Updated: Jul 13

If you want to start a hobby that's relaxing, cozy, and affordable, cozy gaming a great option! I think PC influencers on Instagram and Tiktok make it seem unreasonably expensive to start gaming. Can you spend $5000 on a computer and $1800 on a monitor? Absolutely. You can also spend $400 and get a handheld Steam Deck that will play all the cozy games you can find. Below are 5 ways to start cozy gaming on a budget!



Buy a used PC off Facebook marketplace. The main pro to buying a full PC setup is performance. A lot of streamers with expensive PC setups are playing online games like Valorant, Apex Legends, World of Warcraft, and other online games that require performance computers. If you want to start playing these games, consider getting a used computer off of Facebook marketplace! This will save you a lot of money.


Buy a PC bundle. If you want to buy a new computer, consider getting a bundle that includes everything you need! This PC bundle includes the computer, monitor, speakers, keyboard, and mouse, and can be financed through Amazon if needed!

Buy a gaming laptop. There are a lot of pros to a gaming laptop - they're portable, they will run online games at a performance level, and they're basically the PC tower, monitor, and speakers all packed into one! You can access all the same games as a regular computer - Steam, Epic Games, Blizzard - in a smaller package.

Buy a Nintendo Switch. Buying a switch is one of the easiest ways to start cozy gaming on a budget and is definitely the most popular among cozy gamers! There are so many cozy games available on the Nintendo Store! If you don't know where to start, check out these 15 Best Cozy Games Coming Out in 2024.

Buy a handheld computer console. If you just want to start PC gaming to play cozy games, this where I would start. It basically works like a Nintendo Switch, but you have access to the Steam store and library, where new cozy indie games come out much more often and for cheaper than on the Switch. The pros to a handheld computer include that it's the most affordable option and most portable!
