    I agree with you that it sucks, but some people like it more AND you don't have to use it.

    I myself hate inverted but I do know many people that play on inverted. Sometimes my friends come over and have to switch up the controls.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't your character turn left if you actually turn left even on inverted?

    I don't know why, but for a couple years I played everything inverted - Batman AA, Borderlands, Bioshock. But then for some reason just went back to playing normally. I think it was something to do with my subconscious swapping up for down and getting used to it. I think games should always have the option to invert the view (with seperate options for first person and third person).

    I couldn't get past the first level of Dark Sector because it wouldn't let me invert the view and I got so disorientated that it gave me motion sickness.

    That's why God invented the toggle for Inverted Controls so we can turn the damn thing off. Praise the Lord!

    I think it's a left-over from the flight sim days.

    Easy fix to your problem: Go to the "Options" menu and select the setting to turn the inverted view off. Problem solved.

    No game will force you to have an inverted camera, so there's no real reason to complain. Just switch it to what you prefer.

    If nobody liked playing with inverted controls, the option wouldn't exist to begin with. And believe me, there are many people that could kick your ass with inverted controls.

    No one was complaining as such, think we all know how to change the controls
    Just it's weird that the option to invert is there

    Ive never met anyone who uses it. I don't even understand why they have inverted controls. Imagine using it for shooters, you'd be spraying bullets all over the place. I have a few mates that can't use the stick on the controller for racing games. They switch it back to the D-pad.

    I switch back and forth from using inverted and normal. I don't always notice I use it either til someone points it out. I remember one time a friend was playing one of my games and he couldn't get used to the camera views. If I play a lot of games with inverted views and leave it that way I'll play it like that for awhile and then suddenly switch back to normal.

    I forgot when it started, but I've played inverted for most of my life.

    However, when inFamous came out, I started the game with regular camera views. I wasn't aware that you can change it under options. So ended up getting use to it, and now I can't play inverted anymore.

    I'm an inverted user. I can't stand normal. Inverted is the proper way to use the stick. Think about aircraft, the controls are inverted. You move the stick forward, you dive (looking down) and pulling stick towards you, you climb (looking up).

    I think it's just a general bitchiness at how crap they are. I'm sure we know how to change our control set-up. Some games, hardly any, still force inverted controls on you at times. I've been playing Bayonetta and I've got to a part where I'm on a rocket. Up and down are inverted and there's nothing I can do to change it, simply stupid.

    But in shooters you're walking around as a hu-man not an aircraft. We move our head up to look up, so the natural thing to do is to push up. It's always disconcerting when inverted controls are set to default, it's counter-intuitive.

    Wouldn't you be able to get used to inverted by playing that for a while or can't you be bothered to do so?

    I never played inverted and don't really care for it but I'm sure there's plenty of people that use it.
