So I am trying to make the transition from using a pad to an arcade stick. What I am wondering is how do people set up the stick? Do most people get a computer chair and a desk, and have the stick on the desk? Or is it common for a chair and just having the stick in your lap?
I noticed last night my right hand, the one pushing the buttons got really sore after 4-5 hours of playing and I think it’s because of the angle it has to rest with the stick on my lap. My wrist bends upward at an angle when I’m playing.
I typically play in my living room which has a couch about 20 feet back from my projector screen and the screen is 10 ft diag so it’s possible I could set something up in front of the couch but I’d like to avoid that as it would clutter up my living room. The couch has a really wide seat so I am considering maybe some sort of upright tray over my lap and having the stick resting/mounted on the tray but I am not convinced this is going to help out on the wrist angle so I just wanted to get some input on what most people do and I felt like this would be the forum for it!
