Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console
Have you gone back and tried that game again? And were you using one (or both) of the two sticks to move in that game, or were you using the directional pad.
The dual shock controllers on the PS2 have a small, easily overlooked button between the two sticks. It has a red light directly above it. If you push that button, the light will switch on and off. When the light is on, you can use the sticks in pressure sensitive mode. For example, if you push the stick a little, your character may walk, but if you push it further in a direction he will run instead. It's used differently in different games. But certain games won't operate unless that feature is either on or off (again, it varies by game).
My guess is that the button was accidentally pressed while you were playing, and suddenly the controller didn't work. But when you switched games, most games will turn the light on when they start up, if they need it, so the problem corrected itself.
