I took the next step and bought a genesis joypad, modified it so that one of its button was also up, so i could jump with the button rather than the up direction. And you know what? the Amiga games are soooo much more playable this way. In fact i have achieved my highest scores EVER this way, rather than with a one-buton joystick. It proves to me that playing with a one-button joystick is an unnecessary, frustrating hindrance, rather than a challenge. There's a difference, which I think you confuse: just beacsue a game is hard because the of the limitations of the control mechanism, dosen't make it a test of skill. Indeed its nothing but a source of frustration. But I think nostalgia is clouding people's judgement.
Just because you find a Joypad frustrating it does not mean that WE DO !!.. i find a Joypad EXTREMELY frustrating (i use one for game emulation which includes SNES in the Multiplatform comp on this very website).
Does that make me RIGHT ... NO... its what i PREFER!!.. I AM NOT YOU, CyberDruid is not you! Hungry Horace is not you!, DemonHellraiser is not you! ... we don't all feel the same way, and if we did what a boring world it would be!.. Mario World on the SNES i KNOW is a GREAT game, but its just NOT a platformer i enjoy!
