If you’ve been a gamer since the 80s like I have, chances are you’ve witnessed the controller evolution first hand. With so many consoles and game systems over the past few decades, it can be pretty daunting to try and remember all the different ones that have graced a gamer’s palms.

Fortunately, the folks at Pop Chart Lab have released this controller evolution chart which is available for purchase in poster form. The intensely detailed poster maps the family tree of controllers, and I don’t think they’ve missed any single one. From the single button joystick of the Atari 2600 and the two button NES controller to the 17 button Xbox 360 controller, they’re all present and accounted for on the sweet poster. Even weird controllers like light guns and plastic guitars are here!

This controller evolution poster is the perfect purchase for any gamer with an eye for history.
