Well it's counterintuitive to have it go 1 to 5 from left to right, but not A to E from top to bottom. You'd think A1 is top left like usual. Also my memory doesn't work that way, it doesn't store any direct information, just methods or systems. My entire house is laid out according to the way my brains works, cause it's the only way i can find something. I can play this game for a decade (i have) but if you ask me which direction the minimap numbering goes, i will not know. Ask me again in a few months and i'll have forgotten again, i will however remember that it was done in a weird way, but not which way.
