I think joystick nowadays are only used to play Fighting or Beat 'em up games.

I'm not really in this category so I can't really suggest a specific game, but you may look in the gamespot games list.

Flight Simulator X

MechWarrior Series

EDIT : Also try Street Fighter IV, it's an awesome game.

And try to look on some Simulation games..

In the meantime, I'll try to look on some more games for ya.

Flight Simulator X

MechWarrior Series

Pretty much this. You can try other flight (or flight combat) sims. Look into maybe IL-2 Sturmovik for sim/combat. For pure combat, try HAWX. I didn't like HAWX, but many people did so I say look into it first. Mech games are definitely good with joystick. The only thing is that there hasn't been a Mech game in a while so the graphics of the ones available aren't going to be pretty by today's standards (assuming that it's an issue for you).

God, the last game I played with a joystick was Wolf 3D. Think I've still got it sittin in the closet.

Check out Wings of Prey, it's a new ww2 sim (w/arcade mode). Don't look for it on GS though, go to the official site.

The planes in BF1942 and helicopters, jets in BF2 are also pretty fun.

not really a fan of using a joystick for fighting games, and i already played street fighter 4, wasn't impressed. combat flight sims and other stuff is more what im looking for
