Default Has gaming changed?

At the last few conventions I attended there seemed to be more mainstream yet very fancy looking games that didn't have the degree of complexity like the games we know, knew, or grew up with. To me it seems like now that gaming has gone mainstream that the games that used to be emphasized at gaming conventions have been slimmed down in terms of rules, and given a lot of nicer looking graphics to appeal to a larger mass audience for the purpose of grabbing dollars. That, as opposed to the old zip lock back or microgames that came in those plastic boxes from ages past, which had cardboard counter, a hex map, and strong set of rules to mimic some situation.

Does anyone have an opinion here? Am I wrong on this?
