College graduates will soon be interviewing for new jobs or they’ll be taking the next steps toward furthering their educations. Wherever the future takes them, they can’t be all work and no play. That’s just too stressful, and life’s too short.

Whether it’s a break from studies or a break from the daily 9-to-5 (or later) grind, taking time to relax and have fun is important. According to the experts at, taking a break can help us cope better with stress, restore energy, and improve focus.

One way college students and young adults relax these days is by playing videogames. The Entertainment Software Association, the trade association of the video game industry in the USA, estimates that 67 percent of American adults play videogames. Nearly 40 percent are age 18 to 34. Without question, videogaming is fast becoming one of the nation’s—and the world’s—favorite pastimes.

That said, and with graduation coming fast, CORE Gaming makes it easy to find quality gaming gear for your student. Whether your gamer is a newbie or an RPG vet, gaming gear is a gift he or she will appreciate.

Here are a few of our top picks for both mobile and desktop gamers.
