The best gaming chairs are designed for one purpose and one purpose only, to keep a gamer as comfortable as possible. They aren’t necessarily designed for desk use or office work, they are designed with gamers in mind. Yes, some could perform dual use such as an office chair, but not all.
Typically the best gaming chairs are designed like the cockpit of a racing car. They are built for comfort as well as endurance designed for long periods of use. An office chair is designed for shorter periods of continuous sitting, so the gaming chair has more comfort features to allow for longer term sitting.
Just like a good quality office chair, a top rated gaming chair has swivel castors and height adjustments. But, in addition to that, they are designed for comfort and support. A top rated gaming chair has better lumbar support, many have detachable cushions , a headrest and comfortable armrests. Some can even tilt back a full 180 degrees without tipping over. If your gaming chair can tilt back the full 180 degrees, you will feel like you are in a spaceship.
If the average user spends over 6 hours in a gaming chair you had better find the most comfortable and durable one you can.
Another big difference between a top rated office chair and a top rated gaming chair is the looks. Yes, you can purchase a gaming chair that is a little less ‘bright’ but why would you want to. Gaming chairs come in modern designs and colors which we think just add to the overall gaming experience.
A top rated gaming chair just makes you happy to see it. They get you excited about sitting down to a long gaming period in comfort.
If you are willing to pay a little extra you can find gaming chairs with leg support, just like a recliner. You can lean back and take a nap if you are finished with your gaming.
Top rated gaming chairs are designed for people of all sizes. A standard gaming chair will support up to 250 pounds, however you can find some that have a higher weight limit. We have been able to find some with weight limits of between 330 and 350 pounds.
They come in different materials from plastic, to fabric to leather. The leather gaming chairs are really nice but might be best if you are in a warmer area. You might actually find that you would like a fabric design better. The fabric designs are more difficult to keep clean but you are less likely to stick to them and they are cheaper.
If you want a leather type material, you can find leather substitutes for lower prices that hold up fairly well and give you the overall look and feel of leather. Of course, even with a top rated gaming chair if it is simulated leather it won’t hold up quite as well. You will need to take care of the leather that is if you choose to go that route.
If you have wood floors, you need to look for a gaming chair that has coated casters to protect your floor. This will also help keep the noise down and provide a non-slip wheel surface to keep you from moving around as you play your game.
The best rated gaming chairs will allow you to customize your seating experience. They have a specialized reclining system which we touched on above. Most of the best gaming chairs will allow you to adjust your incline anywhere between 90 degrees to as much as 180 degrees. This combined with adjustable seat height will give you the utmost in flexibility and comfort.
There are even gaming chairs that are blue tooth enabled with speakers to further immerse you in your gaming experience. You can get the features you need to have the most enjoyable gaming experience possible. Just keep looking and find the feature you want and need.
Just to summarize what you should look for.
Make sure it has an adjustable recline. It should have a tilt lock function and have adjustable height. It will need a sturdy base and smooth rolling casters. If you are using it on a wood floor, make sure the casters are coated. A curved high back with a removable headrest will really increase your overall comfort. Make sure that it has a thick padded seat and adjustable lumbar support.
After that, you are just looking for add in features that are important to you. Look around, the chair you want is out there.
