One of the main things that makes you a good developer is experience. Therefore, people with more experience are more likely to be good developers. Also, these people with more experience have quite plausibly collected that experience over a longer span of time, and that in the time they started to collect it, IDEs were less commonly used than vim or emacs.

Using an IDE or a console editor won't make you a better or worse developer. So use whatever you want and collect as much experience and knowledge as you can to become the best developer you can be.
