Comfy Chairs for Gaming Are a Necessity!
When you imagine someone deciding which few pieces of super sick, high-tech PC hardware they’re going to splurge on, you’re pretty confident that a comfy chair for gaming seldom makes the list. However, you really have to reconsider how vital of a role the chair plays in the overall gaming experience. You definitely don’t want to be spending as much on a chair as you are on your graphics card(s), but at the same time your spine won’t be upgrading to version 2.0 at any point in the near future, so if you plan on enjoying your new build often and to the fullest you’ll also want to leave room in the budget to get one of the comfy chairs for gaming which can handle those long sessions. Detailed below you’ll find a few promising picks we think will help give you an idea of what you might be looking for!
- 225 lbs. weight capacity

Merax is a company which is no stranger to producing competitively priced comfy chairs for gaming and has been successfully doing so for a while. Their focus is making chairs built to last while also keeping costs and feature sacrificesminimal. Here’s an ergonomically designed executive racing style model which even comes complete with a compact footrest that easily slides and stores underneath the chair for when you’re not in the mood to kick back, recline and put your feet up. This model has been generously upholstered in high-quality PU leather, which is much lower maintenance than genuine leather, and features thick padded headrest and armrests.
- 550 lbs. weight capacity
- High backrest and bucket seat
- Assorted colors
Here’s a hidden gem from Giantex, another company that really knows how to cater to what consumers crave: bang for their buck. Alliteration aside for a moment, you really don’t find a deal on comfy chairs for gaming like this very often. They’re available in a wide variety of vibrant colors so you’re sure to find one that goes well with your office’s decor and matches your other equipment. This model’s stylish high back rest and bucket seat combo makes this chair perfect for people of all body types. The massive weight capacity is a testament to its durability. Definitely great quality and look for the price.

Here’s yet another qualified candidate worthy of your consideration from MotoRacer. This model comes with ample padding in the armrests and high backrest, and even boasts a deeply padded seat so you’re sure to be comfortable during long work days or gaming sessions. While the design is impressive and the materials are obviously of higher quality than you would typically find, we can’t help but feel they should’ve made the armrests adjustable – but if you have a forgiving desk space then this might just be the chair for you. Luckily though, they do offer this stylish racing car/luxury executive design in six different color schemes.
- 250 lbs. weight capacity
- 13/10 on an honest, yet fictitious, comfort scale
- Waterfall seat edge for better circulation
What list of comfy chairs for gaming would be complete without something from Serta? In case you didn’t know they make really really comfortable stuff. So if you haven’t had the chance to try out one of their mattresses or other pieces of furniture then this is a good opportunity. Serta’s Microfiber Executive Office Chair features fluffy layered pillows on the backrest and headrest, but despite being incredibly plush this model still offers a surprising amount of lumbar support. So don’t let the tranquil seating experience fool you into thinking it lacks where durability is a concern, as it comes equipped with a heavy-duty five-star base and smooth multi-surface dual wheel casters.
What good is having three monitors, a $10k PC and all name brand gear if your chair is leaving you aching and hurting so bad you can’t even enjoy them for more than a few hours? So the next time you’re looking to upgrade your battle station don’t forget how integral a comfy chair for gaming is compared to an overpriced mouse or keyboard with extra buttons and functions that you’ll never realistically need or reliably use.
