Whether you're a hardcore PC gamer, or just playing the new Nintendo Switch OLED Model, you need the right chair. Gaming chairs typically offer more cushioning, more neck and lumbar support, and are more adjustable than standard office chairs. So much so, in fact, that many people prefer gaming chairs to office chairs even when they're doing light work at the computer. (Gaming chairs are also really cool-looking, compared with oft-boring office chairs.)

Looking to improve your game -- or your sitting situation? Or just looking for a great holiday gift for the gamer in your life? The gaming chair options ahead from Amazon, Staples, Wayfair and more, all under $200, won't break the bank.
