Yes, fighting games are generally better on a keyboard than a controller, assuming you are using a mixbox. A mixbox is a combination between a keyboard and an arcade stick.

A mixbox is the logical upgrade so you do not feel incredibly disoriented. You may want to check out our list of the top mixboxes to see which mixbox you like.
