Benefits of dual analog sticks?

Post by straddle » Thu Feb 13, 2020 2:04 am

I'm currently planning my Circuit Sword CM3 build that I received just before Christmas. I see that some people have install two analog sticks on their build. I never owned an N64 or a PS1 so I'm wondering whether two sticks are beneficial and/or necessary for some games? Can anyone tell me why you would want two analog sticks, and which games they are needed for? Is it worth it? My concern is that it makes the front of the device pretty cluttered.

Ape Escape on Playstation is the only thing I know of that REQUIRES dual analog. For other PSX games like Metal Gear Solid, it's nice to have but not required.

It might also be nice to have for some arcade games like Robotron or Smash TV.
