Hello there. I am a pretty moderate level fighting game player and I only recently started using a fight stick; A controller seemed pretty suitable up until I got into the higher ranks online. So I went out and purchased myself the Tekken 6 Boxset with Fightstick and I have been working on getting used to it. However, this has brought me to wonder a few things:
What makes fightsticks better than controllers? It seems as though the motions I can do with my thumbs easily are harder to do with my entire hand.
Why do people Mod their fightsticks? Are there any differences between the ‘Hori’ buttons in my Tekken pad than there are in the Madcatz pad?
And if I am going to need to mod my fightstick, what are the best parts and easiest ways to do so? I’ve looked on the boards and online for some definitive answers but all I’ve gotten are noob-unfriendly answers that merely tell me what company may or may not subjectively have superiority over another, and how Convex buttons may be better than Concave. Etc.
Essentially, I just want to know about the use of Fightsticks.
Thank you for your help!
