As gamers, we love to focus on the hardware side of gaming. Graphic cards, monitors, consoles, are usually a top priority when it comes to building out a set up, but when focusing on a players health and comfort, finding the right chair is most important.
A great chair can improve your game just as much as having a top tier graphics card. No more back aches distracting you from getting kills in Fortnite, or shifting in your chair to get comfortable.
Just because you’re sitting in front of a monitor, doesn’t mean you still can’t be taking care of you body. Below, we compiled a list of our favorite gaming chairs that not only look they were ripped out of a futuristic race car, but also provide plenty of comfort and support.
