Rack up that high score on a comfy bean bag chair

Do you go just gaga over computer games? Are you always keen to break that high score and often spend hours attempting to progress to the next level? Games can be a fun way to spend an afternoon or make for an entertaining night in, but whenever you play you should endeavour to do so in comfort.
This is where bean bag chairs could prove to be an ideal piece of seating, no matter if you're mad about Mario Kart, love Lara Croft's adventures in the Tomb Raider series or prefer role playing games (RPGs) such as Final Fantasy XIII.
Bean bags could be a perfect item of furniture for gaming enthusiast whether you are playing by yourself or having all your friends and family members over for a Wii party.
If you're spending a few hours sat on a console while sat up in your bedroom then you may want to pick a small bean bag cube to perch on as you play. By sitting yourself on such seating you can be sure your body is in the right frame of mind to take on a boss or try out a new level.
However, if you're having friends over for an evening playing games such as Wii Sports, Guitar Hero or Halo then you may want to bring out a bean bag sofa. By selecting a large bean bag all your friends can cosy up on such comfortable seating as they try to compete with one another to come out on top.
Bean bags are available in a wide variety of styles and materials - so be sure to pick the one that suits you.
You may also want to make sure that the bean bag you select matches your console. The PlayStation3 is available in a sleek black, while the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 mainly come in white and silver respectively. However, as these can be selected in other shades you can be sure that your bean bag matches your console.
Are you a fan of sports games such as Fifa 10, Football Manager or the Pro Evolution Soccer series? If you're re-enacting the fortunes of your favourite side in virtual format, then why not do so while sat on a team-themed bean bag chair?
Seating that features the badges of popular football teams can be selected, so if you're a keen Chelsea, Liverpool or Manchester United supporter for example, you can play as your favourite side on a suitably-styled bean bag.
But sitting on bean bag chairs to play computer games does not just have to be confined to the indoors. If the weather outside is bright and sunny then why not take the gaming action outdoor with a handheld console? You may want to play on modern devices such as the Nintendo DS or PlayStationPortable or kick it old school with a Game Boy.
Whatever type of portable platform you choose, sitting on an outdoor bean bag in the garden could be a great way to spend a couple of hours of gaming while enjoying the fresh air. There are a whole variety of games to choose from - including RPGs, puzzle and platform titles - so sitting on a bean bag in the sun may be an ideal way to get that high score.
However, if you're worried about the weather taking a turn for the worse then you may want to invest in waterproof bean bags. In case of a sudden downpour, you should be sure to get inside quickly - you don't want your console suffering water damage after all. But if your bean bag is splashed with rain, don't worry. A waterproof bean bag will not be damaged by the drizzle and when the weather clears up you could be back playing computer games outdoors before you know it.
No matter whether you play games by yourself or with friends, inside or outdoors, on the latest console or a retro device like a SNES you are sure to find bean bag chairs a comfy way to indulge in your hobby - game on!
