The Atari Space Age joystick is a simplified version of the joystick that Milton Bradley originally developed for the MBX Expansion System, for the TI 99/4A. The original is even nicer: it was a self-centering analog joystick which also had a built-in 360° rotation knob, and it had three top action buttons in addition to the trigger. The MBX joystick is exceedingly rare, but the Atari version seems to be less so: Atari2600.com has them for $12.95 each.

Many (but not all) of the MBX games do not actually require the MBX; you can play them on a stock 99/4A computer, but the features which require an MBX—speech recognition, the 360-degree joystick, and so forth—will be disabled. These games will work in a 99/4A emulator, but at present, the games which require the MBX (such as Championship Baseball) will not.
some of the animated gifs on that page look like they came from an emu. Would love to have one of these in my collection one day
