However, when choosing between these two options, there are several features that are to be observed and kept in mind so that you make the right choice according to your needs. Here are the things, you need to ponder up on before making these choices. 

1. When It Comes To Durability…

The chairs are made to define style, comfort and durability. Gaming chairs are ergonomically design seats that are built for use over a lengthy period of time. These chairs were initially invented by a sports car enthusiast who later on used these chairs into sports car as well. 


The office chairs on the other hand have a short lifespan as compared to gaming chairs. They cannot be misused and mishandled and are required to be handled with caution. They required extra care when shifting from one place to another. So, which one suits you best, office chair or gaming chair?

2. Talking about Comfort…

Gaming chairs are colorful and comfortable and are available in different colors of your choice in the market. However, office chairs on the other hand seem to be boring, one colored and unstylish. 

On the other hand, Office Chairs are more about sophistication, decency and comfort. 

3. In Terms of Adjustability…

Adjustable Spine Rest – In gaming Pcs, the spine is levelled by an adjustable lumbar bone support attached to the backrest. The Chair armrests that may be adjusted for additional support. A tilting backrest allows for regular posture adjustments while seated, which encourages activity. 

Most studies now recommend dynamic neutral seating postures as the best way to remain fit and save yourself from back problems for lengthy periods of time. This is why 'healthy sitting' seems same in all sorts of ergonomic seats.

Adjustable Arm Rest – The majority of classic desk chairs or office chairs in general feature fixed arms. When they fail to satisfy the demands of the consumer, the vertebrae areas are left to bear the weight of the hands/arms. 

Reclining Adjustments – In gaming PCs, there are reclining adjustments that means, you can set up your chair at a certain angle according to the screen you tend to look at and then you can work easily while the position of the chair is locked at a certain angle. Whereas, in a normal office chair, there are no such adjustment options given to you. 

4. The Affordability Matters…

Gaming chairs are more affordable to the gaming enthusiasts since they have cheaper option to choose from all sorts of gaming designs. 

While, office chairs are much expensive and usually not preferred to gaming guys since they are more expensive that is one of the reasons, most of office people are now getting gaming chairs for their office, keeping in mind the features and all other aspects. 

5. Which Position Suits Your Working Style…

Unstructured chairs that are placed on the floor in a folded form and can be easily unfolded whenever you need them are one sort of gaming chairs. This is one of the ways, players incorporate their positions quickly. 

Gaming chairs are usually designed for TV games that are played at a distance and gives a feeling of your being seated at a higher place which is the purpose of gaming chair. In the same room, these seats can be used to play as the multi-player game as well. 

Office chairs are used for the similar height of computers or laptops, usually positioned at eye-level of the person sitting on it. It’s designed to work in this way. 

6. Visually Appealing Chairs

Gaming chairs use neon colors and usually brighter colors in combination with the black so its look smore appealing and catchy to the eyes. 

Despite the fact that the office chairs are usually more sophisticated, they are not designed to seat your body posture as gaming chairs do . One of the reasons could be the fact that gaming people are prone to sitting for a longer period of time while playing games, etc. 

Office people, at the same time usually sit for hours and hours in the office and this is made in such a way that people can have rest and maintain their body postures during long hours of sitting and in fact late sittings at the office. Their backs are made to maintain a straight posture of the body especially the back. People having height, back issues or other body issues would be able to sit comfortably on these seats. Well, does this mean that gaming chairs aren’t comfortable? NO! 

Still, these office seats do not provide support to the Lumbar region as much as gaming chairs do. They have extra paddings to give support to the back. While an office chair, you may need to put a back support to several chairs and this I think is a turn off point for many people, especially those who work from home. 

7. In Terms of Weight…

Gaming chair is more weighted than office chair since they have multiple paddings to support up your back and around your body. They are made for the purpose of moving around and therefore work for longer periods and would not hurt, if they are consistently moved from one place to another. Nevertheless, a little care obviously given to any product would increase its life. 

The above traits have pretty much summed up why you want to go for an office chair and gaming chair simultaneously. Both the chairs have their comfort and discomfort depending on person to person. Some people find office chairs to be more expensive and uncomfortable while also there are people who says that gaming or racing chairs are compact and dis-comfortable too. 

Now, it’s up to you which option would you like to opt for, Racing/Gaming Chair or the Office one? You tell me…
