You play a computer game; you play it with either a controller or with a keyboard and mouse possibly if you’re on the PC. This is the tradition; so long you’re not throwing a Wiimote or your limbs near a Kinect of course.
The game controller is not only a vital part when playing computer games but in some cases it can become an icon in its own right. Think of the amount of merchandise which has been created based on the design of the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controller or the Sony Playstation controller which has changed little in terms of basic design after three generations of consoles.
Over the past few decades we have seen both console makers and third party organisations come up with curios and varied designs for controllers to give players a new and in theory “enhanced” way to play our games.
Many of these ambitious or unorthodox approaches have seen the creation of controllers which can be best described as infamous, absurd or just downright bizarre.
In recognition Gaming Kick has compiled thirty of the most bizarre computer game controllers ever sold on markets worldwide.
