Anyway to change standard landscape?

As most of you know, the viewing angles aren't the best on our tablets, but if you flip it upside down (home button on left) it's fine. I wanted to know if there's any kind of modification to the system files that would make it so certain games and applications would go into landscape as described above, rather than standard.

how do you do that on ICS?

you unlock the orientation lock by the volume buttons, rotate it to the desired landscape orientation, lock it again with the switch, and it will stay like that until you unlock it, or use a portrait only app. Since the update, I've kept it locked like this, it even works in YouTube videos.
