I’m looking into the Hori Fighting Stick V3 as a way to get me started into fighting games and reviews suggested it’s a solid, affordable stick for those who are rookies looking to get started in fighting games not perfect by any stretch just a nice way to get started, I’m also not a guy who makes a lot of money so I believe this would be perfect for me until I can get more money and get a more better one. I’m a huge fan of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Hd Ver and I believe that a fighting stick will help me pull of moves easier, especially moves like the time stop with I have a lot of trouble pulling off with the controller.
Anyway, I’ve noticed that the stick only has a 6 button layout, not having L1 and L2 buttons with the rest with the buttons. Is this going to put me at a disadvantage in fighting games? Will I flat out not be able to play some fighting games out there because of the lack of the L1 and L2? I like to play games like SSFIVAE, Blazblue, Persona 4 Arena, Tekken Tag 2, UMvC3, GGAC+ and many others, I’m also planning on getting MK9 and Injustice.

I heard the stick isn’t easy to mod, which is fine by me as I have no interest nor knowledge about modding sticks.
Thanks in advance.
