I picked this 15 pin PC arcade stick up at a Goodwill a couple years back NIB, and with the PC controller adapter I got from an AA member, this thing is sweet.

Only games it does not work with are more analog games like Missile Command and Super Breakout. Pac Man, Dig Dug, Joust, and Donkey Kong are all excellent with this stick.

Games that work well with the track ball are Missile Command and Centipede. I have not tried this arcade stick with every game in my collection yet, but those games do not work well with this. Games I have tried that are great with this are Joust, Dig Dug, Ms .Pac Man, Pitfall, Pac Man, Vanguard, Miner 2049er, and Frogger. Basically, anything that needs the four main directions works nicely with this controller. Everything I've thrown at it has been pretty nice except Missile Command and Super Breakout to date.

Cool! I was meaning to say that it might now work with games that would use the track ball. You have listed all the best games. Those would be the ones I would play it with.

Probably really helps your scores?

Impressive joystick. Looks like it would definitely make those games you listed better to play on the 5200!
