It's not that GRA did it worse than films that came later. It's that no film made after GRA attempted to do the "vs." idea in the same way that GRA did.
As TV said, in any other "vs." film, both monsters were equally portrayed, and both were very necessary to the film in order to get to where it wanted to go. In GRA, however, Anguirus is entirely unnecessary to the story. You could remove Anguirus from the film and it would still function in the same fashion that it already does.
