2001 Gaming Gold Winners Announced!

(2/16/2001) The final tally is in! Click here to see who you guys voted as the winners of the 2001 QB Gaming Gold Awards!

Mysterious Song pulls off a Santana, easily cleaning up this year's Gaming Golds.

Despite being forced to cut the voting time short in this year's QB Gaming Gold Awards, many of the winners listed here are unanimous, with one game in particular dominating in all categories it was nominated for. However, if the win wasn't by a landslide, then it was incredibly tight. Some races for the Gold were so close that they were separated by as few as one or two votes. In fact, one particular race was so close that V Planet was forced to do a first again, by handing an award to two co-winners for a single category.

Now here, without further hesitation, are the winners of the 2001 QB Gaming Gold Awards:
