First a small intro: I’m a console gamer, looking now to make the transition to arcade, and as such, I’d like to practice using a stick naturally, but when it comes to purchasing one, I have no clue.
I’ve looked through the forums and I’ve read through most of the posts about which parts people like to use, and the various mod guides and suggestions. I also am aware that it’s the general consensus that modding is the way to go.
But what should someone with little experience in a stick be looking for when looking at getting a stick? I know little of the ins and outs of sticks, and when I’ve read through the threads I don’t tend to get a sense of what everything means, only generally what people like and don’t like. (No real system for gauging the qualites of a good stick.)
Preferably I’d like, like prolly a lot of people, not to spend a whole lotta cash if at all possible, and since I’m also quite foriegn to the whole modding thing, preference would be given to something that would not require modding to be good enough, or direction to any and all places where modded sticks could be bought without having to break the bank. (If those are mutually exclusive ideals, than I’d appreciate any advice on what stick would be good to try out for my first mod, that would get the job done.)
(The uses I’d like to be able to get out of the stick would be PC, DC, and PS1/2.)
I apologize if this sort of thread is misplaced, or if I just plain missed a thread that had all the relevant info, but generally the threads I found were about specific pieces, and it was hard to see if my needs mirrored people who were building their own.
