I think it's more that the better and more interesting stories were the ones that endured through the ages. The bad ones weren't worth remembering. It's just like how a lot of people agree that 80s rock music is so much better than what we have now, but the radio is really only playing the hits from that era.

Personally, I prefer more modern stories since the classical Greek myths in their original forms were often terribly misogynistic. In the original, Persephone was given no personality at all. She was just there, constantly crying. Hades kindly asked her to eat the pomegranate and be his queen but once she got back to her mother she claimed he had forced it down her throat.  Amazons only existed in myths to be bested by male heroes. Every single goddess, even Persephone herself, has a myth describing some kind of horror she punished someone with out of either jealousy or pettiness. Medusa was once a pretty human woman until she was raped by Poseidon in Athena's temple, then Athena decided Medusa was at fault for the temple being desecrated. 1001 Arabian Nights is a long-winded story about how most women are cheating whores who have to be slain with their black lovers (still greasy from the kitchens!) and one should totally beat his wife if she so much as asks him what he's laughing about, but hey this one chick Scheherazade is cool so the good king can finally stop killing all the maidens in the kingdom over his trust issues. And face no consequences whatsoever.  Gilgamesh was a serial rapist king who only stopped because the one guy who could match him in strength stood in his way and wrestled him until they were magically besties. 

Newer stories can be great, but it's so easy to find modern stuff thanks to the internet that it becomes harder to sift through them to find the good stuff. Please don't write off modern work!
