Can you tell me what an arcade stick is?

Beautiful woodwork.

Yeah man! Theres a USB port on the back and you can plug them into your PC or Android phone and use it to play games.

Works well with classic shooters like Strikers 1945, basket ball games like NBA Jam and fighting games like Street Fighter and Tekken.

I plug them into my Android splitter and plug that into my TV and we play retro games on my 65" with my custom joysticks.

Kinda feels like I'm a kid an arcade, kinda.. lol.
