These Japanese gaming chairs aren't great for my setup


But that's because I play most all my games in my home office, sitting in a chair with an HDMI-equipped monitor. These chairs would be great for players who spend most of their gaming time on the floor. Like most Japanese players, the ones not playing Monster Hunter on the train.

That said, if you play your handheld games at home as well, the chair's main mode would be pretty good, keeping your elbows from getting tired while you hack away at giant creatures. Playing normal console games would work too, especially if your TV's elevated off the floor. 

In fact, the whole thing's pretty good for a variety of floor-based relaxation activities. The only concern would be the appearance that you're humping a pillow.

What do you think? Would you sit in such a  monstrosity? Or would you prefer one of those back-friendly kneeling chair things?
