    Why should I buy a Gaming Chair?

    For the past few weeks, I've been searching all about these Gaming Chairs, which a lot of streamers and gamers uses. Looking at the chair, they don't seem to look as comfortable as it looks like, mainly because of the height of the chair and how the support could be very slippery especially on marbled concretes and polished wooden floors.

    Although, watching a bunch of reviews from it in Youtube, people were recommending the chair because of how comfortable it is and a better investment if you are gamer or generally a person who works at your computer for long hours.

    For you guys who owns this or has tried them, what are your opinions of the chair? Could I alternatively just save myself just from looking for a better office chairs or is this better? I tried one though, but it was a Chinese brand chair, which had a very thick foam, I didn't like it.

    Right now the brands that I've been setting my sights on are DX RACER and Need for Seat.

    Please share your opinions!

    Does it symmetrically adjust to the users back or slouching?

    I personally in the longer periods sometimes get my body slouched half way through a chair, it would be great to have a chair that could be flipped though.

    Honestly... you need a good chair but not a must for "Gaming" chair...
    At the end of the day its all about how you sit and your posture..

    In that case I wouldn't recommend it. The Aeron chair can definitely adjust a bit but it does apply some pressure on your back when you do and it would feel uncomfortable.

    Although considering these chair brands, it is a great alternative and a cheaper one than a gaming chair.

    And the thing about Gaming chairs is that, if you're driving cars most of the time each day, it is easier to adjust with these type of chairs.

    Though they're really pricey and locally, we don't have the USA brands, most of them are chinese brands which I'm not exactly sure but the foams are really sturdy.

    I think they just use it because it looks cool. I personally use an executive office chair, because they give a lot of back support. Probably best for you to go to a store that sells all kinds of office chairs/gaming chairs and just try out a couple. It's all a matter of personal preference after all, you need a chair that is able to support YOUR back.
