It does seem that this rating system has been little used. The highest rated game has remained the same for the longest time, and it has been rated only twice. The two main problems with it right now are visibility and competition. The link to rate a game appears near the bottom of the page. Meanwhile, there is a link at the top of each game page for rating the page. People who want to rate a game usually use the top link, which is for entering a comment and a brief rating. With two systems in place for rating games, people are favoring the one that is more visible and easier to use. David, if you want people to use this system instead, my recommendation is to (1) make it more visible and (2) use only a single rating system. Either remove ratings from comments or integrate this system into the comment system.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:
