I had a friend with an Intellivision and when played it, we complained constantly about the lack of joysticks. To try to shut us up he picked up a pair of joysticks that attached to the Intellivision control discs. At first it seemed like a great idea, but if you applied any type of pressure to the sticks they popped off and the game you were playing was pretty much ruined.
It took a very gentle hand to use them, which none of us had and we soon went back to the original controllers and our pointless complaining.
