What to Look for in a Video Game Chair for Adults
What exactly does a video game chair for adults look like anyway? Is it going to be sterner and more business orientated or maybe classier and more refined? Absolutely not! With gamers ranging from the single digit ages all the way to the 60’s and the average gamer being somewhere around 28 years old, a video game chair for adults just means we finally have money to invest in something nice to sit in rather than using anything comfortable in the house that we could get our hands on like when we were kids. Not to mention that our bodies could handle a lot more back then, nowadays you’d be hard-pressed to find someone nearing their 30’s playing video games comfortable for very long from the floor or sitting in something with no padding or ergonomics. Detailed below you’ll find a few examples of what we think makes a great video game chair for adults.
- 270 lbs. weight capacity
- Lightweight construction
- High quality thick padding
Arozzi may not be as commonly known of a brand as DXRacer, but make no mistake, they are definitely close competition. Here we have the moderately low priced Arozzi Enzo Series Racing Style Gaming Chair which was originally created in Sweden. It has been ergonomically designed through and through and also sports a generously thick, high quality padding which envelops the back and armrests as well as the seat, allowing for extended sessions of gaming free from fatigue, aches and pain. One of my favorite extras about this particular video game chair for adults is the motorsports theme they used and the many striking colors it’s available in.
- 350 lbs. weight capacity
- Heavy-duty, sturdy tubular steel frame
- Support pillows and high quality PU leather
The Kinsal Company is no stranger to producing fine products, and this Kinsal Ergonomic Leather High-back Gaming Chair is further proof. You won’t find more features packed into a video game chair for adults than this anywhere else; especially for the price.

These pillows aren’t just for show like the dozens you’ll find throughout a well-furnished home’s décor, we’ve learned that supportive pillows on a gaming chair can do wonders to improve posture and prevent muscle strain in important places such as the lower back, neck and shoulders.Kinsal even offers great deals on shipping and giftwrapping their chairs if you want to purchase one for someone else. It will arrive in exquisite damp-proof, shockproof packaging along with a warranty card.

Here we have a high-back racing chair design from Merax which delivers quality and style where it counts, all at a low price and with minimum sacrifices to available features. If you’re looking for an awesome gaming chair but don’t have the budget to drop almost half a grand on a name-brand top of the line chair, then this might be a good option instead as long as you have a desk which can get along with a chair that doesn’t have adjustable armrests. Aside from this one drawback it’s a pretty great chair for the price and available in different assorted colors so you’re sure to find the one to fit your gaming space best. A video game chair for adults such as this one should always make the list of other considerations.
- 396 lbs. weight capacity
- Fully adjustable
- All high-quality materials
The AK-9011 from AKRacing is a true motorsport inspired bucket seat, even down to all of the minute details. This is a high end model from a well-known brand. This chair was ergonomically engineered to be as comfortable as possible while also able to endure whatever is thrown at it. It’s been constructed with a full metal frame so the chair is as durable and sturdy as it gets – I would hope so if it weighs 60 lbs.! It features an oversized seat and high-backrest so larger framed people needn’t worry whether or not it will accommodate them properly.This chair is proof of the old axiom “you get what you pay for”, and with this chair you get a whole lot – except this model doesn’t come with support pillows like most other high end chairs, which we found rather peculiar and unfortunate. But despite that, this is the style of chair which all lesser companies are trying to imitate and replicate as cheaply as possible.
After a long day at work, possibly where you sit in an office chair for most of the day, you deserve to relax, get comfortable, unwind and enjoy some of your favorite hobbies in a high quality seat which doesn’t remind you of being at work in the slightest. Not to worry though, because you won’t find any of the amazing chairs detailed above in a typical office setting near you anytime soon. We hope this article brought you closer to finding the perfect video game chair for adults to fit your particular style, budget and needs. Happy Hunting!
