Atari’s Classic, One-button No-joystick

April 17, 2007

Atari JoystickI am a classic gamer at heart, and I don’t just mean the games made in the 1980s. I’m not opposed to using something better if it’s more suited for the job. Take the Atari joystick, for example. I have used it many times before, and I like the look of it next to my Atari computer or game console, but I don’t particularly like using it. It’s not terribly responsive, prone to wear-and-tear, and uncomfortable to hold. I found the Sega Master System or Sega Genesis gamepads to be vastly more enjoyable. I get the response I want and I can go for hours without those annoying hand and palm cramps.
