If you haven’t already made the switch from your battered old folding seat to a fully featured gaming chair, now is the time to do your back a favour and take the leap. But with more gaming chairs to choose from than ever and each one representing a significant investment, where should you start?
When you think of a gaming chair, you probably picture a racing-style bucket seat. This is all because DXRacer, a well-known American company in the gaming chair space, began the trend in 2006 when automobile sales took a nosedive and it made up for a loss of earnings by repurposing sports car seats into office chairs. Popularity then grew as they became a staple in the setups of streamers and esports players, and it’s not hard to see why, with great back support, comfort, and extensive adjustability.
Bucket seats aren’t the only style of gaming chair you can choose from nowadays, though, and with more people working and playing games from home right now, long periods at the best gaming desk make back health more important than ever. Plus, let’s not forget, they just look cool too, and with crazy designs like Noblechairs’ Elder Scrolls-themed gaming chair, the possibilities are endless.
