I scraped the Internet to find out which gaming chairs the most well-known streamers and professional players use; then organized their chair picks and broke down their specs.

I’m not a huge gamer, but I used to be and still enjoy the occasional match of CSGO. With office chairs. However, “I’m something of a scientist myself.”

It’s surprising how influential professional gamers and online streamers are in the gaming chair market. Individuals and teams are always getting approached by brands to shout out their merchandise.

Helpful Info Around Gaming Chairs & Some F.A.Q. Answered

Compared to most office chairs, gaming chairs are usually equipped with head and lumbar pillows and a larger backrest for extra support.

However, again these support cushions tend to be a hit or miss depending on the manufacturer. The most striking difference is obviously in the look. Your average office chair and the run-of-the-mill gaming chair are very distinguishable.

 

We extensively wrote about these similarities and differences in a post called Gaming Chairs V.S. Office Chairs – Is There A Difference?

It does, a chair is to big hurts your legs and puts a strain on your back because of that fact you have to hunch over your seat. When a chair is too small for your body, it will hurt the areas stated above and mostly likely cause strain to your lumbar muscle.

Personally speaking yes it will because it will create a better experience
By getting you focused more on the game and less on the strain of your sedentary activities. Having an adjustable chair with at least 2D Armrest is a must if you plan on gaming for long hours.
