Are Gaming Chairs Worth It? 7 Things to Consider Before Buying A Gaming Chair

Racing-style chairs are incredibly popular right now (and have been for a few years). But are gaming chairs worth it? I’ve reviewed multiple PC gaming chairs now and in this video, I go over seven different factors that—based on my experience—I think you should consider before you buy a gaming chair.


My current recommendations for gaming chairs are:

For average-sized users:

* Secretlab Titan (9.4/10) -

For larger users:

* DXRacer Tank (9.2/10) –

For smaller users:

* Secretlab Omega (9.0/10) –
* DXRacer OH/FD01/NR (8.4/10) –

Budget-friendly options:

* GTRACING E-Sports Chair (8.4/10) –

Gaming chairs are overpriced junk. Just buy a good quality office chair and it’s a lot better.

Bought a dxracer it almost fucked my tailbone. Went to ikea and bought a regular office chair…. i did a 10hrs marathon on it and it only tickled it.

There is a small company where I live (Cincinnati) that makes custom computer chairs. I got one about a week ago and its amazing! They actually take measurements of your body when you buy it to make it to your size exactly. The down side is that they are expensive (Mine was a little under USD 1,400.00 for a the basic(ish) one) but they are totally worth it and it will last a longggggg time. They also make custom desk and like reception chairs ect. Check them out at

The main reason I want a gaming chair is because you can adjust the back, back n forth. I have a nice office chair but its stuck in one position that has me leaning back (similar to 2:35) and I hate it now. I want to sit upright since I have back problems.

I bought a second-hand wheelchair at a storage auction for my computer chair. Its designed to be sat in for long periods of time, and pretty comfortable. The only downside is no headrest but for something I paid 5 bucks for its aces

meredith allison says:

Thank you for this. I’m trying to buy a gaming chair for my 11 yr old son and had no idea there were so many options! Your video helped, but I’m still overwhelmed. If anyone can reccomend a chair for under $150 for a kid, I’d really appreciate it! (He’s 75 pounds and under 5 feet tall)
