It's not really interesting... he doesn't analyze why he feels this way, or what about the current games he's not interested in - in fact he doesn't even make the point you seem to be inferring that games made today are "trash"... he's said he played some old games from when he was growing up and didn't feel any nostalgia either.
If you want some decent games of today, look no further than most of the popular "indie" titles... there are some great games being made nowadays, under more or less the same development model that made some really great games in decades past (and for what it's worth, there were over-hyped, over-developed, over-budget-and-still-crap games in the 80s too).
Essentially the same `debate` that comes up every 10 years or so. Pretty much whenever a new genre comes around... Adventure, FPS, RTS, MMO, 'Realistic Shooter', Casual... One nice big circle with the occasional missing link that just couldn't quite be revived.
