If you’re a gamer who spends hours in front of a screen, you already know that sitting isn’t that great from an ergonomic point of view.
Fortunately, gaming chair manufacturers realize this and have actually made some of the most ergonomic chairs- both for gaming but for also sitting in general.

This will naturally come down to your tastes, budget, and what features you want.
Below are the latest and most popular gaming chairs on the market. We’ve reviewed and rated each of these gaming chairs based on ergonomic safety, quality, features, and what customers are saying.

The gaming chair also features a very strong build and wheels that will roll better than most – making it easy to move from space to space with ease.
One of the most attractive features is the lean-back design that allows you to be comfortable at any screen- even the surround system screens for optional gameplay experience. The back design also helps to circulate air so that your back doesn’t sweat after long hours of gaming.

In our opinion, this chair is one of the best gaming chairs money can buy – it just missed out top product! The Elecwish Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair is one of the more comfortable gaming chairs we have sat in and offers endless ergonomic features and a high build quality. One of our favourite features is the adjustable footrest that even extends back for watching movies or enjoying long hours of gaming in a very comfortable position (you might even fall asleep).
Adjustable arms, neck rest and waist rest offer one of the most comfortable and ergonomic designs we have seen in a gaming chair at this price point. This is one chair you will not want to miss out on.
Coming in at a very affordable rate, the Elecwish Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair features a very strong steel frame and a comfortable design. The chair comes with adjustable neck and waist rests, very smooth easy-glide wheels, and a 300-pound load capacity (more than most chairs). This design-build will give you endless hours of gaming in comfort. Our favourite feature on this chair is the unique bottom design that uses small flare-out seats that help to hug you and keep you in your seat while you game – perfect for even the most intense racing game.

Furmax is one of the most respected names in chairs – especially when it comes to design and ergonomics for your home and office chair. The Furmax Gaming Chair High Back Racing Chair is no exception and features a very comfortable and usable design that allows gaming for long periods of time without discomfort.
The best feature of this chair is the leg rest that is nearly an extension of the chair – it’s so comfortable you may just fall asleep. Our only wish is that the bottom seat cushion would be larger to suit the bigger gamers – although a 310-pound chair capacity should suffice. With its very affordable price, the Furmax Gaming Chair offers a 30 day, no question money back guarantee – perfect for those who are on the fence about grabbing a new chair (although we bet you’ll love it).

As the most expensive chair on our list, you would expect a great build quality and an even higher standard of ergonomics – and you would be right. The Ficmax Swivel Gaming Chair comes packed with ergonomic features for long hours of gaming or work in your office. The adjustable armrest, seat height, extendable footrest, lumbar and neck support provide a chair that has endless customizations to suit anyone’s posture or gaming style.
The look and feel of the chair are very comfortable and comes in many colours to suit anyone’s office or gaming space. If money is no option, this is one chair you will not want to miss.
The RESPAWN-110 Racing Style Gaming Chair is your bread and butter for gaming chair quality for the price. For the price, this chair is packed with features. With adjustable design in nearly every aspect we just wish that the build quality had a little more strength.
For those that are gaming or working for a couple hours a day – this should suffice and won’t break the bank. With that said, the upholstered leather does provide a feeling of luxury and comfort – but the wheelbase and 275-pound weight capacity could be problematic for some.
Our last and most unique design comes from the X Rocker Pro Series Video Gaming Chair. With no wheels and a design that looks like its right out of a video game, you have a striking chair for your home or gaming space. With a comfortable multi-fabric design, build in AUX/speaker combo, you have a chair that can nearly feature as a home entertainment system.
The only downside – it doesn’t really move. The chair will rock back and forth to fit your viewing height, but there are no wheels and this limits its ability to function as a working chair. Those who do not need a working chair may find the best value for features with this gaming-specific ergonomic chair.
