why are people so dead set on claiming one gen to be better than the rest?

Opinions don't exist on the internet, so they're just arguing the facts.

Because it's an old classic and people don't wanna be mainstream.

The nostalgic people only like the old things because they don't understand new things.

Then the people who still play get defensive and hate on the first game to counter it.

And then the Gen 3 guys... I don't want to say hipsters but it really seems like they overdo it just to counter hate from other people.

And all the arguments are annoying, but there's nothing else to talk about right now, so let them have their generation battles until Gen 6 comes out so we can change the topic.

There seems to be 3 categories of people.

1- Gen 1 is the best. Why? Because it came first, and that's all the reasoning I need.

2- Gen 3 is best. Why? Because I'm a part of the vocal and steadily growing fan base of RSE that started out small, but is now possibly the biggest group.

3- Gen 5 is the best. Why? Because it is the most recent. And that means its better, because the more recent something is, the more up to date it is. Once Gen 6 is out, that will by default be the best one.
