The complaint still stands - the creative capacity in the medium is in a sad state, while it used to be in a better state. Nobody wants to return to the age of 2,5 systems to choose from or bootleg VHS hentai - what the dissatisfied people desire is a Renaissance of creativity, when new horizons are discovered as they were discovered by the authors of OSR or classical anime, only amplified by the fact that now those horizons are much broader, and new classics would be even more breathtaking and immortal. That issue is not unique to anime or RPGs - every cultural medium goes through periods of enhanced creativity and decline, caused by the malestrom of unique peculiarities of cultural background, chunks of raw cultivated talent and the unfeeling market demand, from theater too literature to cinema to entire branches of academic fucking science. The personal appetite of James I for theater and the fashion thus produced, in combination with individual genious landed us with Shakespearean era. The decadent, rotting atmosphere and tastes of the Table aristocracy of Russian Empire produced an entire strata of timeless literature, music and bllet classics within a span of generation - a strata that died out as decline deepened and occupied both authors and their audience with survival instead. The Broadway dominance, the creative Hollywood dash of the 70s, the Old School roleplay, the Futurist poetry spark, et cetera - all those periods came and went, in different times, producing multitudes more of desirable content than decades before or after them. It's part of a normal process, and to deny the periods of appeased market stagnation of foolish.
More than that - a universally necessary element of every of those Renaissances was cultural reflection. Whenever it was dressed in nostalgia, daring innovation, raging denial of the "good old times" or caustic hatred of the status quo, it always recognized that "Now is not okay". Don't discourage this reflection.
