14. Atari 2600 Joystick

Pros: Although not the first gaming controller, this is still considered the Dolemite of home console joysticks. And it kept going for years, well after you tried figuring out what the hell you were supposed to do in E.T..
Cons: Well, it only had one button. But who cares? All you were doing was just shooting little blocks that might have been tanks and exploded with the sound of a dial-up modem connecting.
