Fight Sticks vs. Fight Pads

     Alright, the Xbox 360 controller for fighting games is absolutely horrific and I'm looking to upgrade. Does anyone here have any experience with either fight sticks or pads, and some recommendations?

     I was leaning towards fight sticks in the beginning, but they're rather pricy and plus I do all of my gaming from a La-Z-Boy. So I don't know how well a stick would work out sitting in my lap. Fight pads look decent enough, but are they truly an upgrade from the basic controller?

I've a Tournament Edition FightStick and it works wonderful for games like Street Fighter III, Super Street Fighter IV, and various other arcade titles like Contra. Expensive too.


I don't have experience with FightPads, but I wouldn't be surprised if they work great too.

Hmm, alright. I'll take a look at some sticks then. Thanks for the opinion. Nice to know that I can use it on other games as well.
