They are really good for arcade games. For console games a regular controller might work better. Either an Xbox controller or one of these http://www.retrousb.com/index.php?cP...c0ff6a323029ae
They are pretty big. Before you buy one you should think about where you are going to put it. Just setting it in your lap or on your desk might not be comfortable. It might not even be possible.
But if you like arcade games, have the space/set up, and the money then I would get one.
With this weekends sale the biggest one is $150 - normally $200. It has two arcade sticks plus a trackball for Marble Madness type games.
The regular one is $130 - no sale. It is two arcade sticks - no trackball.
And the small one is $80 - regular price $100. It is a single arcade stick.
