Side-Quest 147. R.O.B. With A Chainsaw

The Topic

What are some of the most notable controllers in gaming history? How have controllers evolved from the days of the joystick to the days of the dual analog sticks? What are some of the weirder controllers or console add-ons in gaming history? Why is the DualShock 4 the ideal controller (to me, Emma)? 

The Actual Discussion

We go through a brief history of controller evolution. We appreciate the Sega Round Boy (not its official name). There’s a clear consolidation of design that begins with the original DualShock, and we speculate about the reasons for that. We also talk about some highlights (or lowlights) in the history of controllers. What’s a Labo anyway?

Enjoy the episode! Tell us what you think in the comments or on social media. Make sure to check out last week’s episode and look forward to next week’s where we’re talking about Age of Empires and We Are OFK.
