For most people it's Arma-ge-tron, like in Armageddon. I know some people say "Armadge-tron". there's an older thread about this somewhere...also, it wouldn't surprise me if French people say either "Armajétron", as in "déjà"/"maison" or "Armagetronne" as in "personne". :P

edit:
There are at least two.

I pronounce it "Arma-getron".

How did you you come up with the name Armagetron? Is it just Armageddon crossed with Tron?

From the original Armagetron website, via The Wayback Machine:
Pronounciation: just like Armageddon, just with a "tr" instead of the "dd".
:!: That site is gone and soon will be sourceforge.net. Can we release the original website to the community and mirror it for historical purposes? I can put a copy on adventuresoftron.com. I'm sure Lightron.org would be happy to have it too.

I'd be willing to put a copy on my site.

Thanks all! It's interesting that everyone really has different pronunciations lol. I ask because the "tron" in Armagetron is actually pronounced differently from the "don" in armageddon so it didn't seem right. Also I remember someone pronouncing it Ar-mega-tron and that also did not seem right. Seems like the correct pronunciation is just counter-intuitive for me.

And chrisd, haha...thanks. that was helpful :wink:

My signature is a slight variation on this to highlight the "tron" part. I don't think it's that important, really. It's what I make of it.

Me and mine always just call it tron. Not really any other tron based game that deserves the title.
