Obviously, a combination of joysticks and buttons are a must for anyone hanging out around here.  However, I often see people asking what games use spinners and trackballs or whether these unique controls are worth getting.  We usually do our best to list a few of the best titles but I thought it would be more beneficial to make videos showing practically all of the games that use these controls. 

Of course, if you already have these types of controls on your setup, you can always watch these to discover new games that might interest you. I've posted a few of these before but I am done for now so I figured I would make a new topic with all of them. Anyway, I hope these help.

That's a great idea. Kudos for doing all the work!

I've already found some new stuff that I want to try on my trackball...

I thought I would give this a bump as I've recently added a bunch of new videos.  There is a new playlist for 270-degree steering wheel games (over 100 games) and I've added a few games to most of the other playlists.

This is a bit OT, but can you tell me how you mounted that spinner on the X-Arcade? It's hard to tell from the videos.

edit: I think I figured out you used a TurboTwist 2. Can you also tell me what size wheel you used? :D Thanks!

It's pronounced hacker.

Yeah, I just replaced that top right button with a Turbo Twist 2.  The wheel is the 5" but I would have gone with the 7" if I did it again.  Now I have a larger plastic wheel attached to the 5" now and I like it much better.
