10 of the most extreme controllers EVER

Think your chainsaw controller is badass? These accessories will make you their bitch

Popping off people’s heads and spraying explosive shrapnel everywhere in increasingly realistic first-person shooters can be intensely thrilling, but simply playing these games isn’t stimulating enough for some hardcore gamers. To remedy this, TN Gamescreated a device that simulates what it’s like to be punched, stabbed, shot, gored, eviscerated, exploded, and otherwise bludgeoned with devastating virtual weaponry. The 3rd Space Gaming Vest looks like a flak jacket, and delivers a solid body-pummeling experience when connected to your PC system and used while playing first-person shooters. Oh hell yeah.

Anytime you’re hit in the game while wearing the vest, a small but forceful impact jabs you in one or more of eight possible corresponding regions. It’s all powered by an air compressor. While it doesn’t really hurt, it can be a bit jarring to have your guts violently kneaded like dough any time an opponent shoves a high-powered rocket down your throat. For players who want the full-body experience, an HTX Helmet is in the works. There’s nothing quite like getting shot in the head for fun.

Above: FUN!
