Okay, so here’s the thing…
I love fighting games. The characters, the stories (what there are anyways), etc.
But Jesus effin’ Christ do I suck at them. I’m that guy that mostly loses on unranked matches in any given fighting game. I’m that guy that still can’t consistently do hadoukens from the 2P side.
All my life I’ve been using the dpad for fighting games, until SF4 came out. Then I had a date with the HRAP3. It was fun, but I already sucked with the dpad, and I was even worse with the stick. That’s a given for a first time converter, but that meant I sub-scrub! So I sold the HRAP3 and went along my merry way.
But now that SF4 TE Fightsticks are down in price (I can manage to get one from Amazon for like $105 after an ECA membership discount), I hear the sticks calling my name once again.
I’m the type that needs confirmation for obviously stupid decisions lol, so I want you guys to tell me blatantly and straight out. Should I take the plunge again? Or should I just stick to dpad? After all these years I still play pretty pitifully, so I’m obviously not the type that sticks with these games very long…
(and if I do get a stick, would you practice with me lol?)
