Get a Hori fight stick and replace the buttons with Sanwa butons. I did and I couldn't be happier. My favorite fighting game of all time has got to be the Japanese import of Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter. Theres a speacial character in it called Norimaro, based on the Japanese comedian Noritake Kinashi. Instead of fireballs he throws random things like dolls and pencils and his special move has him doing random stuff like taking pictures and taking a bath. If you press start during the game he'll ask for the opponents autograph. Easily the funniest shit you'll ever see in a fighting game.
