Some types of general gaming chairs include chairs that sit on the floor, rocker chairs and tilting chairs on small pedestals. PC gaming chairs resemble typical office chairs with extra features, such as sound-systems, though some PC gaming chairs use car-like designs as well. Some gaming chairs, such as those shaped like cars chairs, try to simulate the environment within the game itself.
Designers make gaming chairs with comfort as their primary concern, knowing that gamers may spend many hours a day sitting in the chair. In addition to well-designed chair backs, gaming chairs use rockers, rollers or sliders to allow more body movement and alleviate aches and pains from sitting still for many hours. Some chairs even include massage and reclining features. Additionally, many gaming chairs come with extra features, such as game controller holders, beverage holders and built-in surround-sound speakers.
Popular brands of gaming chairs include X Rocker and Cohesion. Both companies sell full-featured rocker chairs and pedestal chairs that often include fully incorporated sound-systems and subwoofers; however they are often quite heavy. Both companies also make lightweight, portable gaming chairs, but these lighter weight chairs do not include as many extra features. Other, less specialized brands, such as Homelegance and Serta, also sell well-reviewed gaming chairs.
