In Beyond Good and Evil, there's a part where the controls get reversed. Up is down, left is right. I just turned the controller upside down and played it looks that.
*Pats self on back*
I played that game for the first time on PC so sadly I had to do it the "right" way (It wasn't really that difficult tbh, at least from what I recall). I did do the "turn controller upside down" thing when playing EarthBound though, since this happens in that game too.
@OP I don't think I've ever played The Sims without using cheats for money, it's way more fun that way xD
