Hello there! This is a simple introduction thread about me!
My name is Kim, I am 29 years old and I live in Sweden and I study game development at University of Skövde.
My experience with fighting games
Eight hours of game time pretty much sums it up. If we do not include the few times I played on my Super Nintendo as a kid.
I play on PC with a Xbox360 controller which might not be ideal but I have very little to reference too so I guess I am fine now.
I decided to buy a fighting game two weeks ago since a lot of the game developer students in one of the “clubs” at school also plays fighting games, but also the once I have become friends with in my own class.
So I ended up buying Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition and Skullgirls, I mainly play SFIV though.
Why did I join?
Basically since I am a game developer in the making and also enjoying this new world I am currently exploring. But also to ask questions, one I will ask in this very thread. Also if I decide to try and develop a small fighting game what would be a better place to ask for what is important to the player than a forum like this one?
A single questions
Since I am very new to fighting games I have no clue what is good or bad in the world of arcade sticks, the only thing I know is that it is recommended to have one if I wanna get more serious, so I wonder if anyone can recommend a stick that I can grow with without fear that I will feel that it is a bad one if I ever turn out to become an average or above player. I guess a price range would be good to mention as well, 165€ / 220$ (excluding shipping) is a range I feel comfortable with. With the requirement that the stick should have native support for PC of course, if it match any other console I’ll see it as a bonus.
Feel free to ask anything if there is anything that is unclear or if you would need more info about something.
