It happens every single times. How do I get out of this spiral?
I feel you're just not enjoying new triple a. Instead, buy yourself a controller and emulate older consoles. Tons of great series you haven't played yet if you give up can give up on graphx.
I prefer being a 20-something to being a kid. For one thing I can get way more games. There's also a lot of them that I can appreciate now more than I would have when I was a kid. Hell, even some cartoons are better now than when I was a kid. I didn't get Hey Arnold at all for example, but now I see how fucking good it really was. Overall, life is better because of my greater capacity for appreciation of good things and my easier ability at acquiring said things.
