I’ll pronounce things how I choose, thanks for your input though, John.

Maybe go focus on Daikatana 2 or something worthy of your stature.
I should be coding.

Hard "g" for graphics, unless you're into jraphics... which sounds like some kind of park.

Make sure you start calling them "J-Fegs" then, since the P is for Photo.

(Just taking the piss, I hard 'g' my gifs too. I refuse to pander to a nerd who couldn't come up with something original and instead chose to co-opt a shitty peanut butter company's catchphrase.)
I was also having some fun. And I'm actually pedantic enough to go along with "J-Feg." Consider it adopted!

Of course it is. This was known 27 years ago. :-)

IIRC the creator of the gif format insists it's pronounced with a soft 'g,' which is the main reason for the debate there. But as mentioned, there is no definitive rule for this sort of thing. I always read gibs with a hard 'g,' and nobody ever misunderstood when I pronounced it that way, so what's it matter? Old, washed up game dev can yell at clouds all day, doesn't make a difference in how I perceive a now equally irrelevant made-up term.

I don't care where it started or why. It's hard "g" gibs, because soft "g" sounds stupid.

I've already died on Hard G Hill for gibs and gifs. I always thought of gibs more like gobs of flesh and not giblets of them.

"Van Gogh painted alone and in despair and in madness and sold one picture in his entire life. Millions struggled alone, unrecognized, and struggled as heroically as any famous hero. Was it worthless? I knew it wasn't."

I've adapted to hard-G gif. We've lost that battle.

But I will die before I hard-G gibs.

It's a hard "g". The BGs settled this back in the '70s.

I feel like pronouncing acronyms just follows a rule of cool, rather than being tied to the words they stand for. Otherwise the way everyone pronounces "scuba" and "laser" would be wrong.
