Whille shopping for Christmas gifts I came across this all-in-one classic game stick. I'd seen these before, but remained a purist and always passed on them as too expensive considering I had all the games on multiple platforms already.
This time it was $10 so I decided it might be a quick and easy way to easily play some classic games. Who doesn't need a quick Galaga or Dig Dug fix, right?
My 5-year-old son found it and asked what it was and I begn explaining the concept of video games. He seemed interested, but talking didn't do it justice so I plugged it in and Dig Dug became his passion! He's moved on to Wii and PS3, but always wants to play some Galaga or Pole Position with Dad. Great kid, right? :)
Classic Arcade Game Joystick Images
This joystick is battery powered and connects to RCA video-in ports on TVs. It contains 12 arcade games.
It makes playing a classic game as easy as hooking it up with one cable and a set of fresh batteries.
The "quarer slot" acts as a select button - slick!
