The first few decades of Super Bowls were almost uniformly awful games, depressing blowouts, with the few close ones mostly featuring lots of turnovers. Recently, they were pretty good, but welcome back to what my younger days were like. Oddly enough, the terribleness of most of the first 30 or so Super Bowls didn't stop them from getting ever more popular. Almost every year was the triumph of hope over experience.
