Nintendo has often played the role of innovator with its control schemes, particularly in more recent times. When not innovating it's been satisfied with simply producing the best controllers of their kind — in the NES and Super NES variants — with the Nintendo 64 starting a trend for curious designs and fresh ideas.

We all have our favourites, whether they have every gadget imaginable like the Wii U GamePad, or simple evolution like the shoulder buttons on the SNES pack-in controller. Animator Chris Koelsch has produced a 25 second video covering the evolution of Nintendo's main home console controllers, with a funky tune keeping it company.

Check it out below and reminisce about your favourites in the comments, if you like.
