Recommendations for a good gaming chair

Post by paladin »

Looking for recommendations for a good gaming chair between $250 to $300. I have a regular office chair which isn't that comfortable for sitting any length of time. I sat in a couple of gaming chairs and really liked have it felt. Wondering if someone has a gaming chair that they use that feels good.

Don't look at me. I sit at the dining room table.

Well, the first thing you should do is avoid anything specifically marketed as a "gaming chair", because they'll charge you a hefty premium for a slightly edgy colour scheme rather than any notable benefits in comfort.

Your best bet is to take yourself down to a decent furniture store and go sit in the floor models until you find one you like that's in your budget. Some things are impossible to judge without a hands-on test.
There are hardly any excesses of the most crazed psychopath that cannot easily be duplicated by a normal kindly family man who just comes in to work every day and has a job to do.

Often the colour, gamer branding and price increase are the only changes.
