In the same way some people think that when you play racing games you should have a wheel, a lot of people play better when it comes to fighting games – if they have an arcade fighting joystick. Now, I never used one, but a lot of my friends play fighting games and use joysticks for those games. According to them its quicker than a controller, its more efficient, and if you need rapid button pressing – the arcade fighting joystick can do it better than a regular old controller. So lets take a look at some of the highest rated joysticks available right now.
