I don't get it - Fast results

I went to check the new design of FAST. I decided to do a search of Computer Games. The number one listing from computer games came up with gamesdomain.com as number 1. They are a much more popular site than mine. So I decided to check what they are doing right that I am not doing.

They do not have the word computer in any of their meta tags, title, or content. Yet they do have the word games numerous times. Their title is Welcome to Gamesdomain. Are they cloaking? I thought the FAST algo was pretty good. If their not cloaking than this makes no sense to me.

I do very well with the search engines, but I do well with game names, and not the terms like 'computer games' that I try and target. Game names is what my content is filled with, so I understand that. I just don't understand how these guys are ranking number 1. Any input is appreciated.

This is what you are up against:
155 Dmoz listing,
46 Yahoo listing.

And...

Cached copy [google.com] shows that the links to the site contain the word computer (and probably games)
