Where are most people now in the games community?

It has been 2 or 3 years since I played SF4 (PC). And after playing some old tekken games, I decided to order a mayflash arcade stick and see what an arcade stick feels like in different fighting games. But if I ever decide to move on to multiplayer, do the masses, in general, still play plain SF4 (PC) as opposed to, say SSS4 for ps3? How does the tekken/MK/SNK/SoulCalibur crowd compare to the SF crowd in terms of their latest respective games?

    1) You're gonna end up having to mod or even return that Mayflash stick you ordered since it's a sub par stick with bad and loose parts and buttons. Get a Qanba or Hori
    2) I'm pretty sure people still play Vanilla. I think AE came out for the PC, but why play online?
    3) There are no consistent statistics as to how many people play the game competitively/size of the crowd of people that play the game. If you like the game, just play it. Don't base it off numbers of people who play a game. Tekken, MK, KOF are pretty huge at the moment so i'd suggest you start with the regional matchmaking forums in SRK and find some near by tournaments to get started or better yet people to play offline with iff you're just looking to play with someone or to get better. There are other forums that may be just as/a lot more helpful for non-capcom related games than SRK for match making/finding offline competition.
    4) There are stick tutorials and videos on how to get used to the stick if you are having difficulties at first adjusting to them.

    Good luck.

    why, is the mayflash stick so bad that a gamepad is better? I got it because it's cheap and I've never used a stick before. And I'm not going to play in tourneys or against people IRL. Just random online matchmaking.

    Oh ok.

    Just from experience. I bought a Mayflash and turnedo ut to be pretty ass. Tried modding it and fucked it up in the end because I suck at soldering T_T. But people usually get it right.

    My mayflash stick arrived and I tried it out. I have no complaints about the buttons. But I did notice the stick is slightly loose and turns freely like its unscrewed. Is a stick supposed to be like that?

    yea. ppl say it's bad because they've had better. But if you don't have any difficult combos or execution requirements then I suppose it should suffice.
    ......im sure it's been stated already; but you niggas gay. If you wouldn't hit that, you are riding some black cock right now.

    How long does it take to learn to do shoryukens with an arcade stick? Because I have extreme difficulty with those on a stick. But I can do them on a pad or keyboard most of the time. I also have some trouble executing moves that involve double-tapping a directional when I play Soul Calibur games, but not with Tekken games. Although I'm finding it next to impossible to execute any quarter-circle movements in Tekken games, though not quite as much in Street Fighter. Guess I just need to give it some time.

    I recommend doing each individual direction of the SRK motion slowly. Pay close attention to how your hands moves inside of the square gate. Same thing with quarter-circles except that you should not be riding the gate to complete the motion. Instead, pretend that the corner on the square gate does not even exist so that you roll from down to forward in a parabolic curve. Start slowly, then gradually pick up speed.

    Don't forget to turn on input display in training mode. Make sure you are consistently hitting the directions and ONLY the directions in the motion.
