Sorry Denis, but this is bullshit.

This analague sticks on pads are useless. They have a long responive time, because they lacking micro switches. Only useful for newer consoles with 3D games.

No, Damien made this thread name. I hate these stupid polls.

I wanted a "Which games to you play with a stick, which with a pad?" thread.

Hmmm, well the discussion before moving posts was really about joysticks vs gamepads, not specific games that you prefer to play using one or the other so thought the title was more appropriate...

Anyway, I don't mind changing the title. PM me Retro-Nerd

Well, I was going to make one but after the shite I got from Dizzy in the "Sierra" thread I thought it best not too

From all the recent posts it does seem like you want one though so give me a minute

As a side note: you guys are soooo damn hard to please

It's to late to change the thread title, Damien. This is already a joystick vs. joypad war. So you can you do a poll anyway.

I have/use amiga joypads too, but the most amiga games need a lever for accurate and comfortable controls. Aladdin, as an example, works fine with my Sega Mega Drive pad.
