I'm setting up an arcade stick for all four generations of playstations 1-4 but I ran into a problem I'm a button short. On a PS4 that's obvious get rid of share which just causes trouble for me anyway. But for the rest of the systems it will wipe out Select. The only games I remember needing select is the metal gear solid series which I won't play with an arcade stick.

Is there anything I'm missing.

Interesting question. Demon's Souls uses the select button to write messages for other players to read. However, that will soon be moot because the servers are closing in February. =/

I'm guessing there are other gamest that use select, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.

None of this may get in the way of an arcade style set up, but in Battlefield 3 the select button is perhaps only second to R1 for being the most important button in the game. R1 fires, and select "spots" or paints a marker above a target and on the mini-map for your team's awareness.

Many other games use Select to bring up a map, menu, or inventory (Dead Space, Defiance, Borderlands series). Often Select is used to change a selection on a HUD/menu in a game, or a view (Ace Combat series, some racing games/series).

On the plus side, I can't recall any fighting games where select was that important, which may be your intention.

As above, select is often used for a map or option button.

Often as a shortcut. For example, I'm playing Kingdoms of Amalur right now and select brings up the map, but you can press start and select map for the slow way.

Just curious, how are you accomplishing this? Is this a stick that will connect to each system individually?

The last stick I made used the ps360+ PCB to make it compatible across numerous systems including the Xbox one by piggybacking off the Xbox controller.
