I want to post food analogies since I've been starving for the past 3 hours and I finally just ate. I don't care that this has all been said in one way or another. I'm celebrating my stomach's happiness now.
A chef can use the same ingredients as someone else and still make the food taste entirely different(not only that, but they can probably make an entirely different type of food). In the end, someone will inevitably complain to them that "It's great, but... YOU USED TOMATOES! Everyone uses those!" And someone will probably still say, "But, it tastes almost exactly like the specialty dish at The Obscure Diner out in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, Nitpickingville!"
And sometimes people will try to sue for the food being too hot, or including ingredients that they're allergic to even though the warning was on the menu.
But does any of that really matter as long as it tastes good? As long as the majority of the people experiencing it, enjoy it?
It all depends on whether you want to focus on the individual parts of something or on the final product in the end.
But... if all you've had for the past 3 months is pizza and you're tired of it, then of course even the best pizza ever will probably make you barf at that point. Still, some people don't ever seem to get sick of pizza.
At some point in the future there could be new ingredients to play with, too. Ingredients that we can't even imagine now, because we're just looking in the wrong places or something.
