For the Atari 800 etc - having the one joystick button was always severely limiting.
Wouldn't it be nice if 2 buttons were available - and programmers made use of it?
The quickest way I'll guess - is to use an existing controller which just plugs in - and that would be
a Sega Genesis/MegaDrive controller.
Are players so miserly that they simply can't be bothered to order a controller - which I'll guess are
easily available via the Internet? Some people will have this controller already ...?
Is it too much to ask - that this option to be available at the start of the game - so that you can choose
which type of controller to use?
This would make a MegaMan styled game to be possible - and to be playable - and make platform games
so much easier - when they feature jump and shoot - and for straight platform games - maybe to have an
extra type of jump available?
I'll guess this kind of discussion has probably taken place in a past thread?
A good reason for the popularity of the NES - would be it's two button controller as standard.
