So I have been thoroughly enjoying Persona 4 Ultimax and Dead or Alive 5LR, and I have decided to start looking at fight sticks.

Anyone have any they like?

This is the general consensus from FTG players from Hirose and other arcades in Japan; and I'm sure Moby/AC will agree with me on this.

Sanwa for fighting games (FTG)
Seimitsu for shooting games (STG)
Hori for case. (case is best / parts suck)

Also, I don't like silent parts. I think a switch on a lever & button should be clicky (like a Cherry MX Blue keyboard) providing high auditory/tactile feedback. That being said, this is what I would do:

SPOILER


tl;dr - Buy a Hori and get Sanwa parts. Voila~ happy.gif

PPS: If you're feeling lazy and don't really care, just buy a Madcatz or a Hori for approx. 200 USD. tongue.gif

Nothing to add really, except I would just build my own case, but for most people lacking the tools/etc it's probably better to just buy the Hori case. Good write up Xiao! cool.gif

Unless one would for some reason ( maybe nostalgia? ) prefer US style components in which case the go to would be a self built box, Happ Comps for sticks ( or P360's if you prefer silent sticks ), and Happ concave buttons, but I do digress...

Thnx AC! happy.gif

I've heard a lot of people here in the US like Suzo/Happ's for Cave shooters; but I grew up playing my shmups on nice clicky Seimitsu's, especially the levers. Nothing feels better than the quick & solid short-throw Seimitsu sticks give me.

I heard that the optical/silent Suzo/Happ sticks are real smooth for shooters, but I can't play on anything that doesn't sound like a Cherry Blue. On one of Radiant Silvergun's legendary DVD's taken at Hirose 2nd Floor, they asked one of the shmup'ers why he likes Seimitsu and not the American companies. And he said something along the lines of, 'Would you let an architect design a house without a ruler?'

There are ways of interchanging the spring and other diminutive parts, as Moby's probably familiar with... but why mess with the perfection that's Sanwa; I'd feel naked playing Noel on anything that's not Sanwa. awesome.gif

Man, I haven't played a fighter game in so long, maybe when 3rd strike was the hotness, But I stayed away from that and played the KoF games they had on the other arcade boxes. :3

Love seeing fighting game streams though, so much drama in there, love it.
