Controllers

What would video games be without controllers to control them with? And we're not talking about keyboards here, of course! The first popular controllers were turning knobs that allowed control of Pong paddles. Later, joysticks (made popular by Atari 2600 console) appeared and - you could say - the game was on! The next step in controller development was a mouse. The first prototype was built as early as in the 1960s, but it was the computers like Amiga, Atari ST, Apple or PC that have have introduced it permanently to our homes, and our games.

In this zone, you can also find other, a bit more strange contraptions - like glove controllers, maracas, drums or a fishing rod. When it comes to controllers - the human imagination definitely knows no limits.
