If like me, you spend hours upon hours sat down playing your favourite PC games, then undoubtedly you have felt the pain as you jump up for a quick toilet break or to get another beer from the fridge. I’ve been there, we’ve all been there – but there is a solution, finding the best gaming chair isn’t just a solution to the pain, it can also help improve your overall gaming experience and potentially make you a better gamer. When I originally switched from an IKEA office chair to my Secret Lab Omega gaming chair, I instantly realised that I’d been missing out. The support that gaming chairs provide, from their lumbar support to the adjustable arm supports are essential in reducing the pain but also help with supporting the arm whilst gaming. Plus, simply being in a comfortable position when I am trying to make a 900m headshot over the dust fields of Miramar really does help.
Coming very soon, we will be testing a variety of the gaming chairs available on the market today. Starting with the very popular Secret Lab Omega gaming chair series, to be honest we already have two of these chairs in the office, but we’re so busy working on the gaming mice section of the website, we’ve yet to begin on this. However, I can say that these chairs are absolutely fantastic and definitely live up to the hype that surrounds the brand, but remember we haven’t tested any other brand yet.
