A gamepad (also called joypad), is a type of game controller held in two hands, where the fingers (especially thumbs) are used to provide input.
Gamepads generally feature a set of buttons handled with the right thumb and a direction controller handled with the left. The direction controller has traditionally been a four-way digital cross (also named a joypad, or alternatively a d-pad), but most modern controllers additionally (or as a substitute) feature one or more analog sticks.
Some common additions to the standard pad include shoulder buttons placed along the edges of the pad, centrally placed start, select, and mode buttons, and an internal motor to provide force feedback.
Gamepads are the primary means of input on all recent video game consoles. Gamepads are also available for personal computers.
