I had one, but it broke... it seems to happen to a lot of people. But they're nice if you can find one like the second poster described, it's such an awesome experience, plus it helps with back issues and such.
My friend has got one of them.
I cant remember what it is called, nor can i remember the make of it, but it was really good.
The sounds make you feel as if you are in the game because of where they are on the chair & the vibrating at part also add the the experience.
I havent bought one myslef, but do consider the thought of doing it in the future.
Yeah, the chair isn't as important to me as the hardware that I use. Right now I'm using a simple office chair, like I always have ever since I started playing games. But come to think of it, it does add value to the experience, don't you think?
I haven't purchased a 'gaming chair' before as I normally prefer to spend the big money on my components and any peripherals I may need. My chair is starting to wear down a lot now though so I'm probably going to invest in a gaming chair soon.
I destroyed mine by leaning too much. I guess it was an average priced chair, but it was still very vulnerable at that point in the back, so it got destroyed quickly. Now I'm on this crappy monoblock chair that came with the apartment, and I guess it does its job, and it's better for my posture too since I don't lean at the back for a long period of time anymore.
No, I have never owned or used a proper gaming chair before. I don't know why people love them so much. The price for such a chair is really too high. If you compare it to other ''normal'' chairs - for that price range you can literally get any chair you want. Plus the designs on some of these gaming chairs seem very uncomfortable to me. The lower back area seems weird.
I much prefer my nice, big, comfy office chair. It's nicely pillowed, large armrests, large support for my back and a good cushioned part for when I want to rest my head. All of this for 1/10th of the price of a gaming chair.
I don't have any special chair. I have the one made for the study. So it;s not that comfortable. Also the laptop is placed on the glass chair, it just makes me want to have some hand issue while moving the mouse on desktop. So not the most ergonomically good situation there. That being said, that chairs need to be comfortable.
I used to own a gaming chair back when I was like 12ish because I thought it was cool but now I realize you don't NEED a gaming chair because it's really the same thing as normal desk chair just for extra the money.
