgrades unless you buy the newer, better versions.
The Entertainment Connoisseur: The PC Master Race
Are you the type of gamer who absolutely has to have the most radical rig possible? The PC setup is for the gamer who takes utmost pride in his or her hands-on approach. It’s for someone who takes joy in building a personalized experience from scratch. From the core desktop right down to the basic accessories (mouse, keyboard, monitor), everything is within your reach with the PC—provided you have the budget for it, of course!
And even if you don’t have the initial budget, you still have the option to start things from a solid base and work your way up to a respectable rig when the money rolls in. A core desktop will last for years. When the time comes, you can go for the big bang and add a Solid State Drive (SSD). An essential upgrade for sure; all other components are just layers of icing on the cake. You can live without a mechanical keyboard or a precision mouse, for sure, but if you do indulge yourself, you’ll definitely take your gaming experience to a whole new level. To top it all off, you can also geek out on music, ebooks, movies, and TV series with your PC.
The Downside: You need a bit of technical know-how to build a kickass rig.
