I'm only talking about multiplayer, and you're right it is basically worthless. I don't know what you're talking about with the cover system though.
In the single player it doesn't really bother me too bad. Well, I mean, it actually does bother me quite a bit in the SP, but I'm never gonna die against a computer because I'm aiming over the wrong shoulder. In multiplayer it sucks. You're basically always forced to shoot over your right shoulder and some people prefer shooting over the left shoulder. Naughty Dog needs to grow up and add some shooting options to their game if they want it to work online.
Do you realize that there are more words in this sentence than there are in the ENTIRE control options menu in TLOU?
As far as I know, this is still true. Also, it is still pathetic.
