Have a look at most fps games on a console like the x360 and again you'll see the default is the right hand controls the "look" function via the right hand side stick because most ppl are right handed and have better fine motor control and thus aiming is more accurate than if the left stick was used.
I think this is where the problem is. Im right handed and I have always used my joysticks (Bug, Python etc etc.) with my right hand.
Now consoles use direction on the left, so you naturally get used to it.
I never noticed until, the other month. When I was using an emulator on my tablet.
I said I would prefer the stick on on the right, but other people would want it on the left.
