9. GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition and Chest Mount

What better way to improve your game then by filming it? Well that and getting the best shots of all your goals. You'll need an action cam for that and you can't get any better then with the HERO3+ Black Edition. It's 20% smaller and lighter than its best-selling predecessor and now boasts 30 per cent longer battery life, speedier Wi-Fi, a sharper lens (always important) and a new video mode called SuperView.

You'd need something to keep it in place though and the perfect way is by strapping the HERO3+ with a chest harness. Is this taking narcissism to the next level? You bet, and in optional 4K resolution too.

Price: RM1499 (camera only), RM189 (chest mount)

10. FIFA 14

Ok I kind of cheated on this one. It's not something you're going to be bringing onto the futsal court. Come on, sometimes even I need some downtime from the game and what better way than to play virtual football. FIFA 14 is the footie sim for the ultimate footie fan gets better with more advanced AI, more realistic movement and real ball physics. Play offline, online or co-op. Build your Ultimate dream team with 40 legendary players. Or scout for talent in the Global Transfer Network.

Or maybe you've been benched. No problem. There's also the mobile version as well minus the next-gen graphics though. Still, it's pretty addictive.  Just be careful you don't get too hooked that you actually stop playing the real game of footie itself. 

Still don't believe how good it is? Check out the PS4 version review here. Want to grab the mobile version? Download the iOS version here or the Android version here.

Price: RM179 (PS4 version), Free (Android and iOS version)
