If you play games on a PC then you need a gaming mouse. While it’s true that there a number of titles where a controller is the better option, you’ll always find that first-person shooters, strategy games (real-time or otherwise) and MOBAs will either benefit from or require a mouse.
There is, however, a huge range of gaming mice to choose from, and picking one isn’t always easy - especially as deciding which is the ‘best’ mouse often comes down to personal preference. More often than not, the most popular gaming mice are produced by three companies: Razer, SteelSeries and Logitech.
This article looks at each gaming mouse manufacturer, analyzes two of their most popular products, and decides which company ultimately deserves the title of ‘King of the gaming mice.’ This covers several different types of mouse, including ambidextrous, wireless and genre-specific. There’s also an honourable mention for some of the other manufacturers who are challenging the top three's dominance in the market.
