You’ve seen the latest visually stunning trailers for Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Now you’re interested in becoming a gamer. But you don’t want to just dip your toe in this rather unique pool. Instead, you want to become a pro and believe it or not, there are quite a few advantages to this. First, it’s a lot of fun, and you’ll find blowing the heads off baddies ridiculously stress relieving. Second, and perhaps more importantly, you can make money. We kid you not, there are kids online making a fortune just by recording their playthrough on certain games. But, before we get to that we need to think about your setup.
Connections And Speed
If you want to be a pro gamer, you’ll need a high-speed internet connection. Ideally, you want super fast broadband, and you should really look for the fastest on the market. Lag times can be a real killer online, quite literally. In a fighting game, lag will get you killed because you’ll be a few seconds behind other gamers. This gives them a distinct advantage.
You may also want to think about server hosting. This is important for MMRPGs like Minecraft of Runescape. On games like this, you’ll be playing with a massive group of people at the same time. If you want the best experience playing a game like this, you need a server. With a server, you’ll be able to host all information and data, allowing you to have a smoother gaming experience. There is a wide range of dedicated servers for you to choose from for this type of setup.
PC: The Master Race
If you’re serious about being a gamer, you don’t want to bother with Nintendo or Sony. Instead, you need to get yourself an ultra awesome gaming PC. Be aware that PCs needed to be updated with different graphics cards and processors on a regular basis to get the most from new games. You might have already started to look at consoles. While consoles are cheaper, they just don’t offer the same gaming experience. If you want proof of this, take a look at the difference in graphics between a console game and one on the PC. PCs will always be light years ahead of consoles because they are constantly updating. Consoles are only updated every five or six years.
Put In The Hours
Once you have the setup, you need to know something. You won’t become a pro gamer overnight. It takes hours of practice and can be stressful. Particularly, when every time you go online a veteran player wipes you out of the running. But with a little patience and a lot of time, you’ll be able to develop your skill and see higher levels of victory.
Hey, What About VR?
Nope, don’t bother, it’s still in primitive stages of development. Visually, it’s impressive for a few minutes, but after that, you’ll get tired of the gimmick. The screens aren’t even close to the resolution of your HD tv. This technology has been rushed to the market before it was ready and right now it’s worthless tech.
We hope you have fun using this advice to experience gaming like an absolute pro.
