I only buy chairs I can go sit in first, because I usually find that I have to sit in several before I find one I really like. Unfortunately that does make it hard to find a good chair for cheap, but if you spend any time in front of the computer it's worth it.

I guess you could say it's comfortable/holding up for only $120. He says the sides are pushed in. I am assuming he is talking about the arm rests. He sits on it for hours, every day after school and sometimes all day on the weekends, and don't hear any complaints from him..

so gaming chairs are just office chairs with a bit of color on them?

Gaming chairs are typically designed after car sport seats like Recaro. The better ones recline and have steel frames and better materials.

These ones look like junk to be honest. Like office chairs trying to be cool.

Good ones start at $300 and go up to over $1000.

Dxracer and Clutch Chairz make decent entry level chairs. Noble makes higher end ones.

These BestBuy chairs are made of a fickle faux leather mesh combo. Expect the faux leather to wear and tear, and the mesh itself may come apart and start scratching skin.

Stay away, good gaming chairs cost a few hundred dollars.

I know a lot of us like to shit on 'fake leather' because it peels, etc. and I totally agree - I purchased a cheap office chair from JYSK that started peeling about 4 years into ownership, and it was manageable until now where it's gotten pretty bad - 8 years later and now I'm looking for a new chair. The chair otherwise, mechanically is fine and still extremely comfortable.

So it really depends on how much you can tolerate the peeling. I'd say I definitely got my money's worth if you look at cost of ownership over X years. You can spend $600-700 on a high-quality chair and also keep it for 10+ years, so YMMV.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain.
