Recommend me a Joypad

After using a psx controller/ms sidewinder for so long.. i'm finding it difficult to go back to a Zipstick (don't laugh its NOT FUNNY), so..

I would suggest a Sega Genesis joypad. Although they have a lot of useless buttons on there, for the most part, they work well, and you should be able to find them for fairly cheap. I wouldn't go with the original genesis controller though, but a replacement brand, as the buttons tend to wear out quickly on the originals.

Or you could get a Competition PRO CD32 joypad (the original cd32 joypads are kinda cheap), but you'll probably spend out your nose for one.

strangely... Turrican plays alot better with a zipstick (rather than a Sidewinder via emulation on PC)
