Because that's the way pivots work on a 3D plane and if it's good enough for real life, it's good enough for games.

If my camera and tripod works on an "inverted" Y axis in real life, why shouldn't a camera in a video game work in the same manner?

In real life I aim a gun in the "inverted" manner, i.e. to aim up and raise the barrel whilst keeping the sights in line with my eye, I pivot the stock down, to aim down and lower the barrel whilst keeping the sights at eye level, I pivot the stock up, so why should guns in video games be any different?

Inverted is just easier and natural, I can't get my head around controlling the Y axis in a 3D environment in the opposite manner to real life.

Because in my day it was the default and I got used to it.

I've been gaming since the 70s. I tolerated inverted until games gave me the option to go normal.

Inverted Y is for flying games. FPS/TPS....normal.

Now, inverted X axis.....don't get me started on how much I hate THAT.
