If gaming is what you like to indulge in, then you’re probably going to be spending quite some time doing it. If this sounds like you, then you most likely are in need of a great gaming recliner. There are casual recliners, recliners for the office, and now there are even recliners meant to sit in while you play video games! We made a list of the best gaming recliners to us.




1. X Rocker 51396 Pro Series Recliner

At this moment, this is the most heavily reviewed gaming recliner on Amazon which gives you a sense of how popular this item is. We feel that it is rightfully popular, as its reputation lives up to its name. The X Rocker connects with multiple chairs, comes with two speakers and a radio, RCA stereo outputs, gunstock arms and a pedestal. When it comes to a great gaming experience, using this chair is just that. With this recliner you immerse yourself completely into the game. If you feel that you play video games too much, then this recliner might make it harder to stop!






2. X Rocker 51092 Spider Recliner

When comparing to the first X Rocker reviewed, this chair is honestly not as luxurious. That doesn’t take away anything from the chair because if not for our previous experiences, we’d probably think it’s a decent option and recommend it more enthusiastically. We also aren’t big fans of the design, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you’re looking for a quality recliner but at a generally lower price, this might be the one for you. It comes with two speakers and built in wireless radio, along with vibration motors and swivelling capabilities. It’s just like the 51396 except it went a level lower on the comfort.




3. X Rocker 51259 Pro Gaming Recliner

This chair took audio to another level; it has four output speakers rather than two. It also comes with built in vibration and a wireless radio. We’d say that this recliner is the second best on the list, maybe first (depending on what you’re interested in). Truthfully, we aren’t huge on gaming chairs and after the first two we got a little tired of them so our disclaimer is that this recliner was reviewed after some boredom with a few others. We’ll say that it’s comfortable, lightweight, and has great sound quality, but that’s about it. This chair doesn’t offer much else.




How To Choose A Gaming Recliner

There are plenty of options to choose from. If you can test them out, you definitely should. When choosing a gaming recliner, we suggest thinking about the long term. Chances are if you’re buying a recliner to play video games in, you’re probably going to spend more than just a few hours in this chair. Think about the wear and tear, materials, pricing, comfort, and of course longevity.




If there’s anything you should take away from this reading, it’s that X Rocker is boss when it comes to this kind of stuff but if you’re into gaming chairs at all, you probably already know that. We tested out less than a dozen so our sample size is a bit small, but these three stood out to us. Check out our other recliners here.
