I started playing a dialog-based Japanese game on my NDS in hopes of picking up some vocabulary and improving my listening skills (voice actors read almost everything in the game.)
Surprisingly, I discovered that some common words are spelled wrong in the game. It seems to me as if they write them the way most people actually pronounce them in real life.
Word: すみません In-game spelling: すいませーん
I’m a beginner and would like to know if that’s a common thing and if it’s ok to pronounce these words as they are spelled in the game!
