The Atari 2600 Joystick...
it may not have micro-switched... (saves on noise)... it may be small.... (saves on space) may only have one button... (how many amiga games use 2 even though they could?)
it is all those things, but what it also is... a legend!!! a true survivior.... Joysticks and joypads have come and gone many times over between me and my bro... but only ONE stood the test of time (since 1981) and I still have it... it is STILL fully functional!!!
I seriously doubt I could say the same for any joystick today being able to put up with that kind of punnishment!
