I saw this pretty interesting article about drift that said it's inevitable in all controllers, and it's daft that they aren't designed to make the sticks easy to replace. It would be cool if console makers recognised that and made it easy to swap in new parts.

Yes but then people could... I dunno, hack the controller? And, er, resell it or something? Eh?

Huh, curious. The anecdotal evidence I've seen/heard/read/whatever would suggest that it's basically all left Joy-Cons - certainly I've had two leftie drifters.

Both my lefties drifted - but when it happened with the righties too that was also very annoying as it meant that cameras tended to go in mad directions. (I noticed this particularly in Xenoblade when I would be walking around and the camera decided to drift up and focus on a birds' eye view of Shulk's head.)

I think we have a pair of lefty drifters here too. Oddly they drift in different ways.

In a game like Hades or Animal Crossing, my drift basically stops registering an "Up" command, and the character very slowly limps forward, before suddenly moving normally again.

My girlfriend's drift is pretty much fine during normal play like that, but the moment you go to a menu it'll go absolutely crazy. Pokémon is almost unplayable with her remotes, but completely fine with mine.

Happens to both left and right, although because I use the hori d-pad left joy-con I actually only suffer from drift on the right joy-con (hori sticks are just better it seems)

I saw a video a few years ago that said it seems like a small bit of metal is scraping away the contact underneath the stick which is why it happens to both joycon, I've been really lucky and not had it happen to mine so I reckon for most people it might not be that and is just general dirt and debris that's causing the drift.

I think all of my Switch's problems are because I carry it around in a tight case in handheld mode while living a rugged, adventurous lifestyle.

I've got one dodgy Joycon where it seems to fix right up for a decent length of time with contact cleaner, and one I've given up on. Maybe one's debris and one's scraping.

Yeah it sounds like it & I don't blame folk for just sending them in to be fixed by Nintendo as opening up modern controllers is such a pain in the arse.

Plus with my practical 'skills' I'd probably lose half the opened-up Joy-Con down the back of the sofa.
