The Importance of Joysticks

GameSpy’s Pixel has a new piece entitled Joyriding that discusses the history of joysticks, the importance of them when playing many 2D games, and how to shop for a good one.

I actually enjoyed the write-up a bit and I recommend it for those of you like me who like that arcade feel when playing on their consoles — especially when dealing with 2D fighters and shooters.
