Recently i ordered a Hori Real Arcade Pro stick for the PS2 (PC/PS3 with a converter). For me i prefer Japanese arcade sticks because ive used them more in the last few years due to my vacations to Japan and my use of the Astro Cabs at Club Sega. Yet i grew up on American sticks in the arcades. I was watching a match between John Choi and Afrolegends and John was using a American stick like the OG he is and Afro was using a Hori. It got me thinking what is better.
My question is guys what do you prefer? Square gates vs looser 360 degrees? Convex vs concave? Is it a generational divide that the old school players who grew up in the 90’s arcade scene prefer Happ sticks and today’s players prefer Hori’s? Feel free to discuss? I’m very interested in what you have to say.
Peace and good gaming. :rock:
