thats because it simulate plane flying controls. you pull back to go up and push forward to go down

Yeah, same. I dunno why, but I reflexively invert when flying. When games use the same controls for flying and infantry it just drives me crazy ( **** you Arma II)

Just change your control scheme man

The same argument would leave me to believe that you also invert the x-axis. ******* **** lords.

If this is the case why don't you invert the horizontal axis when aiming as well?

I play inverted because the first couple of games I played were flying games.

If you play with inverted controls I hate you and will never trust you.

Friends don let friends use inverted

If you've been playing since the early 90's, inverted is the only you know how to play.

Oh, leave the poor fool alone. Just because he did not decide to go with the vastly superior control scheme.... yea, i can't finish that sentence. Seriously, I don't understand why inverted is such a hard concept. It just makes more sense, you are sitting behind the characters vision, up is like pushing on the back of his head, it should go down.
#119 to #30 - wtfduud ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
I see a lot of people use "your" instead of "you're", but I've never seen anyone make the inverse (hue) mistake.

Steam Controller Demonstration It's a pretty good controller. Though very oddly shaped

I wanted to make dark souls inverted on my controller, but apparently it only has options for keybinding since it bought it for pc. This is my first time with a controller. I keep trying to synch movement and camera, but **** it up since up is down and down is up.. Oh why did i think that dark souls was an appropriate learning ground for controllers.. I will never figure this out

You have to be funny and entertain FJ if you are going to **** post on the top comment...

Smartwon obviously wanted some thumb reaffirmation for his "intelligent and original" comment. Good thing he reminded us that Dinkleberg is the dastardly neighbor who is the root of all Timmy's Dad's problems. I can totally relate because I watched the show at one time in my life so I'll thumb up his comment to let him know I got his joke and that it was worth the *********** on the top comment.

It causes problems at get togethers. Example : passing the controller around while playing a shooter 2 out of 5 play inverted

Fixed.    
   
I didn't export it as an animation at first and sat there looking at a picture waiting for it to move. So smart.

I miss the days when the console wars were fun and SEGA made the argument that their Disney style cartoon mascot had more street cred than Nintendo's Disney style cartoon mascot because he was drawn to look flippant.

Playing a console game with inverted, that i understand, some people find that more comfortable, but, i **** you not, i have a friend who plays PC games with inverted.
User avatar #89 to #68 - CrucifiedPuppy (10/20/2013) [-]
What's wrong with playing PC games inverted?
User avatar #104 to #89 - vapaus (10/20/2013) [-]
Normal people set up their mice so that moving it forward moves the display up. Considering their constant use of this mechanic and associating forward with up and back as down, to then play a game in which you reverse that idea when the mechanic is almost exactly identical makes the transition even more perplexing.

My brother can't stand it when the controls aren't default inverted for flying.
User avatar #17 to #14 - bowmasta (10/20/2013) [-]
I'm the same way.
User avatar #18 to #17 - sladee ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
it feels so unnatural unless it's helicopters
User avatar #19 to #18 - bowmasta (10/20/2013) [-]
I like my controls to mimic actual aircraft controls.
User avatar #20 to #19 - sladee ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
i don't know but it feels right with airplanes but with helicopters it feels weird

Flying wise I prefer inverted.


FPS wise I prefer normal.
#130 - porksammich (10/20/2013) [-]
I prefer inverted controls due to Donkey Kong 64's first-person controls. And it made shooting switches easier.

I can play both normal and inverted    
 i am prepared for red thumbs

i was inverted fir the first half of my life, but i switched to non inverted because my brother wanted to use that way, and i didn't want to change the settings every time some one died.

Yep, that's the way I play. It's completely impossible for me to play normally.

I don't know why but inverted Y-axis feels more intuitive when controlling aircrafts.
#91 to #67 - bibbity ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
Probably because that's how planes actually work. Pull back to go up, push forward to go down.
