Is there any way to browse the games on the site sorted by their weight score?

No nice way that I know of.

You can do an advanced search by a particular weight and then browse the results.

Example:

Advanced search -

Stick in your variables. (Note I've opted to only get results from games with 50 votes on weight, this is handy for more meaningful results)

Results sorted by rank.

There's also the odd Geeklist but they're often out of date:
Top 1000 games, sorted by weight

I've used this feature before, but never entered any number in the votes box. Does it really make that much of a difference to the results?

I was thinking about this very question and was glad to come across this thread. The question I have is "what is the sort order I see when I do this search?" I've never been able to figure this out. It's not sorted by any of the visible columns, but it is clearly not by weight either. If I do an advanced search on games ranked weight 1 to 5 with at least 250 votes and limited to games in my own collection, I get:

Hey! I actually know the answer to this! It is sorted by "Number of Views" of the game page in question. You can find this information in the Statistics section of each game's page.
