What is a Gaming Chair?

Probably, the best way to enjoy playing a favorite game, watching a movie and even listening to music is to sit comfortably. Therefore, the proper chair will not only provide you with comfort for long hours but will also give you the opportunity to feel like a hero of the movie or game. That is why we have come up with the best gaming chairs review. Every gaming chair possesses unique features to enhance a gaming experience.

Consider our best gaming mouse, best gaming monitors, and best gaming keyboards reviews and make the right choice!

What Features to Compare

The main difference between an ordinary armchair and gaming chair is the comfort level. As for technology, this special chair is far ahead of gaming equipment as most models already come with built-in sound systems, headphone jacks, wireless connectivity and audio inputs. An intense rivalry is going on between various models of chairs.  That is why it is quite difficult to choose the best gaming chair. Some models of gamer chairs are more comfortable while some are technologically better.

The first thing you should pay attention to is the Material. The frame can be made of plastic or steel which is much more durable. As for the surface, it is usually made of artificial synthetic leather, vinyl or polyester. Such materials have good breathability and high wear resistance. But, you can also find unique chairs with fleece covering. This material is pleasant to touch, soft and slightly fluffy. In addition, it is quite lightweight and resistant to wear/multiple washings.

The next important criterion is the Design. The chair must be comfortable as it is intended not only for games but also for relaxation. Basically, you need to choose the seat according to the type of games you play. If you prefer racing games or flight simulators, you should consider chairs resembling a cockpit or a racing car seat. On the contrary, for still games, it is advisable to pay attention to sofa chairs. They are soft, cozy and can be placed in any part of your dwelling.

As to the Convenience,  most modern chairs are equipped with a number of extra functions. For example, the built-in speakers and a subwoofer allow you to completely immerse into the game atmosphere. Furthermore, the constructions designed for additional accessories can turn your room into a sports car seat or cockpit. Moreover, soft backrest and armrests will prevent body fatigue. Finally, a very convenient folding design will make chairs more mobile. 

Naturally, you also ought to take into account the Size and Weight of the chair. These parameters influence stability during active movements. It goes without saying that the massive structure is more stable and more suitable for simulation games. But, if you want to use a chair for some other purposes, you should consider more compact ones. The lighter the chair the easier you will move it around the house. As for the sizes, you have to determine what armchair would suit you and your room the best during long gaming battles or while watching movies.
