I have just discovered that my left shoulder button on my DS has ceased to be.

Although a great excuse to buy a new machine it did make me question how many games use the left shoulder button.

I could not think of that many.

When my R button stopped working, I opened up my DS, cleaned it out a little, and tinkered with the button itself, and it ended up working again for another 9 months or so. Maybe try that? Many, many games use the shoulder buttons, haha.

Mario and Sonic at the olympic games both Winter and Summer use L and R.
Mario and luigi 2 and 3 I think uses it too.

Mario Kart uses the L button but you can always use X instead

Thank you kevan.

I lots of very hard blowing later my left should but seems to be okay again.

Like the simplicity of the solution.

I shall continue to find games that uses the left shoulder button, just so I can be prepared for it's likely future return failure.
