There is some of that, certain older games somehow still manage to beat out their successors.
But I wouldn't say that modern games don't have their gems. I think to claim either category is inherently better would be to let nostalgia or eye candy override one's judgement.

Retro games had a lot of the "Addictive" factors that modern games lack. For instance, take Asteroids. You could constantly lose, but the simple nature of it made you feel like you were making progress each time. Retro games were also more challenging a lot of times because it was more difficult to win, since save points were seldom a thing.
Personally, I prefer modern games. I'm spoiled in the fact that I grew up with the more modern graphics. In an Role-playing Game, I enjoy creating a character that looks like me. This is more of a personal preference, as it helps me immerse myself into the game more completely. That being said, a game does not NEED amazing graphics in order to be good. A modern game that has the "Retro-style" graphics is Stardew Valley. I have so many hours poured into this game. It is simple and very formulaic, but satisfying in a way I can't possibly explain.
