What you’re viewing your video games on is the most critical component of the game itself. If you have a low-quality screen, it can ruin the gameplay experience. Depending on where you have your home theater system set up and what technology you prefer, you have options for what type of display will best fit your entertainment needs.
For a dedicated home theater, you could go with a roll-down 4K projector and screen that brings a traditional cinematic experience to your video game content. On the other hand, in a multi-purpose media room, install a large, 4K flat-screen TV from trusted brands such as Sony that can lower from the ceiling or rise up from a piece of furniture at the push of a button. While not in use, the screen will stay hidden until you’re ready to start up the gaming console.
No matter which display you decide upon, 4K is undoubtedly the way to go – you simply won’t be taking in your video game’s visuals the way you could be without it. With a life-like, vivid image display, it will feel like you’re stepping into that fantasy world on screen, racing down the highway, or charging ahead on the fictional battlefield.
What’s the other major component that can define a video game? Your audio, of course. What could spook you more in a haunted house game with stray sounds, or get you ready for a fight with incredible pump-up music?
Your home theater needs a surround sound system to truly immerse you and friends in a video game’s atmosphere. Choose standing loudspeakers to go along with the traditional feel, or place cabinet and bookshelf speakers on shelving and furniture both at the front and back of the room.
In-wall and in-ceiling speakers are the next elements that complete your surround sound setup. With speakers above and all around you, you feel completely transported into the game. Impress guests with the crystal-clear quality of sound, along with how well your speakers blend in with your interior design.
Whether you have your entertainment system in your multi-purpose media room or dedicated home theater, creating a comfortable, relaxing space is key. You’ll want cozy seating and a fully automated space to accommodate all of your needs.
With smart lighting and climate control, motorized shades, and smart home control over the whole space, you can make the room ready for a gaming night in seconds. Set a “gaming” scene that lowers the shades, dims the lights, sets the smart thermostat at the perfect temperature, and turns on your entire AV system.
You’ll be ready to beat your friends at every round, or sit back, relax, and watch them enjoy competing with each other.
