Javier Laspiur made this series of pictures showing the evolution of video game controllers throughout history. We can honestly say that we haven’t played with the first set of game controllers as shown on the pictures, but we do remember from Sega onwards.

In case you didn’t know, 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.

This is really an awesome ‘timeline’ because it shows us how these game controllers evolved and where we’re heading to.
