Spanish art director and self-confessed gamer Javier Laspiur paid homage to his beloved hobbie in a photo series titled "Controllers," documenting classic game controllers of the past three decades.
Each photo, placed in a Polaroid-esque frame, showcase the dates Laspiur first played the video consoles, starting with the prehistoric Teletenis, a gadget released in the mid 70s in Spain.
Then off to a lesser known artifact by Casio.
The humble Atari joystick.
The one that needs no introduction whatsoever.
Sega's MasterSystem, aKa 8-bit Heaven.
Nintendo's groundbreaking Game Boy.
Two of Sega's standards, the Mega Drive...
...and the Game Gear.
The all-mighty Super Nintendo.
Its rival, the Sega Mega-CD, home to the controversial "Night Trap." Remember that one?
The last of the fifth generation of video consoles, the Nintendo 64.
And its less superior competitor, the failed Sega Saturn.
Onto the new age with the original Sony Playstation.
The toy-ish Indigo controller from Nintendo GameCube.
The ahead-of-its-time but short-lived Sega Dreamcast, home to "Shenmue," the most expensive video game ever produced upon release in 2000.
The superior PS2.
The original Xbox, by Microsoft.
The always handy pair of PSP...
...and the Nintendo DS.
That annoying Nunchuck and Remote from Nintendo Wii.
The brilliant but costy PS3.
And last but not least, Sony's PS Vita.
