I would be interested to hear what people think was the generation of console gaming that truly felt like a massive step forward in terms of processing power, graphics and the types of games that were on offer. Do you think that in recent years the jump has reduced or just the opposite?
Below I will provide examples of consoles from each gen to jog your memory. I have not included handheld consoles at this time.
Generation 1 - Magnavox Odyssey
Generation 2 - Atari 2600
Generation 3 - NES, Sega Master System, Atari 7800
Generation 4 - SNES, Sega Mega Drive, Neo Geo MVS, PC Engine
Generation 5 - Playstation, N64, Sega Saturn
Generation 6 - Sega Dreamcast, Playstation 2, Nintendo GameCube, XBOX
Generation 7 - XBOX 360, Nintendo Wii, Playstation 3
Generation 8 - Nintendo Wii U, Playstation 4, XBOX One
