    I unfortunately got a secret labs titan and the in reviews I saw I couldn't see the angle. There's not so much a lip at the front but it's angled back, there is a bit of a hidden lip I think though. My WRX doesn't have lip but is also angled. I would of thought companies that sing about posture would of taken into account I'm not sitting close to the floor with my feet on pedals. Other than this the chair is sized to me well they did a good job so I'm puzzled why they over looked this. All the other office chair I looked at either didn't have high backs, were actually worse than a racing chair or were over double the price of a secret labs titan. My old chair was 10 years old and half the price but they don't make them like that anymore it seems because I'd get another in a second. Nice Video, I kinda knew this but still thought a that maybe the best gaming chairs actually took these things into account.

    is this the only gaming chair that is not a racing gaming chair?

  7. Luce In Atlis says

    I have a gaming chair and I regret buying it.

  9. Scott Summers says

    I AM using a gaming chair for 2 years now, and i dont really like it tbh, it feels unconfortable after a few hours, and well, not gonna lie, i AM obese, my tights are pretty thicc so it doenst fit me that well, i get marks around my tights every day if i get like more then 3 hours on the computer

  10. John L says

    What about Gaming cables? Gaming HDMI cables or gaming desks?

  11. Just 4G says

    Gamers with racing rigs: *laughs in the distance

  12. GamingD7 says

    Buying a bucket seat chair was a huge mistake! I can't spread my legs out. So annoying.

  13. astudios says

    My main issue with them is that they're tacky as heck.

  14. ChuckmaNorris says

    THANK YOU!!! I'm glad someone sees it my way as well 😀 haha1:32 – Bucket seats are for cars to keep you in place when turning, not when you are using computers and sit still. It is just for aesthetics. Don't get me wrong, I do think they look nice but not for comfort.1:42 – I cross my legs often therefore tried to find a nice, large chair that can support crossing my legs. I bought the Aerocool Project 7 GC1 gaming chair. This is not a bucket seat. It has a high back with side head cushions and large cushion to sit on. (Thought might be like an airplane headrest where you can rest your head on the sides)I can sit cross legged but after 1 year, didn't know you meant to "look after" the PU leather, and it started to crack. Now it really worn with bits of PU leather all over the floor. Now looking for a new seat 🙁 One thing I don't like about some gaming seats, is the recliner. While you can put the back rest down flat horizontal and they say you won't fall, still…while the large large legs and wheels might keep the centre of gravity sort of in the centre, to keep you from falling backwards and wheels rolling forward on floor while that is happening, if you lay flat and nothing happens, the "Feeling" is there that one little move you do such as turn to the side, move up a bit, might then put off the centre of gravity causing you to fall and injure yourself therefore not really lying there comfortably when you got that thought in your head .."is this safe?…my upper body is heavier and centre of gravity is off to the side…am I going to fall? "I had a leather office chair once and that recliner was joined to the seat so when you tilt, it only goes 45 deg and centre of gravity stays in centre so was much more comfortable to relax knowing you won't fall. 🙂

  16. Khola says

    Is there a decent office chair someone could reccomend that has good lumbar support for around £150?

  17. C Nion says

    Its not like people with back and shoulder problems who like to work at a 90° angle with back and shoulder support have much of a choice.There aren't any options available and all of the office chairs have a curvy edge which isn't much comfortable.

  18. enderantics says

    problem 4: racing chair can't drift

  19. Pleptik says

    gaming products aren't more expensive because they are labelled as "gaming" peripherals, its little things like the response time of the keyboard / mouse, the software within it, the materials used to build it etc

  20. Yevgen4000 says

    1:38 lmao i have a dxracer chair and that is my main complaint as i am crossing my legs right now

  21. Cerberus8513 says

    Well they're good for gaming, also why they exist for gaming

  22. PrinzMidas says

    Really a relaxing voice!

  23. Sebi says

    I really hate the side wings of these gaming chairs. They get in the way if you do wider up/down motions with the mouse, and generally feel uncomfortable and restrictive if you sit upright.

  24. FlapzIV says

    honestly the problem is the chair rips way too much

  25. Poptrop says

    I prefer width over height

  26. YUNG says

    What a calming voice. good job on the video sir

  27. Richard Rico says

    I can only assume so many YouTubers have racing chairs because they "look cool"…but seriously its like "oh, look, another YouTuber with a racing chair" It seems like a prerequisite to becoming a streamer.

  28. Dylan says

    Violently snorts gfuel

  29. marsvin55 says

    My favorit chair EVER is the Ikea Långfjäll chair, its superb and eregonomic for me!

  30. MaTTIn says

  31. Bobby Hill says

  34. Salty Kombat says

    Because if you sit down in one long enough the cusion will flatten

  35. judge sim says

    sweat is the biggest problem with a gaming chair. get a mesh office chair if you value comfort and well being over hype

  36. Clent Mendelebar says

    Good god! Why did I just find this video??! It all makes sense, I am almost in regret buying a gaming chair because of these issues.

  37. Nate says

    I have had my gaming chair for 2 years and still very good. Nothing changed about my body, no pains.

  38. testing games lol says

    i sweat about a bucket per day on my gaming chair its so annoying

  39. BlueBlueCrafts says

    The problem with racing gaming chairs is that I have no friends to push them.

  40. SFG says
