Do you consider the 4th gaming generation to be a Gen X gaming generation or a Gen Y gaming generation?
Obviously most of those who played those games as kids would've been the older Millennials, yet those who played it as teens would've been X/Y cusps or even core Xers.
Would you say the Genesis is more X and the SNES is more Y due to the Genesis having more of a mature appeal while the SNES had more of a kiddie appeal, although the SNES did have some mature games to it.

Here's my opinion;

1st Generation (Pong)
Boomer/X Cusp

2nd Generation (Atari 2600, Odyssey 2, Intellivision)
Gen X

3rd Generation (NES, Master System, Atari 7800)
Gen X

4th Generation (SNES, Genesis, TurboGrafx16)
Gen X/Y Cusp

5th Generation (N64, PS1, Saturn)
Gen Y

6th Generation (Gamecube, PS2, Xbox)
Gen Y

7th Generation (Wii, PS3, XB360)
Gen Y/Z Cusp

8th Generation (Wii U, PS4, XBONE)
Gen Z

What do you guys think?

My problem (background wise) is that we were always years behind in console purchases. So I got an NES when I was 6 (1990, the US Genesis was out by then) and an SNES by 11-12 if I remember correctly. It depends on when your family bought you the console.
