Whats better for KOF games? Square or Octagom gate?

My friend said he’s having a hard time using square gate joystick on KOF games but when he switch to octagon gate he can executes moves more easily…anyone else has this problem?

It’s all preference. I mean, you could tell your friend too keep practicing on a square gate and that he will eventually get the hang of it (which would be true), but what’s the point of practicing on a square gate if he can already do it on a octagonal gate?

just try harder
