How hard would it be for use to choose our own control scheme? Borderlands 2 did it, and not having zoom on a Control stick button made the game a hell of a lot more enjoyable.

While we're on the subject, why do control stick buttons exist?

I don't see a problem. Halo has always done it this way and nobody usually complains.-

I would definitely like if we could customize our control scheme, but it isn't absolutely necessary.

Halo just has different mechanics than other shooters, primarily the "modern military" ones. Unlike Call of Duty, zooming doesn't improve your accuracy. Its more important to be able to easily and accurately melee and throw grenades. As far as being able to completely set your own control schemes, I guess it would be nice, but it could possibly lead to people exploiting the mechanics, so I guess they just choose to avoid that possibility all together.

This is the fourth game on the 360 (I suppose its the third if you count ODST as an expansion pack), you would think at some point the control system would catch up to the rest of the industry.

Sorry that your brain cannot adjust to new things. But really though why can't every game just have custom controls, it shouldn't be that hard?

Fishstick's close enough for me. I do wish we could have custom layouts, but it's not TOO bad this way. At least they have a decent number of options.

I wish I liked the Fishstick scheme, it certainly would make my life easier.
