WTB: Stick Suitable for Classic Games

I’m looking to buy an arcade stick suitable for playing classic games like Donkey Kong, Galaga, and Ms. Pacman. I already own a Madcatz SF IV TE stick for fighting games, but this just doesn’t cut it for classic titles. I’m looking to buy a separate controller that offers arcade quality 4-way control.

I’m open to sticks that work with either the Xbox 360, Wii, or Mac via USB. Also, it doesn’t even have to be a full arcade stick. I’m also open to options like this or this. At least two buttons would be ideal, as would easy access to switching between 2-way and 4-way operation, if available.

You try turning the restrictor plate on your jlf to 4 way?

Hit up these guys for sticks more geared for classic gaming:



This is an improvement but you can still hit diagonals. Not to mention it’s a bit cumbersome to disassemble the stick every time I want to switch between 4-way and 8-way control.

Thanks for this suggestion! Exactly what I’m looking for.
