Strictly speaking I don't think you need it at all to have a usable ChucK;
ChucK was fine before we had it.

Personally I'm a big fan of the Joystick HID interface; I find game
controllers to often be very expressive, inspirational in design and
relatively affordable compared to commercial controllers meant for music...
but you don't actually need any to ChucK.

I wouldn't make porting ChucK dependant on a complete HID game device
implementation. The one in ChucK is incomplete as well and doesn't (yet)
support HID output (for things like leds, rumble and force-feedback).

I hope that helps a bit.
