An essential part of the gaming experience, controllers have come a long way since the rigid corded iterations of the past.
Thanks to a new History of Game Controllers video by YouTube channel 4096, we now have an idea of how the gamepads of today came to be. The video proves that through years of refinement and innovation, we are now well past clumsy designs and in the age of game controllers with superb ergonomics and innovative forms.
Currently, the Nintendo Switch’s sleek Joy-Con game controllers serve as the pinnacle of gamepads. Informed by the controller, the Joy-Con furthers the idea of how we play our games providing new avenues of control. Although constantly improving, based on past iterations, game controllers will feature twin analog sticks and four right-side buttons in the foreseeable future.
Check out the History of Game Controllers video above and let us know which console has/had the best gamepad.
