If you don't know what you're looking for, the prospect of getting one of the best gaming chairs can be a little daunting. Many look very similar, for a start, so why is the pricing so different? And can they double up as a decent office chair?

Well in our list, we've either used the gaming chairs for long periods of time to really get to the bottom of their unique selling point. When we haven't been able to get hand on, we've looked at several reviews from sister tech sites, or gone straight to customer reviews. In all picks, we evaluate the build, materials, comfort, look and price. There's nothing here that I personally wouldn't use as a regular gaming chair.
