1. A game controller adapter for use with a game controller and a display device, the game controller adapter comprising:
a stretchable retention strap;
a controller receiver configured to be removably attachable to the game controller with the stretchable retention strap;
an arm having a first end and a second end, wherein the first end of the arm is pivotably attached to the controller receiver with a first pivot mechanism at a first pivot axis, wherein the first pivot mechanism includes:
one or more conical hubs attached to one of the arm and the controller receiver; and
one or more hub receivers attached to the other of the arm and the controller receiver, wherein each of the one or more hub receivers is configured to receive a respective one of the one or more conical hubs, and wherein the one or more conical hubs are configured to rotate relative to the one or more hub receivers about the first pivot axis;
a device tray pivotably attached to the second end of the arm at a second pivot axis, wherein the device tray is configured for receiving and holding the display device at an adjustable height and an adjustable viewing angle relative to the controller receiver, wherein the height and the viewing angle are adjustable through movement of the arm at the first pivot axis and movement of the device tray at the second pivot axis; and
a locking mechanism attached to the arm, the locking mechanism having a locked position and an unlocked position, wherein the locking mechanism is configured to prevent movement of the arm relative to the controller receiver at the first pivot axis when the locking mechanism is in the locked position, and wherein the locking mechanism is configured to permit movement of the arm relative to the controller receiver at the first pivot axis when the locking mechanism is in the unlocked position.
