I've been wondering, how do people count these generation? I only get up to 6.

1.) Nes/Master System
2.) Snes/Megadrive (Genesis)
3.) PlayStation/Saturn/N64/
4.) PlayStation 2/GameCube/Xbox/Dreamcast
5.) PlayStation 3/Xbox360/Wii
6.) PlayStation 4/Xbox One/Wii U

Do people count back to before NES? (Atari, etc?)

Yes.  The NES generation is actually the third generation.  The Magnavox Odyssey was considered part of the first gen, and the Atari 2600 part of the second gen.
