I've been a hardcore gamer through many generations but only recently began having any problems gaming. What changed you ask. Simple,back on n64 i began playing f.p.s like goldeneye,turok and perfect dark. But moving on the c
group of buttons and freelooking with the analog stick was the birth of southpaw-trouble was on future systems it was flipped to the useless for myself default. Almost worse was bungie's idea of southpaw flip the sticks and leave all action buttons in default mode.

I took action 1st finding a customizable ps2 pad then an adapter to make it work on xbox...which worked fine until 360. I then needed my 360 pads permanently modified to work as the previous ps2 pad had. I found some1 online who did exactlly that-my face buttons were mapped to my d-pad and d-pad functions went to my face buttons while,of course,my left/right sticks+
clicks were swapped.

When you move freelook the action buttons NEED to be next to whichever stick freelook is not on the other side of the controller making a broken scheme.

Most recently i discovered even better playstation pads that work on ps2,ps3 and even pc and with a new adapter on 360.
The advantage of this is that the d-pad is 3x bigger than 360's and makes better buttons but the disadvantage is that i now must figure out how to use my headset as when i talked to send a message to some1 it played back silent. Small hicup but i'll figure it out as well.

Shockingly only the underpowered wii is ambidextrous out of the box allowing me to simply use the remote in my left hand and move in my right.
For an example of what i expect from the industry check out resistance 1 or 2 and also the conduit on wii-custimization is essential-no exceptions-no excuses.

I'm also going to columbus state for their game art and animation degree.
Of course what i really want is games everyone can play whether default,legacy or southpaw. My 1st stop with any new game is the options menu so i get up as down and down as up plus if i can toggle rather than hold i prefer that as well. Being a dominant lefty and learned f.p.s on n64
i simply can't play using default.

Riddle me this why can 3rd party developers create customizable pads while 1st pary pads remain unchanged since ps1 days-better still why haven't sony and ms put a custom layout in our profiles-if not used you use default but if used it overrides all in game controls-truely the best solution.
