NES Advantage Lamp: My Joystick Doesn’t Work!

by Paul Strauss

For those of you who don’t recall, the NES Advantage was the big arcade joystick for the classic 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System. For those of us who grew up in the arcades, these things were so much better than those silly little gamepads. So I can’t decide if it’s awesome or sacrilegious that somebody is turning these classic controllers into lamps.

Given the fact that these controllers are actually pretty easy to come by, I guess that I’m okay with RecycledRetroGear’s gutting of the NES Advantage to turn it into a bedside or desk lamp. There’s not much more to it other than to say that other than the joystick, the rest of the controller is pretty much intact, making this a great addition to any retro gamer’s room.

You can get your hands on the NES Advantage lamp over at Etsy for $20.99 (USD). While you’re over there, be sure to check out some of the other fun recycled gaming bits over on RecycledRetroGear’s shop.
