Toss-up between the NES and SNES, with the SNES probably having a slight advantage overall. The NES had a larger library of good games, while SNES had fewer annoying hardware issues as well as some games even better than their NES counterparts. The SNES may not have had as many good games in total, but what the superior hardware as well as the lessons learned from the 8-bit era were the total number of absolute top-tier games was higher, and some NES classics haven't aged as well as most classic SNES games (Zelda, Metroid, and any JRPG series stand out in particular).
