Sit Down and Game Awhile: The Ultimate Guide to Gaming Chairs
June 4, 2017
If you’ve ever spent six hours or so in a beanbag chair, completely absorbed in the intense battle action on the screen that sits slightly above eye-level, you truly understand the importance of having comfortable, ergonomic chairs in your man cave. Before your next marathon gaming session, outfit your space with comfortable gaming chairs and gamer-friendly furniture, and your body will thank you. Here's what you need to know about game chairs before you start shopping.
Video Game Chairs for Console Players
Console gaming setups are often flexible spaces that serve many purposes, and the seating options for this area are just as varied. The best choice depends on the area's size and purpose, as well as your gaming style and your budget. A comfortable sofa is ideal for casual games with friends or family members, but serious gaming sessions require more support and maneuverability. If your playing area doubles as space for relaxing and watching television, invest in at least one gaming chair that is comfortable during intense playtime and that you can store somewhere else if needed. When space is limited, opt for a comfortable loveseat and a quality game chair, or furnish the space entirely with stylish ergonomic chairs and recliners when gaming is the room's primary function.
A good video game chair usually sits low to the ground like a beanbag, but offers a full backrest for support and added comfort. Additional options such as swivel bases and rockers enhance playtime for some gamers, while others prefer a stable base with adjustable features. Chairs with integrated wireless speakers deliver the ultimate gaming experience, and they're the perfect spectator seats when you're streaming concerts, sporting events or action-packed movies. Ergonomic recliners are also good choices for console gaming. Consider a reclining gaming chair that has a stable base but also supports a variety of seating positions.
Computer Chairs for PC Games
Whether you're shooting it out or unwinding with a few hands of video poker, an ergonomic chair is just as important to your well being and comfort when you're playing as it is when you're working. Select a gaming chair with height and back adjustments that allow you to play in comfort regardless of your position. While you’re at it, consider adjustable armrests that easily move up or down to suit your playing style. Mesh fabric offers a breathable, flexible backrest and helps you maintain a comfortable temperature when your adrenaline starts pumping during heated battles. Unfortunately, too much sitting may not be best for your health, regardless of the level of support a chair provides. Consider adding an adjustable standing desk to your office setup, and use it for work as well as extended gaming sessions.
Gaming Chairs for Mobile Gamers
Tablets and laptops may not support the same graphic-rich game experiences as consoles and desktops, but mobile devices do offer gamers a lot more freedom and mobility. Recliners and sofas provide mobile users with comfortable space to stretch out and enjoy a game of solitaire, or to curl up and spend some time on puzzle games. Adjustable lounge chairs are the ideal choice for tablet users, and a quality laptop desk turns almost any seat into the perfect place to play your favorite laptop games. Let video game chairs or padded desk chairs also serve as seating for laptop gaming and tablet use, or integrate stylish and colorful novelty seating to bring life to the space.
Choose gaming chairs based on your style preferences and your budget, but most importantly, select chairs that are designed for comfort. Whether you're clearing your mind with puzzles or blowing off steam in digital combat, the right seating can help make game time fun and rejuvenating.
