How do you pronounce "OGS"?

I think people might mostly fall into one of two camps:

  1. Initialism: pronouncing it like “oh-gee-ess”
  2. Acronym: pronouncing it like “ogs” (rhyming with dogs) or “ogues” (rhyming with rogues)

Personally, I like to say “ogues” (rhyming with rogues), since I also like to call the game “OG” (rhyming with rogue).

Well, anyways, let’s have a poll.

How do you pronounce OGS?

  • As an initialism: “oh-gee-ess”
  • As an acronym: “ogs” (rhyming with dogs)
  • As an acronym: “ogues” (rhyming with rogues)
  • I always say “online go server”
  • Something else (please comment)

Don’t worry, I’m not feeling lonely. I’m fine. In fact, I think it’s all hilarious, hahaha. Definitely not dying inside.

No matter how different you might be, you should take solace in the fact that you at least don’t call it “oh-gee-ess go server”

Mwahahaha! My evil plan is coming together!

Edit: are you imagining that it rhymes with “dogs” or “rogues”?

I put a smiley, because I find it funny, but I’m not even joking.

Seriously, when I look at OGS on it’s own, eg in the browser tab, that is what my mind is doing at the moment! Dagnabit!

@Eugene, I added a question in an edit of my previous post that I’m afraid that you might have missed.

Are you imagining that it rhymes with “dogs” or “rogues”?

Please, I really need to know.
