wow on the PC too? Crazy talk. I'm assuming on the PC you are using a mouse.
I invert also on PC. I'm not even a console gamer. Hell yea. Leet gamers do this.
There isn't one answer to the problem. The mouse on the pad acts as the cursor on the screen. Move your mouse up and to the left and your cursor (or in game, the reticle) moves up and to the left). Perfectly logical. If you're using the mouse to simulate a joystick (a reason to invert), then that can work just as well.

Ditto on the flight sims.

When we play 360 CoD2 on split-screen, half the guys play inverted, half non-inverted.

There's a huge difference between 3rd person camera control and 1st person perspective.

Consistent with most in this thread, somewhere I started playing with Y inverted. I can't play any other way now. :(

I'm just pointint out for those of us (incl. me) who invert their y-axis if any of you think that it'd also be logical to invert eh horizontal axis. Many games don't give you the option, this is just a subject up for debate. =p
