How bad are the cheap sticks, the really crappy ones I mean. Do they still give you better character controll then gamepads, or are you just better of playing with a gamepad if you’re not willing to pay 60+ Euro’s on a stick?
I’m asking because I want to try out actually playing fighting games somewhat seriously for a while to see how I like it, but I’m not willing to commit to a 60+ Euro investment for a stick at this time, even if they have great resale value.
My local gameshop has this 40 dollar one for half price. So yeah, it’s probaby one of the crappiest there is. I am willing to go for it though (and save up for a real one if I’m definitly going to be more serious about it) if it still actually DOES trump playing with a gamepad. Even if it barely(!) trumps a gamepad. However of course if it is actually worse then playing with a gamepad, I won’t.
So just to be clear, I’m not asking if the 20 bucks is worth the difference if there is any, I am asking IF there is any (difference in favor of the crappy stick that is).
