Mostly idle speculation 'cuz I'm curious. And as a game designer, I obsess over these stupid little things.
They will be weighted. I'm not sure about the weights exactly yet, I was thinking about a 2:3 relationship, 2 number 1 votes for a game equal 3 number 2 votes. Alternatively it could be 1:2, so two number 2 votes equal a single number 1 vote, which makes the number 1 vote more important.
