IPS is typically very susceptible to backlight bleed, whilst VA is not. The effect is emphasised on IPS because many of them exhibit corner-glow that can seem like blacklight bleed, and on top of that, their black levels are quite high, so you really notice the lack of darkness when playing in a dark/dim room in the evenings.
Are you after any particular features? (High refresh, freesync, HDR?)
Unless you're after 144Hz gaming-specific, my advice would be to look for a 75Hz 32" 1440p model with Freesync. If you have an AMD card or 1xxx/20xx series Nvidia card you can use VRR with it, and the 75Hz panels are more likely to be AUO panels if it's not specifically stated. Samsung panels aren't bad, but they're a generation behind AUO when it comes to dark-transition response times and smearing. Also, since both AUO and Samsung make 144Hz panels now, the 75Hz are likely to be older AUO models so you should be able to find them with deep discounts. One I know to be decent from past experience is the HP Omen 32, but I wouldn't expect that to be available - I'm only mentioning it in case you find the last one on clearance somewhere for an absolute steal.
Also, stay away from curved panels. I like the curve, but it's much harder to get uniform, bleed-free backlighting from a curved panel unless it's OLED.
