I'm amazed people still say "Suda Fifty-One"

I'm not talking normal people who read a game review or box art, but rather those in the gaming industry who should know by now that they are mispronouncing the name. I constantly see videos of games like Lollipop Chainsaw and No More Heroes where even IGN and Gamespot can't seem to get it right. Haven't they been in this business long enough to know it's "Suda Five-One?"

Who made Halo 4? Three Hundred and Forty Three Industries, of course.

Seriously, though...I didn't know it was Suda Five One. Then again, I've never actually heard anyone say "Suda 51". Even if I have, I'm sure they said it like "Suda Fifty One".
When the trolls say "jump", the mods ask "how high?".

Goichi Suda, also known as Suda 51, is the CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture and a former designer at Human Entertainment. The "51" in his nickname, Suda51, is a pun on his given name. In Japanese, "Go" means 5 and "ichi" means 1.

I think they can be excused for not getting the japanese in-joke, especially since the company name is written as Suda 51, not Suda 5 1 or Suda 5-1.

but how should they know if everybody mispronounces it? I've never seen a video where he says his own name.

I call him Suda 51, fifty one. Much more catchy and easy to remember.

Apparently most of us aren't hardcore enough to know background puns for people like Goichi.

The fact that there is a topic about this is weird.
