How are the "Hot New Games" chosen?

Is there an algorithm for picking the games which appear on the list of "Hot New Games"?

If so, can you explain how it works? I often wonder why certain games remain there week after week. Like "Hard Lines" I think it is called, only has 8 comments and hasn't changed in some time. Also that game "Feed Me Candy"... It has been on this list forever!

I'm just curious is all... I'm not trying to complain.
