List Rules Items you need to improve your gaming experience besides video games.

No matter what, gamers gonna game! But for a gamer to play at peak performance levels, there are certain survival essentials for quests, campaigns, and candy crushes. Every gamer has their own ritual of snacks, and there is no right way to keep you going. If you don’t see the item that will help you beat the boss level, make sure to add it below!

For every person who digs messy snacking like DiGiorno Pizza, Doritos, and Taco Bell, there are those who don’t want to gunk up their controllers (amateurs). But what about sweet treats like Twizzlers, Pop-Tarts, and M&Ms? If normal fuel fails to get you over the late night hump, there’s always Red Bull, Monster, and Startbucks coffee to be the cheat code to alertness. What about the accessories that make gaming experience better from the best gamer lifestyle brands? The best rocker video chairs, headsets, and video glasses like Gunnar Optik are there, if you want to shell out the coins (or rupees).

What do you think should go in a gaming survival kit? What are your gamer must-haves? Vote-up the ones you see here, and make sure to add all the essentials we’ve left out!
