Video Games: The Basics

This category doesn’t include just the games themselves; the resident deal experts here at DealNews are always on the hunt for a good deal on consoles and accessories, as well.  We’ve compiled a list of advice and resources to help you dive into the world of gaming:

Consoles vs. PC Gaming

First, you have to decide just where you want to spend your gaming hours. One of the biggest debates among gamers often comes back to whether consoles or gaming computers are the superior choice.

Your answer depends on many different factors, including price, comfort, available titles, and more.  For instance, gaming PCs often will pack a better graphical punch and offer smoother game performance —  but at the cost of a heftier price tag. One also should consider whether a keyboard and mouse setup or a controller offers you a more comfortable and enjoyable experience. It’s also worth considering the types of games you’re interested in, as well as any specific franchises, since many titles are console-exclusive . If Mario Kart is your jam, then you probably shouldn’t be looking at a PlayStation or Xbox console.

Ultimately, your gaming platform choice comes down to personal taste, and what you can reasonably manage financially (no matter what passionate fans on the internet might insist).

Gaming Desktops vs. Laptops

How much space do you have to dedicate to gaming? If you have a permanent desk or home office set up, then a desktop might be the way to go. But if portability and/or travel is a concern, then you may lean towards a laptop . Keep in mind that desktop PCs will often come with better specs, such as more RAM, better audio, and more heavy-duty graphics cards.

Next Generation Game Consoles

The currently available major gaming consoles consist of the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Slim, and PlayStation 4 Pro; Xbox One and Xbox One S; and the Nintendo Switch.  However, the next iteration of Sony and Microsoft’s consoles have been announced with projected release dates in late 2020. Here’s what we know so far:

PlayStation 5

CPU: 8-core AMD Ryzen Zen 2 up to 3.5GHz

GPU: AMD Radeon RDNA 2 up to 2.23GHz

RAM: 16GB GDDR6

SSD: 825GB

4K UHD Blu-ray Drive

HDMI 2.1 input

Backwards Compatibility: Most PS4 and PS4 Pro titles

Xbox One X (formerly Project Scarlett)

CPU: Custom 8-core AMD Ryzen Zen 2 up to 3.8GHz

GPU: AMD Radeon RDNA 2 up to 1.825GHz

RAM: 16GB GDDR6SSD: 1TB NVMe

4K UHD Blu-ray DriveHDMI 2.1 input

Backwards Compatibility: Xbox One, Xbox One S, and previously backwards compatible Xbox 360 and original Xbox titles

Video Game Accessories

The gaming accessories you’ll be interested in will depend on your platform of choice. We’ve compiled tons of gaming essentials in our video game accessories category , but here’s a more general list to get you started:

A good keyboard is highly recommended for PC gamers. Not only can a good keyboard save your wrists some pain, but many often come with programmable buttons that help make things like QTEs (quick time events) and voice chat easier to navigate in-game.

Speaking of saving your wrists, a good mouse can be just as essential. Wired or wireless may be somewhat of a personal preference, but it can also mean the difference in a perfect shot or a slight miss, thanks to glide quality, sensor type, DPI, and tracking speed. You may also want to look for a mouse that also has programmable buttons and customizable software, if you want to get very specific about your shortcuts.

A good pair of headphones is crucial, whether you’re playing on PC or console (most controllers have a headphone jack, if you’re worried about playing at a distance from your machine). Not only do most games come with a killer soundtrack, but headphones can make or break stealth-based gameplay. Plus, if you’re interested in co-op gameplay with friends or family members, a good pair of headphones with a built-in microphone are a must have for voice chat.

Usually purchased on a monthly or yearly basis, membership cards often net players free and discounted games, plus online gameplay benefits. These can be a great way to pad your game library out, test new game demos, and bag even more cloud storage space, just to name a few perks.
