I noticed that the reputation from the main site carried over to meta on Gaming (at least the first upvote), I guess that doesn't work the other way around, right?

Is it then impossible to have a meta reputation higher than the site reputation?

Did you read the FAQ on the per-site meta? I highly recommend it.

Here's the link to the Meta Web Apps FAQ:

Relevant section:

Votes on meta do not affect your reputation; your meta reputation is the same as your reputation on Web Applications Stack Exchange (synchronized hourly), though you earn separate badges.

The meta reputation IS whatever the site reputation is.

Reputation from the parent site is transferred to [its] meta hourly.

But badges are earned separately on the meta site.
