Haha, snesify. I like it.

I chose "Super Nintendo" though I have been known to call it Super N.E.S. and S.N.E.S. as well.

Sness and Super Ness make me sick to my stomach.

The Ess En E Ess.

Though I like the idea of infuriating everyone by calling it the Super NESS.

I've called it the Super N E S more times then Super Nintendo so I voted for that...

I say Super Nintendo 95% of the time, and occasionally S-N-E-S.

I love Giant Bomb, but every time they fucking say "Snesssss" I want to gouge their fucking eyes out.

I have said all of the first three options at some point, but mostly just Super Nintendo.

Super Nintendo. I hate Snes as well.
Posted: 04/17/13, 23:30:43
Super Nintendo, but I've also said Super NES. I think either are fine.

Snes and Super Ness...just no.

I typically say "Super En-ee-ess."

Once in a while I'll say "Super Nintendo."

Someone in the Nintendo Direct said Super Ness today right? Who was it again?
Posted: 04/18/13, 00:30:48
I always called it my Super Nintendo

Just like that. XBOB and I are like twins.

Exactly this.

If it's speech then I say "Super Nintendo," and might tack on the "Entertainment System" if it's someone unfamiliar with it. In writing, I've done them all from time to time, depending on the context.

Whoever voted "Snes (said like chess)" is now banned forever.

PS. Made the poll public because the world has to see this.

@Mop it up

That is a mouthful.

In the form of answering a question, I'd say the full name, "Super Nintendo Entertainment System"
In casual conversation, "snes", "Super N.E.S.," or "S.N.E.S." Rarely, "The Super"
Occasionally I'll use "Super Famicom" or its abbreviations when referring to the Japanese versions of games.

Verbally: The Super Nintendo
Digitally (over the internet): SNES (as individual letters)
In my world: The G.O.A.T.

Sounds like some deep conversations are going on in chat!
