Microsoft and Sony have recently produced two of the finest controllers to ever end up thrown through our television screens in rage, but it’s been a long journey with some awkward moments (Duke, anyone?).

Two GIFs by tech blog GadgetLove show the evolution of both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers. It’s pretty awesome.

WARNING: If you listen to Porter Robinson’s Worlds and stare at them long enough you’ll start to cry. Oh, then one of your coworkers will catch you crying and make fun of you for the rest of the week. Be warned.

I always liked “Controller S” for the original Xbox.

What was your favorite iteration?
