While computer desk chairs are great for work and even for PC gaming, you need a different one if video and mobile games are your things. Imagine being seated while playing your favourite video game and all you can think about is how much your back hurts and how much you want to stretch it out to relieve the pressure. Wouldn’t that throw you off? How about sitting in a regular chair and wanting to recline and put your feet up as you beat your high score? Sounds familiar? We’ve asked around and here are some of the top things that you want to check before getting the best gaming chair for you. 

Back Support 

Let’s face it. You do not just play in front of your gaming console for a few minutes. At a minimum, you would probably play for an hour. Still, one hour of sitting can cause back pains, especially on the lower part. If you notice, a lot of gaming chairs for computer games come with a specially formed backrest that curves to your lower back to provide the support that you need. Otherwise, they come with a back pillow or cushion to ease your back and muscles of the strain of having to be seated for long periods of time. Specially formed backrests or added cushions also fill in the space that is created when you sit. You’ll notice that regular chairs or ill-fitted gaming chairs tend to make you slouch or lean forward. Spending long hours in a day in that position can lead to bad posture. Not only that, sitting on a chair with zero to little back support reduce the flow of blood and may cause swelling in your legs, thighs and ankles. This also puts a lot of pressure on your sciatic which causes discomfort. 


When you plan to buy yourself a gaming chair, do not expect it to be small. PC gaming chairs may come in standard sizes but console gaming chairs come in different forms and dimensions. However, when you do buy, think of how you usually play. You’d want to have space for another player right? The more the merrier! You can always get as many chairs as you’d like but think of how it would fit in your room. Chunky console gaming chairs are great but consider having two of those and how cramped it would look like in your living room or even your bedroom. Overall Comfort When you picture playing on your Play Station 5 or any other console for 5 hours a day, admit it, you’d want to sit back, recline a little bit and put your feet up. Having a gaming chair that has back support, neck support and leg support is your gaming haven. Not only does this make playing video games all the more comfortable and enjoyable, it also promotes posture support and relaxation all at the same time. You may think that something super soft should do the trick, but remember that real comfort requires something soft but at the same time firm material to support your body.
