I like that.

It would be even better, if the entries would contain direct links to the reviews.

It's a reasonable request.  I'll see what I can do.

Your wish is my command.  I made the entries in the voting stats pane actual links to the reviews.

I'm thinking about changing the "Most Votes" panels to say "Most Popular".  I don't think it's much of a reach that the games getting the most votes can be considered most popular.  Let me know if I'm wrong.

Most popular would make a lot more sense.

"Poplular" may be understood as "Liked". But a vote may not mean that. E.g. E.T. got quite a lot of votes, even though it is not really "liked".

I agree. It doesn't seem right to see D-rated games under the heading "Most Popular."

I prefer the way things are. As others have noted, "popular" has positive connotations, and something value-neutral is better.

If you guys have suggestions for a better way to describe the games getting the most votes besides "Most Popular" let me know.
