for Christmas I’m thinking about purchasing my first arcade fightstick. However I’ve heard about the hitbox lately so I went on their web page to check out the thing. After reading, I tried to reproduce the hitbox sensation with my keyboard, just to imagine how it could be, and this is what I figured :
It would be better for “right-handed-and-really-not-ambidextruous” people like me to have the directions input buttons, wether on a classic fightstick or on the hitbox, on the right. That may seem totally dumb or totally obvious, but this is what I figured, in most fighting games, direction inputs require way more dexterity than the attacks themselves, and for people like me that are completely not able with their left hand, it is really challenging to adapt my left hand to making very fast and precise movements.
I would say that actual classic fightstick are for left handed people. What do you think about this ?
