Re: Analog stick or D-pad?

Oct 28, 2012

I've tried using both. The analogue stick seems to work better but I just can't get used to using it in a fighting game. I grew up with the likes of Street Fighter II on the SNES and using the D-pad for a fighting game is pretty much burned into my brain.

D-pad on PS3 but stick on Vita. For some reason D-pad on Vita's not working well for me like it usually does...

I use the D-pad, i'm trying to save more analog stick wear-and-tear for black ops 2 and the other vast majority of games that utilize them.

The analog stick nowadays is more often the default for gaming. Back in the early PlayStation days there was no analog stick on the controller, so some games defaulted to the d-pad and some had uncommon button combinations compared to today's standards.

 

Usually though I go straight for the analog stick and see how the game works with it. The odd right-moves-left and left-moves-right camera direction of the Ratchet and Clank HD Collection (for example) is not my preference - though, I kept it as is and had to apply that playstyle towards progress.


Im sure there has always been analog sticks for playstation controllers.
