The Evolution of Video Game Controllers in 16 Cool Photos

By Omar Kardoudi on at

Javier Laspiur made this series of pictures showing the evolution of video game controllers throughout history. I played with most of these, even the 1983 Teletenis, and it feels like it was yesterday. It's been quite a journey that's not over yet. I can't wait to see what the future of video games will bring next.

The year at the bottom of each picture is not a reference to when the console was released but to the year when Javier played them for the first time.
