2001 Gaming Gold Awards Ballot Finished!

(1/23/2001) You came, you saw, you nominated. Now hear what you guys picked as the nominees for the 2001 QB Gaming Gold Awards.

Last year the Gaming Golds praised the QBRPGs, with Shadow of Power taking top honors. Who will be the winners this year?

After visiting chatrooms, reading e-mails, going through the nomination form, and having many online discussions, the Gaming Golds ballot is complete! This ballot, which includes fourteen categories (including one more new category, The "Best Platformer" Award), contains QB games and members of the QB community chosen by you, the QB community. Nominees were chosen through chatrooms, readng e-mails, and the nomination form. For each category, only five to six nominees could be chosen.

An update after these nominees are posted, the official 2001 QB Gaming Gold Ballot will be released. In that phase, you'll be allowed to vote once per day for the nominees shown on this list. After the deadline for ballot entries, the winners of the 2001 QB Gaming Golds will be announced, pretty 2001 Gaming Gold plaques will be handed out, and a new website will be put together to show off the final results.

But that's getting a little ahead of ourselves. For now, without further filler, here are the nominees you have chosen for the 2001 QB Gaming Gold Awards:

We thank all the people who nominated the games, and we congratulate all the QB developers this year who worked very hard to produce the titles in the nominee list shown above. The nomination process for this year's Gaming Gold awards was easily more intense than last year. Instead of nominations seeping in slowly until the ballot was complete, competition for nomination spots in every category was fierce.

It was tough watching your choices narrow down to five or six nominees during the home stretch, but in the end we looked at the nomination lists ourselves. We're stunned; with so many high-quality titles in competition, it's going to be very hard to guess who will win the coveted Gaming Golds!
