If you’re serious about gaming your set up should be finely tuned to fit you like a glove – from the right gaming desk to ergonomic keyboard and everything in between – if you want to be able to game late into the night or stay comfortable streaming 8 hours a day, then you need to make sure you have the right gaming chair.
The only problem with modern gaming chairs is that they are designed with the average Joe in mind. With most chairs designed to hold the average weight and fit the average body shape, those of us who fall into the big and tall category risk falling out of our chairs as they struggle to support us, especially for long periods of time. Squeezing into a rickety gaming chair causes serious discomfort when you are sitting for long periods of time and if you are a streamer, then your gaming chair is going to be where you spend a lot of your time.
Don’t worry, there are chairs out there that are more suited for big and tall gamers. Chairs that are more durable, stronger, better shaped and more comfortable if you find your average chair a poor fit.
So, let’s take a look at some of the best gaming chairs for big and tall gamers:
Homall Racing Ergonomic High-Back Chair
With a load capacity of 300lbs, this racing chair from Homall has a premium, genuine leather cover so no matter how many snacks and drinks you spill on it you can simply wipe it clean. It also comes equipped with a high backrest, swivel lumbar support and a bucket seat construction so even if you are bigger gamer, you can sit in absolute comfort, with support given to your spine in all the right places.
Getting in and out of a wheeled chair can be a precarious problem. The Homall’s weight-activated multi-purpose castors activate and deactivate a safety brake accordingly to avoid any unwanted movement when sitting and rising
Secretlab Titan 2020 series
