One of the most important things you will need to create a PC game theater is a screen holder or a shelf to place the computer screen. The screen holder pictured here is ideal for tablets, which is what many people use to play PC games these days. This is because tablets are smaller and lighter to carry around, and take up less space.
The screen holder is attached to the ultra modern armchair, which looks super comfortable. Just the armchair and the screen holder is actually sufficient to create a PC game theater for one person in a cozy corner of a room. Of course, you can add speakers too for extra effect.
A comfortable inclined chair that you can really relax in while you play PC games is a must. Gamers usually spend long hours in front of the screen totally immersed in getting to the next level. This is why if you don't get a good chair, you might end up with a backache, and it's not going to be a very relaxing and enjoyable experience in the end. Make sure you get a cushion to support the arch of your back properly. If you can afford it, go for the real luxury by investing in a massage chair!
Although playing PC games doesn't really require any company, having friends over and playing together is still loads more fun. Playing PC games can be a way to socialize with friends as well, so make space for friends in your small game theater room or corner.
You can either invest in sturdy theater chairs equipped with screen holders like the ones pictured here or go for a more low budget alternative. Beans bags, floor cushions and other types of seating that is closer to the floor can give the space or room a more casual feel.
Since the computer screen or TV screen will be the main focus of your game theater, it makes sense to light it up and further enhance it. For best results, place lights on both sides of the screen as you see pictured here. The lights shouldn't be too bright though, or it will give you a headache. You can even use fairy lights or colourful lights if you fancy.

Make sure the computer screen and the seats are not facing any windows as one of the most annoying things is having the sun glaring on your computer screen or on your face, preventing you from seeing anything clearly. If there are windows all over, and you can't really not face them, then get some good quality blinds or heavy drapes that will do the job of keeping the sun out. While you're at it, don't forget to add some splashes of colour to the room to make it fun and cheery.
There should be just enough light in the room, but not too much, so cut down all external light sources. Lighting is very important when it comes to creating the perfect PC game theater. It not only sets the mood, but can also affect concentration and eye strain. The position of the lighting should also be taken into consideration.
