    So, I have a fight stick now.................

    And, I like the feel of it. Have I ever used a fight stick ever? Only once, but it was like 10 years ago. Back then, I didn't care for it, but now, I like it. A lot. My question is this: In terms of the top of the stick, which is better: A cherry top, or a Bat top? I'm thinking about getting a Bat top (even though I just ordered a lime green cherry top). And, I also noticed that a Sanwa octagonal restrictor plate is the best for fight sticks. Has anyone on here played with a fight stick before? What are your thoughts on it? I'm planning on modding it with a new top, and the plate as well. Thanks in advance!

    I've used a fight stick for SF4 but hated it and went back to a controller. It also didn't help than I don't like SF. But when DOA5 comes out I plan on getting a stick for it so I can go pro at that game.

    I plan on playing SSFIV a lot with this stick. That's way I got it. Feels different, but I'm gonna get used to it.

    I bought a SSFIV TE stick for fight games, which is a bit dumb as I rarely play them and don't really enjoy them that much. I figured my kids might get into them someday, so I may as well buy the right tool for the job.

    It cost me a bomb and the thing is solid as a rock. I've also got the cheap fight stick that came with Tekken 6, but it's not a patch on the SSFIV TE.

    I found any sort of quarter, half or full rotational motion significantly easier on a fightstick compared to the the DualShock thumbpad. I had no hope of playing Street Fighter on a DualShock, I can at least get some enjoyment from the arcade fighter genre with a stick.

    I got a Hori Fighting Stick 3. And, one of the main reason's why I got it was because of how easier it is to do moves with the stick rather than a D-pad which results in numbness in my thumbs.

    Dead or Alive is the only fighting game I like/will play. Its one of my favorite games. I want to get elite at the game since I want to write the guide for it when it comes out.

    Its also really handy for bashing people on the head whenever you end up losing a match, sometimes you can't find anything laying around to vent your frustration with but OH wait you already have a stick in you hand!

    This is just one of the many uses for this stick, you can read all about it in the link below.

    I think you're hot, but I know you're not
    Oh, I'm just trying to drink you pretty

    Ok, so my parts for my fight stick arrived! Plus, I've mod it already. I'll post my feedback once I fire up my PS3.

    When I saw the title of the thread, I thought you acquired a stick to beat up people with.

    A controller used in fighting games. Makes it easier for Tekken, Street Fighter, etc.
