As I have already pointed out, the DXRacer chair is one of my favorite models on the market right now (check out my DXRacer review!). Here I want to give you an overview of some of the most popular chairs this brand has to offer. It is very important, to choose a chair that has the right size, measurements and stregth to carry your weight and fit your posture. The basic features of these chairs for gaming include: Stepless hydraulic lift made in Germany, 135 degree tiltable, adjustable arm rests, 2 years warranty on the parts, robust nylon frame with lifetime warranty, lumbar- & head-pillow included.
The best all rounder in my opinion is the DXRacer Iron Series: It is very comfortable, premium quality and has great style – its ergonomics fit almost every size and height. I recommend this model for gamers between 5′ 6″ and 6′ 7″ looking for a chair that leaves you perfectly happy!
I you are really big, then check out the Tank Series! It is the biggest chair for gaming on the market right now and its robust parts are able to carry up to 450 lbs. It is extremely comfortable and durable.

Roomy DXRacer chairs for more comfort and bigger gamers
AKRacing does not come with the same product variety in the US as DXRacer does but nonetheless: these comfortable chairs for gaming are awesome, both quality wise as well as style wise. The robust frame and gaslift allows a comfortable fit even for bigger gamers. But even though the chairs is able to carry a maximum weight of 396 lbs they are not designed to fit people that big – so if your weight is above 220 lbs I would definitely recommend the DXRacer King chair instead. Check it out ▷ here.

Early 2016 Vertagear appeared on the scene and released some pretty bad ass chairs for gaming onto the market with its S-Line models. I had the honor of getting one of these new chairs to review it: the SL-4000. As is pointed out the design is on point and quiality wise there is nothing more you could ask for. What makes this manufacturer special is that they are putting a lot of effort into implementing community feedback. A little later Vertagear brought their P-Line into the game which comes with more freedom and more lifting capacity so that there is a fitting chair for every gamer in their product range.
Basic Vertagear-Features: Heavy and durable steel base, 4 dimensional armrests, neck and lumbar pillows, sport seat feeling due to excellent side support.
Vertagear chairs for averaged sized gamers
Vertagear P-Line: generous seat for more freedom & comfort
Which brand makes the best chairs for gaming?
This is a question I get asked a lot – quite understandable since everyone wants the most bang for the buck. But in the end it all comes down to personal preferences and ergonomics. If you are 350 lbs, you have different requirements than a 150 lbs person. All the premium brands above produce great quality desk chairs for gaming and each an every one of them is a good choice. If you have the money and are willing to invest it, then go with one of the bigger models like the DXRacer Iron, AKRacing Premium or Vertagear P-Line – in my opinion these are the best chairs for gaming from a point of view that prefers comfort and flexibility. They fit most people and you just can not make any mistake in buying these chairs!
Comfortable office chairs for gaming on a budget
If you are on a budget, there are some brands that offer pretty comfortable chairs for gaming, that are not too expensive and still good quality. One of these manufacturers is Merax and it has gained some serious popularity in the US. Still, if you can aford it always choose a premium brand – since you spend so much time on it, it is just worth it in my opinion. Keep in mind: Merax is fine but they are not the best chairs for gaming. If you want to check them out, here is a link:
