8 awesome gifts for PC gamers


Your PC gamer probably already has a massive collection of Steam games, so Valve’s Steam Link ($50 MSRP, same price on Amazon) is a great gift option. The Steam Link connects to your PC via Wi-Fi or a wired network, and streams games from your PC to the TV screen. Is it as good as putting a PC in front of your TV? No, but a small-form-factor gaming machine can’t be had for $50, and it gets you out of the den and into the living room. ( Our review of the Steam Link gives more details of the limitations of the device, but for the PC gamer, this gift is an easy one.)

Because you’re buying the Steam Link as a gift, you may also want to buy the Steam Controller ($50 MSRP, same price on Amazon). This controller gets you “closer” to a mouse-and-keyboard experience thanks to its dual-haptic pads. It’s an acquired taste, but for a PC gamer who isn’t acclimated to Xbox or PS4 controllers, it might be the easier path to take.
