So let's talk about Leadified and his method, because that might actually be contributing to the current problem. I can see now that a low score is good. However, #50 gets 50pts, and unlisted gets 60pts. That means just being on someone's list improves it's score by 10. That means that if you have a lot of Mario/Zelda games that appear in the 30-50 range on many people's lists then they are really going to shoot up in the rankings, even if most of those voters don't really want to see that game in the top 10 and it is on their own list. So, one simple thing you can do is just make unlisted games worth 51pts instead of 60pts.
I agree with this. All this does is to give an unneeded bonus to games that show up in a lot of lists. Those games are going to end up with high rankings anyway. This is probably the biggest factor in hurting games that score high in a few lists, but get completely left off most others. It would also be a simple change and not involve any complicated math or formulas.
