Best gaming chair for me?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I am right now looking for a gaming chair, you know the kind of gaming chairs that are branded that looks amazing. But when overlooking guides it seems that every guide hates on them? I don't know why. For example this so called Best Gaming Chair Guide says
Quote:
Throughout the guide, you will notice us using the term ‘Gaming Chair’ a lot, and the term itself can be misleading. A lot of times a gaming chair is just a rebrand of an office chair with some minor color tweaks but costs twice the price than the original chair. When we mention the term gaming chair, we are mostly talking about office chairs that we think are great for gaming sessions, and NOT necessarily chairs that are branded as gaming chairs.
, this whole situation makes me confused whether I should buy a branded gaming chair or just a freaking office chair, and recommendations on chairs guys? Sorry for my english.

When you get down to it, gaming is the same as office work. You just need something comfortable to sit it for am extended period. So, there really isn't any particular reason to get a gaming chair, unless the price amd features beat the office chair.

That being said, I have a DX Racer chair. If you are willing to spend in that price range, I think they are worth it. It has a high back, so you can rest your head when you're just sitting back watching something, and it has a pull lever to adjust the back angle like a car seat.

Just get a quality office chair and avoid getting ripped off, unless gamer look is what you want from a chair.

The only reason I would get any type of gaming chair would be if I played more simulators and needed a specialized platform to mount the wheel, pedals, shifter, etc. That would make a difference in case you needed to have all of your gear stay in a comfortable place.

Otherwise it's probably not worth it.

You will also have to choose between cloth and leather (artificial or not). Be careful as I've had a couple of leather seats in the past and after a while the leather started peeling off.

Surprised they didn't mention Ergogenesis Bodybilt chairs, they can reach upwards of $1800 and include options for 24/7 foam. They even have seats cushions for certain medical conditions, they have nine different types of seat cushions.

I ended up buying the Herman Miller Embody, and for those interested in hearing about it here we go. The embody chair is definitely an aesthetic chair with amazing features and extreme comfortability, what disappoints me most is that it doesnt own a freaking headsupport, for 1.3k dollars I kinda expected a head support. Other than that, simply amazing.
