controllers have come alone way from the to button controls of the 80s. now most modern controllers have an average of at least 2 sticks and 4 buttons. the shape has also come along way every handle device use to be a box with a wire coming out of the back. now they are wireless and are shaped to conform to your hand. now you can play for hours without the battery dieing or the stick breaking. controls are like cars they only get better.
