MechWarrior was a bit of an obsession for me and small group of friends in the mid 90's. It caused a "joystick race" between us, seeing who could get the most elaborate sick and pad with the most functions. My buddy Eric got one that could "twist" so you could articulate your Mech at the torso... I was super jealous.
Now I want to get a joystick life that again because of this video.
Looks like 2017 is shaping up to be a good year.
