I’m ecstatic! Are you ecstatic?

Cheap retro controllers for PC & iMac amaig mouse

I even still have a memory of using such similar controllers on the old Amigas. I was very young.

Yes, the body of the mouse is that mustardy 80’s beige-type colour. And yes, it is square, but mouse ergonomics was hardly a thing in the 80’s and early 90’s! It clicked, and this could out block, or out-click many on the market in those early days.

Those good old days…

Who needs ergonomics when you have awesomeness instead? Just look at how cool it is!

Look at it… the mushroom beige.

This mouse is the epitome of retro gaming! Ideal for the Graphic Adventure you’ve been meaning to replay!

And yes it does have two mushroom coloured little buttons at the front of the mouse. Again, a simple plug and play mouse in a retro style… for retro gaming!

5 ) Classic / Authentic flight stick for flight simulator games

Didn’t see that coming did you? A flight stick in the category of cheap retro controllers for PC & iMac.

Did you ever play X-Wing or any other cool flight-similar simulator game on the good old MS-DOS?

Do you remember the flight stick you used? I bet it was a 90’s computer beige too. Ours was, with a black stick and red trigger and a small red button on the top. Okay, this flight stick is not some much retro, but it is authentic looking.

It is part of the THRUSTMASTER! Store.

7 ) Logitech game controller – Cross-Generational, Cross Platform

Who has not heard of big name brand Logitech? Well, they make good affordable computer hardware, namely from mice to controllers to say a few!

Did you also know they have claimed to have created this late retro-style gaming controller? 00’s retro, So not all that retro in my opinion, but older nonetheless in it’s style and design.

According to the specifications, you can use this controller on your PC or iMac ( Rasberry Pi? ).

Why not check it out for yourself? But one very favourable review states this.
