Do you know why your fighting game skills are weaksauce? It's because you are playing with a namby-pamby gamepad! Toss that garbage away and build your own custom arcade stick. If you follow the rules and etiquette described in the above video, you'll become the envy of every console jockey around.

This instructional video is brought to you by Woolie and Matt of Fighterpedia, who correctly determined that the best way to inform the masses was to recreate a 50s cigarette commercial. All that is missing is a cameo appearance by Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble.
