For all the gamers who play 12+ hours a day (and not bot ofc), what gaming chair do you use to make sure your tushy and back are comfortable?

Discuss.

A car seat salvaged from trash and bolted onto a home-made wooden socket of suitable height. The matching seat, setup likewise just with the back support removed and turned around, serves as leg rest. You can't buy anything more ergonomic for money.

I use a chair like this for the past 18 years, sitting on it for 10-15 hours a day, never getting tired. Tried and destroyed a lot of gaming and office chairs of various designs until I stumbled upon this gem and never looked back.

I got tired of my chairs breaking, even more expensive chairs get worn out and seemed to need replaced within less than a year. One of the office chairs I was browsing said 'weight capacity 185 pounds'. How about considering the weight of an 'average adult' and making chairs that can also hold the weight of the other half of the population? The armrests break, the hydraulics break, and soon, you're either replacing parts at almost the cost of the chair, or buying a new chair altogether.

Eventually I got tired of buying new chairs, and decided to build one. I pulled a passenger seat from a Buick in a local junkyard, cost $25. I bought some 1.5 inch steel pipe and made a frame. I installed some heavy duty wheels, and I have my reclining office chair that has been comfortably seating my ass for over a decade.

I have an autofill (pretty much a clone of these other gaming chairs).. and it now feels like I am sitting on a brick. It wore out after 2 years.

I went with secretlab titan chair. Been one of the best chairs I have ever purchased. I work from home and game from that chair so it gets about 16 hours of day usage.

They also have a big and tall edition.

I've had it about 10 years and it has served me well. The mesh back is nice to have in the Summer months.

If I was buying tomorrow I think I'd get something like Bones, Kingu's or Krupt's chair.

I stand most of the time I play but have a tall stool to take breaks now and then. Ergotron arms also help with monitor placement and tilt. I have sit/stand desks at work and my easel is standing height in my studio so I've just gotten used to it. It definitely helps with my back and shoulder issues. The only time I sit for long periods is at my drawing table and I just use a tall drafting chair for that.

If you can manage it there are affordable sit/stand options out there these days. Even some DIY versions as well, I've seen some interesting IKEA hacks that seem easy to build.

Here is some info:

Best chair ever.

Good back support. Is comfortable in whatever strange way you sit in it (leaning, leg up, crossed legged, etc). Never looked back! (y)

Recliner Racing Office Chairs of BestOffice, I purchased this chair to replace my old chair. I’m not a gamer but I am sit at my desk a lot so I wanted something more comfortable. This chair is comfortable, easy to assemble, looks nice and has a massager which is a plus. I would recommend!

Herman Miller Aeron - infinitely adjustable. Also a desk that moves up and down so I can stand or sit. Essential.
