This particular chair has a great design that works on distributing the pressure across your back instead of one fixed point.
They made it this way because the distributed pressure is less likely to cause pain, rather than exerting of pressure at one point on your neck, which can cause a great amount of discomfort after a while.
That being said, you can sit in this chair for even as long as 6 hours without any pain. Also, the chair comes with armrests that are adjustable as well as the back that can recline to 180 degrees (with a locking mechanism), to allow you to take a nap in the chair when you feel tired.

The strong steel frame is covered in a thick memory foam type of padding, which provides you with the maximum comfort that will enable you to focus on the game.

For comfort, the headrest pillow is also supplied to this gaming chair model. However, the pillow is smaller than what you may expect. Regardless of that, you can replace it as it is removable.
