Im not voting cos im in a bad mood and surely wether you have your mouse inverted/regular totally depends on the game....

Unless you mean you somehow have an inverted mouse on the desktop :/

Inverted, it seems more natural to me. I can rationalise it by imagining a rod attached to my forehead at one end and the mouse at the other, moving my head down would result in the mouse moving away, so that is the natural "looking down" movement for me.

Though to be honest, I never chose to use inverted, when I played my first mouse look FPS (Half-Life) it was already set to inverted by default, I would not have known to look for the setting. Or maybe I did. I was half-baked a lot back then....

inverted people are trouble makers and should be shot. repeatedly. until they are dead. and then shot some more.

I had a kid in my class that actually held the mouse upside down. so he had the buttons facing him. So everything he did was inverted, and that's how he'd learned. He was good at it, lol. I tried and failed.

Regular, i've kinda used inverted for flight sims but I just feel dirty.

instead I'd rather put my sweaty hands all over a shapely joystick if I really wanted to do some crazy in(per)verted stuff.

I used inverted for several years but converted a few years back. It was a painful process but it payed off. The reason I switched to regular was because of MGS4 since it had both third person and 1st person. I would always use regular for third person but inverted for first because I felt more immersed in the game that way. MGS4 royally screwed with that so I decided to be done with inverted once and for all.

how could you hold it like that? you have to press the buttons with your palm? I just tried it, my mouse fell down, i bent down to get it and hit my head on the computer table. Thanks.
