We’ve all done it before. Don’t feel ashamed.
We’ve all scoured the internet for “Gifts for Gamers” articles to try and find the perfect gift for our hubbies, children, and friends.
Further, we’ve all seen the look of disappointment on gift recipients faces when they receive their generic gifts that don’t really have anything to do with the games or systems they like to play. Believe it or not, “Gaming” is a gigantic and nearly all-encompassing category. Gamers can be into sports games like Madden or NBA 2k. They can be into shooters like Cal of Duty, or even Battle Royale games like Fortnite and Creative Destruction.

If the person you’re buying a gift for someone who plays on Console (Xbox, PS4, Nintendo Switch), then chances are they know what a SCUF controller is. SCUF has made a name for itself by making the most used controller used by professional gamers.

This might sound frivolous to someone who doesn’t play, but it’s a game changer for the avid player.
