    Just 24 Cool Accessories You'll Want To Check Out If You're About That Gamer Life

    These will definitely help you get that MVP status.

    1. An SNES-style Bluetooth controller that you can connect to your Nintendo Switch, phone, PC, and even your Mac. Every part of the controller is fully functioning (from joysticks and rumble vibration to a proper D-pad!), so you won't have to choose between looks and performance.

    2. A tenkeyless mechanical keyboard that'll add a satisfying tactile touch to your gaming experience. It's a great introductory choice if you're unsure about making the switch, and no number pad means your mouse won’t be playing bumper cars with your keyboard

    3. An adjustable posture corrector that'll gently (but consistently) remind you to keep your head up and shoulders back. Reviewers say it's ideal for anyone who's tired of suffering from back and shoulder pain.

    4. A pack of Super Mario Bros. magnets that'll give you something to play with while you decide on a mid-grind snack. It comes with 80 pieces that'll let you recreate some of your favourite scenes from the games.

    5. A set of LED strip lights that’ll help you jazz up your PC tower or add some flair to your gaming lair. Reviewers say they’re super bright, incredibly easy to put up, and have tons of colour options to boot.

    6. An ergonomic foot rest that'll make sitting at your desk way comfier. Reviewers like that they can flip it onto its round side for some rocking action, which helps to alleviate stiffness in their joints and get their circulation pumping.

    7. An office chair that’ll keep you sitting up straight, so that you won't have to suffer IRL like you might be in your game. Reviewers say that the fabric feels cushy and luxurious, and love that it's able to fully recline for ultimate relaxation.

    8. A pair of Razer noise-cancelling headphones that'll help you stay focused by keeping distracting sounds out (like your chatty dog who just doesn't seem to run out energy, ever). The earpads are soft and infused with cooling gel, so you won't get an annoying pressure headache or hot, sore ears even with all-day wear.

    9. A Razer mobile game controller that'll connect to your smartphone, so you won't have to sacrifice another victory because you tapped on the wrong pixel. It'll slide closed to become more compact, so you can keep it in your bag until it's time to bring your A-game.

    10. A light-up deskpad that'll give your setup a ~snazzy~ makeover. Reviewers love that it’s got plenty of colours options to choose from (14, to be exact!), plus a big enough surface area to fit both their mouse *and* a keyboard.

    11. A dedicated Blue Yeti microphone that'll amplify your voice, so your teammates won't have to guess at what you're saying. Reviewers say it's also great for vlogging and like the plug-and-play feature for easy setup.

    12. An external hard drive so you can download and play that 80GB monstrosity of a game. It's pretty tiny, so it won't take up much room on your desk or in your laptop bag.

    13. A giant time-marked water bottle that’ll remind you to stay hydrated when you're obliterating in-game enemies all day. You'll be able to easily track your daily water intake with the motivational marker, while focusing your valuable mental energy on strategizing.

    14. A mouse bungee that'll help you avoid tangled wires when you're trying to focus on aim and accuracy. It also has anti-slip feet to prevent it from sliding around.

    15. A wearable deep tissue massager that'll alleviate some of the stress you carry in your back and shoulders (from carrying your teammates in Call of Duty all night). Reviewers say it's been helpful for their upper body pain and love the heated feature for working out tougher kinks.

    16. A desk fan that'll cool you and your equipment down without adding extra bulk to your space. It's USB-rechargeable and its speed can be adjusted with a little slider on the front.

    17. A wireless Playstation controller charging station that'll keep 'em juiced up while giving them a dedicated place to rest. Reviewers like the indicator lights that show when they're charged all the way, so they don't have to do any guessing.
