Somebody please explain this to me, cause I’m hearing about it more than ever now.
I’ve heard a lot about it over the years, but with SF4 out now and with a lot of new/casual players getting into SF, I always hear rants/cries about how people that use arcade sticks are at an advantage over pad warriors.
When I was @ work during one of the GameStop tourneys, a good amount of entrants were rejoicing about how “gay arcade stick users” (yes, a few people called them that) we’re barred from competing, and a lot of them heckled at their disappointment when they heard the ruleset.
I’ve also had my fair share of “damn stick user” ragemessages over Xbox Live. What the hell!
As far as I see it, it’s a matter of preference and comfort, not a matter of one os clearly better to use than the other, which is why we have Tekken cabs with PS2 ports. I know a ton of people that destroy others with pads, as well.
Opinion thread go. Do stick users have an advantage over pad users?
