When shopping around for the best gaming chair, there are a few things you really need to consider. Some of them aren’t directly measurable until you actually own the chair, like “how soft is the seat?”. Others like “is there spine support” is quite easy to see on the newer chairs with pillows or other items that help with your comfortableness (if that’s even a word).

You spend a LOT of time at your computer doing work, playing games and watching movies so choosing a chair that’s right for you is probably one of the most important purchases you’ll make not only for your health but for your comfort too. When considering a chair, something that isn’t often mentioned is “will it fit my body type”, we’ve tried to answer that question below for tips on which chairs suit a larger build to smaller builds.

Our team has put together what they think are the best gaming chairs of 2020 and we’ve tried to include every budget. Racing stripes and bucket seats isn’t the only thing we checked when choosing these chairs, we made sure they’re supportive, adjustable and cosy. A main concern people have is quality and wether the chairs are made from quality materials has also factored into our review.

Best gaming chairs of 2020 (so far)

Secretlab Omega Softweave

Dimensions: 68 x 70 x 126-136cm
Seat height: 126-136cm

PRO

  • Extremely comfortable and supportive
  • Soft, textured fabric
  • Sturdy and durable

CON

  • Fabric can stain easily
  • Seat is a little hard

Overall this has got to be the best made gaming chair. The quality is exceptional, however only drawback I have had is the hard seat. It’s made to last but still needs to be slightly softer. It is made to last, which is why it is so hard, after a few months of use, the seat hasn’t givin in much. This chair remains the best gaming chair even in 2020.
