I always used the Atari 2600 joysticks with the C64. I remember playing Spy Hunter and it had a special plastic controller holder so you could use two joysticks and be able to press both buttons with the left hand.

You should always use Port 2, because joysticks plugged into Port 1 could interfere with the command line interface. Some people thought this port was plugging a second joystick for two player games, however, this port became the default after a while.
