2001 Gaming Golds Site Launched!

(5/17/2001) V Planet has finally launched the 2001 Gaming Golds Site, and with it comes an interesting analysis of the results.

The logo for the 2001 QB Gaming Gold Awards is made unknowingly by Detaiza.

After a long, long wait, the 2001 QB Gaming Golds site has officially been launched. The website, based on the "viewer's choice" event where V Planet readers and the rest of the QB community get to vote on their favorite QB games, takes a quick overview of the events leading from putting together the list of Gaming Gold nominees to the eventual crowning of the Gaming Gold winners.

Perhaps the most anticipated part of the Gaming Golds site is the long awaited statistics that show how many votes each Gaming Golds nominee received. Until now it has been left a mystery as to how dominant major Gaming Gold winner Mysterious Song was in terms of votes. Also a mystery is how well V Planet staff member's games fared in the event (in house games included Shell Shock, which goes under Jeremy Hammond's name, and Raven: The Yoyo Commando, which is under the V Games label). Then there's the real story on how the drama for the Gaming Gold Generations award between Project: Zeta and Ghini Run, or the tightness of the Game of the Year award. At any event, all the data from the awards event is shown at the site.

With the Gaming Golds site finished, work can now begin organizing the 2001 QB Expo, the other big event V Planet started last year. In this event, people are encouraged to show off their latest QB demos and games and promote their sites. You can view last year's QB Expo to see how the event is like by going to So if you have a game project that you're working on and aching to share with the community, get ready! Registration will start at V Planet as early as next week.

In the meantime, please visit the official 2001 QB Gamings Golds Site at!
