If you’re staying home right now to help stop the spread of coronavirus, then you’re doing something great for the sake of others. But after several weeks at home, things are probably getting a little repetitive day after day. What is great about lockdown is that it’s giving you the chance to do more of what you love, and this is especially true for gamers who are in their element right now.

To get the most out of gaming, you need to make sure you’ve got the perfect gaming setup. From everyday gaming to those long, challenging sessions, it helps to have a game station that you love to keep you going.

Here are some tips for creating the perfect lockdown gaming setup.

Give the room a makeover

With a lot of time on your hands right now, it’s a good excuse for some DIY. Giving your game room a makeover can help you create the perfect space for gaming. A lick of paint can work wonders to transform your room, while some new prints or furniture will give it something extra. Need a bit of inspiration? Check out some cool game room ideas and spend time transforming your own.

Invest in some new tech

Some new tech could enhance your gaming experience and even make you a better player. As you’re spending less on going out and other activities, you can use some of the money saved to put towards a new headset or controller. Check out some of the best new gaming tech to give you some ideas for your shopping list.

A comfy chair is a worthwhile investment

Hours spent gaming can be a lot of fun, but it’s less fun if your back is in bits by the time you go to bed. You’ll never regret buying a comfortable chair, so take a look at some stylish chairs that are designed to support you and keep you comfortable. A gaming chair can be an expensive investment, but it’s worth it to prevent unnecessary injuries from gaming for hours at a time.

Spend time getting your settings right

Sometimes you want to get playing right away, which can mean your experience isn’t always tailored to your likes and needs. Why not take the time to adjust your game settings so that they are perfect for you? From display colors to your speaker setup, you could really enhance the way you game. Why not use a mouse sensitivity calculator to help give you the ideal setup for your PC? It’s easy to neglect the little things, but they can make a surprising difference to your playing, and your enjoyment too.


Lockdown is the perfect opportunity to enjoy some quality gaming time. With some great new games on the horizon like the new Assassin’s Creed, perhaps staying at home won’t be so bad after all?
