Whether the origin is Euoroean or American doesn’t matter as much as the fact it is not the Japanese joystick philosophy. The main point is I want a leverage based joystick, with a large neutral zone and helps you avoid unwanted accidental inputs. One that takes large deliberate movements to move.
With a “Japanese style” stick, I have too many accidental diagonals.
Why does it seem like everything I prefer, whether be right-handed joysticks, low lag CRTs, American style joysticks, or the gameplay over graphics mentality on the N64 version of Mortal Kombat Trilogy versus the PlayStation 1, is the minority opinion?
And I swear I’m not trolling or taking an opposite opinion just to show my argumentative skills, like one would at a debate club. I truly believe that this equipment would be better for me and if other people had a chance to use it a decent percentage would prefer it.
I think very few people outside of handicapped people had a vanity joystick (and for handicapped people it’s not a vanity thing, it’s a necessity, as it was for me) made during the Genesis and SNES era.
Some people say silence is consent. if you like things the way they are, you have no reason to complain. When Nintendo says they’ll cancel your warranty if you use an unlicensed joystick, yet the only way you can use a right-handed stick is to use an unlicensed joystick, it sounds like a catch-22.
and the funny thing is Nintendo will allow a sip-and-puff chinstick for kids in the hospital with the NES, but won’t allow right-handed controllers, except one time when, despite Nintendo’s insistence to blocking the controller from a license, Beeshu did get a SuperStick license as well as license for other sticks that were fundamentally not like the NES advantage.
