Snes all day long.

I voted Super Nintendo. I'd also go Super N...E...S, saying each letter individually. SNES together, like Iwata said it, just sounds weird.

I just call it Super Nintendo. And the NES... well Ness like that Earthbound character.

I refer to my boss as Supernintendo Vargas. It's more fun to say than "superintendent"

Super Nez or SNEZ said as one word.

Typically "Super Nintendo", but I've been guilty of saying "Snes" from time to time.

Super Nintendo. It was great when saying, "I'm gonna go play Nintendo," was synonymous with playing video games. And to have the next iteration, a superized version of what made the Nintendo so amazing, was just one of the highest points of my gaming life. I am okay with Nintendo building the Wii as a brand, but the "WiiU" name is lame. They should have called it Super Wii. It would hearken back to that time, and more clearly state that this is a new system, not just a re-design or peripheral delivery system.

Geez. I can't vote because I honestly say different things to different people. If I'm talking to someone who maybe isn't as close to the game world I'll called it a "Super Nintendo." Up until a few years ago, I would always call it an "S N E S" when talking to friends/gamers. But, ever since I started teaching, I've found that they younger generation(s) say "sness" a large percentage of the time! When I first heard that (back in 2008) I was like "seriously? really!?" But, now I hear it from them a lot so ... I've started saying it.

I would have agreed with this a few years ago. =)

Ninsagi is so down with the kids.

And it's pronounced Ninsagi now.

@NinSage You're supposed to be teaching them the right way to do things, they're not supposed to be corrupting you. I can't send my (theoretical future) kids to school anymore because of people like you!

@kriswright

Right on both counts. hehe =P

Mobile games are the best games. CoD is the best non-mobile game. Angry Birds is better than Mario.

They're brainwashing me! Help!

Doesn't it? Almost as bad as a world where handhelds no longer play awesome must=play titles, but instead somehow morph into sadistic implements of medieval torture.

Me and my brothers call it Super N E S or S N E S (individual letters for both). To others I say Super Nintendo or SNESS (one word).

PS. Made the poll public because the world has to see this.[/quote
Sness, sness, sness, sness, sness.

You should add this to your list of banable offencesness.

Day One DLC is better than full game.

Samesies.

I've heard it called Snez more than anything else. I'm not sure if it's just a popular UK thing to call it Snez as opposed to S.N.E.S?
