Grab IPS as TN will give you viewing angle but TN is better for gaming. If you do a mix of both grab the IPS and don't look back.
What? TN doesn't give you viewing angles, IPS does and VA is in-between. Both are good for gaming depending on the type of gaming you're doing and what you want from a monitor. IPS typically has better colors and contrast, but can suffer from backlight bleed and has a higher response time (usually 4-5ms vs the 1ms TN panels commonly are). TN has lower response time, used to be better for high refresh rates but 144Hz IPS monitors are everywhere now. It is usually much cheaper and AFAIK doesn't suffer from backlight bleed, but it also has worse viewing angles and usually worse colors and contrast. VA panels are kinda in-between.

But if there was a same spec (5ms 60hz) TN and IPS panel which would be better? Or it would be the same? Is gaming better on TN because it has something to do with the panel itself or its just that IPS monitors tend to have lower refresh rates and ms?
If it's the same spec, the IPS will have better colors and viewing angles while performing the same.

Response time is meaningless unless it's upward of 20-30ms. There is no good reason to buy a junky TN display in 2019 when IPS/PLS displays are better in every way possible
Backlight bleed/inconsistency. Depending on the model it can be noticeable and bothers a lot of people, AFAIK TN panels don't suffer from this.
