    I had that joystick ages ago. Wonderful choice.

  2. I used to have that stick myself and it was damn good. Im still using my old X36 and sadly i need to replace it soon :/ Although my X36 has outlived the X45 i had.

      Hah, yeah, that seems to be the case, huh? My X45 outlasted my X52 by a mile (the stick at least, throttle was fine). My X36 (which was a gameport model) lasted freaking forever. This is why I kinda didn’t wanna go Saitek again.

    I still have a MS Force Feedback stick collecting dust. I remember it came with Monster Truck Madness (something like that) and being blown away with how aggressive the force feedback is. You really believe you’ve been sideswiped or are driving over railroad tracks. It’s definitely not the polite rumble an Xbox controller gives.

    I’ll have to remember this article when shopping for a new stick in the near future. Any other recommendations in case I can’t find one of these?
