What generation did you start gaming?

Hmmm, I selected Gen 3 like an idiot, but would be Gen 2, I guess because your poll just said NES I didn't think properly, but it would be Sega Master System for me...which would be same Gen as NES btw tc.

I started gaming PRE-Gen1 with the magnavox pong console. (Also a lot of pinball in the bars my parents dragged me into).

Holy crap I'm old.

No, that was the real gen 1. TC is just ignorant, trying to say they're not important and altering the gen numbers to fit his own personal false opinion.

We also had consoles that came pre loaded with games. It was a while ago. At 42 years of age, I believe the first videogame was created the year I was born; by a man from MIT.

This poll is all completely WRONG!

The first generation of consoles WAS NOT the Atari VCS/2600. The first generation of consoles were the Magnavox Odyssey, Magnavox Odyssey Series, Coleco Telstar and Pong.

The Atari 2600 was second Generation.

The poll should be thus:

First Gen - Magnavox Odyssey, Coleco Telstar, Pong
Second Gen - Atari VCS/2600
Third Gen - NES, Master System (the console which hammered the NES in Europe and the console which the TC has not mentioned in his poll)
Fourth Gen - Mega Drive/SNES
Fifth Gen - PS1, Saturn, N64
Sixth Gen - Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube, Xbox
Seventh Gen - Xbox 360, PS3, Wii
Eighth Gen - Xbox One, PS4 Wii U

I started on the SECOND Generation of consoles on the old wooden Atari VCS in 1978.

I voted for the N64/PSX gen but I was kind of in-between gens.

I was born in '92 and my parents had a SNES. They also got an N64 when they came out. I don't remember when I was old enough to start playing them, but when I was I put equal time into both,of them. But the N64 was "my gen" I guess.

Those were the days. Back when it was about the games. I was too young to care which system was newer. I just turned on whatever system I felt like playing that day.

You forgot a generation.

I would consider pong and oddyssey gen 0.

Atari 2600, matell intellivision were gen 1

Atari 5200 and caleocovision were gen 2

Nes and sega master were gen 3.

We're at gen 8 now
