Do you Invert?

   0
As far back as I can remember, all the way back to when analog sticks and joy sticks were introduced to me in the video gaming world, I have always felt compelled to invert my Y-axis (vertical) settings in order to play and I don’t know why.





I invert the Y-axis in 3rd person games as well as in FPS games as it just feels right. I think that I have figured out the simplest way for me to try to explain “why” I invert .

Y-axis:
If I was physically holding a gun and I wanted to aim upward, I would have to lower my right hand and if I wanted to aim down I would have to raise my right hand up. This translates in my mind to moving my thumb down in FPS game to aim up and moving my thumb up for aiming down. This may only make sense in my mind but it is hard to explain why you invert when people’s retort is “up is up and down is down, your weird”

Do you invert?
