Need a recommendation on a good sounding mic...

Hi, Currently have a cheap fifine USB mic: https://www.amazon.com/Microphone-Condenser-Recording-Streaming-669B/dp/B06XCKGLTP/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1544042397&sr=8-1&keywords=fifine

I want something better sounding that doesn't pick up my keyboard. I will be using is for gaming mainly, and it would be set on an arm mount.

Thanks

You'll be needing a dynamic mic. I suggest the Audio Technica ATR2100 at $70 or a Shure SM58 at $100.

Those don't seem to be directional mics, won't they pick up more sound?

Dynamic = directional

Condenser = omnidirectional

These are both dynamic mics, which means they only pick up sound in a cone in front of them. They were designed to be used in a stage setting, so that the mic doesn't pick up the audience in the background or other instruments on stage.

Do you have a recommendation of one?
