Gaming is not what it used to in previous time. With the rise in the gaming market many tools and applications have also evolved.
These tools are for helping gamers in task like chatting to other gamers, server info, buy games online and other tasks.
1. X-fire: This is one of my favorite applications for PC. A beautifully made software for gamers. Has functions like tracking game played hours, Automatic patch downloads, Info about servers, Ingame chat, Screenshot, video, live broadcasting and other. I could have made a separate topic about it. This one is the most recommended program for gamers. And best of all its free! 😉
2. FRAPS: Fraps is the ultimate tool found on everygamers desktop. It specialises in HQ video recording ingame and can also be used for taking screenshots. It is also used for benchmarking and checking FPS (frames per Second).Though the size of the videos is huge, so they need to be rendered in an approprite form before uploading or just saving. Although it is not free but still this program has seen a huge success in the gaming world.
3. Steam: Steam is an ultimate online gaming platform. Supports Instant access to your games, Chat with friends,but games online, automatic game uploades and more. millions of people around the globe are using steam. And moreover its free too. 🙂
4. Gamebooster: Gamebooster is a free utility by iObit, a software developing company. It aims at improving PC performance for game by closing all unwanted processes and priograms and defragging memory. It also has an inbuilt game defragger. It can not only be used by gamers, but for everyone who wants to do some multitasking work and wants more resources.
5. Games For Windows Live: Games For Windows Live is an online marketplace for buying Games For Windows Live Supported games. It is released by microsoft and is slowly gaining popularity. It enables you to buy games online, track the gamescore and achievements, and enables multiplayer in some selected games too. I absolutely love this app because of the ingame features. And its free too 🙂 .
