    I say "Live" - (rhymes with Hive" mode, as in you're Live and On the Air. Like you are the director of a movie production. I play characters and tell their story, I don't play simself, so I don't "live" in the game.

    That's my reasoning, too. "I'm done arranging the set, we're going live in three, two, one... now!"

    Live like alive. Everything else just sounds so wrong to me.

    If you pause or fast forward live tv, is it live anymore?

    I agree with “you live in live mode”. Your sim is living their life wether you are directing some kinda story or not 🤷‍♂️

    Live: give vs. live:five, has been about as annoying as .gif, like gift vs. .gif like jif. It's live like five. I agree with @cholesterol, everything else sounds wrong.( oh, and it's .gif like gift).

    Funny thing is unless I'm participating in a discussion like this I never give it a second though. It's not like every time I exit build mode or CAS I'm thinking "ok time to return to live mode." 😄

    Oh man, this is like when the inventor of the GIF said it was pronounced like JIF.

    Love Dave, but until I see his Linguistics degree I'm pronouncing it "(a)Live Mode".

    This is the hill I die on 😤

    The real question is, why didn't they put this in the GeekCon conversation options? Debating gif pronunciation is in there. Along with 1000 ant sized bears vs 1 bear sized ant or whatever.

    That’s the hill I live on. “Live” as in GIF / JIF.

    I go by proper English grammar/usage. In this context, live rhyming with alive & hive. They are two different words, thus the two different pronunciations.

    I pronounce it (a)"live" mode, but I think all of the gurus say "live"(love,etc) mode, so I reckon I pronounce it wrong and just stick to it from habit.

    Live as in alive. I don't 'live' as any sim, I don't 'live' in or with the sims, so saying 'live' (as in give) mode makes zero sense to me personally. :)

    I never considered it the other way... but that's made me think.
    It being called "live" (as in laugh love) makes a LOT of sense to me now - but that doesn't mean I'm going to be able to change what it is in my head - i've been playing since 2006! I can't kick the habit now.

    I say live as in 'alive', because it's similar to life, and I'm controlling my sims life :)

    I've always thought of it as live as in live tv. That's how I see my sim worlds and stories, little tv shows.

    Live as in five, not live as in give. Been that way since Sims 1, not gonna change it now lmao. Live (give) makes zero sense, grammatically speaking and otherwise - when we play, we are playing in live (five) mode, as the sims are doing their thing - they live (give) in a house, not on my screen! Pretty sure it was pronounced live (five) back then too, not this new live (give) thing. But that's a long time for me to remember back to lol.

    Wow. I didn't know this was a thing. I have always pronounced it similar to "hive". Kind of like live tv. I press live and the sims become alive.

    I pronounce it as in “alive”, although I can admit that the other pronunciation makes more sense with build mode, lol.

    Live like hive. I click the button and my sims come alive. I don't live with them, but they are alive when I play.

    I can see it being either one, but I always pronounce it the same as it is in alive.

    In my native language “live mode” is translated to “mode of life”, so yeah, I agree with Ninja. You build in build mode and live in live mode. :)

    I say live as in alive cause it's like a livestream. When you pause or increase the speed it's not live anymore but you can switch it back to "live" as in real time. I'm not an english speaker though so I probably said "live (laugh love)" in the past (as a kiddo) before hearing let's players say it the other way and taking it in lol, so I'm probably not an authority on the matter
