So I’ve done some looking around and I’m new enough to Arduino, having only a year of basic knowledge behind me. I have done some research but cant quite seem to find my answer. I am developing an input device, or a game controller, similar to the Wii nunchuck. And to save myself some money and time, planning is everything. So my question to you is, is it possible to develop a game controller using arduino along with extra components, and use it to play an EXISTING game (PS1 emulated games or other basic types) for demonstration? I have looked online and found a few project people have come up with but all they show is numbers on a serial monitor, and no real application use. I’m unaware if there are problems in the way such as drivers, compatibility etc.
I have gone and bought a Game Shield for the Arduino, along with a couple NRF24L01+ modules to implement wireless abilities, as it is a bonus for the final product. Theyre also perfect as they slot right into the game shield.
What do you guys think? I’m confident about making and assembling this project, but I’m unsure about its final use to actually PLAY a game.
