Tagging this to reply later but loved reading through some of the gamers history on here, cool to see where some of the users came from and how it's shaped what they enjoy and don't in gaming today.

Really cool thread idea imo! Good work OP.

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games?

Atari = Combat 100 hours.
NES = SMB 30 hours.
Genesis = Street Fighter II 80 hours
N64 = Starfox 64 (I could rebuild that game from memory at this point. Probably dropped 1000 hours into it!)
Xbox/PS2/GameCube = Morrowwind 600 hours
360/PS3/Wii = CoD4 800 hours
PS4/XB1/Switch = Xenoblade 2 170 hours

Generation 2 - Adventure (probably), but I also played H.E.R.O. a lot.

Generation 3 - The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros. 3 got so much play it's hard to tell.  One of those 2.  There is an off chance it was Final Fantasy 1 or Ultima 4 though, just because RPGs can get played a long time without it feeling as intense as an action game.

Generation 4 - There were several games I played a fair amount, but nothing clearly dominated: Super Mario World, Super Castlevanina, A Link to the Past, Actraiser, Final Fantasy II (4), Shining Force

Generation 5 - Final Fantasy 7, easily

Generation 6 - Final Fantasy X (probably)

Generation 7 - Both New Super Mario Bros and Civilization Revolution got about 500 hours of play.  One of those.

Generation 8 - Hyrule Warriors, easily

Generation 9 - either Breath of the Wild or Puyo Puyo Tetris on the Switch

There are also some PC games that I sunk so much time into that it would put my time into these console games to shame.  Final Fantasy XI would be the biggest one though.  I put thousands of hours into that.
