I played neither, so I'm in the dark. Also, do the people know if they're the one with taste or not? In case they are not sure if they are in the group with taste, they also cannot decode your statement. And maybe some in the group lacking taste THINK they have taste, so they minterpret your statement totally.
So, after all, your post leaves a lot open to clarification.
It's actually really hard to convince people without taste that they don't have taste. Believe me, I tried it, but now I'm just an unwelcome guest in Nintendo threads. So even if I told you, it probably would not make much of a difference. It's not like you could acquire taste if you don't have the inherent potential. At least I haven't seen someone yet able to do so. And as you said, it's difficult to tell because some people actually have fun with the correct games despite a complete lack of taste.
I won't indulge any further in this, because I fear the wrath of the tasteless. It is quite apparent which I categorize as which if you look at my posts and threads.
If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
