History Of Video Game Controllers By Javier Laspiur

We’re not gonna deny the modern-day video game controller – with its dual thumbsticks, shoulder buttons, triggers, motion sensors, and rumble pads – offers us a plethora of options. It’s just that sometimes, when we get home after a long day at work, we really wouldn’t mind the simplicity of one joy stick and one button.

Whether you grew up on the pioneering Atari 2600 or the unsung Sega Dreamcast, you’ll not doubt enjoy the trip down memory lane with these vivid pictures by photographer Javier Laspiur. It’s not meant as a definitive history (there’s no Xbox 360, for instance), and it looks like Javier maybe listed the years the system was purchased, not the year the system came out, but the overhead shots with the system blurred out in the background are really well done.
