For longer than I care to remember, I’ve always wanted a good arcade stick for the fighting games I play (SF 2/3 and Tekken), and after hearing many people on SRK talk about how crappy retail sticks are, I was just convinced that nothing on the market was worth my money.
“SFAC stick rapes my hands” To think I almost bought one.
I’m constantly told to build my own, but I have neither the mechanical know how nor the courage try building a stick on my own without somebody who knows what the hell they’re doing helping me out.
I was thinking of maybe getting a HRAP3 stick cause of it’s glowing review by SDTekken (I don’t trust ign, 1up, or gamespot’s reviews of sticks ever since they all praised X arcade), but from experience at my arcade (where I think they have Japanese parts due to the shape of the stick), I think I prefer the Happ stick because the Jap sticks seem to be too sensitive and I have trouble hitting diagonals.
So, as the title states: Is ANY retail stick worth buying or should I order a custom one?
Also, I’ve been looking for an excuse to get into VF5, and it’s online component for 360 is that excuse, so is there such as thing as universal sticks that work with both 360 and PS3
