Nominations for the 2002 Gaming Gold Awards Resume
(8/13/2002) V Planet picks up where it left off by giving you the community more time to nominate your favorite QB games and programmers for this year's Gaming Gold Awards! Vote now.

For those who haven't figured it out yet, this year's Gaming Gold Awards plaque was skillfully crafted by V Planet Graphics Designer Toonski. :)

Back in January, V Planet began the cycle for it's annual viewer's choice event for QB games, the QB Gaming Gold Awards. The first step of this awards ceremony is the nomination process, in which the QB community votes for the nominees who will be chosen to participate in the Gaming Gold Awards. Unfortunately, the now infamous hard drive crash that occured in the beginning February delayed this nomination process, and set V Planet back from a position where the nomination process could be completed.

Fortunately, V Planet is now back up to speed. And with that, we're happy to resume the nomination process for the 2002 QB Gaming Gold Awards, and get the event back into full swing. Now's your chance to choose the best QB games and programmers in up to sixteen different categories, including two new categories: Best Strategy Game and (by popular demand) Best QB Villain!

The rules are simple. You may nominate any QB game ever made regardless of it's release date, but you can not nominate a game if it's already been nominated for the same category in the past. If you're going to nominate a QB Demo for any of the categories, that's perfectly fine, but please don't choose a QB demo that isn't really playable (you know, the kind of games that have only one town, no shops, and no means to gain experience points or battle). If you do find an early beta of a game that really impresses you, please vote it in for the Gaming Gold Generations Award, which is the equivalent of a "Best QB Demo" award.

A complete list of all the categories, a description of the category, and past nominees are now included below:

  • Best Original Graphics: Were there any QB games released that simply blew you away with graphics this year? Now's your chance to let those games be known.
