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?

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.

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

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

I think you need some polish language here:

Kwadrat, trójkąt, kółko, krzyżyk

(Square, triangle, circle, cross)

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
