Choose a game the mouse is a very personal endeavor. Everyone’s hands are different, everyone’s preferences and needs are different, and we all play different games. That’s why we’re fortunate to be living in the golden age of gaming mice, with major manufacturers putting muscle on each other. The result is a market filled with high-quality but relatively inexpensive gaming mice.
I tested quite a few before and during my quarantine. Getting stuck indoors means a lot of time at a computer, working and playing. While I can’t tell you exactly which mouse is right for you, I can give you some recommendations. So here they are: our recommendations for the best gaming mouse for every type of gamer.
Update for January 2021: updated prices on a few items, added Logitech G203.
