Photographer Javier Laspiur has long been a fan of video games and their respective consoles. And so, to pay tribute to the consoles of his past and the memories he made with them, he created a series that takes us on a journey through the consoles of Laspiur’s past and gives us a fascinating ‘time-lapse’ look at how much consoles have changed over the decades.

Aptly titled Controllers, the series covers everything from Teletenis to the PS Vita, pairing the controller or system he’s used with a caption that reveals the year he first played the system. It’s a fun little series that video game nerds in particular will find enjoyable:
