Inverted y and default x!! When I first started playing I hated the inveres and would only use the defaults, but after a while, I just got so used to the inverted y with the default x that it practically drives me crazy using anything but!!

I blame inverting my Y axis on too much Star Fox 64 when I was younger.

What should I answer? default/inverted is a fluid definition - I saw games where default x axis meant that when I push my analog left, camera turned right.

Directional pad: left/right turns player, up/down moves forward or back.

I never understood inverted stuff. Hit left, go right? What is that? I mean if it's a flight simulator it makes sense sorta... but shooters? no.

Imagine there's a stick stuck to the back of someone's head. You push down on the stick, their face turns upward. You push up on the stick, their face turns downward. That's how I see it, at least.

Pretty Creative, I kinda thought of it as yanking on their hair when i was little. For flight simulators I figured it as like a hangglider, like pulling down, turns them up, you're pulling them towards you, but they kindaof just go up... like to tie a rope to the back of a boat, hitting the gas, then flipping over when the rope tugs...

:P Inverted controls definitely more troublesome for some people, and I understand that. I'm really only justifying it because when I was a kid, I didn't know how to change the controls from inverted, so that's what I'm used to now XD

Default. And I really dislike third person games (only one I liked was Resident Evil 4) but when I do, I usually do inverted y.

basically, when (or if) you play games, you know those two little analog sticks on your controller? The left one is usually looking around (press up you look up, down is down, etc...) and the one on the right is moving (go left, right etc...). Some people prefer "inverted" axis, and what that means is when they press the left analog stick up, they look down, or if they press the right analog stick up, they move backwards.

Left is moving, and right is viewing...for me...

I play inverted on both.
I mostly play 3rd person pov games.
Though Portal 2 has messed me up couple of time, being in 1st person, and I'm not really sure which way I play it on there.

It used to be default/default, but one of my AC games got stuck on default x/inverted y for a while and by the time I thought about changing it, I was used to it. Now I just play all my games like that :3
