If you are a serious gamer, you would know that your gaming chair is a vital part of your setup. Since we put in a lot of hard-working hours into gaming, the level of comfort from our sitting positions would affect our posture and ultimately our focus and energy levels. With a comfortable gaming chair, focus and in-game performance could be prolonged and it could even save you a few trips to the gulag. This list entails the 10 best gaming chairs in Singapore for the year 2020, rated based on the value-for-money, comfort, and durability of the gaming chairs. A good gaming chair would especially make more sense now than ever because we would probably spend the majority of 2020 in quarantine. Looking at the bright side, more time to game I guess! 

Factors to Consider When Buying a Gaming Chair

Before we get into looking at the best gaming chairs, there are a few important factors to consider when buying a gaming chair. You may personally prefer one factor over another, but generally, these are the things gamers would look out for in a chair.

Comfort

When it comes to gaming chairs, comfort would logically be the first thing one would look out for. It would save you a whole lot of backache due to poor posture. For gaming in specific, armrest levels, backrests, and headrests all play a crucial role in the gamer’s comfort. If it is your first time buying a gaming chair, you might even be surprised how comfortable these chairs are made. 

Durability

To determine the value for money of a gaming chair, you would want one that could hold up for a while, at least not one that breaks down easily and has to be replaced in a matter of months. The materials used to make the gaming chair is important as it could contribute to both comfort and durability. Leather surfaces, cold foam padding on the seat, and smooth gliding wheels are some examples of quality aspects that could provide comfort for the long-term.

Customisation Options

A gaming chair should be personal and catered to your own liking. This is very similar to character customizations in games because not everyone would want the default model and at a point in time, you would want to have add-ons that suit your needs and preferences. Since we all have different height and body shapes, customizable options on gaming chairs would also be a point to look out for when choosing a suitable one for yourself.  For example, being able to adjust the height of your armrest to match your table height or being able to lock or swivel your chair at a certain angle.

So now that you know what to look out for in the gaming chairs, it is time to get started on our list!

This unique technology is patented by Vertagear and is an awesome feature especially for those who sweat profusely (me included!).

The DXRacer King Series KS06 definitely sits among the best gaming chairs in Singapore but could cost you a bit because DXRacer chairs are not cheap. However, if your lifestyle involves many hours of gaming or even if you plan to use them for working or studying for long periods, this chair could offer you the comfort you need and would be a great investment.

best gaming chairs

Price: Approximately $410 (converted from Philippines pesos)

Founded in 2009, Fantech is a Filipino company which prides themselves on their design of gaming chairs. The Fantech ALPHA GC-183 is a gem when it comes to comfort and adjustability. It has a thick foam seat which allows for long hours of sitting and also has an adjustable backrest up to 180 degrees, which means you can be literally be lying flat on the chair. However, it is rather similar to Singapore’s Secretlab chairs because of its multi-functional tilt mechanism and its focus on comfort. Thus, it could be a good buy if you are not yet ready to invest that much into a chair, but that being said, it does not come cheap as well. For this price and quality, I would say it is still worth it for what it could offer as its indeed one of the best gaming chairs you can buy in Singapore.

  • Wider 2D Armrests Made For You

Price: $398

Now that we are slowly making our way to the top 3 of this list, here comes the big boys which could really separate the casuals from the pro gamers. 

The Apol Kraken just comes shy of top 3 but don’t sleep on it! It has very similar comfort and features with the top 3 and is often underrated. You could see it has very similar details with our top 2 later on in the list. I have been seeing more and more of the Apol Kraken and judging from online reviews, I would say this often overshadowed chair could be the next big thing.

Highlights:

  • 120kg weight capacity
  • Aluminium alloy base
  • PU Leather cover material

It has a “bucket seat” design which many sports car seats have which keeps your bottom firm in the seat and prevents it from sliding around. Imagine that with a memory foam seat and backrest. Armrests and backrests are also adjustable to suit the gamer’s setup. I would recommend this chair if you want to stay in the zone while feeling like you are in a race car.
