In place four of the "Hot Games" list on the front page is Doom: The Boardgame. This has exactly one rating, and that gives it a 5. Doesn't seem like an extremely hot game to me...

How is this list calculated, anyway?

I think its kind of like site hits...based on how many people view the game. With the new computer game, this may be getting hits from outside the community as people go online looking for DOOM related stuff.

I had figured it was related to article/reply activity. With 6 articles active in the past two weeks, including a 32-reply monster, it doesn't surprise me to be high on the hot games list.

It seems every day I'm passing over some Doom discussions while browsing the Recent Additions for something I'm interested in.
