I'm looking for something
I want a USB joystick that is along the lines of the old Quickshots or the old Atari joysticks. Something simple. Everything I have seen you have to move what feels like a foot to move one direction or the other.

Any ideas?

http://www.thinkgeek.com/computing/input/ad0e/ then look at eBay for a Wico Bat joystick. Best Atari/C64 stick out there.

Ummm, the first one isn't a joystick, and the second one isn't USB

It's a converter to convert the old Atari sticks to USB *plus* give you a D-pad. Yeah, it's a bit of a pricey solution, but it works.

Actually, I'd like to track down another Wico Bat myself. Had two, let one of them go when I got rid of my Commodore gear and wouldn't mind having two again.

I see, you plug the old joystick into that.

I still have a couple of my old Quickshots ... I may have to give that a try
