New Games vs Old Games

Over the past years, I've watched numerous youtube videos and visited numerous forums, and lots of people say old games are better than new ones: examples include Pokemon Red being better than Pokemon Diamond (which in my opinion, I think they both have the same awesomeness), and The 2D Metroids being better than the Prime series, etc

So the question I ask, is which one is better and why? (and please give a through explanation instead of just saying "it's awesome, or "it's the best". you get what i mean)

The current generation in gaming has a lot of great things to offer, but Zero's favorite is still the 32-bit era.

All generations have great games ^_^

Its really about what you prefer for games. If you like single player games or platformers, the old games are probably better for ya!

I honestly thought that this was the worst generation yet. Besides nothing can beat the 64 era, though I consider the last gen my favorite

It really should be broken down by genre.

Games are games. Anyone who claims one generation is better over another is just a fanboy.

Dudebro has a point, but the problem is people's motives behind their answers to this question. Nobody here has this issue hopefully, but it's become about the graphics for many if not most gamers. Graphics and tons of mindless gore seems to be the only things that make a great game nowadays....
