Angry Birds is considered a casual game, but Super Angry Birds, the Angry Birds USB controller you see above, is pretty hardcore. You can control the pull, the angle, and pull the trigger to shoot your bird. It's even force-feedback, so that you can feel the resistance of the rubber band. The only problem is that you can't use it while riding on the bus.
