Does it annoy you when people pronounce Mario as Mare-E-oh?

No, because that's how we pronounce Mario in the UK.


Yep

I don't think it's as annoying as people who call every video game console an Xbox.

Mare-E-oh sounds more retro.

And not really, I just like it better when I know the pronunciation that the majority use.

Those East Coast folks, I tell you.


Nope, it's not us (or not me and everyone I know). I pronounce it the other way.

Slow down, buddy! Just because people can read it doesn't mean it isn't crap!

I don't know about you two, but I definitely pronounce it "Mar-ee-oh". I've never heard anyone pronounce it "Mare-ee-oh". I'm from Wales.

Don't really care how people pronounce things.

Welcome to GameFAQs, where you need to justify being wrong.

Americans always pronounce everything wrong so it's not an issue.

No we don't.

And no, it doesn't annoy me. People in the USA mispronouncing the word "roof" does. It's ROO-F, not RUUF.
