Are you looking for a gaming chair for your son but are having difficulty finding one? In this guide, we will help you find a good gaming chair for your son, and we will have different price points that will fit your budget.
Whether your son is addicted to League of Legends, Rocket League, or moving off to college, you should make sure he is sitting with good posture, so he doesn’t get back pain or in worse case scenarios, a back injury.
Your son would LOVE a DXRacer chair. They are super popular because streamers use them and popular YouTubers use them as well. If you get your son a DXRacer chair, you can be sure he’ll feel appreciated since he will be like the YouTubers and streamers he watches. It’ll be instantly recognizable.
DXRacer chairs are built to last with high-quality materials which make them very sturdy and stain resistant.
For long term gaming, DXRacer chairs are very comfortable with amazing recline abilities. Depending on your son’s size and weight, you might need to use our DXRacer gaming chair guide to get the right fit. However, if your son is under 5’9” and somewhere under 200 LBs, the DXRacer Origin model should be fine.
The DXRacer brand is just fun, with multiple color options, and cool features. However, they are a bit pricy, so if you want something cheaper, consider our next chair, the Furmax Gaming Chair.
The Furmax Gaming Chair is sort of like a DXRacer “light.” It’s got good features like an adjustable tilt, and arms that can swivel out of the way–as well as a cool “gaming bucket seat chair” design. I love the look of this chair, and the lighter weight and cost make it an easier investment to look into.
If you want to get your son something a bit more professional looking, but still be a good chair for gaming, check out the HON Basyx Chair. This is one of my favorite ergonomic gaming chairs that is affordable since it has a great simplistic design but still has good features that make it customizable for a variety of heights and weights.
You can adjust how far the seat goes in and out, adjust the arms up/down as well as side to side, and you can adjust the lumbar support, height of the chair, and the back tension. If you think your son would like a more “practical gaming chair” this is a GREAT pick.

If you have a budget somewhere around $100, this is a good simple chair that would be a good fit since it’s easy to pick up and move to college.
It isn’t exactly a “gaming chair, ” but since it has a good number of adjustments as well as decent back support, it could be a good chair for a younger gamer or one who only sits in a chair for a few hours of day to do homework or play some casual games with friends.
Finally, if you are a bit wealthy, or want to buy your son a chair that will last for 10+ years, then consider buying the expensive (but worth it) Steelcase Leap. This is a MASTERFUL ergonomic office/gaming chair that can be adjusted in almost any fashion.
The Leap’s innovative back design is heaven for gamers with back pain, and if you think your son has any drive to be a game designer or programmer, or work from home, I would buy this chair in a heartbeat. This is my MAIN chair that I spent 8+ hours a day working in writing articles like these to help you find chairs!

#6 Alera Chair
The Alera Chair might not look incredibly cool, but it’s affordable and very comfortable as well as adjustable. So whether your son is a bit chunky, or super skinny, or maybe very tall–this budget ergonomic chair for your son could be an amazing fit.
The Alera chair is a brilliant chair since it has a multifunction mechanism that lets you tilt, lock positions, adjustable arms, and the seat even has a waterfall edge that reduces pressure on your legs.
You can find features like these in most chairs this range. It even has a mesh back to keep you cool. Basically, a lot of people call this the poor man’s Aeron, and I find that to be mostly true.
