"Gotcha" [Arcade Flyer]
via The Arcade Flyer Archive
Have a gander at the first controversial video game: a maze game called Gotcha. The game was controversial for its controls: two pink rubber mound meant to resemble female breasts…

"The bulges were squeezed in order to control the action. This was done because some members of Atari jokingly mentioned that joysticks curiously resembled a phallus. As a result, it was decided to create a "female game" and this game was henceforth referred to as "the boob game" by company staff. Later versions of the cabinet replaced the controls with standard joysticks."—The International Arcade Museum
