The Cruiser Turbo and quickshot pro 2 were the ones for me. Years of playing SWOS finished them both off though unfortunatley, but they were great sticks, especially the cruiser

Atari 2600

But I also got two no-name brands at a computer fair in 1996. They are now so extensively used that the screws on the handle are rusted and the silver word 'joystick' has been worn away. But they work just fine despite all the IK+ abuse.

Microswitched competition pros all the way, baby.

Especially the Star Extra variety with autofire + slomo.

Used to hate and still hate the TAC-2. There's an overrated joystick, if there ever was one. :-)

I have a HotRodSE, which I bought years ago and it's still very responsive. This rocks for MAME32. The XArcade is also good (plus has the added ability over the HotRodSE that it can be used on consoles as well as PCs) but I've heard that it's not as reponsive as the HotRodSE...

For WinUAE and SNES emulators I used an XBox USB 4 x JoyPad adapter. This rocks...

On my C64, then Amiga, I used a Delta 2000...



I remember hating it at first, then loving it....after getting used to it everything else felt crap! I don't think many of the old style joysticks sat naturally in the hand (at least not mine). You had to persevere and get used to them.

I have a Comp. pro for my 500 that performs well, but the only thing i think it faults is in not having suctioncups for fixing in the table, but through all the systems i had, the best controller i had used was the n64 controller. Also i had one in my computer via usb, it's superb, a very well stacked position of buttons.

Man that thing looks like the only joystick with stealth technology. Some sharp angles on it though.

For me it is the Boss joystick. It was first used on the C64, then when I got the 2000 i just moved it over.

Quick Shot Professional QS-130F was my first joystick. Still prefer something in a similiar style, never felt comfortable with smaller joysticks like the Competition Pro. In WinUAE I'm using a Logitech WingMan Interceptor.
