Gaming Controller Evolution

Below I have posted some really awesome animated gifs that show the evolution of some pretty iconic gaming controllers. Of course each system has had it’s loyal following of die hard fans but I think just about every one of us has played with at least one controller from each of these systems. Many of these images take me back to a great time in gaming and just a great time in life. It’s great to see where we are now, but even more awesome to see where we came from.

Personally I would have like to have seen the Sega controllers in here but I understand these are from companies that are still currently making game systems. Still, Sega was a huge part of my childhood just like I’m sure it was for many of you out there. Nintendo is another one that I really love to see the old school stuff from. Personally I have only owned an original NES and a Nintendo Wii. I Loved and had countless hours of fun with both systems but ended up being more of a Sega and Sony man. So if I go down the list of all my gaming consoles that I’ve owned it would go a little something like this.

  7. Xbox 360
  8. Sony Playstation 3

I’m sure many of you out there can boast way more gaming consoles than myself, but I can say that I had great times with every single one of them, and still continue to have great times with some of them. As always I want to hear from you Nerd Nation. What were some of your favorite gaming systems to play on and do you have a controller that your prefer of all the others?
