This always interests me-I have grown up calling them Square, Triangle, O, and X, and always thought of that as correct-however, people refence them as words or mixtures. What do you think is correct?

I call them Rhombus, Spearhead, Hole, and Plus Sign, but only formally.

Firkant, trekant, cirkle og kryds 
 
Or if someone asks "which button do I press?" 
I'll answer  
"The one it tells you to push right there with big fucking letters, on the big screen in front of you. Look at the screen and not the controller you moron"

I call them A B X and Y because I play more Xbox than PS3 and its just easier to shout out a letter than a shape when in the heat of the moment and your co op partner forgets what button to reload.

Carré, triangle, cercle, X  
So that makes it A

Damn it-I accidentally clicked C instead of A on my own thread.

X O Square Triangle. 

#12 Posted by Steve_C (1757 posts) -

X, Square, Circle, Triangle... I think. It's not something I take note of.

#13 Posted by MarkWahlberg (4606 posts) -

I call the square Stevie-baby, but only when I'm alone. We have a .... special relationship.

Left one, top one, right one, and bottom one. 
That way even blind people can visualize my instructions.

#15 Posted by ahriman22 (2746 posts) -

Square, X, Triangle and Circle.
 
Don't know why, I just do.

I think you need some polish language here:

Kwadrat, trójkąt, kółko, krzyżyk

(Square, triangle, circle, cross)

#17 Posted by Binman88 (3689 posts) -

Square Triangle Circle X. I'd find it weird to hear someone call X 'Cross'.

not really. a and b are commonly used in games like the MP in MW2, nobody will confuse you when you say circle and square triangle and x
#33 Posted by xyzygy (10065 posts) -

I actually always get them confused with the Xbox buttons so I try to say Cross.
