Encountered this image and wanted an excuse to post it, can we have a thread for ridiculous or extremely shitty gaming controllers?

Should obvious novelty peripherals get something of a pass.
Since they are clearly not designed to actually be functional and are instead made specifically for collectors to put in a visual display on a shelf.

Okay, here's the most ridiculous and also coolest controller of all time: the Sega Activator.
It's a ring of sensors that project beams of infrared light to the ceiling; when you move a limb in one of the directions, it breaks the light and it is registered as a button press. So you can control Street Fighter by actually punching and kicking.

In practice it didn't work well because the idea is fucking stupid.

Something that was brought up in another thread >>421342 but bears repeating.
Are a promotional thing for the new Sonic movie that came out

Fluffy controllers are such a fucking bad idea, even if you aren't a filthy fuck with cheeto hands yours still naturally put out sweat and oil.
In no time at all these are gonna be matted and disgusting with the human grime, and its not like you can even just wipe them down like you can with normal smooth plastic controllers.

Shit is fucking nasty.

Why don't gamepads have Turbo/Auto switches anymore.
It was obviously such a vital function.
How can we game without it.

>Why don't gamepads have Turbo/Auto switches anymore.
1. not enough space for every button
2. fewer games would benefit from it. Games either have autofire now to be more accessible, or don't require super fast button mashing.

I mean, in the 16/32-bit era it would help you to fire faster with Megaman or Metal Slug. But with Tomb Raider or Halo, it makes zero difference.

Was the silver bananarang ever actually a thing you could obtain?

Or was it just a proto-type sitting next to the PS3 when it was being shown off in images before release.

Also there were a number of games that were developed specifically for it.

No, modern consoles are PC set top boxes with a custom OS, and the CDI predates even DVD players (arguably the menu controls on the DVD was inspired by the CDI).

>Also there were a number of games that were developed specifically for it.
Yeah and Dragons Lair was ported to DVD as well.

If the Phillips CD-I is not a console why did they later make a proper console-shaped games controller for the system.

They didn't. They just licensed the Gravis PC gamepad (1991).

ROB was a stupid videogame peripheral gimmick.
But on the other hand he got to become a fighter in Smash Bros.
So he could have done worse for himself.

I loved my SNES bazooka.
As a lightgun accessory it is needlessly oversized and awkwardly designed for its purpose but still was the best (So cool it was used as the basis for a plot-important prop in the Mario Bros movie).

The NES Zapper wasn't bad either to be honest.
Better to have one that looks like a sci-fi raygun than a lightgun that is trying too hard to look real and tactical.
