Comment Re:What happened to the Joystick? (Score 1) 421

The NES Advantage joystick solved the problem by having a heavy wide base (approx. 6" x 8" or 15cm x 20cm) and a joystick with very little physical resistance to movement. You just put the thing on the floor, table, or your lap and you could use the joystick just like the ones attached to the arcade machines. It was even wedge-shaped so the whole thing tilted towards the player, like the arcade machine. The buttons were big and easy to hit and came with the most wonderful tunable rapid repeat settings. Contra sure was easier with auto-fire at maximum rate...
