What makes meat taste gamey?

I _hate_ gamey meat. I struggle eating lamb, and I can’t even get near goat just from the smell alone. I generally don’t think of myself as a picky eater, so I’m wondering if there’s like one specific chemical or something in gamey meat that I’m extra sensitive to.

I was reading an article that compared gamey meat to the taste of liver. I don’t think this applies to me, though, because I love the taste of liver. Gamey meat has a distinct, singular taste that I can’t quite describe but I recognize it instantly if I eat or smell something gamey.
