Joysticks & Gamepads
Sure, you can play your piloting games with a couple of arrow keys and the spacebar but if you want some serious airtime, you need a joystick. And keyboards just don't cut it when it comes to flying uppercuts and ninja leaps in all those fighting games. You need a gamepad for that kind of action.
First up is the Wingman Extreme Digital 3D from Logitech. It's a joystick everyone can get a grip on. It'll plug into whatever your computer has - regular joystick plugs or a USB port. There's no need for extra power cables or expensive batteries to get this baby powered up. The only problem is that it's a bit of a workout cuz it's a stiff stick.
For the ultimate in gamepads, snag a Firestorm Dual Power gamepad from Thrustmaster. It has all the bells and whistles you'd expect from a super-powered gamepad and none of the messy extra cables, batteries or problems. You'll find everything from dual force-feedback motors, to a cozy rubber grip that really rocks. And it won't cost an arm and a leg.
