There are many types of gaming recliner chairs; however, four types generally stand.


These are your every day recliner. They have limited reclining capacity and cannot go all the way to sleep mode. They excellent for laying back while staying being able to look at the gaming screen.

First up we have a DXRacer recliner gaming chair. Anybody know has remotley searched for gaming recliner chairs would know that DXRacer is one of the most prominent brand in this market.

They have tons of products to satisfy the comfort requirements of the gamers. The color black stays as the primary in all variation of color accents of this chair.

Therefore, it goes in line with two most famous gaming setup colors. The only color missing is blue, unfortunately.

So coming to the highlights of the chair, it uses a patented race card design with breathable material. On top that, the arm rests are soft give the added comfort.

The high back and adjustable backrest gives extra support to neck and back.

The highlight of this chair is the top quality PU leather as the primary material along with padded arm and head rests.

If you are looking for extreme comfort at the best price tag possible, then this is the chair to get. It has a strong and a sturdy base. It comes in 4 colors. Furthermore, it is very spacious; large enough for you to sit with folded legs.

Although it does not offer a patented design or a high quality breathable material like the DXRacer above, it is a fraction of the cost. This make it quite the bargain.

Vertagear is a premium gaming recliner chair that is one of the most praised and bought product in this market.

There are a total of 10 color variation for this model including some of the rarer colors. I personally like the Black Carbon color to be the best. Its simple and can go along in any environment be it your office or home.

Attaching the reinforced heavy duty alloy base to seat is an effortless task and can be done by single person without any expertise.

Like most of the best recliner gaming chair, this chair also has Lumbar support to give your back the comfort it needs.

The chair uses a premium PVC Faux Leather with extra cushioning which should suffice for long haul gaming.

Being a premium recliner chair, it does cost more than an average recliner gaming chair.

if you want a recliner gaming chair that can ensure a perfect posture and provide you with comfort to your back, then this is the one to go for.

We all know the dangers of prolonged sitting to your backs. Gamers are mostly guilty of not maintaining a good posture while sitting. As a gamer, I know that I start to get back pains when I sit for an 8 hour long session. This is not natural.

Thankfully, there are chairs like this that have Lumbar Support. Although they are not a substitute for taking a break from gaming on regular intervals, they are much better than a conventional recliner as far as the health benefit goes.

Other than the lumbar support, this chair cushioning all over the place. it is available in only two color: black/blue and black/white.

Other than that, this is a pretty well priced chair and can support a maximum of 300 lbs. This is more than even some of the premium chairs in this list.

Viva Office Leather Gaming Recliner Chair


What do you do if you are a gamer who just doesn’t wants to get some shut eye before going for another raid with the Horde? Well, you try get some sleep on your chair.

Unfortunately, most the chairs won’t enable you get a good nap. Well, that is where this recliner sets a standard.

So you are a gamer who plays like a boss. This a large and spacious recliner chair that is a borderline sofa. I like how it mimics a Starfleet captain’s chair.

Surprisingly, this isn’t a very expensive product. If you take into consideration the premium chairs listed here, this is almost half of theirs price range.

The other most visible attraction to this recliner is the Ottoman. The great thing about an Ottoman is that you can place any where you want. You are bound by any built in length.

Plus, a large surface of the Ottoman means that it supports a longer length of your leg as compared to the built in footrests in conventional recliner chairs.

The only drawback to this chair is that it only tilts a maximum of 30 degrees. So you are far from laying flat.

This is another recliner gaming chair that comes with an Ottoman.

It is not too distinct from the one above by Mophorn in terms of functionality in comfort. The only difference between the two is style and the price tag. This is particular recliner is much cheaper.

Another great thing about these recliner chairs with Ottoman is that they have a very high weight capacity. In fact, this particular model can hold up to 375 lbs. Compared to a conventional recliner gaming chair, this is at least 30% more.

IKAYAA Ergonomic Racing Gaming Chair Office

What if you combine a typical racing gaming chair with an office executive look? You basically get an end product that looks exactly like this recliner chair.

It has so conveniently been called a gaming chair as well as an office executive chair by the brand itself. It serves both purpose perfectly.

This chair looks premium, feels premium but costs much less than some of the chairs listed here.

This recliner has the capacity to recline to an almost 180 degrees angle. You should have no problem taking a nap on this chair.

The only draw back is that it uses PU leather so if you sweat heavily, you will feel uncomfortable eventually.
