L-Shaped or Standard Gaming Desk – Which One Should You Choose?

Gaming is an experience and it should be the best. So much time is put into the perfect game and controllers etc. But what about your gaming area? Your gaming desk means a lot to your experience. Location, lighting, and space matters so much to the experience. So how does a gamer choose? Well, there is lots to consider. Think about how much space you have to work, what kind of space you are in and just how much stuff do you have. Comfort and health are very important also.

How much space are you working with? If you are confined to a tiny bedroom that is cluttered to the max, well you may not have much choice except a standard desk. Standard desks, like the others do come in different sizes and heights. May not be perfect, but it can work if you are willing to alternate equipment. Now if the size of the room is not a problem, by all means the L–shaped desk could be a serious consideration. Find the perfect corner in the room and set up all of your gaming gear. The L-shaped desk is so great because it allows you to spread out all your equipment and gaming gear. Whether you have a lot or not comfort really comes into play with the L-shaped desk.

What kind of space are you in? Are you in a small dorm room or are you in a house with a man cave? Dorm rooms can be quite small and tight. It would be wonderful to have the space to have the gang over after tests and play a few rounds, but space may not be on your side. That means the dorm room might very well limit you to the standard desk. We do have to admit, their has to be room left for homework space. But, if you have a really cool roommate or a room to yourself, there might be major room for negotiations in the space. If that be the case, go L-shaped. This configuration just makes the perfect set-up for gaming with friends. The L-shaped desk allows the gamer to always have a couple of monitors set up and various controllers to be available upon demand. With the standard desk, it would be necessary to move things around and have to replace equipment anytime friends come by to join in. Seating is major with the L-shaped desk. 2 to 3 chairs can easily fit around the L-shaped desk. Not the case with the standard desk. One gamer will usually find themselves in an awkward position from the screen or screens.

Lastly, think about your health. Gaming can get pretty intense and may go on for hours. The position in which you are sitting can really make a difference. Proper posture can be improved by having a comfortable set-up with the gaming equipment. The distance from the monitors can help or hurt the eyes. Not realizing that you are in an abnormal position for long periods of time, can really strain your back and other muscles. If possible, the L-shaped desk will improve these issues.

There is a lot to consider when trying to choose the perfect desk. Weigh out the pros and cons for your individual space and social interaction. I hope this gives you lots to think about. You can read some more excellent info on gaming desks on GamingVerdict.com

Motorcycle vs Bicycle

Bicycles vs Motorcycles – who’s the winner?

When it comes to modern transportation methods, there are two methods that will always be at war with each other, the bicycle and the motorcycle. While the bicycle has it’s advantages that may make it seem superior to motorcycles (it’s green, it provides exercise, etc.), you’ll realize upon taking a step back and analyzing the cultures that surround them, bikes come in a distant second place. Please consider the following:

 

Cops

Most of us have seen cops on motorcycles, and those cops seem a little more badass than the rest of the force, but what about the cops on bicycles? I’m sure there are situations where cops on bikes are useful, and I’m sure they’re particularly great if you’re ever in a position when you need to outrun the cops… but I bet everyone at their precinct, ESPECIALLY the cops on horses, giggle when the bicycle cops go by.

 

Headgear

Adequate head safety is crucial for both bicycles and motorcycles…but that is about all their helmets have in common. When wearing a motorcycle helmet, you look like you just walked out of the video game Metroid. With a bicycle helmet, you look like some nerd who is dressed daily for school or work by his mom… who must also be blind.

 

Fashion

Bicycle attire may have motorcycle attire beat in the area of climate control, that’s about it. It’s standard to be sporting the skin of what was another living creature when cruisin on a motorcycle. But bicyclists on the other hand are wearing a synthetic material that is so tight that it too is like a second skin. A skin that leaves nothing to the imagination as to the physical form of the person wearing it. Now on the one hand, this can be totally awesome if it’s being worn by an athlete, but on the other hand it can make everything and everyone uncomfortable when being worn by someone not so physically blessed. And there are a lot of cyclists out there who like to stand when they peddle… Talking about accessories like backpacks – let’s make it clear. An ordinary motorcycle backpack looks way much better than a worn-down school pack so many Sunday cyclists love to wear. Ugh.

 

Fictional Character Preferences

You know who loved his bike more than anyone else in the whole world? Peewee Herman. Nobody was permitted to get between that obnoxious dork and his wheels. But you know who loved his motorcycle, even though he was never able to cry?…The friggin TERMINATOR! Sorry but I’m going to trust the taste of a heartless cyborg over the preference of some bow-tied, nasally creep any day.

 

Nonfictional Character Preferences

Sometimes bicyclists and motorcyclists do have some things in common. Lance Armstrong, before his fall from grace, was the poster boy of professional bicycle athletes. Even after his disgrace his achievements are still pretty impressive, even with the drugs. Then on the other side of the cycle spectrum is the infamous Hell’s Angels. There aren’t many authentic tough guys running around that will leave a mark on history like the Angels, and they too were frequently on drugs. The only real difference between the two is the Angels don’t hide their unsavory personalities; while with Armstrong, though the world already knew he was a jerk, still acted surprised when that fact was confirmed.

 

Personally speaking, after taking these things into consideration, and despite the fact that bicycles may help control my ever widening waistline, and makes my carbon footprint a little less deep, they just don’t even compete with a motorcycle.
