  Analog stick - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An analog stick, sometimes called thumbstick, often mistakenly referred to as a joystick, is an input device for a controller (often a game controller) that is used for two-dimensional input.
A notable exception of this is Sony's iterations of the DualShock controller, where the D-pad and left analog stick are reversed, probably for reasons of symmetry.
Analog sticks are normally intended to be used with the players' thumbs.

 Sirlin's World of Gaming: Dual Analog Controllers
The right analog stick is great for games that I like to call "1.5 analog," meaning that character movement is on the left analog stick, and camera adjustment is on the right, but the game is designed so that you mostly use the face buttons on the controller and only occasionally move the camera around.
The Advantage stick first came out then, which was awesome, but you soon realized that you had to clamp the damn thing down or spend half your physical resources making sure it won't skid all around your lap or whatever.
The analog stick itself is not surprisingly, the most horrible analog stick I've been subjected to.

 What are 49-way joysticks?
Analog joystick precision usually is around a 256x256 grid, although it can be higher (high quality flight stick) or lower (analog stick on some gamepads).
The williams49 centers with a rubber "spider"; it makes the stick act like it is centered with four strong rubber bands, one in each cardinal direction, and gives it a distinct feel.
As the stick is moved, the sensors are unblocked in sequence the farther from center the stick is moved.

 Gamasutra - Features - "First-Person Control Design for Dual Analog Stick Controllers" Printer Friendly
Typically, the mapping of the two axes of an analog stick to pitch and yaw is done with little thought.
It is assumed that the best approach is to apply movement of the stick in a linearly proportional manner to the change in view angle.
If the player is peeking around the corner and presses forward on the control stick, we pull the player character's body straight in line with the head's position, and the player can carry on as normal.

The right analog stick has recently become a target for the company, seeing how many ways they could use it in their sport games.
Unfortunately, the right analog stick is also used to dive or jump for balls, so you may end up throwing to third after diving to the left.
Again, this is something that is fixed with experience: you learn to simply tap the analog in the diving direction then hold the stick for the base you want to throw to.

 IGN: March Madness 06: The Lockdown Stick
Here is a quick breakdown of how it works: While using your left analog stick to maneuver in front of the dribbler, you press down on the right analog stick to get even closer in an aggressive defensive stance.
Once you've put your body in front of the dribbler, you again use the left analog stick to stay in front of him as he tries to free himself up, all the while holding down on the right analog stick to stay up on him.
The Lockdown Stick can also be used to pressure a shooter away from the ball, denying him a pass with the game on the line.

 Curmudgeon Gamer: Ace Combat and Dual Analog Flight Stick
I can't imagine that there are that many games that could really benefit from a flight stick of this type on the PlayStation or PlayStation 2, except flight games, and I would be surprised if Namco weren't in on the design of the original controller.
Not that it cost a lot to support this old controller, but rather that Namco made their own flight stick which was sold alongside Ace Combat 5.
The dual analog sticks predate the Dual Analog Pad (which predates the Dual Shock), so anything that requires that particular type of controller probably won't work with this stick.
