I remember that, 15+ years ago (lord, am I that old?) I used to be more comfortable playing on the left side of the screen with characters that have a shoryuken motion.
After abandonning the arcade and playing on pads for many years I ended up getting a couple of decent sticks in the last couple of years and for some reason, I now pull DPs off quicker and easier on the right side and struggle on the left side.
Anyways, this leads me to wonder how many people have a favorite side and how many play the same on both.
In my gameplay, I sometimes try to pull off maneuvers designed to get me on my favorite side, but I have never bothered figuring out my opponent’s “bad side” to try and exploit it (with jump ins, overheads and so forth).
It might be naive for me to ask but do you take this into account or does nobody care?
