This is cool :: Damien Lopez :: A History of Game Controllers

Damien Lopez : A History of Game Controllers (thanks to

I thought this was cool...
This is a collection of small multiples of game controllers of the main gaming systems from the past 25 years, spanning from the Atari 2600 to the Nintendo Wii. The images have been normalized, and the hands are all approximately the same size as each other, and thus the controllers all to scale.
OK... quick quiz... what did you / do you have? This is what we (as in the Mathie family) have had and still have:
  • Sega Master System
  • Sega Genesis aka Megadrive
  • Sony Playstation
  • Sony Playstation 2
  • Wii
  • Nintendo Gameboy
  • Nintendo Gameboy Colour
  • Nintendo Gameboy Advance
  • Nintendo GBA SP
  • Sony Playstation Portable
  • Nintendo DS Lite
That's a lot of money... a lot of time... and a lot of fun. Beats watching TV though!!!
