    Same. I don't ever recall hearing "sness" or "snezz" back then. Growing up it was always called a "super nintendo"/"super" for short or just pronounced "ess-any-ess".

    Down here it is either super nintendo or Snes. S N E S is only pronounced by wannabees in their late 20's. I only heard it once, recently when pre-ordering my mini Snes.
    In dutch it sounds better than s n e s.
    Guess it's what you are used to.

    Sness is what originally Nintendo nicknamed it in European advertising back in the early 90's. Nintendo called it S N E S in the North America markets. That shit network Tech TV, G4 called it Sness back in the early 2000's so that is why so many Millennials call it Sness.

    Ess-En-Eeee-Esssss is how I read it to myself when I see it written on message boards

    In real life I would say Super Nintendo or Super S-N-E-S. but I haven't said those words in a long time so even I'm unsure what I would say given the opportunity.

    I'm guessing he meant "Super N-E-S".

    Probably made a typo on his personal pc. No biggie.

    Regarding the original topic, my guess is that the majority of those who say "sness" do so for regional reasons.

    The rest likely come from the camp where video games and youtube idiots are so deeply intertwined where you can't have one without the other. The nerds they watch online say it, so now they do.

    I view these people similar to the camp of Americans that type "100$" instead of "$100". They're just scripting from the internet because it's their primary reference point for everything.

    Always Super Nintendo, or Super for short. SNES never.

    Was always under the impression calling it a "SNESSSS" was an American thing, being entirely honest...

    Gotta minimise those useless syllables.

    S-N-E-S is for masochistic pedants.

    I don't get annoyed by too many things, especially when it comes to gaming as I feel it should just be a hobby that isn't taken as life or death, but hearing "SNESS" did irk me initially. I have gotten used to it since then, but similar to the "WWE Universe" branding, I will never fully accept it.

    Growing up I've always pronounced it either Super Nintendo, Super EN E ESS or ESS EN E ESS... it just depended on my mood at the time. I never knew anybody who called it "SNESS" back in the day... only on YouTube since the early 2010s is when I noticed a handful of people calling it that, and it always bugged me out. Like I said, I've gotten used to it and hey, to each his own. You'll never catch me pronouncing it that way, though.
