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.
Tonight we'll be discussing the best and worst controllers over the years, and the evolution from joystick to Dpad to motion control and beyond. From the finest triumphs in controller engineering, to the miserable, buttf*cking failures, we're ready to talk shop in the first of several hardware episodes we'll be bringing you this year. Hit the comments with your faves, and any questions you might have for us.
