The Matel Power Glove (yes, THAT Power Glove) and the Quickjoy Foot Pedal were its companions when it made its TV debut in 1992 on the second episode of Channel 4's legendary Gamesmaster. However while one of those has drifted into legend and the other been somewhat transformed into a successful peripheral now used with steering wheels worldwide the one I want to talk about today is something I only got to use once and which has drifted into obscurity. Welcome to Control Freaks.
Episode 3 - The Sega Action Chair After Burner 2, one of the games that should've worked with the Chair
The chair was a fun enough item, but like a lot of peripherals around at that time the technology wasn't there to fully realise the idea. Maybe an analog version sometime in the future could work but until then the Action Chair remains a one of a kind item and a true Control Freak.
(Just a quick PS, I wanted to start a new series today on games I'm proud to own but I'm tired and ill so you'll have to wait for that)
