If you are like me, and are wondering what the appeal of this controller is, and exactly why it’s so popular, diving through the comments on forums, It seems to me that the general consensus as to why people are mostly down to drop the $39.99, is due to the retro design which resembles the sega genesis controller, the fact that it features customisable input settings and that a lot of people actually still do play 2-D fighting games or want that specific controller feel when playing the more recently released fighting games such as Tekken or even Mortal Kombat X
