Since the dawn of time, left-handed video game players have been what’s commonly referred to as SOL. In more enlightened times, a special controller for the left-handed would have been standard procedure, but it’s taken until relatively recently for it to be a consideration.

The Goofy Foot NES Controller essentially looks like a standard NES controller that’s been flipped in the mirror, to the advantage of southpaws and right-brained individuals everywhere. It’s compatible with the original Nintendo Entertainment System and any other NES clone with a standard controller port, so ambidextrous fairness across players can now finally be achieved.
