Sin and Punishment Forum  /  N64 Controller Grip?

Hey all! Not even really sure how active this community is, but my buddy showed me this game the other night on N64 and was blown away.... Believe it or not, this is WITHOUT realizing that Sin and Punishment had been added to the Switch Online lineup recently, but in any event, the game was amazing and we thought about submitting a Co-Op run one of these days.

I'm curious, for the N64 players, what controller grip is being used in the community? We played a co-op run where we both on OEM controller and holding it with our Left hand of joystick and Right hand on A+B+C buttons... We read the Wikipedia page after the fact and realized that the game was designed specifically with the intent to have a Left or Right handed option.

So the next day I try some of it out with my right hand on the joystick and its a different vibe, to say the least. On one hand, it almost seems more natural in context of the mechanics of this game... using left hand to maneuver the character and right hand to aim and shoot is somewhat more akin to modern shooters on console... as a SNES runner, having a Dpad on my left hand is slightly less confusing that C buttons on my right... but, as an American kid thats only EVER played on N64 with my left hand on Joystick and right on C buttons, the alternate grip is also disorienting, and I'm not sure what to really think about it LOL.

Im curious if the community has insight to the differences between these setups and if one is more or less preferred!

Really interested in this game, hoping to learn more! Thanks

I just use default, got to be able to aim and shoot ; analog aim + c-button movement is the only way to achieve that.

ty @BostonBrewBostonBrew ! it does feel so much more natural that way. The other way just feels strange lol. I got a Brawler 64 and Hori sitting around too, I may give those a whirl for the fun of it. Thx for the help!
