    Question Joystick for Ghost recon?? (Due to Disability)
    Hi, I need a joystick to play some shoot em ups i.e Ghost recon, Unreal tournament etc, But i have lost the use of my left hand and would still like to play but i can't make my character move as i need to use the keyboard for movement (left hand) & mouse right hand which is ok, Just wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction!.

    How about this one??

    Logitech Attack 3 Joystick - PC/MAC - USB - Ebuyer

    Cheers

    I think most FPS games would be a bit hard to play with a Joystick, since mouse aiming is such an important part of most games.

    But maybe a mouse that doubles as a keyboard would work?
    Most of the time you only need walk forward and strafe left/right and jump on the keyboard.

    If you had a mouse with enough buttons or keys to allow you to use those, it might be doable.

    I could see something like the MX revolution working for you:
    Use the thumb rocker switches for forward / backward movement, the horizontal axis on the scroll wheel for strafing left / right and the additional scroll wheel on the side for jump and weapon switching.

    Just an idea!

    Thanks for that, Just googled the mouse & it looks good, Didn't think to look for a mouse!, I think most joysticks are geared towards flight sims etc but anything that allows me to play with one hand would be great.

    Cheers
