A gaming chair is a type of chair designed for the comfort of video game players.[1][2]

Gaming chairs are virtually identical in functionality to executive chairs, a type of office chair. Most gaming chairs consist of a full-back seat[3] attached to a five-pointed wheeled base. The height of the seat, and often the armrests, can be adjusted. The angle of the chair back is usually adjustable, and can tilt back, sometimes as far as 90 degrees from the upright position. Some gaming chairs may include built-in electronic devices such as speakers, vibration and RGB lighting. These features may interact with video games to enhance player experience.
