Another year is almost over and people are talking about Game of the Year again.Looking back, I noticed once more that gaming to me is more than playing games by myself or with friends. It is also about reviews, discussions, trailers and news. And since this is Giant Bomb it is about awesome content by The Guys like Quick Looks, TNT, event coverage and features. This is why I would like to gather thoughts and opinions from the community on what the best moments were here at Giant Bomb in 2011.Here are the categories I came up with:
  • Quick Look of the Year
  • Feature of the Year (Video; including panels, event coverage, interviews, ...)
  • Review of the Year (Written and Video)
  • Bombcast of the Year
  • Story of the Year
  • Livestream of the Year (free only)
  • Premium Content of the Year
  • Piece of Content of the Year (POCOTY - picked in a final vote from the winners of the other awards)
It would be really cool if you shared your thoughts on these categories and participated in the vote. Thanks! <>


What is your favorite Quick Look of 2011?

  • Name one nominee for the final poll of the Top 5 which will go up tomorrow.
  • This nomination closes at noon PST on 12/10/2011.
  • In case you need a reminder: Here is Turboman's blog with some awesome Best Ofs.
  • Please chose only one Quick Look as additional picks will not count.

The skyrim quicklook was awesome, if only for the bit with the sabretooth tiger.

i really like the kinect quicklooks.

even though kinect looks like diarrhoea they always make really enjoyable and funny video's. and always manage to look like signed TV shows for deaf.

not sure which one though, but i will arbitrarily pick the Self Defense one

There were a lot of good ones this year. Skyrim, Skytrain, Dickpunch, Wavy tubeman chronicles, deadliest warrior:legends, Garshasp.... I could probably find a few more.

As to which one is the best one? I don't really know. I think I'm going with Wavy Tubeman, just because its so fucking insane.

Test Drive Unlimited 2

#12 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6651 posts) -

I think Turboman is the only one here with any authority on this.

Almost forgot my own pick: Il 2 Sturmovik

#32 Posted by Archr5 (33 posts) -

Skyrim. Hands down. The giant encounter is the hardest I've laughed while watching a video this year. I was already laughing when Jeff was providing the voice of the giant ant then it got way better!

@mattjam3000: Multimedia Celebrity Poker's QL was posted on December 9, 2010. Is that outside of last year's jurisdiction?

I loved the Apples to Apples QL, though that was recent so it's easy to remember.

Dark Souls is the only one this year I've actually rewatched, so maybe that one.
