Either that or they have hipster syndrome where they have to dislike whats cool because apparently being different is synonymous with being better

I mean... a lot of old games are a lot better than many newer games, but there are also a lot of newer games that are very very good. There are old games that suck and new games that suck.
I think a lot of the negativity towards some newer games has to do with the corrupt state of game publishers and the things they do to squeeze every last penny out of their customers.0

There's a lot of newer games that are way better, but that's to be expected honestly. The technology is so far advanced that modern video games have aspects to them that were literally impossible in a lot of older video games.
That said, some older video games are better than some newer video games. I think it largely depends on the video games being compared.
If you are referring to people who play exclusively old video games and disregard new ones b/c they claim "old video games are better" then I would say probably it's an elitist thing, mostly. So, really more hipster-ish like you suggested.
However, there's a lot to be pissed off about with the current state of the AAA video game industry.
