While one of the greatest past times on earth, there is always room for improvement in the gaming world. It can be tough making it through a weekend marathon of Left For Dead, but with these gamer hacks, you’ll come out Monday morning a winner.
- Make sure you have a comfortable computer chair. If you don’t, and keep playing from the floor, or the bed or that lawn chair you stole from the neighbors, you are going to start feeling it in your back. General rules of thumb for the right chair – your hands should not have to tilt to type, and your head should not tilt to see the screen.
- Use a banana holder to store your headset on. These are expensive, and get ruined easily if you don’t take care of them. Instead of just leaving it lying it anywhere, a banana holder can keep it safe and ready for whenever you are.
- Buy a konjac sponge to make your hygiene habits quick and easy. We all hate to have to break and wash, but it’s a necessity if you don’t want to end up with a face that looks as greasy as the pizza you ordered last night. A konjac sponge cleans your face as good as any exfoliate would, but in just minutes rather than in hours. Check them out on some online review sites to see just how good they are.
- Set up a stationary bike in front of your gaming screen. If you can manage to cycle through at least 30 minutes of Left for Dead, you can meet your exercise quota for the day and keep on killing zombies.
- Keep an unplugged controller handy for the younger brother or sister. Yes, we know it’s mean, but they will be content thinking they’re the ones throwing all those hand grenades, while you preserve your precious life forces.
- Don’t forget to set your Xbox One or PS4 to auto update. If not, every time you turn the system on, you are going to have to deal with waiting for the updates to be sent to the console. This is incredibly annoying and a huge waste of your time.
With these six quick fixes, your gaming days will be infinitely more enjoyable. Just remember that once you are in that Left for Dead zone, you still do have to come up for air once in awhile to avoid burning out.
