Gaming Chairs

We all want to be comfortable when we play our favorite games. Not everyone does so from their living room couch, though. A lot of us use some of the best computer desks, and a regular chair just doesn’t cut it when you’re sitting for several hours. That’s where gaming chairs come in, and you have some great options to choose from. The GT Omega Racing Pro is one of the very best that doesn’t break the bank. But there are others if you’re looking for something a little different, and something for everyone when it comes to the best types of gaming chairs.

Best For Most People: GT Omega Racing Pro

GT Omega specializes in racing chairs, so you know you’re getting a product built from years of experience. The GT Omega Racing Pro is suited for everyone looking for a gaming chair that’ll bring hours of comfort during long gaming sessions. This one features a 160° recliner adjustment, armrests that move in four directions, and a removable lumbar cushion all for the price that’s generally cheap than the competition.

As comfortable as it is, it could benefit from the use of memory foam, specifically cold-cure, to regulate the seat temperature. Foregoing the material keeps the price down, but it also keeps it from besting some of the more premium chairs. What’s more is that it can only support up to 250lbs, which isn’t ideal.


  • Inexpensive compared to other brands
  • 160° recliner adjustment
  • 4D armrests
  • Removable lumbar cushion


  • No memory foam
  • 250lb weight limit

Best Premium Pick: Secretlab Titan 2020

If you’re asking yourself, “what features does this chair have?” the better question would be “what doesn’t it have?” The Secretlab Titan 2020 boasts built-in adjustable lumbar support, cold-cure memory foam, 4D armrests, a pillow with cooling gel, and a multi-tilt mechanism so that in addition to reclining, you can tilt the seat as well. You’ll almost want to fall asleep in it. Not exactly helpful when you want to stay up all night and play games, but the comfort is unparalleled.

Secretlab’s Titan 2020 series is possibly the very best you can get; it just comes at a steep price tag. The premium features certainly warrant the asking cost. But it’s a hard sell to some people when a cheaper chair will get the job done just fine and be reasonably comfortable as well. But if you have the extra money to spend, this is the chair to get.


  • Built-in lumbar support
  • Cold-cure memory foam
  • Head pillow with layer of cooling gel
  • 4D armrests
  • Durable leather
  • Multi-tilt mechanism

Best For Your Posture: Razer Iskur

Although the Razer Iskur comes at a premium price, Razer has made one of the highest-quality and most comfortable PC chairs on the market. Featuring adjustable lumbar support that should keep you comfortable, the Iskur also aims to help keep you in the perfect posture while you’re sitting down for long sessions of gaming or working at a desk.

While the price of the Iskur might turn some off, a premium chair with this many qualities is hard to find, and when you’re buying something that you’ll be using for as long as a chair, you don’t want to pick up something that you’ll regret down the line.


  • Fully sculpted lumbar support is fantastic
  • 4D Adjustable armrests
  • Excellent design and look


  • Expensive
  • Only has a 3-year warranty

Best Heavy Duty: EWin Flash XL

As much as other companies focus on comfort, some chairs just aren’t made with everyone in mind. That’s where the EWin Flash XL comes in. Its maximum weight limit of 500lb smashes the competition, making it our top heavy-duty recommendation. Most gaming chairs can’t even support 300lbs. And its durable steel frame is complemented by high-density memory foam for added comfort.

While the size may be a selling point for some, it’ll turn off other people from picking it up when a smaller chair will do just fine. That’s not even to mention its price tag, which is by far the most expensive on this list by a large margin.


  • 500lb weight limit
  • Durable
  • 4D armrests
  • High-density memory foam


  • Expensive
  • May be too large for some people

Durable and built to last

When you need a more durable chair that can carry heavier weights, EWin Flash XL is the way to go.

No matter how comfortable a gaming chair is, it can be hard to justify paying the price of a brand new console. This option, EasySMX’s memory foam chair with a retractable footrest, is meant for those shopping on a budget. Just because it’s cheap, though, doesn’t mean it completely skimps out. It still sports features like a removable lumbar cushion and a retractable footrest, which is honestly one of the best things about this chair.

Despite the footrest, it lacks in other areas. Notably, it armrests can only move up or down, a far cry from the four-directional armrests other chairs have. And it can only recline up to 135° back. This may seem like a lot, and it’s good enough for a lot of people, but it certainly doesn’t stand up to the competition and could be better.


  • Retractable footrest
  • Inexpensive
  • Removable lumbar cushion


  • 2D armrests
  • Seat cannot tilt
  • Only 135° recline adjustment

Once you use a chair with a footrest, you can’t go back without one. EasySMX makes sure of that.

Best Recliner: Homall Gaming Recliner

More and more movie theaters are doing away with their old, uncomfortable seating in favor of reclining sofas, but why should this be limited to theaters? If you play games in your living room on the big screen, you may just need a reclining sofa yourself. Homall’s product is inexpensive, reclines with a footrest, and even features pockets on the side.

Where this loses points is that it’s not exactly great for an office setting at your desk. Every other gaming chair on this list has wheels, and as a recliner, this one decidedly doesn’t. It’s just not as mobile. And the fact that it doesn’t include a cup holder rubs salt in the wound.


  • Full recliner
  • Side pockets
  • Inexpensive


  • Not suitable as a desk chair
  • Not mobile

For home theater seating, forego a chair altogether and pick up Homall’s reclining living room sofa.

Best Mesh Chair: Zenith Ergonomic Mesh Chair

This is the least “gamified” chair here because it’s not designed for gaming specifically. This mesh chair is intended for an office, and it just so happens that it works as a good gaming chair too because of its ergonomic design and built-in lumbar support.

Since this isn’t a dedicated gaming chair, don’t expect a lot of the features you usually would. It doesn’t recline as far as other chairs do, and it can’t support a substantial weight limit — only up to 250lbs. Zenith’s mesh chair is suitable for gaming sessions that don’t last several hours on end.


  • Lightweight
  • Perfect office chair
  • Inexpensive
  • Built-in lumbar support


  • Can tilt back but not fully recline
  • 250lb weight limit
  • Not as comfortable for long gaming sessions

Basic necessities

Just need the basics without all the leather? Zenith’s mesh chair is a lightweight, affordable alternative.

Bottom line

If you want the perfect combination of high quality at an affordable price, then pick up the GT Omega Racing Pro. Despite its lack of memory foam, it’s still an extremely comfortable chair, only elevated by its removable lumbar cushion and 160° of reclining adjustment.

When the price is of no issue, and you want the very best of the best, you have to go with the Secretlab Titan 2020. It has everything you need and more, from cooling gel in your pillow to a built-in adjustable lumbar support mechanism. That it supports a multi-tilt function seat is only the icing on the cake.
