Playing video games is more than a hobby. In fact, I'd say for most gamers it's a lifestyle. Whether you play on a specific console, a computer or your phone, it's totally possible to spend an afternoon immersed in a virtual world. This can take up so much time and leave you sitting in the same place for a while. That means having the right balance of comfort and endurance items will help you clear every level. Here are 30 of the best gifts for any gamer to do just that.

1. Super Mario 3D All-Stars

This game brings together three Super Mario classics in one. Play Super Mario 64, Sunshine and Galaxy, all games that were released in the early 2000s and rediscover what makes them so great.

2. Xbox One S

This is one of the latest consoles from Microsoft. It's the smaller of two consoles being released in November 2020 so it's easier to handle and takes up less space. Plus, smaller means it costs less money.

3. HDMI Splitter

If you own more than one console you know the struggle of having to switch cords to play different games. A splitter saves you the hassle of having to do that. Press a button and you're done.

4. Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales

This game is an upcoming exclusive for the Playstation 5 and follows the story of Miles Morales, a kid from Brooklyn, NY who becomes Spider-Man. Now, he's got to balance fighting crime while in high school and supporting his mom who's running for mayor.

5. Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Even though this game came out in March 2020, it's gaining new fans everyday. Take complete control customizing your own island and making friends with your residents. The whole game is super adorable and there's no way you can't love it.

6. Among Us

This latest internet crazy is one of the best ways to spend time with your friends in quarantine. In this online multiplayer game, you and your fellow crew mates fight on an alien spaceship to complete different tasks while trying to avoid being killed by an imposter.

7. Apple Arcade

This subscription service gives you access to over 100 games, online or off and you can add up to six people to a plan.

8. Fuzzy Blankets

Playing games for a long time means you have to max out on comfort. A soft, fuzzy blanket can keep you warm and secure for hours of gameplay.

9. Playstation Plus Membership

Having a Playstation is that much better when you have a plus membership. It gives you access to different deals including free games and sales. If you like to play with others it means you can online with them, too. You can buy one, three or 13 months at a time.

10. Xbox Live Gold

For those of you with an Xbox, a Gold membership is your equivalent
to Playstation Plus. With this membership, you can buy three, six or 12 months at a time.

11. Controller dock with game storage

This helps keep controllers and games for your switch organized. Keep games in one section while you store and charge pro controllers on the top.

12. Gaming mouse

PC gamers need a mouse that can keep up with them. This one features a weight that you can customize to fit your needs. LED lights and buttons on the top and sides also make this perfect for extended use.

13. Headphones

These headphones sit comfortably on your head for hours of gameplay. Not only are they cute, they work with PCs, Playstations Xboxs and more.

14. Persona 5 Royal

Even though this game came out in early 2020, it's gotten record sales in the U.S. alone for its dynamic gameplay and intricate plot. In this game, you play Joker, who explores peoples deepest desires with his fellow Phantom Thieves to get rid of evil adults.

15. Face Mask

Eventually, you'll have to venture outside in pursuit of more snacks. Make sure your mask lets everyone know how important your presence is. Pausing games is a big deal.

16. Gaming in Process Socks

Keep your feet warm and comfortable with socks that show off your personality.

17. Buffering T-shirt

Sometimes, your thoughts don't always make it to your mouth and that's totally ok. We've all needed some time to load our thoughts before, but hopefully your game loads first.

18. Snack Bowl

Games = snacks. It's facts. So make sure you're stocked up on all your faves and have them within arms reach with this snack bowl.

19. Playstation Light

Show your solidarity to Sony with this Playstation wall light. Each of the shapes lights up to its corresponding color on your consoles controller.

20. Xbox Light

But if you're on Team Xbox, you too get a light of the consoles iconic logo.

21. Portable Switch Dock

A Nintendo Switch is meant to let you game on the go, but the dock it comes with is super bulky. Save space in your bag with this mini version and set up your console on any TV.

22. Xbox Media Remote

If you stream a lot on your Xbox, you're going to need this remote in your arsenal. It's so much easier to flip through your favorite Netflix shows with this instead of a gaming controller.

23. Blue Light Blocking Glasses

Since so many of us are still in quarantine, we're spending a bunch of time in front of screens. These glasses help protect your eyes from harmful rays that phones and computer screens emit.

24. Controller Skin with Grips

Customizing your controllers and consoles with skins makes everything that much more personal. That way you can make sure everything fits your aesthetic perfectly.

25. Gaming Chair

A gaming chair may be considered as something computer gamers would use, but anyone can enjoy this comfort. This one is adjustable, reclines and comes with a head rest and lumbar support.

26. The Gaming Life Rug

Eat. Sleep. Game. Repeat. That's pretty much a life motto so why not share your philosophy with anyone who comes to play games with you.

27. LED Back Lights

This isn't exactly for gaming, but it will make your space look super cool. You can pick from a bunch of different colors with a remote and change them whenever you'd like.

28. Controller Evolution Poster

Video games have come a long way over the years. This poster shows you where we are and maybe give inspiration for what's next to come.

29. Minecraft Sword

Maybe you're cosplaying, maybe you're looking for new decor. Either way, this sword will fit well among all your other Minecraft related merch.

30. Enderman Mug

Start your day with coffee from your Enderman mug. Just don't attack it and you're fine.
