Gamers, how many times have you sat and wondered, “man, I wish I had the ultimate gaming setup”; “I’d love to have that gaming setup in my home because it is so awesome”. I’ve done this a time or two myself and I still kind of do it today. Gamers having their own gaming setup is as important as gaming itself. Anyone can prop a gaming console up on a storage bin or even inside of an entertainment center.

I’d start right here

However, any gamer knows that they will never have true gaming peace until they create their own gaming setup. But, the problem is that money is an issue with most of us gamers; I can relate because I too have an idea about my ideal gaming setup but lack the funds in which to build it.

What about your ideal gaming snack or gaming food, what do you consider to be the perfect gaming snack; a food item that you cannot play any game without or play a long time without? I know one thing, we gamers can all agree that having the ideal gaming setup would make our gaming domain a gamer’s paradise. Well, this is my ideal gaming setup and recommendations if money was not an issue.

The Recommended Choice of Gaming Chair(s)

The first time I ever heard of a gaming chair was around my early teens i.e. ’93/’94, and it made me thirsty for one. I had one around that time but it didn’t last because of the quality or lack thereof when it came to supporting the weight of people. I’ve wanted to get another ever since then, but I’ve been doing my research and I wanted to not just relax while playing my video games but I want to feel as if I’m immersed in the game as well.

My gaming chair would be this….

My ideal choice for gaming chairs is obviously the X-Rocker gaming chairs because of their ability to be able to connect any console to it and the sound quality of the game being heard even through the chair which is awesome as a whole.

until I got enough money to buy THIS!

Then I thought, “why stop at a game chair when I can just find a “station” of sorts and that’s when I came upon the gaming workstation”. These, in my opinion, are the ultimate in gaming tech. I’ve wanted one the moment I laid eyes on it; the cheapest one is about $3300.00 on Amazon, it is worth it on every single gaming level. I’d buy one in a heartbeat if I could because no gaming setup is complete without one!

Gaming Desks, Preferably One That Will Hold All Game Systems

Now, I know there are times when money is tough but we gamers aspire to have that perfect gaming setup so we usually try to start from the bottom up which starts with the gaming desk or the ideal gaming desk. For me, the ideal gaming desk is one that is a 2 in 1 desk where you can put so much on one like a small flat screen television and one of your game systems and another game system on another part of the desk.

This is what I’m talking about!

Incidentally, a gaming desk is an intricate part of any gaming setup because it does two things. The first, it alleviates any chance of you putting your gaming system back in its box or whatever it is you have it in. Two, easy access; which, if we’re being honest, is what we gamers want.

Currently, I have 4 gaming consoles PS2, PS3 and PS4 including my retro gaming console; I’d love nothing more than to connect a couple of plugs into the television or power strip and get gaming while all of them on the gaming desk.

In the basement or secondary room, away from any animals or not have any

The horrible, horrible truth is that many of us gamers have pets be it dogs or cats or a combo of the two. Incidentally, pets are not allowed anywhere near our gaming setup because of their destructive nature and their ability to pee on just about anything; its an unwritten rule.

Awesome setup!

However, my idea for the perfect place for my gaming setup is in the basement; the perfect room away from the rest of the world. But, if basements aren’t your thing then a secondary room is okay as well. Either way, make sure your setup is away from any animal contact; basements probably aren’t ideal places if you have more than 10 of any pet.

Another reason why the basement is an ideal place is because of peace, gaming in peace is a like a paradise for us gamers; nothing but empty space and loud noise that’s coming from our games. Ultimately, if you’re going to have your game setup in the basement might I suggest you don’t have any pets/animals.

Multi-Socket Power Strip, video gaming without one is not an option!

This is a no-brainer, getting a multi-socket power strip to compliment your gaming desk is an absolute must. I recommend this because if you’re a gamer that do not particularly care for plugging up a game system every single time you want to play then you’re definitely advised to get one. Personally, I had two back when I was in college and I have one right now that I use but it hardly needs to be said but trying to plug two or more gaming consoles into the wall is not an option you should exercise.

I wouldn’t be caught dead gaming without one of these

The great thing about these power strips is that you can plug up your television and gaming consoles, it cannot be argued that keeping them plugged in gives gamers the option of just sitting down and going right to the gaming action. Despite how cheap these are to come by, it is definitely recommended that you get your hands on one because it makes accessing your gaming tech so much easier.

On a related tip, I always put my PS3 and PS4 up when I’m done playing them. But, I would like to keep them plugged into the power strip and just put a cover on them when I’m not playing them; ideally.

Ideal Gaming Snack

Alright gamers, time for the coup de grace; the gaming snacks. I’ve been playing video games for 28 1/2 years and I could tell you that I didn’t once think about a gaming snack. Coincidentally, it wasn’t until I started working on God of War PS4 that I got interested in having a gaming snack. My ideal gaming snack is the Chewy Sour Sweet Tarts; I love the taste and how the sour is so tangy that it practically explodes in your mouth.

You can’t go wrong with either of these

Many ideal gaming snacks consist of Pizza Rolls, Mountain Dew along with Doritos which are great gaming snacks because they add to the gaming experience; you truly know you’re in gaming paradise when you’re playing your favorite games and having your ideal gaming snack.

If you’re a lover of everything sour then you have to try the aforementioned gaming snack, the Chewy Sour Sweet Tarts because they don’t leave behind a candy residue which can do some serious damage to your controllers like Doritos or Sour Skittles; pizza rolls are good too because they are miniature and go right in your mouth which goes good with Mountain Dew. Any gaming snack is ideal as long as it satisfies you; these are my recommendations and that alone.


For many of us gamers, gaming is our life, our everything but there are many of us who seek to have the ideal gaming setup that would turn our environment into a gaming paradise. Gaming setup that includes, the right gaming chair which could be a gaming workstation or the illustrious X-Rocker gaming chair. The ideal gaming desk is one that preferably holds all of our gaming systems along with the flat screen television.

A gaming setup in the basement is ideal if you don’t have any pets or a secondary room in the house is another ideal place; video game tech is too expensive to replace if you have pets that use the bathroom everywhere. No gaming setup is complete without a multi-socket power strip along with that ideal gaming snack.

All in all, if you’re a gamer whose still aspiring to have the perfect gaming setup and this post really connects with you then feel free to leave me a message and I’ll get back to you immediately. Thank you and happy gaming
