There's no real reason to be using an omnidirectional mic for gaming, in fairness.

Unfortunately it is hard to avoid them: a vast majority of headset mics and desk based microphones are either cardioid or omni - despite the proximity effect, they can pick up sounds from everywhere. A shotgun Mic might be better, as they have a very directional pattern.

I recently got a Neat Bumblebee USB mic:



The build quality of this mic is unreal. In a word: solid. It uses a single 24mm cardioid mic capsule. The mic boom allows for the mic to be placed in such a way the sound from my mechanical keyboard is minimized. It also has a spiffy 96khz recording capability too, and the mic has very low noise for a usb mic. There is a 3.5mm jack for self-monitoring, there are controls for mic gain, a few preset frequency curves [I just use neutral] and It also comes with a snap-on pop filter. Overall, the Mic has by far the best packaging I have ever seen for such a product.

My only complaint is that is kind of ruins the red/white/black colour scheme I have with my desktop PC gear.

what do you mean in terms of bad? if you are afraid of sound leaking into the mic, then you don't need to worry. It doesnt pick it up unless you are listening at extremely loud volumes.
Plus, you can change the sensitivity of your mic using your interface or even VoiceMeter.

currently using the rode procaster, but the audio technica AT2005usb or the 2100 is pretty decent for a budget option, prefer using dynamic mics over condensers

Using an at-2020 USB mic with a generic stand, definetly gets the job done but i would love to upgrade to an XLR mic like the AT-2035 for content creation.

I always got compliments when using my logitech desktop mic.

Imo you really cannot go wrong with a stand alone mic

I use a Blue Snowball, with filter and desk mounting adjustable arm. Works perfect , is not attached to my expensive headphones and provides SQ much better than your standard boom mic. Everyone says my voice sounds rich. I use open headphones too and no one ever hears any bleed off.
