Video game controllers are electronic input devices used to control video games. Although the gamepad has become the general standard, over the years, video game controllers have been designed in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to fit the games for which they are used.

The first video game controller I used was the Atari 2600 Joystick in the mid 1980s.

When I was a child, I liked to design my own controllers on paper. Looking back, they were ridiculously complex monstrosities because I had no understanding of ergonomics or aesthetics. Of course, this didn't seem to stop some of the professionals who designed controllers either!
