In the first half of this Super Happy Fun holiday edition of SSWL, Ryan O’Leary and Francis Sky join us and explain what they loved about 2011. Then we get down to brass tacks and shared our own top five movies and games of the year. With our lists out of the way, we went through some very complicated math (fucking addition) and calculated the Some Shit We Like movie and game of the year (Please note that the calculations included only the lists of Rick, Mike, and Bryce).
Major thanks go out to both Ryan O’Leary and Francis Sky for joining us this week. Please be sure to keep up with Ryan at ryanolearyfilms.com and @thebloodymess on Twitter. As for Fran, you can web-stalk him on the official Facebook page for The Massacre Twins as well as @massacre_twins on Twitter.
We have had a great time doing the show this year and an equal amount of enjoyment came out of individually creating and sharing these lists with you. All that being said, please sit back, relax, and enjoy our final show of 2011!
