i decided into purchasing a arcade stick Hori's Real Arcade Pro 3 SA
but my friend came to my house with a button box... yeah sounds weird no stick just 3 buttons to move on the left side. and the 9 in the other side with the other direction in that side bottom for your thumb.
i was playing with it for few miinutes it was so akward, after i got the hint it felt that its more precise than a arcade stick,also after trying it for few minutes i notice that its super fast i didnt take no time to do hadoukens or hyper it was like moving the stick to the side and preparing to do QCF in my own arcade stick but the whole secuence was done in the button box , also i notice that i was able to quick dash and double triple jump way easier and much more faster because i wasnt really moving my hands, just my fingers.
well my question is that button box better than a fighting stick? or it was just me ( i had the arcade stick for a day and a half , and played it alot , the button box i tried for 2 hours with my friend and felt that its easier to do moves/dash/block
also do you think i should return mines and purcahse one of those button boxes? i paid 200 and my friend said he will take 200 for his box
