Yup. All because of flight sims here too, pull back on the mouse to look up.

I've always been an inverted guy most likely because of Aces of the Pacific and Aces Over Europe back in the day. My console friends still think I'm insane. When you think about it tho, when you tilt your head forward you look down, and when you pull your head back you look up, just like an inverted mouse.

I was 100% inverted, but when I couldn't get inverted to work with the duels in Call of Juarez 2 I went to regular. After a week of playing on easy and still get pwned I adapted and haven't looked back.

Inverted because I used to play space combat sims all the time before I actually started using a mouse in FPS games. Actually played Quake 1 with only keyboard, until the wonderful word of mouse FPS gaming was introduced to me thanks to Jedi Knight.

When you look up where does your head go?

It goes back.

That's why I pull down on the mouse to look up.

Same here. Though it was Duke and the 1.31 patch that gave me mouse look in FPS. So much easier.

Doesn't your mouse have a pouch, as well as being upside down

WTF?! How can anyone play FPS game with inverted upside-down settings for mouse look?

This amazes me. I am using inverted only for flight sims. For flight arcady, tps, fps and everything else Ive always been using regular and dont plan too change.

And why do I get a feeling that "inverted" people feel cool about it? Its like living in Australia... hell... I could not be able to get used to be walking on my ceiling

(No offense Cryinger)

Yep, I totally agree but third person games ruined that for me. It never felt like you were moving your head in them, so inverted felt wrong. With the rise of third person games I found myself more and more having to adapt going from one to the other. Then there were games that used both, or had different modes that didn't let you invert for some reason, so I finally said enough is enough and converted myself to non-inverted.

I agree though that once you get used to it inverted feels more like you are in the game, playing the actual character. Now that I'm used to non-inverted I can't say I notice that much difference though.

I know, I feel the same way. I tend to think of it more like my chin's movements in FPS's.

When you look up, your chin moves up, look down, chin moves down. It seems more natural that way.

Flight sims are a different story and it's pretty easy to switch from one to the other.
