After 30 years or so of videogame history, we've seen any number of ways to connect ourselves with the virtual worlds we love to visit. Dials, knobs, sticks, button pads; we've seen it all. As the games we play have changed and mutated, so has the way we control those games.

Hit the comments with your faves, and any questions you might have for us.
