It might seem a little early for Black Friday gaming chair deals—Black Friday isn't until November 25, 2022—but the holiday bonanza kicks off earlier and earlier every year. Even as we begin November, we're already starting to see retailers rushing to drop prices on the latest and greatest products, including some of our favorite gaming chairs.

Our top pick for the best gaming chair, the Secretlab Titan Evo 2022, is already at a low price for Black Friday right now. This is a chair we absolutely adore, and recommend to anyone, for its excellent construction and clever magnetic features. Starting at $449 /£384, or $539/£434 for the plush SoftWeave version, this is a gaming chair worth investing in.

We here at PC Gamer test a lot of gaming chairs; it's a tough job sitting around all day to get a feel for seat, but someone's got to do it. Seriously, we feel it's an important job. The chair you choose for your desktop setup is so important to keeping you healthy and happy: comfort, durability, and support are the key tenets to making a well-informed purchase.

If you're looking for a chair to fulfil both your working and gaming needs, we're on the lookout for both gaming chairs and office chairs this Black Friday. No doubt the closer we get to Thanksgiving and the sales event, the more deals we'll find. However, that doesn't mean there won't be some cheap deals in the meantime.

We also have our deals bots on the lookout for savings in the sections below, which will update multiple times during a day.

What should I look for in a Black Friday gaming chair deal?

Durability has to be one of the key tenets of any Black Friday gaming chair purchase, as does support. If your bargain purchase starts to expose its metal frame six weeks into life as your gaming throne, and the padding sags depressingly, then you might as well be perched on top of a beer keg for all the support you're getting.

At the very least, you need to make sure that the gaming chair you have your eye on can offer some lumbar support, as well as adjustable arm rests. When you're typing or WASDing at a desk, those elbows need to be raised just so. Neck pillows, or adjustable head rest, are also worthy of your time and money, but you also want to make sure you actually fit too.

It's not always easy to get a bead on a chair's size from an online search, so always check the measurements before dropping a dollar on a new seat. There will be maximum height and weight recommendations for most chairs, and that's absolutely worth paying attention to. 

We recommend only the chairs we feel hit the mark in terms of durability and support.

Do I need a gaming chair or office chair?

Why not one chair that fulfils both roles? There are two ways to go about this, but both are valid.

On the one hand, you look at a pricier office chair, such as the Herman Miller Embody, as both a gaming throne and something for the office. I use this chair at home, and find it offers the comfort for eight hours a day, five days a week, but also allows me to relax into a more comfortable position for gaming in the evenings.

The other option is to buy a premium gaming chair and use that in the office.  Our top pick for a gaming chair in 2022, the Secretlab Titan Evo, is well-suited to such a task. In fact, I also use this in the office. It's ergonomic, comfortable, and it doesn't look too out of place surrounded by bog-standard chairs. At least not in the usual black finish I have. Maybe some would, but who said an office chair shouldn't have personality?

So, yeah, don't feel pigeonholed into one design or the other, so long as whatever you pick is actually ergonomic, well-built, and feels comfy over long sessions.

What size gaming chair do I need?

If you're buying for yourself it can be a tough job knowing which size of gaming chair to get. If you're buying for someone else, it can be even tougher. Generally, we recommend the standard seat size, as there's nothing worse than a cramped bucket seat. These can become uncomfortable over time, and even wear away the fabric at points.

Some brands will offer just a regular and large gaming chair, while others may offer a small as well. These also can correspond to different maximum weights, too, so you might want to consider that. 

Our one piece of advice is to look out for chairs with flat, or relatively flat, seat cushions. We find these are the most comfortable for most people, but especially those of us that sit in unusual positions.

Secretlab Titan Evo 2022 Classic | 4D armrests | $589 $449 at Secretlab (save $140)
This is our pick for the best gaming chair, and you'll know why once you sit in it. Or read our review. As for this specific design, it's one of the more understated of the lot. It's not as sensual to the touch as the Softweave fabric choice, but still boasts immaculately upholstered, premium quality Neo Hybrid Leatherette, and of course fantastic ergonomics. The full price can be a bit deceiving on Secretlab chairs, as we rarely ever see it, but this is still a good deal on a great chair.View Deal
