Trivia

Controversy

Gotcha holds the title of the very first controversial video game. While later cabinets featured joystick controls, the first model was controlled by large pink rubber mounds. They were replaced by the joysticks because they reportedly looked like breasts. The game's flyer, which featured a photograph of a man grabbing a woman with visible cleavage around the waist, did not help matters. According to an Atari employee, the resemblance was intentional, saying that they were specifically designed to look like a female body part after someone joked that joysticks were phallic in appearance.
