  3. Do you invert your y-axis?

I do, because I feel like that's how all games were by default back in the day, and now every game makes it seem like I am the weirdo.

I used to precisely because I was used to that being the default and everyone thought I was a huge weirdo in the Xbox / Xbox 360 shooter era for preferring it that way. These days I do keep it with regular orientation rather than inverted because I've gotten used to it.

I remember losing it when Halo came out, because that defaulted to not inverting, and if I wanted it to be inverted, I'd need to stop the game and pause and ruin everyone's good time. So I just got used to both styles, and now I have an awkward couple of minutes until my reflexes catch up with the game's current control scheme. It's similar to how Nintendo games switch A and B for Select/Back: I just suck at it for like eleven minutes.
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

Halo 2 had a really cool way of doing it, or at least, it was the first time I experienced it. At the start of the first level, the game had you look around to "orient" yourself. When looking up, the game would use whichever way you naturally looked as your default.

I think I use regular, but have definitely used both and can adjust to either.

No, it never felt natural to me.

Not even for flight simulators? I feel like that's how it started.

I think my first experience with inverted controls was Star Fox on the SNES.

Oh! Back in my Flight Simulator 98 days, yes I used a fancy joystick and played with inverted axis!

Ohh, this got me thinking that Star Fox 64 definitely has inverted controls.
