Absolutely, but make that _three_ buttons.
It would be completely masochistic nowadays to stick to one button joysticks when the machine supports three and MD pads are available which the Amiga can support all six buttons with the aid of a super cheap adapter (and yet unavailable support code in WHDLoad which I offered to write but nobody wants apparently).

Poor souls... Even in 1989 this was a sad sight.

Ninja Warriors and Final Fight have proven that streaming makes this possible even with floppies without loading time. Beat em ups are perfect for streaming.
