I think the difference is that the "nostalgiaf*gs" are the vocal minority. Go look at a site with a voting system, like youtube or reddit. Those kinds of comments get way more downvotes than upvotes. Even on the intellectual utopia that is youtube, I rarely ever see a "Gen 1 only" comment that doesn't have "This comment has received too many negative votes" and about 20 people replying to it.
