This was really the first joystick to be ergonomically engineered, and the results are impressive. The Epyx 500 is the joystick equivalent of a Ferrari! It molds perfectly to most hands, and the fire button is accessed by the index finger. This design is ideal for most games, but less ideal for those that require constant button tapping. The joystick is perfectly sized, and its switches provide proper tactile and audio feedback.
