    There isn't. The plug may fit into a serial port, but it uses a completely different protocol. You need an adapter.

    genesis controllers aren't serial, there exists schematics to connect it to the parallel port.
    why don't you use a search engine, with just entering "genesis controller pinout" I found this page with a schema and a windows driver :
