The original Sega Dreamcast arcade stick are impossible to find and they are not in production anymore.

I think my friends have the second one, or one very similar to it and they like it a lot. Their's are plain beige/white tho.

They are both ugly but these are the few remaining left that are still in production. DC controllers suck for *FIGHTING GAMES*.

I guess the first one looks better, but the second seems like it plays better.

For those of you who said "neither", which other controller do you recommend for fighting games?

Try X-arcade or Mas Systems.


Personally, I built mine myself and got it to run on multiple platforms.

Edit:
The problem with all plastic sticks like that are that the buttons are the thing that gives them the name "stick". You'll spend more time beating the controller with your fist than beating your opponent.

These cheapo arcade controls will break very easily.
X-arcade if you don't have the time to build one yourself.
I built mine because I wanted a layout that fits me best.

If you are going to get a fighting stick for the dreamcast, get yourself either the Sega Arcade stick, or the ASCII Fighting stick. If you want something that'll work on your PC, PS2, DC, etc, get an XArcade stick with adapters. I've played A LOT of fighting games and those are the only two sticks I would recommend, specifically, for the Dreamcast.
