Best Recliner for Gaming

The Homall Gaming Recliner is a rare kind of gamer furniture. It sports the same appearance of a regular recliner but with the comfort of a racing-type gaming chair. While it does not include the same customization of a racer, it does have that homey feeling inside the room.

Pros:
  • Large yet accommodating for everyone
  • Less expensive than most gaming chairs
  • Cool leather
Cons:
  • Limited movement
  • Fixed armrests
  • Not ideal for PC gaming

The Homall Gaming Recliner is pretty much an unorthodox type of recliner; it is by no means an X Rocker nor does it lean to the racing-type chair. Instead, it is a unique twist of traditional recliner with the aesthetics of a gaming atmosphere. The result is a large yet highly-relaxing piece of chair that sits comfortably anywhere in the house. What’s more, the Homall Gaming Chair’s PU leather is rather quite cooler than the more expensive branded reclining office chairs. What it also features are a headrest pillow, a removable lumbar pillow, two loose pockets on both sides, and a feet rest. The backrest can recline to a full 180 degrees if you ever want to sleep. Also, you don’t need to assemble – it is shipped as it is. The Homall Gaming Recliner is best for console gaming.

Best Value Reclining Gaming Chair

We at ICONTROLPAD have always mentioned the Vitesse Gaming Chair for its affordability and functionality. And if you compare to other high-value gaming chairs, this one takes the spotlight. You won’t find any other cheap gaming chair with this much specialty.

Pros:
  • Affordable
  • High-grade materials
  • Comfortable backrest
Cons:
  • Leather warms easily
  • Not that ideal for smaller gamers

Many argue that the Vitesse Gaming Chair is even better than the likes of DXRacer and SecretLabs. Yet, a lot of people think that just because the Vitesse is cheap means it is not that durable; however, that is not the case. In fact, the Vitesse Gaming Chair does most of the things of what a $399 chair does: 180-degree reclining backrest, 3D adjustments and class-3 height adjustment. It is just that the Vitesse Gaming Chair is furnished with standard PU leather and high-density foam but nobody would argue at all since these are the same materials for the more expensive brands. And as a recliner, the Vitesse is a beauty.

Best Massaging Reclining Gaming Chair

The KILLABEE Gaming Chair may look like your generic racing-style seat. However, it comes with one apparent feature that makes it stand out from the rest: the full-massage function. It’s a great chair for when you want to ease up yourself after an intense game.

Pros:
  • Massager
  • Includes feet rest
  • Comfortable pads
Cons:
  • Expensive
  • Leather heats up fast

The KILLABEE Gaming Chair is a killer in ergonomics. While racing-type chairs carry the bain of being overpriced and feeling very uncomfortable, this is not the case for the KILLABEE Gaming Chair. It is a gaming chair and more: a medium-to-large seat that includes a fully-functioning massager and feet rest. No more asking for a masseuse when the chair already does that for you. Sure, the KILLABEE Gaming Chair may not look as outstanding as a Vertagear but its overall functionality and comfort more than make up for that. It is a great chair for when you just want an all-in-one chair that can let you sit on it for hours straight and then relax at the same time. It is a special gaming chair that you should dare not miss out on.

Best Luxury Gaming Recliner

If the name’s implication hasn’t sunk into you yet, the noblechairs ICON series is the best-seller of the brand. Sporting a luxury car seat design, godly materials and astonishing comfort levels that no other ergonomic gaming chair can achieve, the ICON Series is made for you – the icon of the house and the bearer of gaming vanity. It is a gaming chair fit for royalty.

Pros:
  • Posh product
  • Great ergonomics
  • Leather is cool to the touch
Cons:
  • Very Expensive
  • Needs very meticulous maintenance

The ICON series is not the most flexible gaming chair out there, it can only recline down to 135 degrees, but it still has all the fundamentals such as 4D armrests, removable pillows and easy height adjustment.

The noblechairs ICON Series is quite  a large chair; but not to the point where it becomes unwelcoming to smaller gamers. Noblechairs manage to pull one off when it comes to comfort – it is unprecedented as it is convenient.

Noblechairs like to spoil their customers; so much so that they made the assembly easy for anyone who buys their product. Noblechairs ICON Series is as simple as sliding everything in place like a PC starter kit.

Best X Rocker Recliner

Do high ergonomics and low price come together? Rarely. And, fortunately, the X Rocker Pro Series H3 is a prime example. From the looks of it, you may think the X Rocker Pro Series H3 is as expensive noblechairs but in reality, the prices are far from it! The X Rocker Pro Series H3 is an exceptionally good gaming recliner that provides everything you need for console gaming (almost)!

Pros:
  • Lots of features
  • Strong build
  • Made for console gaming
Cons:
  • Leather tends to get warm easily
  • A bit too large for a small room

The X Rocker Pro Series H3 is packed with good features: four surround sound speakers, a powerful subwoofer, vibration motors, total TV and gaming console controls and interconnected controls for multiple chairs. The X Rocker Pro Series H3 is literally a cinematic gaming experience at home. The size is quite large but very welcoming for people of all heights and weights.

Overall, the chair feels quite comfortable enough based on the cushioning alone. However, since it uses PU leather, the chair will start to insulate heat, giving you a very warm seating after succeeding hours of sitting on it. It may also cause your back to sweat.

If it is console gaming you prefer and you need a convenient recliner to make your life easier, look no further than the X Rocker Pro Series H3.

What We Would Buy

We consider any of the chairs in this review the best gaming recliners, but if you’re still struggling to decide these are the chairs we would buy and why. Recliners are not dying anytime soon, and while racing-type chairs are trendier, the spirit of a fully-cushioned reclining chair lives onto the modern gaming furniture today. As such, we elected the Homall Gaming Recliner onto the top spot because, well, this article is about recliners. Ultimately, it is comfortable as it is large. But if you prefer something more inexpensive, the fan-favorite Vitesse Gaming suits you. Although when it comes to high-end luxurious recliners, we cannot help but recommend the noblechairs ICON series – seriously, it is majestic. And lastly, there is the X Rocker-type. For that, we advise that you get the X Rocker Pro Series H3 edition.
