This discussion reminds me of a hack that I sae a while ago.
Somebody built a joystick with two mice..

EDIT: Just wanted to add -- the only people I ever knew back in the 90's that used actual joysticks were those who played stuff like flight sims. I don't remember anyone back then who enjoyed using a joystick for playing stuff like platformers, etc on their PCs.
That was me, too. Back then I tried to play that Mig-29 flight sim with that square IBM-style joystick. The company "CH" made a popular clone of it, if I recall correctly. It was a bit tricky to use, but it worked.
Years later, I think, I got that awesome Gravis gamepad on a flea market (?). As someone who used to play on a NES in his childhood, this item was really fascinating!
A game pad! With Super Nintendo coloured buttons! On DOS! Wow! 😁
However, I ended up playing mainly Commander Keen IV with it..
What I liked most about the Gravis pad, however, was that it respected left handed people.
Not many companies spent so much thought on a product. I think that was a cool move also..
