Ed Semrad Reviews New Joysticks For The NES

When it comes to controllers for the NES, it’s no secret that Ed Semrad of the Milwaukee Journal despises the gamepads that come packaged in with the system. While I’m not a huge fan of them either, I don’t have quite the level of disdain for them as he does. The good news is that he’s finally found what he considers to be a fantastic replacement with the Epyx 500XJ joystick for the NES.
