The Classic Atari Joystick is Back in a Big Way

To this day my fingers still ache thanks to the arthritis (well it might as well be arthritis) I self-attribute to the many hours of joystick jamming to the tune of Atari. I remember some pretty intense finger cramping but I also remember some of the most fun hours I’ve ever spent, which is why I don’t run away screaming like a school girl when I hear about RetroThing’s newest cloned creation, the modernized, but essentially same-old Atari joystick.

Sure, this time around its got USB connectivity and a fancy-shmancy transparent casing with blue LEDs built-in, but the wrist-busting, finger-molding fun remains the same. For $30 you too can return to the days of joystick-thrusting yore.
