I was just wondering, if sticks are so great, but pads are also acceptable, why are normal controllers (Xbox 360 and PS3) considered so much worse?
Also, why do people insist on using D-pads? I hear people complain about the 360 D-pad, but I always used the joystick and never had trouble with it for most commands and combos. That being said, I do still have trouble doing a crouching attack into a shoryuken for example (though I do on the stick as well), and can only do Shoryuken > FADC > Ultra about 50% of the time, but it’s still viable to a point.
So…I’m not going to get defensive, I AM trying to learn using a stick, I’m just wondering why these controllers are almost deemed completely unusable.
