    The Samsung Odyssey Ark is one of the most impressive gaming monitors ever announced. It's huge and has incredible image quality while boasting features such as 2.2.2-channel built-in speakers, a 1000R curvature, and a highly-adjustable stand, just to name a few.

    There's virtually nothing the Samsung Odyssey Ark can't handle, given its bonkers specifications. Nevertheless, the curved design and adjustable stand can be more advantageous in some genres than others, so we thought we should give you a short list of games and game genres that fit the Odyssey Ark perfectly.

    Car sims, flight sims, and anything in-between

    The Odyssey Ark has a wide 55-inch diagonal and a 1000R curvature. This combination makes it perfect for immersive video games such as flight and driving simulators, including titles such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, iRacing, Assetto Corsa Competizione, and others. Not to mention space games with cockpit views.

    The generous size and curvature of the monitor, combined with third-party gaming accessories such as flight sticks or steering wheels, allow gamers to immerse themselves deeply in the simulated environment. A similar effect can be achieved when using a three-monitor setup or an ultra-wide curved monitor, but the Odyssey Ark offers more versatility thanks to its tilting and pivoting stand.

    Pinball and other board games

    Although most video games work best in landscape resolution, some game genres fit the portrait aspect ratio a lot better. Pinball games are in that category, but there probably are a lot of board games that look better in portrait mode too.

    Nevertheless, if you're an avid fan of games like Pinball Arcade or Pinball FX3, the Odyssey Ark, with its adjustable stand, is a fantastic choice, regardless of whether you run these Pinball games on a PC or a video game console.

    A command center for strategy game fans

    The Samsung Odyssey Ark probably looks like the perfect command center in the eyes of gamers who grew up with strategy games like Civilization, Age of Empires, Heroes of Might & Magic, Sim City, Starcraft, and C&C: Red Alert.

    Although most of these game series are past their prime, and the strategy genre is no longer as popular as it used to be, the Odyssey Ark still is one of the best monitors for fans of strategy games. The 55-inch diagonal offers a lot of real estate for the virtual battlefield and makes even the tiniest details easier to spot or read.

    Rich cinematic experiences in story-driven AAA games

    Video games have often drawn inspiration from the cinematic experiences enabled by movies. And for the past decade or so, numerous so-called “cinematic” AAA games have emerged to offer truly immersive experiences wrapped in engaging storylines featuring characters with rich personalities.

    Given its size and curvature, the Samsung Odyssey Ark is the perfect monitor for immersive cinematic gaming experiences and video games such as God of War, The Last of Us, Death Stranding, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Red Dead Redemption 2, and others.

    If you want to buy the Samsung Odyssey Ark, the monitor is now available for online reservation in select markets, and pre-order customers will get exclusive discounts.
