joysticks with built in games

joysticks with built in games (sorry i dont know what the correct term is). I have heard that there is a Sensible Soccer one and lots of other different ones. i found a Commodore 64 one. Are there any with other built in games for the amiga like Flashback, Another world and Hunter?

On an unrelated subject. Does anyone know where i can get a PSU for a CD32 without going through ebay.


Thank you.

Both games were released on SNES and Megadrive/Genesis and were playable with gamepad...

A lot of games are quite poor when using a pad over a mouse!

THe precision and speed a mouse gives is so much better than any pad (analogue or digital!)

I'm surprised modern day pads don't come with some sort of trackball/mouse feature built into them.. Would make some games much easier

I believe that SNES had optional mouse, but I never seen or used one. Also I am not sure if the games did support it.

I tried Civilization on SNES with gamepad, and it takes some time to get used to it.

But consoles were great for platform games where multiple buttons made different experience with the game. Games such as Flashback, The Lost Vikings etc. were much more playable with consoles. It was nice to have Sega MD/Genesis controller with miggy, but still only two buttons worked for some games.

Yes it was better when games shipped with support for the CD32 pad (Roadkill etc)
