I remember walking into GameStop this one time in the late 90s and they had this demo kiosk with a Joystick (not pic related, just an example) that would simulate different situations not just through vibration but also by moving the stick around and hardening/loosening the grip, the demo offered a few scenarios that were accompanied by sound (there was no screen involved), like : firing a gun, flying a plane, boxing match, activating some kind of magnetic device, and shifting gears on a car, from what I remember. I believe this was only for PCs.

Does anyone remember this? What was the deal with it? Seemed like a cool idea that would have been better than the shitty rumble that became the standard. I didn't even have a PC back then so I never heard from it again. Did a lot of games support it back then? Is it worth hunting one of them down for the experience?
