A gamepad is a type of game controller held in two hands, where the left hand controls the direction and the right hand controls the action. Gamepads can be used for a variety of genres, from racing games to role-playing games. The first gamepad was the Nintendo Family Computer GamePad, released in 1985 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The gamepad had a D-pad for directional control and four buttons for action control. The four buttons were labeled 'A', 'B', 'SELECT', and 'START'. The Nintendo 64 controller is an example of a gamepad with an analog stick, which allows for finer control over character movement. Other gamepads may have additional features, such as vibration feedback, wireless connectivity, and built-in memory. Some gamepads are designed for specific gaming consoles, such as the PlayStation 4's DualShock 4 controller or the Xbox One's controller. Others are designed for personal computers and work with a variety of games. The term 'gamepad' can also refer to the physical design of the controller, as well as the software that allows it to function.
