Nintendo Controllers

Nintendo has come a long way in the last 20 years. Check out that nasty, boxlike controller on the left for the original NES, which ripped apart your wrists and drove many a child of the 1980s toward carpal tunnel syndrome, as opposed to the svelte GameCube model, or the futuristic remote-control shape of the Wii controller. Almost every gamer has either worn out their old buttons or slammed a controller into the wall in frustration, leading to a trip to the store to purchase a replacement. It's usually best to stick with the more expensive Nintendo-manufactured devices, but occasionally you'll find a cheaper alternative made by a different company.
