An early I/O connector that is used to attach a joystick or other video game controller. The legacy game port on a PC is a 15-pin socket; however, this dedicated connector was replaced with USB. See video game controller.


The Orange Socket
The game port on this older PC is the DB-15 orange-colored socket. Today, game controllers plug into the USB port.
