    Totally agree with you, nothing is comfortable for long term use.

    A good mesh seat is.

    I will also add support for mesh seats.
    Our household uses Herman Miller Mira 2's and it is the best chair I have ever had.
    The Aeron which was mentioned before is also a good choice and is available for a much cheaper price in some places than the Mira 2 as well.

    Cloth upholstery over a breathable foam seat with mesh backing is perfectly comfortable.
    Hell, you can ditch the back rest too if the seat is designed properly

    Yeah Gaming chairs pretty much look like racecar seats. I just use a regular office chair (non rolling for some reason) because the way they look bothers me/hurts my back

    New to Mafia, sorry if I mess up!
    I see dead people.... Yes, kinda my ting, ya know

    I'd recommend finding a proper office chair instead of buying "gaming chairs". Office chairs are usually created with long hours of computer work in mind, are much higher quality and don't look like christmas trees or chairs out of a 1990s F1 car. The "gaming" label is often just used to peddle subpar shit to people who get overly excited whenever they see something they can relate to. Gaming chair, gaming energy drink, gaming table, gaming curtains....in almost any case you will be better off just searching for a quality product in that specific area instead of buying into things just cause they are described with the gaming tag. I'm not saying there won't be quality stuff advertised as a "Gamer Product" sometimes, but the general trend is that advertising things as gaming products means they don't defend themselves by their own merits.

    It's the same principle as with "kid products". For example, Mobile phones "for children" are usually just shit phones that try to prey on clueless people who want to buy something proper for their children. In 9/10 of cases it's better to just buy a regular phone that suits the needs of a child.

    The massive advantage of leather, whether faux or not, is that you can easily clean it. For people who spend a lot of time at their desk and often eat & drink there this is an actual game changer. I've been using leather chairs for like 10+ years now and never had any issues of discomfort. Sometimes when I play without trousers on I have to move from time to time not to get glued to it but that's about it.

    Yeah. The visuals make gaming chairs look weird for anyone who is more than 15 years old and/or isn't a "professional" gamer.

    2)Do some fucking sport kids. Move your body a little. Moving your muscle will decrease sitting pain, and it's also healthy. Jog a little, ride a bike, go for a nice walk, join a gym and do some resistance training (not even to gain muscle, just to move your body), swim, whatever but move your ass a little every day.
    I’ve used gaming chairs for years. In all honestly, a super GT RACING GT505 gaming chair is what you may want. Comfort over looks

    IMO the best "gaming" chair isn't one of those typical racing seat type gaming chairs at all. Personally I think they're too stiff and gimmicky.

    The best gaming chair is a good office throne! Something that executives use.
    Herman Miller, HumanScale are examples.

    You can look for office closure sales, where they might be letting go used furniture cheap!

    I use a Herman Miller Aeron in gray. Got it cheap through an office closure sale.

    Sitting on a Secretlab Titan for a few months now, Best purchase ive made the last years.
    Came from a high end office desk chair, but somehow this thing is more comfy than the office chair.

    I recently got the Corsair T3 Rush, and I'm pretty impressed with it. I hate faux leather, but this one has a nice cloth weave. It's also dark grey and black, so not garish like some chairs. I didn't want to spend the 550 for the cloth Secretlab, and Noblechairs were pretty expensive for what I was looking to spend. Corsair's previous chairs had some complaints about them, so I was a little trepidatious about it. But, ended up really glad I went for it. Good ergonomics, comfortable, and it was $300 iirc.
