Joystick

Joystick is an input device that is commonly used to control video games. Joysticks have a base and a stick that can be rotated in any direction.

Here the stick can be moved slowly and quickly to different extent in all directions. Some joysticks have sticks that can be rotated to the left and right. Since a joystick provides flexible movements, it provides more control than the keys of a keyboard .

Joysticks has a lot of buttons. Most joysticks have at least one button at the top of the stick and another button for the trigger in the front of the stick.

Many joysticks include other buttons in their base that the user can press with hands which do not guide the stick.

Joysticks are typically connected to the computer via a basic USB or serial port connection and often come with software that allows you to assign the function of each button.

Since joysticks fully emulate the controls of planes and other aircraft, they are best suited for flight simulators and flying action games.

While some gamers use these joysticks for video games, such as first-person shooters and fighting games.
