Generation Wars Week 2: SNES vs. Genesis vs. Neo Geo vs TurboGrafx-16 - Which was the greatest?

The series of battles to determine which console had the best of everything over each successive generation rolls onwards. Here's how it'll work. You make your case for which was better based upon the following:

Hardware

Games

Accessories

Services (when applicable)
