25 Worst Video Game Controllers

Putting together all the horrid controllers from early ’70s and ’80s game consoles, the third party junk that companies created to just make a buck, and the strange goldmine of weird controller ideas that PC manufacturers had, it was nearly impossible to whittle this list down to 25. Still, the Top 25 Worst Video Game Controllers will have to do, because we would be here all day if we included all of gaming’s past mistakes. (GameCube, PC, PS2, PS3, Retro, Xbox, Xbox 360)

It is so awesome to see these controllers and think to yourself "What the HELL were they thinking?".

Surely the people behind these controllers hated video games and tried their best to destroy the market. lol

Seriously, the Atari Jaguar released around the same time the SNES, Genesis and I think PS1(??). Why would they design a controller like that? Why did all the Atari products have to have the number pad? Did they have some sort of deal with the number pad company?

lol this article = no no. For example, the nintendo power glove was made by nintendo just to spark interest and curiosity for what the future of gaming could hold. just think virtual boy, and the now Oculus Rift. Nintendo set these products up pretty good eh, letting the rest work on all the future upgrades to their already introduced ideas (:
Therefore this article list is piled with confusion rather valid points.
