""The results this year are interesting, to say the least, and show a somewhat odd generational divide that I wasn’t expecting to see.

First, the main headline is that both Millennials (born 1981-1996) and Gen Z (born 1995-2012, don’t ask about the overlap) picked a video game brand as their #1. The difference? Millennials picked PlayStation while Gen Z picked Xbox.""

Where's Nintendo in all of this, positive that they would have both camps interested.

@onesiphorus: They should be generation "why?"..

because nothing they do makes sense.

As for millennials are gen z, it just looks like it's based on which console had the most mind share during their formative years.

Generation y sounds more respectful, doesn't it? It's like being called a boomer. Pretty sure that was supposed to be an insult too.

^Well, exactly for this reason. It's basically throwing stereotypes on people, based on the time period which they were born in.
Kinda like some racist or sexist shit...

I'm in my 30's and it feels so weird to be called a Millennial I hate today's music and social media culture with a passion. I feel like I'm to old to fit in with that group.

@warmblur: Eh. I feel there was such a huge technology leap. Someone born in 85 had it totally different from someone in 95. When I look at the dogshit that "gen z" is doing, it makes "Millenial" look not as bad. :P

I'm more annoyed at these dumb-ass labels. "Baby-Boomers" made sense, due to a marked increase in birth rate, but these "Millennial" or "Gen-Z" are just stupid.

As for this thread, it is the epitome of useless information.

I'm in my early 30's and it wasn't bad back then (90's) then it is now.

Fortnite tends to aim for the younger/new generation than older boomers. Me, I played Fortnite for awhile and got bored. The way I see it, it doesn't matter what generation you come from, I play everything and I think Arkhalipso & I_P_Daily we're being unfair how they see Fortnite as a fun game. If you really enjoy Fortnite, more power to you.

Being popular doesn't mean its good, because if that were the case i'm sure you listen to a LOT of Trailor Swift and the Beiber lol.

Oh and I play in a convoy on Forza Horizon 4 with my 2 boys teaching my kids to work together to complete a common goal, rather than to shoot people.

Unfair lol, I didn't say certain people don't have taste and then turn around and play Fortnite, now that's unfair.

When i hear the words what is popular these days i think its best to run away lol. Fortnite children? Horrible music of today, some rappers that all sound the same? Watching random streaming a game lmao... eh im in the millennial category and i would also say PS, though i rather not vote since PS no longer the company it once was.

I still don’t understand why I am grouped in with Millennials when I am much more closer to Gen X than Gen Z.

These Gen Z kids are beyond stupid. And you think the word “Millennial”....would start around the year 2000.

It’s annoying. But it’s 2020 and I can just identify as what I want, so I am Gen X.

You know that as millennials todays music and social media cultures isnt part of our generation. Not that you should care because our parents probably said the same thing about us. Just like their parents said the same thing about them.

That said it is funny that old people typically like Nintendo games. Because those games are typically thought as for kids.
