Well, yes and no. Games haven't reached a plateau yet in
development. If people judge games by the way they look, there's still
some way to go until cinematic quality is reached, and therefore from
that persepctive new games are "better".

On the other hand, the gameplay doesn't improve relentlessly at all. I
wish some publishers would re-release old games using modern graphics.
