Age does play a huge part in it. For example if you grew up with The Big Four and other bands from that era you're more than likely gonna favor bands from that time. On the other hand if bands like Mastodon, DevilDriver and Lamb Of God got you to notice metal you're gonna side with bands from the modern metal era.
I'm 31 now and i'm starting to get to the point where I don't really care as much about seaching for bands everywhere now. Even with the internet making the searching a lot easier than it was when I first started listening to metal. You just get to a point where it's not as important to hear every band out there. Hell, half the bands mentioned on here I say "who?" to myself after I read the name. I'm actually at a point myself where I listen to enough bands, both new and old, that i'm set for life with music. Over the last year or so I don't really bother with as much new stuff unless it really impresses me. Another reason I don't go searching for bands as much is because you begin to learn that there is far more shitty music out there than there is good music, so it's not worth the time and effort as much over time.
