Their aren't many games with left handed people in it. Aside from resident evil 5/6 why aren't there more? I'm not even left handed this thought just came into my mind.

I'm left handed and wish there was more left handed characters or at least the option in settings. (Loved playing as Sheva in RE5)

I know it's a minor touch and it's not gonna change sales but it'd be nice to have.

Also why aren't there any official backwards controllers with buttons on the left side? I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

Sheva from RE5. Also in RE6 you can set all your characters to left handed if you wanted.

Nero from DMC 4 is a lefty.

I'm a lefty and I personally swap the triggers and bumpers in all shooters.
I once benched a whole press.

no you dont, you simply tilt the camera.
characters dont magically become lefties just because.

just like link it TP and skyward sword. flipping the game doesnt mean link is now right handed (in the case of SS, they just kept righty link as to not confuse people stupid enough to wonder why their character uses his sword with the left.)
3d erotica maker, videogame collector, phd in zombie lore. Also a girl
"dont call gay art gay" -some mod. then WHAT is it, and WHATS its name????

Link used to be left handed, he’s right on BotW. Don’t know if that’s going to be a permanent change.

Probably because most people and game developers are right handed. It’s the same reason why most protagonists are white men.
