I havce had the ATK3 joystick made by logitech for about 2 years now and i use itall the time for games, it was a great investment that i made on buying a joystick. I use from games like halo to flight simulator x and is a breez to use, even know i mainly use it for flying games it is still great for games like halo or gears of war. It is totaly righthand lefthand adadible which works great for me couse i often find my self switching hands once in a while. I only bought this from somewhere around 15 to 20 dollers which was great couse most really good joy sticks cost much more than this and aren't even as good as this joystick. I aloso found that couse of te grips on the bottomi don't find my self pinning the base of the joy stick downb in an intense situation trying to keep it in place on my glass computer table. The cord is also long enough to reach anywere about 3 ft away from where it plugs in. This joystick was one of the best things that ive bought and will probly us it for the rest of my gameing life.
