Game related ones I mean.

Obviously not everyone is going to say everything the same way, but there are some game related words I've heard others say that bug the hell out of me. I know it's my own fault for being bothered by it, but damn:

- ko-wammy (Konami)
-orc-ar-eena (Ocarina)
-skull-tull-uh (Skulltula)
-mare-ee-oh (Mario)
-climb-air-uh (Chimera)
-zon-gee-eff (Zangief)

These bother me...You guys have any?

You'd think by now people would know that it's not oak-a-rin-na or what the TC listed.

From the same series I hate it when people say dee-koo or deh-koo when I pronounce it day-koo, but at least that's not a real word that people should be able to pronounce.

Same with e-pon-a being called e-pown-a

I am guilty of saying skull-tull-a instead though.

Can't think of anything else off the top of my head.

...That's spelled correctly, if that's why you bolded that.

I think he's indicating that's the mispronunciation that drives him nuts. Most people say
mis-pro-noun-ciation instead of mis-pro-nun-ciation.

none.

firstly: i am not from an english speaking country, so i am most likelçy used to the worng ways to pronounce things.
lastly: there are too many variations of english for one to clearly judge a pronunciation "wrong"
