    There are a few threads that have talked bout controllers and such. So, if this get's merged with one of them, that could be a space saver.

    Got really excited for Skullgirls back when it was brand new, it was only on Xbox 360 and PS3 at the time, and I didn't have either console yet, but my brother had an Xbox. So I just naturally learned how to play fighting games using an Xbox 360 controller, especially since the USB port let me pivot to PC games easily. And I didn't have to learn how to do 360 and 720 inputs on keyboard. Because I still can't do even 360 inputs on keyboard, and I don't know the secret wizard trick to pull it off.

    I use the Keyboard for Fighting games if I play on the PC, mostly using ASDF + the Arrow Keys, it's a little bit like using a arcade controller minus the Joystick.^^

    I tried to play some Games with pad, but the Delay is to high or something, for example I can Perfom the Raging Demon on the Console with the Ps3 Pad without any problems, but if I try that with a Pad on the PC, than it never works for some reason, I have the same probleme with other Fighting Games, using a Pad on the Console works fine, but I get problems if I try the same on the PC.

    Personally, my favorite controller to use is the Rock Candy Xbox 360 controller.

    I've got my trusty 360 Afterglow Controller, though I wish my old USB SNES controller still worked.

    I'm using keyboard atm and it really sucks. I'm starting to get all my muscle memory from playing GGXX on a high level back together while I should be using a new game opportunity to transfer to a fightstick to be able to kick asses in arcades.

    I use a fightpad. I'd rather use the dpad over a stick because it feels more accurate for me.

    I am trying out the beta with several types of controls- an xbox 360 controller, a PS4 controller and also a Hori fightstick that I originally picked up for SFV

    Hey @Tox been a while.
    Anyway to answer this, I prefer keyboard controls. WASD may not be optimal for platforming but for input speed of something that needs 8 directions it is perfect- How fast can you rapidly switch right and left?
    Move It
    (this has not been sped up)

    Also my right hand is always poised over 4 or 5 attack buttons that do not require me to move my fingers off of. Sure beats my thumbs dancing around a standard controller. Though I will say I do have a real life friend that is uber pro at MvC2 (multi championship winner) and he built his own gamepad... and his hand is a work of art over those buttons. Props to those individuals that are THAT dedicated.

    I'm curious as to what the 20% of people who chose 'other' are using. I knew I shouldn't have put other as an option xp

    Has anybody tried the Nintendo Switch pro controller on TFH yet? Apparently you can use it on a PC, although I haven't tried it yet. Might try hooking it up to PC and seeing if it'll work.
