The point of rating rather than ranking is to let you express your opinions more precisely.

fFair enough. Rate the games on a scale dependent on the number of games to rate. Rating should still be 0 to (X-1) where X is the number of games submitted. Simply allow there to be an amount of duplicate ratings if the judge wishes. A judge could submit ratings of [0, 1, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 7], fFor example.

The range of the scale really doesn't matter. It could be rational numbers from [0,1), it could be 0-100% in 0.1% increments, it could be 1 to 5 stars in half-star increments; it could be integer 0 or 1 (a special case of score voting called approval voting). Given that it doesn't matter, I don't see a purpose in having the scale change based on the number of entries, other than adding complexity.

The coordinator should just arbitrarily pick a scale :)
