Why is a gaming chair better?

by David Mickel Educational Management

What is the hype about gaming chairs? For their price tag, it’s hard to understand why someone would pick a gaming chair over a normal office chair. Many standard chairs offer some of the same features as well, making it harder to understand why gaming chairs have taken the market by storm. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why gaming chairs are better:



To put it simply, gaming chairs can do things that office chairs can’t. Take the Music Series from GTRacing – adding Bluetooth speakers to a gaming chair is so outrageous yet so fitting for the market. It doesn’t end there; vibrating lumbar supports, footrests and the ability to tilt yourself all the way back are all things that gamers can pick from on the long list of features that today’s chairs can offer. Sure, some of them are gimmicky and might feel unnecessary – having a set of Bluetooth speakers on the back of your chair when you can plug a headset into your PC feels a bit unnecessary. But, as with much of the gaming industry, it's all about offering flexibility and allowing you to do things how you prefer. So, sometimes that might mean pairing your phone with your chair.

Not to mention, GTRacing also makes gaming chairs for big and tall people.


Advanced Ergonomics

Everyone’s got a story about that one horrible office chair that they regret ever sitting in. There’s just something about that mass-produced look and feel that tells you that the main aim of this chair was being cheap enough to buy in bulk rather than helping you with your lower back issues. Gaming chairs are renowned for offering advanced ergonomics that consider your full body and tailor their design to what you need. They have winged sides to support your shoulders, high backs to support your head and padding in the right places to correct your posture. All of these are comfortable to sit in right from the start but are most noticeable at the end of a long time sitting in them. Your back aches are a thing of a past!



Gamers know, you spend so much time with the gear you play on – so it’s important that it represents who you are and that it's tailored to what you like. You just can’t get that level of customization from standard office chairs. Standards chairs do have some level of adjustability in them; of course, you can drop the height and sometimes lock the rocking angle. But gaming chairs offer a whole different level of adjustments, from the position of pillows, everything about the armrests and three different levers underneath that’ll just need to experiment with to find out what they even do. Then let’s not even get started on custom themed chairs, like the eSport teams or Special game-themed editions of Secretlab’s Omega gaming chair.

Premium Quality

Many gaming chairs boast the most durable manufacturing materials. This isn’t to say that standard office chairs are always poor quality, but you always know that when you pay the premium price that accompanies gaming chairs, you get the premium quality as well. From high-tech fabric that doesn’t make you sweat as much, to memory foam that molds itself to you while you sit – you’ll feel like you’re an astronaut with the high level of manufacturing that goes into today’s gaming chairs.


There are just so many reasons to invest in a gaming chair, these are only scratching the surface. There is a wide range of options available even, from entry-level to top of the range – with prices to match. In general, though, gamers spend many hours in a day in their chair, and finding one that is comfortable to sit in and suits their needs is a top priority.
