24. The NES Zapper

Probably the best known unconventional controller, the Zapper is a light gun that was bundled with the launch of the NES in America. How many of us grew up trying to shoot that damned dog in Duck Hunt? How many of us discovered that you could actually walk right up to the TV screen and shoot the ducks with unerring accuracy? In either original gray or the later toy gun orange, the Zapper is all classic.
