A collection of game controllers from the past 30 years

Sometimes, we forget that the video gaming industry started a long time ago, and we should take our time to learn more about the first generations of gaming consoles and about the gaming history in general. This image collection is entitled Controllers and it was created by Javier Laspiur, a Spanish designer that probably loves games as much as my boyfriend does. By these images, we can conclude that he has seen few joysticks and gamepads in his life. Enjoy!
