How do you pronounce SNES?

Here’s a little litmus test. How do you pronounce the abbreviation for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System? How do you say SNES?

If you’re an actual human, you say each letter. You see SNES and you say “S-N-E-S.”

There are other ways to refer to the 32-bit console from Nintendo. You could call it the Super Nintendo, which was my preferred way to say it back in the day. You could even call it the Super “N-E-S.”

You know what you should never call it? You know what should land you in prison? Pronouncing it like this: “SNESS.” Or, and this is somehow worse, calling it the “Super NESS.”

So, please, sound off in the comments below with the one and only correct answer. How do you pronounce SNES?
