You probably right an 8 year won't be happy with an "office chair" !!

Hi, my son has asked for a gaming chair for his 8th birthday. I've read the previous threads here and I get that most people seem to recommend a decent office chair instead. Many gaming chairs do look pretty uncomfortable to be fair. Thing is, I don't think my 8 year old will appreciate a plain office chair for his birthday present. Can anyone recommend a specific office style gaming chair that would be comfortable (or even a non-gaming office chair with a bit of colour in it). Some level of tilting/ reclining of the back would be a bonus, as he likes to recline back a little when he's gaming. Thanks.

Gaming chairs are basically cheap office chairs upsold at a huge premium; Gamers Nexus has a video on it here, basically it's a $65 chair sold for $300 due to branding:

I remember seeing, in a shop in the Stephens Green Centre, about 15 years ago a gaming chair that was low down, slightly reclined, and had speakers built in, over each shoulder, a "buttkicker" bass speaker under the seat and sockets for connecting headphones and the console.
