Choose the right room
In an age of VR headsets and motion controllers, it is important to pick a game space with room to move. Even traditional games call for stretching and screen breaks, so start big from the start.
Don’t skimp on screens
Why opt for a single screen when you have already set up a supersized games room? Make the most of a generous space with two to three linked-up monitors for extra widescreen gaming.
Get a gear rack
Build or buy a rack for your controllers, chargers, headphones and other kit. You are a gaming ninja, and this is your armoury. Treat it with respect and keep it within easy reach at all times.
Set the mood
A good games den isn’t just a room, it is a shrine to all that makes gaming great. Decorate your space with memorabilia, from retro carts to convention passes and collectable figures. Even add a display cabinet.
Stock up on snacks
Add a mini fridge to your gaming area to grab cold drinks and snacks without having to press pause. Kitchen trips aren’t ideal, unless you move your games den to the kitchen of course. Haha!
Get your games in order
There is nothing worse than not being able to find a game when you need it most. Keep them all in one place, in their boxes, and in alphabetical order. It makes sense and will look cool.
