Ridge Racer Used To Have Awesomely Weird Controllers

Racing games and racing controllers go together like peanut butter and jelly and at the peak of its popularity, Ridge Racer was one major racing franchise that pushed the boundaries for racing controllers.

Meet Namco’s NeGcon. A racing controller innovation that’s ahead of its time.

YouTuber Rerez brought the NeGcon back to attention when they released a video that takes a look at he racing controller. The clip gives viewers quite a fascinating insight on how game developers worked around the limitations of early gaming peripherals.
