I don't think it really matters? it's kind of just a monitor that projects image onto a screen or wall.

The higher the lumens the brighter the picture is.
Just make sure it has a fast response time.

No projectors other than the ridiculously expensive range are good for gaming. LCD, yes. Plasma, maybe. Projector, nope.

As was already said, the higher the lumens, the brighter it is... keep that in mind when you consider where the projector will be located (if it's gonna be in a dark room with no windows, don't worry about super high lumens; whereas if it's going to be in a room full of windows with shades that don't quite cut it... high lumens is the way to go).
