Gaming chairs, aka the most comfortable version of regular office chairs, don't get enough hype. They're intended for gamers who spend hours playing on a computer, but that doesn't mean those working nine to five in front of a desktop can't benefit as well.
First, what is a gaming chair?
The first gaming chair was launched in 2006 by DXRacer, a company that originally made seats for luxury sports cars, hence their intense shape. Since then, gaming chairs have totally blown up—check out any eSports competition or get on Twitch and you'll see most users sitting in them.
Compared to standard office chairs, the backs of gaming chairs sit higher up to support the head, neck and shoulders to enforce better posture and keep the back from getting sore due to slouching.
So, which one should you get?
Amazon's best-selling gaming chair by Homall has nearly 5,000 reviews, garnering it 4 out of 5 stars. And, at just $94.98 (priced nearly $20 less than it was during the holiday season), it's a great chair for new and advanced gamers alike.
It's wear-resistant PU leather looks sleek, while it's steel frame and orthopedically and ergonomically designed cushions support the body for hours on end. A detachable lumbar support pillow and headrest pillow provide added support and comfort.

Sit straight up or turn the Homall Gaming Chair into a rocker with a knob below the seat. The reclining function allows users to rock back between 90° and 180° for ultimate comfort.
"The parts feel sturdy and the design is better than some more expensive chairs.The wheels roll well on my carpet flooring. The construction holding the back to the base with two hinges as opposed to one I feel gives this chair more leaning capability than some others. I always feel secure no matter what angle I set the back at. This chair is the #1 best seller for a reason. It is a great bang for your buck and a non-expensive way to improve any PC gaming experience," one Amazon reviewer wrote.
"I'm not a huge gamer but easily spend 10 hours a day in front of the computer because I'm a systems admin, blogger and podcaster. Wow I'm so impressed with this chair. It seems very solid and firm, and at 44 lbs, built well," another reviewer wrote. " The lumbar support and head rest are removable, but I love them. The arm rests are comfortable. This chair is so much better than what I have at the office, I'm probably going to buy one for there as well."
