Gaming Chair Test 2017: buying guides and chairs in comparison

It's been almost three years, developed when advertised for players office chairs in the race seat design to a trend that has been dismissed by PC gamers be short-lived, yet still continues. Just two Articles (PCGH 11/2014 and 08/2016) confirmed that fitted with supporting plates in the back and seat area chairs are not only suitable for the typical attitude when playing (90 degree backrest position), but also in everyday prove office use as comfortable seating.

Initially, the market for the Gaming Chairs was still manageable, manufacturers such Maxnomic (Need for Seat), DX Racer or via sold AKRacing models were the top dogs among the offered seats for players. With Noble Chairs, nitro Concepts, Vertagear, Thunder X3, Speedlink and Tesoro 2,016 other manufacturers compete since mid for the favor of playing on PC clients. In recent months, many gaming chair manufacturers presented their latest collection. With the latest models, there are differences in the design, choice of colors and materials of the covers, in the basic structure but soft many models only slightly from each other and often have the same features that ensure that the player is sitting ergonomic and stress-free. These include armrests that can be adjusted not only in height, but also horizontally (left / right and front / back) and a lumbar support in the form of a cushion. is on what things when buying a Gaming Chairs have to respect that we show in the next purchase advice we give additional four concrete purchase recommendations.

Body measurements and weight: The most important criteria when purchasing gaming Chair

The first thing you should do before buying a gaming chairs, is to gather information about the maximum height for the chair is suitable in-law. Unfortunately, there are only a few manufacturers that make such Maxnomic (Need for Seat) or Noble Chairs information about the maximum height and even offer gas springs with different lengths so that different sized players can use a model. If such an indication from the manufacturer / seller of Gaming Chairs can not be found, the sample is sitting is the only way to check whether the chair is suitable for their own body size. That a chair is too small, it can be seen first of all because the mind is above the headrest. Furthermore, the legs extend too far above the seat addition - ideally a two fingers would be wider distance from the edge of the seat surface to the hollow of the knee - so that its edge presses on the underside of the thighs. If the chair is too large, however, it is difficult with the entire sole of the foot touching the ground so you automatically moves with his legs on the seat forward. In addition, the backrest can support not optimal back as their shape and the position of supporting plates do not match the size of the back.

The second fundamental criterion that there are to consider when buying, is to specify the maximum weight load. While the size limit is mentioned in only a few manufacturers, indicating the maximum weight load on the other hand is found in almost every gaming chair. Does the chair carry too much weight - on average hold office chairs for players approximately 120 kg weight - it comes on the one hand to problems with the gas spring. Secondly, the chair loses much of stability, as too much weight pressing against the back or on the front edge of the seat. In addition, also suffer the roles that cushion the tilt mechanism and the whole steel frame Belt construction, when the maximum load is exceeded.

The design, colors and decorations: a matter of taste

Gaming chair test Comfortable playing: The great buying advice for Gaming Chairs (15) Source: PC Games Hardware Although there is a seating and not a piece of clothing at a Gaming Chair, personal taste plays a crucial role. When surface material for rest and seat surfaces thoroughly differences between genuine leather, artificial leather or fabric, for example, in the absorption of sweat or feel of the references can be identified. However, the color, the design of the headrest or supporting plates in the shoulder area as well as applications such as embroidery or logos are always a matter of taste, since each buyer is different preferences. Therefore, the subjective features remain also outside in our buying advice. We are not interested how good and trendy looks a model that matters to us is that you can play with comfortable and ergonomic and work.

Features: These things need a recommended Gaming Chair offer

What roles spare the parquet floor? Which material to the base, pass the frame structure for the seat surface and the backrest and need one necessarily the so-called 4D armrests? We show what features make a Gaming Chair recommended.

The right underbody: not tilt it should be

Gaming chair test play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (2) Source: PC Games Hardware The main reason for the optimal level of a Gaming Chairs is the star base and fixed thereto roles. The material from which the base is made of metal should be die-cast aluminum or even better. In priced models, the star base often consists only of plastic injection molding. This material is relatively stable, but it comes sooner to fatigue fractures or cracks in long-term exposure. In the roles it should be noted that these are smooth, whether they come on hard (parquet / tiles / stone) or soft floors like carpet, PVC or laminate used. Ideally, they also have a locking function that is particularly on hard, slippery floors beneficial. Meanwhile, some manufacturers offer such Maxnomic, DX Racer or AKRracing also known as Blade roles. Whose tread consists, unlike regular rolls, made of rubber, whereby not only the traction rise to smooth surfaces, but at the same time to be spared the ground. Thanks to this rolling characteristics, the blade wheels are suitable primarily for hardwood floors such as laminate and parquet. However, whether it is this appreciation that beats with 40 Euros to the price, really worth, we still need to test it in practice.

The Sitzmechnanik: Gas Spring (height adjustment) and tilt possibility

Gaming chair test play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (3) Source: PC Games Hardware The gas spring is the key component when it so the weight is about the height adjustment and the maximum load that the office chair has to endure the race seat design. Although the manufacturers / distributors provide details here you should not miss to test how far the height adjustment can extend and which seat height can be adjusted maximum here on a trial sitting. In theory, the optimal seat height is reached when the upper and lower leg at least form an angle of 90 degrees and the front edge of the seat and back of the knee will be straight attitude at the same height. Since an angle greater than 90 degrees is still back friendly, you should also try Moreover, if the height adjustment allows a position which is located 5 to 10 centimeters above their ideal seat height.

Another feature that should provide each Gaming Chair is a tilt mechanism that can be locked in several stages. The tilt mechanism ensures that we can move towards playing away from the monitor or desk without the back is permanently protected from bad posture. It is important that this mechanism is not shaky and has no play. In addition, the chair also has to keep its stable state when the maximum strain on the front edge of the seat, while the tilt mechanism is locked, and the seat assembly tends toward the rear. We recommend a tilt mechanism but only if a mechanism is present in addition, can be adjusted with the resistance of the body weight.

The construction of the seat and backrest

Gaming chair test play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (17) Source: Tesoro The preferred cushioning material for office chairs with Rennsitz look is PU cold foam with different degrees of density (the higher the density, the harder the bearing surface). At recommended models (see Section four buying tips), the basic structure on which rest the related PU cold foam mats, of a steel tube frame with elastic bands. Alternatively, there are also constructions with metal grids or chipboard. Of Gaming Chairs with the latter base structure in the backrest and / or seat unit but we do not recommend starting in general. If you can live with a metal grid structure, usually saves a few euros, anyway, we recommend not least because of ergonomics and comfort, a metal frame elastic band design (see clicking comparison) below. Only by the elastic bands, the foam pad is ideally located on the seat surface and can additionally be optimally regardless of the material of the cover to the buttocks and back shape.

The armrests: variable height and position are important

Gaming chair test play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (12) Source: PC Games Hardware An armrest should not be missing in any seating for players and a model is only recommended if the armrests sufficient such as in our saving tip the Tesoro zone balance to a large have come and on the other are adjustable in height. In addition, the supports must also rotate and can be moved from front to back. More expensive models like the Maxnomic Commander SIII / Office Comfort or leather Epic Gaming chair are even equipped with so-called 4D armrests. They have the advantage that they also can be moved from right to left, to make them closer together for players with narrow shoulders. This is the optimal posture while playing and writing of great advantage. In the ideal attitude, whether played or typed in the office, your forearms should in fact been resting on the arms without being moved for mouse actions or typing with all fingers. This attitude avoids the tension in the forearm muscles and wrist.

The seat: room for the rear of the optimal hardness and supportive side bolsters

Gaming chair test play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (13) Source: PC Games Hardware on the Probesitzen no buyer of a gaming chair should be without, which is the first and most important advice when it comes to the size and comfort of the seat. Since there are quite even players with wider rear parts of pure seating area should be for a failed sufficiently wide so that the outer sides of the pelvis and thighs not encounter unpleasant on the side panels. For another, the length dimension has to be right, so that almost the entire underside of the thigh is on the seat - a two to three finger is ideally wide gap between the edge of the seat and back of the knee. Furthermore, one should look to see if the seat sides fulfill their function as a side support for the pelvis. Especially high expansive and not padded seat side can prove to be very uncomfortable when the buttock and thigh muscles lie there and not on the flat portion of the seat.

The backrest: The chief support

Gaming chair test play Comfortable: The large purchase advice for Gaming Chairs (9) Source: PC Games Hardware In addition to the seat unit is the backrest, the most important component when it comes to the comfort and ergonomics of a Gaming Chairs. Which must be positioned in a 90 degree angle to the seat and must not be too short, so the mind completely extends partially or almost the optional equipped with a pillow headrest. Of the optimum length of the back, it also depends on whether the two shoulder cheeks are suitably positioned so that also give the body part really stop because the area between the cheek either too narrow or too wide fails. Furthermore, it must adapt to the form of the backrest to the shape of the back, so this at the typical gamer attitude (90 angle between the thighs and upper body / lower arms are almost completely on the armrests on) is well supported, only then is a very good ergonomics possible. The hardness of the cold foam and the terms of the seat and backrest should correspond to their personal preferences. Who calls a muscular rump narrow his own, perhaps like a soft to medium-hard padding. If the rear end slightly wider and there are fewer muscles a hard padding is comfortable. The orientation on your own preferences is also true for the covers. Not everyone likes leather, because it absorbs sweat faster and is generally more sensitive than vinyl. Others prefer fabric covers, because it is not so warm on them in summer and on the leathers. Since there are many subjective factors in the game, we save a recommendation.

however, in return advised buying a Gaming Chairs, which is equipped with both Maxnomic models with a "real" lumbar / lumbar support. Which ensures that the lumbar region is optimally supported when you press, for example, the pelvis in the gamer attitude towards the back. While much of the manufacturer mitliefern a small pillow to support the loin, when incorporated into the backrest mechanism can (see picture above) the role of rest, on the loin rests, be changed by turning knob from a straight to a convex shape. Such a construction, which is the ultimate in ergonomics, we found in our tests only in the predominantly designed for office use Maxnomic Commander S III and Office Comfort (OFC).

Why buy a DXRACER gaming chair?

Gaming chair testThe company DXRACER was launched in the year of 2003. The interesting thing, at that time no one thought PC gaming chairs produce, because before the company produced respective sports seats for racing cars. This could already great quality and convince processing. was unique ideas DXRACER leader among automotive suppliers. Soon, the company discovered the potential gaming market for themselves. The experience of the manufacture of sports seats was incorporated DXRACER in the development of its gaming chairs. Now, as gamers were able to enjoy the high-quality chairs that particularly through its comfortable ergonomics bribe.


  • ... a high backrest
  • ... adjustable angle of the backrest (up to 170 degrees)
  • ... a headrest
  • ... the opportunity to bring the backrest into the reclining position
  • ... makes a damper with gas pressure adjusted in height
  • ... armrests that can be changed 8 times
  • ... makes a tilt mechanism, but also find themselves
  • ... a four-star aluminum
  • ... a robust steel frame
  • ... ergonomic seats, which can be customized to the user's individual needs


The term derives from the Greek, from Ergon (= work) and Nomos (= rule, law). So translated it means something like "rule of Work". and says those rules that you should take in terms of posture to heart so as not to have to suffer a lumbago someday.


The human body, especially his Back muscles, vertebrae and intervertebral discs. make no difference between professional office work and hobby gaming. Sitting is sitting. And incorrect sitting is always harmful, no matter why. In most cases, there are back pain. werden.Die triggered by ergonomic error in the sitting posture insurance estimate that by back problems the Federal Republic of Germany economic damage of more than 17 billion euros caused by absenteeism # 8211; yearly. Who pursues anyway already an office job and then have to spend a hobby more daylight hours to gamble, asks for incorrect seating a howling back out downright. It can even shorten life expectancy as such. if you flays the skeleton for years with false postures! Therefore, it is absolutely unacceptable to sit to play on makeshift objects like bean bags or wooden dining chairs. have wooden chairs none of the spine corresponding curved backrest and are inflexible. while beanbags offer even form the skeleton does not stop. With such habits the first herniated disc would be only a matter of time.

Basic requirements in the gaming stool test

Each chair for long periods of sitting has the same ergonomic requirements meet. This must also consider a gaming stool test or while shopping. Essential are the following criteria for consideration:

Curvature of the seat back

The upholstery of a gaming chair may be soft and comfortable, but more importantly is always that the shape of the backrest with the natural Double S-curve of the human spine corresponds. In this way prevents the back somewhere special unpleasant presses or the other way around no support gives.

Stabilization of the lumbar and cervical spine

Above all, these two areas are particularly vulnerable: The lumbar vertebrae in the lower sacrum are mechanically subjected to the greatest load and may not slide or bend. Many back problems do in fact lower back near the sacrum noticeable. Remedy by additional curvature to the lower backrest. which supports the lumbar region of the seated person and prevents the lower back slipping backwards, which can happen, especially when leaning forward. Likewise, the Head should at hours of gaming Reduce neck muscle fatigue are supported. The neck will thank one!

Individual adaptation options

The body must never be forced into unnatural or unfavorable attitudes. Since gamers different sizes and proportions have, you should at a Gaming stool test Also make sure that everything is adjustable. This applies, of course, primarily the seat height, you should always have the soles full contact with the ground. while eyes level with the upper edge of the screen must be located. With most chairs can be the seat height in the area between 40 and 60 cm adjusted above the ground. The height adjustability of most office chairs and gaming takes place today by gas. Further marginal adjustments relate to the armrests and headrest.

Every time you let yourself fall into the chair, reflects a hard seat with inadequate suspension the force back to the buttocks and into the spine. In the long run can therefore mere sitting down are painful. the gaming chair test, so take care that the seat is well padded and feathered.


To remember that one is of course, a Gaming Chair for home alone heard, and you always used only one. While the chairs are occasionally or regularly exchanged by the management office, must the gamblers acquire its new gaming chairs themselves. Since it would be good if the current chair on which you settle down could last long enough for a gamer life. While one is responsible for the sustainable stability of the chair to a large extent, such as soft as opposed to sitting down Niederplumpsen, the chairs do but also himself from a difference in their design and their materials.

At each gaming stool test should Maximum load of the chair in kilograms (KG) be specified. A good gaming chair should 120 kilograms can handle to stay for most people over very long periods of time available.

Some brands also offer Special models for "giant" at. The chairs in this category are then specifically for people with a size of about 180 cm and weighing more than 150 kg been made.

An incidental quality feature is here is the relationship between strength and weight are: The higher the rating at all the lower weight, the higher the quality. Because it shows that you have installed wiser material for good statics for such chairs. An example of good use of materials provides a hub made of aluminum instead of plastic. The metal is much more stable, but does not make the chair still too heavy. Generally one can say that metal always beats plastic, when it comes to stability. You explore at a Gaming stool test So then, even if a metal frame is integrated into the chairs.

Subordinate aspects gamers stool test

Rather negligible criteria when gaming stool test are as follows: Although the armrests provide additional comfort, but a diligent gamer usually places both forearms on the table anyway, not the chair backs off. This is due to the use of both hands on the keyboard, mouse, controller, joystick or steering wheel. Unless, of course, the table with the computer and the keyboard would be very narrow, so that the keyboard should be placed almost to the front edge.

Then the arms would avoid no room on the table surface and would have on the armrests. Some armrests have a concave surface. in which the arms can be laid. Good padding protect permanently the underside of the arms. In any case armrests are a comfortable function. It is better if the armrests both can move up and down and forward and adjust rear. to each person on the chair and her body measurements to meet.

background noise

Some noise-sensitive gamers # 8211; So those who always explore also like to quieter fans and graphics cards in the PC case # 8211; may certainly also value the fact that the chair not flashy squeaks or creaks when turning and rocking. After all one of them, the noise on ergonomics. However, many gamers wear headphones while playing # 8211; or an entire headset for communication in multiplayer. the sound effects were so equipped drown out any noise while playing anyway. Nevertheless, manufacturers must also pay attention to suspicious noises, so in this respect in high-quality chairs no reason for concern .


Likewise, the tilt function, so the rearwardly inclinable backrest. hardly relevant when gaming stool test, although mandatory for good ergonomic notes, but for a gamer, that they shall never sit back while gambling in general. More likely is the unhealthy leaning forward that brings the eyes too close to the screen. Unfortunately, there are no chairs with a kind of lock that prevent leaning forward. must here create the design of the computer table and the preparation of the monitor remedy.
In some high-quality chairs, the backrest can be tilted back to the horizontal. Pictures of it then you see at a gaming stool test, which suggest that they could sleep in the chair. However, that is a maximum of a nap between suitable. because no matter how good chair can replace a comfortable bed. And want to sleep in chairs safely few gamers see unless you on a LAN Party .

tilt mechanism

How important a gamer is the tilt mechanism, everyone must decide for themselves. Some prefer to be quiet and focused on the task, while others happily in front and bounce back when them times a spectacular headshot succeeded again. is definitely the tilt mechanism in combination with a locking function (The bobbing blocked) in the built most good gaming chairs .

And of course a gaming chair should be mobile on wheels. A quality feature would be here the scratch freedom of the rollers. So the guarantee that they like even on smooth surfaces Parquet or laminate leaving no permanent scratches or similar damage .

Breathability of the seat

Also only convenient feature is the breathability of the seat and backrest: Especially in summer it is good if it can breathe and the skin of the thighs, the buttocks and the back, if it rests with the clothing on air-permeable material.

The difference with the PC chair: Design for gamers

Gaming chair testThe most significant difference between gaming and office chairs is probably the visual design be. What would make it visually overexcited in the office (although the best gaming chairs would compete with the best ergonomic executive seats easily at any time), is just right for your own home hobby. Gamer chairs are characterized by strong colors and daring turns in Design .

The color selection covers almost all needs and tastes. But it would be worth it in any case when buying a gaming chair, to make explorations in coloring. Sometimes it might be possible that one may wish for other colors than those in the pictures. The most commonly used color for gaming chairs, as with the office chairs Color: Black. However, often with a striking secondary color for optical emphasis, e.g. Red. But beauty is purely subjective. which is why at the colors also recommend wide Fächerungen in the gaming chairs.

The material provides a further Comfort and design aspect the gaming stool test is. Should it be made of leather or fabric? Fabric is mostly office chairs synthetic or semi-synthetic, with a blend of cotton and polyester. contrast leather ensures a comfortable seat sensation due to its smooth, robust surface and stands for high quality. For this, however, it is not breathable. Also, one should pay attention to whether they are dealing with real or synthetic leather in the gaming stool test. Real leather may be cheaper and available certainly, but synthetically produced leather is animal friendly. Also Seating can now be vegan or not. And finally, leather can also warm up faster than substance, which may pleasant or disturbing depending on the season.

Gaming chair testFinally, the design of the forms of backrest and seat in combination with the colors can drive pretty bizarre, exciting flowers. Some gaming chairs like visually almost indistinguishable from office chairs, since the ergonomic requirements are nearly identical. But other chairs respond very unusual the flavors of many gamblers or their ego in order to find appropriate buyers. For example, some gaming chairs are shaped like the seats in a race car. which of course those gamers who like playing with a steering wheel Racing Games, benefit. This is no accident, because many manufacturers of the driver sitting inside of racing cars or classics were inspired.

Other Gaming Chairs remember again to command seat of a spaceship. so you can better empathize with a choice of games of Star Wars, Star Trek, Mass Effect- or Halo series. Quite a few gamblers would surely find it cool to be able to turn around once in a lifetime like a supervillain in a fancy seat.

Gaming chair testadditions

Many other gaming chairs are also characterized by Edges of the backrest, which extend forwardly. or padding at the edges of the backrest. Thus, sitting in the chair person of the back is a little enclosed in a Kule. This is a purely optical aspect which is not meant to prevent that it tilts laterally during sudden impotence out of the chair. For that conventional arms are still better. No, this feature is simply the coolness owed and still gives a little more comfort. Other features which are typical in chair design, are studded surveys on the seat, which usually protrude diamond-shaped. This makes the chair feels under the seat flesh something real, while the spaces between the elevations for better ventilation.

Overall, one can say that the design of a true, uncompromised gaming chair is many things, only one not boring. The appearance of the chairs would be much too exciting for the office, and will have to sit in a chair so as to fill the seat of a cockpit before the next dive.

What price is the really sufficient?

Gaming is a billion dollar market, and no market without manufacturer for essential accessories. Meanwhile, many companies have realized that gaming is not a niche hobby for secluded basement gamers, but professional attention earned. That's why today there are several companies, some of which produce and to only those accessories including chairs for gamers distribute. To cheaper providers include, among others HJH, Kiebel, Maxstore, Mysit and Terena. Their chairs sometimes cost less than 100 euros, but do not have the ergonomic aspects mentioned above or only partially. Therefore chairs are recommended in this price range only for occasional gamers who will not sit long in one place.

Gaming chair testFirst from a value of 200 euros and more can be expected right, ergonomic chairs that will fully meet the dedicated gamers. The best providers of this are DXRACER. Akracing and Noble Chairs. be herehigh grade offered chairs worth between 200 and 400 euros. with all the extras and comfort functions. Add to that the longer shelf life of the products of these vendors. the more expensive chairs are therefore cheaper in the long term because they are usable for many years and need not be exchanged in between.

Gaming stool test: Recommendation DX Racer

Therefore, the unconditional recommendation goes out to all gamers that you definitely DXRACER, Noble Chairs and Akracing should prefer an absolutely-quality gaming stool test. Officially convey DX Racer and Akracing Although the impression that their chairs are suitable for racing games primarily, but in practical terms it makes little difference what games you play in these chairs. A hectic first-person shooter or a fighting game you can play on the "Racing Chair" just as good.

The manufacturers of the chairs are also in the E-sports scene no strangers. Similarly, the put the mice, keyboards and headsets for the e-sports are available as the hardware companies, the PC Chair companies act as a kind of sponsor for the event. E-sportsmen swear on the ergonomic chairs, because they train every day behind the scenes at the prestigious tournaments for years continuously to reach the highest leagues. There are professional training camp and coaches especially for those teams, and therefore it is important that None of the athletes gambles back by false chairs broken .

Gaming chairs for consoles

Gaming chair test Not all gaming chairs are designed as office chairs. For all the enthusiasm for the PC must not be forgotten that a very large proportion of all gamers play worldwide on consoles, especially the Playstation, XBox and Wii. These are mostly offices consoles for which you do not sit down at a desk. That is why the concept of gaming chairs for consoles is also slightly different.

These chairs are more reminiscent Armchairs for office chairs, and users sit in them usually sit back. In addition to the chair configuration, it is inherent in the gaming chairs for consoles that in them Speakers and connectors for the controller and headphones installed are. So the chairs represent an interface between the cables of the console and the input and output devices for the user.

Extravagant gaming chairs

Gaming chair test

Finally it should be said that even gaming chairs are not on the head births of some visionaries immune who like to put extravagant, extra expensive and extra crazy gaming chairs in the world. Neither one will find these chairs at each provider, yet she could not afford any. For completeness, but they are briefly mentioned.

The Emperor Workstation for example, connects the chair with the hardware. A PC is already built into the chair, and the monitors hanging from a bow. which extends over the back to the front, in front of the face of the user. Disadvantage of such gaming chairs that have integrated the hardware in itself. However, the rapid aging: Is the hardware is no longer up to date, and they can be difficult or impossible to exchange, the remaining chair obsolete just as quickly. Professional gamers and gamers tinker the upgrade because anyway their own computers and without pre-assembly line productions or integrated PC.

Other Gaming Chairs act as simulators using a movable seat. Flips in a racing game based in the same direction in which the driver's seat would tilt under realistic physical conditions at the same moment of the game. The same is true for flight simulators. where a fully flexible seat is proper also that responds appropriately to every movement of the aircraft.

Chairs for a new culture

The gaming stool test is a specially adapted product for a modern hobby of millions of people around the globe. Gaming # 8211; So playing virtual computer and console games # 8211; has its roots in the last decades of the 20th century, but recognized as a well-established hobby and as a sport until after the turn of the millennium. The gaming industry is a global billion-turnover, and on channels like YouTube and Twitch to gamers rise to true pop stars. Both national and global levels scrape called YouTuber millions of fans around him who subscribe to their videos and watch them play. The most successful among them combine nearly 50 million subscribers worldwide. And also German-speaking Let's players attract an audience of millions. How popular can still be one thing if even millions of people just watch other people in the exercise of this matter?

Meanwhile also E-sports tournaments held. where professional, sponsored gamers compete individually or in teams against each other. Often takes the place as well in boxing matches in big arenas and with live commentary. But with the difference that even the best gamers professionals not sit differently from ordinary office workers on chairs. And Youtuber and live streamer perform their duties usually sitting # 8211; just like them and their fans probably mostly in watch sitting in front of the PC become.

Let # 8217; s Plays

It was joked times over Let's Plays. that they are as useful as watching someone in the restaurant in how this someone her own food, for you yourself come here himself eats and you just here watching. Whether sense or nonsense, all this can not hide that the culture of gamers is exercised in the seats. From the developers, the program sitting in offices the games to the players themselves, the playing these games sitting .

So lively and varied that gaming as a hobby or sport brain may be, if only to be mere spectators, yet the ergonomic pitfalls must be considered as any sedentary activity actually represents a failure to act on the body. In a gaming stool test next to the trendy look and Futurism mainly the same health requirements are made as to the conventional office chair.

Facts about the hobby gaming

That gaming has long been no edge culture avid gamer anymore, but has taken the center of society, is also reflected in the statistics on gaming: spending, according to a study published in 2014 average German gambler 104 minutes daily with gaming. Mind you, only the average gamer, so this bill all concludes with a playing on a trial basis or for reasons of time much shorter. On the other hand, this means that there are also many gamblers who gamble much longer, much longer than 104 minutes before the screen. This average per se thus does not reveal how massive the eruptions may be away from the mean value for some gamers up.

How much sitting a player?

Another study from the US has calculated that Hardcore and professional gamers even to playing 50 hours. After all, this means a playing time of more than two full days in a row without interruption. Who could # 8211; or want # 8211; two days at a stretch like to sit in an office chair still? On an annual basis, this means that one spends more than 104 days, or around one third of the year with gambling. And now you have to add in thought, what can do to a man 104 days, which is not properly during this time. So you should give the highest priority to ergonomics when gamers chair test as in the office chairs. as gaming because of its Kurzweil lets gamers have no idea how wrong they could sit.

That excessive gaming can not be guessed those affected, how much time passes, confirm reports of tragic deaths, mostly in the Far East (especially South Korea), where gamblers went after two days of continuous play at home or in an Internet café at a premature heart attack based. The time can thus fly at gaming. And health coincide with when you are sitting all this time in a false, crooked posture.

Average age

Also interesting is the average age of gamers, and its development. It continues to grow, adapts more and more to demographic average population at. Meanwhile, there is in Germany 32 years. A clear indication that people who had discovered the Gaming ten to twenty years as a student or students themselves, held this hobby alive and continue to operate as an adult. One reason is the diversification of the game: There are today for all the right genre, whether first-person shooter, third-person action games, adventures, puzzles games, role playing, racing games, strategy games, games in between and games a week-long, if not require months of dedication. But advancing age is only one more reason to get serious deal with the ergonomics of gaming chairs. To avoid unpleasant surprises later in the gamer life. A gaming stool test with price comparison helps in decision making.

The specially designed for professional gamers computer chairs provide great comfort for gaming and a stunning design. Meanwhile, there are many manufacturers of gaming chairs (such as DXRACER or AKRacing), as well as huge price ranges. To help you in your buying decision I make in the following best gaming chairs on the market before and recommend you the best choice for every budget!

Why do you need one at all gaming chair?

Through my own gaming career (hey, after all, times European champion in Unreal Tournament Domination) I have learned one thing: We spend so much time on the computer - Matches, training, scrims, Stream view - that we, with all peripherals and hardware No compromise should be received. This means, for example, a really good mechanical keyboard like the Razer BlackWidow costs only 100 €; that we hew to a thousand times a day, buying a really good keyboard should be mandatory. It is the same with the mouse. the headset. the computer, the mouse pad - and the Gaming Chair !

Even though I thus sound like an old man, but: The health of your spine is important. If you eight hours a day (OMG !! NERDS 1) sits on the PC, an incorrect attitude in a cheap computer chair can permanently have dire consequences. Therefore, a request: Invests 50 to 100 € more for a clever gaming chair before you damage it bears. Look at it positively - in a hot gaming chair you sit a lot more comfortable, and your friends will make envious eyes ��

What makes a good gaming chair?

The general rule: Those who buy cheap, buy twice. There are so many rickety gaming chairs out there that you have to be really careful. we therefore when purchasing the best gaming chair must pay attention to the following things:

The best gaming chair must, of course, extremely stable (even with "fuller" gamblers). An Insecure chair evidence of poor workmanship and annoying in continuous use. Poorly processed seams or inadequate materials are unfortunately widespread.

Some gamers are thin shirts, some have rather "thick bones" (D) of too much fast food. A good gaming chair must be able to have a perfect ergonomics for long Bonanza sessions, suitable for the particular body shape. Especially important is a good comfort in the lumbar spine and head.

Setting the chair as frags in the game: The more, the better! The right gaming chair need adjustment for any height. Really good gamer seats allow a completely flat adjustable backrest, for example, if you look after half a lap CS: GO would stretch short.

Anyway you do with any of these computer seats a miss - and bad Gaming Chairs unfortunately there en masse on the market.
