Listener discrection is advised.

Game of the Year Listener Submissions

As you know, we're big on end of the year lists here at SMPS, and we're always eager for you to get in on the action, especially when it comes time for our end of the year festivities! Those of you that have done this before know what's up, but for anyone new looking to contribute simply follow the below instructions!

1. Pick yourself three games you liked this year. They don't have to have been released this year! If you played it this year and enjoyed it then it's fair game. On your list it goes!

2. Write a small blurb about each game. One or two sentences should suffice, but give us some words to go along with each game!

3. Email your submission to podcast [at-sign] socksmakepeoplesexy.net BY NOON ON DECEMBER 13TH. We'll be recording the Game of the Year episodes on the evening of December 13th so this is pretty easy to understand.

4. For those of you who would like to read your own lists the same rules as above apply. Three games, three blurbs, read it out, sing it out, whatever you wanna do however you want! Create an .mp3 file, attach it to your email and just send it to the above email address.

Easy as pie, right? You got just a little under a month to get those final decisions in, and we'll be doing reminders on the site in the meantime. As always, we can't wait to hear what games you enjoyed the most! So, thanks in advance for helping out!

SnS on the 2010s: Top Games of the Decade FINALE!
July 28th, 20XX

HUGE post incoming, but we got all your Game of the Decade finale fun stuff right here!

SnS on the 2010s: THE FINALE

(TECHNICAL NOTE: There was a slight clerical error when calculating DuckTales Remastered's score, which brought the game up into the top 100, so the top 100-60 entries needed to be shifted to reflect this change and don't properly align with the podcast by one spot. Apologies for this error! It's a lot of data, folks!)

This final part of the main list is so full of celebration and love of fantastic videogames that it had to be split into three separate portions so you don't hurt yourself, but feast all you like! It's all there! Enjoy each and every meticulously-selected word of praise!

Game of the Decade FINALE!
Run Time: 6:14:39 / File Size: 172.2MB
Opening Theme: "We Are The Only Ones That Love You" by Taylor

Well...it certainly took us long enough, but I think we made up it with this mammoth of an episode! We spend just over six hours revealing, celebrating, and discussing the top 99 games of the decade as voted by the Sliders n Socks forums and Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net community. You'll laugh, you'll hurl, you'll cry, but you'll also hopefully discover some new favorites of your own to love as well!

And FINALLY, the YouTube archive is available along with on-screen chat reactions and pretty banners if you want that experience too!



A HUGE thanks to everybody that made this happen. Especially to all of our list makers without whom this list would not exist. So, to Rhete, John, Ghosty, natedashnite, Zeloz, eatthepen, AustinCHowe, Carmichael Micaalus, LastZimOnEarth, TenguGemini, FreezingInferno, Pauncho Smith, Rainiac, lieronet, Psychic_Heist, Atamine634, Beepner, jetstorm4, Peaches the Rayven, Remnant, DoorCurtain, and Iffy, a very huge thank you for helping create the most ambitious and over-the-top community project this site's ever done.

Technical Note: A recent Windows Update borked Polly's sound drivers entirely, resulting in her mic's audio being a bit blown out during this episode. Her audio has been salvaged as best a possible and our guest's audio is 100% fine. Apologies to both our listeners and Trickssi.

In this almost three hours of complecte awesomeness they cover everything from a whole slew of facets relating to cosplay to the responsibilities conventions should take to keep their attendees safe and so, so, soooooo much more!

Addressing The Tone of Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net's Early Years
June 29th, 20XX

So, since we're gonna be waiting at least a week to handle the Games of the Decade finale due to illness (see the post below this one), I figured I'd go ahead and post a little something I've been meaning to address for a while.

For those that have been around Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net since the beginning in 2005, most or all of this will be of no surprise, but just in case you're someone new or who has never heard me reiterate the points below on the podcast in the past (which, I have a few times), I just want it out there so no one ever feels caught off guard by it.

When I started SMPS in 2005, the language and tone used on the site was very outwardly edgy. I used a good number of homophobic and ableist slurs in my articles and reviews at the time, from probably 2005 through around 2011. And even though I was trans (though I was not "out" online until 2014), there were a good number of homophobic jokes that made their way into my writing or writing I accepted from guests who wrote for the site as well as ableist language I'm not very proud of.

I own that shit, I said that shit, I approved that shit. My midnset at the time of "I'm LGBT too, so it's not harmful," isn't an excuse. You can't be that "hero" trying to reclaim hurtful words for yourself, because even if it's working for you, it probably isn't for the people that see you saying those things.

That reality check came for me in 2011-2012 (you'll have to forgive me, those two years are a bit of a blur for heavy personal reasons) when a High School aged fan wrote to me explaining that my site was a bright point of their day. They loved reading the reviews and articles and it helped get them through some hard times. Their issue however, was how often they'd see the f-slur thrown around so freely in my writings. It hurt. It's a word that, as a fellow queer person, they had to see and hear every day at school. And there was SMPS. A part of this person's day that they wanted to take time to enjoy. There it was giving a megaphone to the same hurtful language they used that site to get away from.

I promised them then and there that they'd never see that language in my or any guest writing again. It'd never be heard from me again, on my site or in private. A filter has been set up for years that censors out as many of the f-slurs originally found on ALL of the site's original writings, and I've personally re-written a small number of passages here and there over the years to reflect my stance since then.

There's no excuse for the site's past tone. There's no, "Oh it was a different time," or "I was just immature," or "I'm going to reclaim these hurtful words." It's bullshit. It's edginess for the sake of edginess and it hurt people, and I'm truly, truly sorry for that.

Socksmakepeoplesexy.Net is one of the finest, most outwardly accepting, loving, and very openly queer communities I have ever been a part of. And considering where I started this in 2005, I'm proud to say that the changes that have been made are why this community is here today. You can't have a community that has lasted and thrived this long sustained by ediginess and hateful, hurtful language. SMPS.Net's origins aren't pretty, I'm not proud of them, and I've worked and will continue to work to see that it stays the outwardly accepting, loving, and very opnely queer community that it has become.

That said, if you're new and reading any of this for the first time makes you uncomfortable either about me or in our community, then I 100% completley understand. Nobody should be made feel uncomfortable around any community or person for any reason. That's on me, not you.

If you read through all this, I appreciate it and hope we can all continue moving forward, learning, and bettering ourselves as best we can by our own efforts and with the help of others.

SnS on the 2010s: Top Games of the Decade Finale Delayed
June 28th, 20XX

Unfortunately, the Game of the Decade finale that was set to roll out this evening is going to have to be delayed until next weekend, July 5th and 5:00PM EDT. (Note: Given the situation, this date and time are still subject to change however, so please watch this space or follow the site's twitter for future updates.)

For the last few days, one of our hosts has been pretty sick, and their condition hasn't gotten better to the point where we feel they'd be able to enjoy the celebration of videogames with us, so rather than pushing someone through a 3-4 hour podcast in that condition, we're moving the final reveal to next weekend.

I know it sucks to have to wait for this kinda thing, but it's just not fun if one of us just isn't able to enjoy everything properly with the rest of us, so I hope there's no hard feelings having to wait another week before we can go down the final results with y'all.

Again, sorry to have to bail last minute, but I promise the finale is going to be rad! Thanks for your understanding.

Socks pal and game creator Jetstorm4 joins your pals at Sockscast Quarantine Central to hash out the last couple weeks of comings and goings. John's decided to strap on some boxing gloves and take on the entirety of the WVBA even if it kills him, Polly's only got OneShot to save the world, Rhete's not giving up until he sees the end of the Impossible Lair, and Thom decided to play a game whose name currently describes all our situations, Forever Home!

Be sure to stick around for the end of the episode where Jetstorm4 gives us a bit of a post-mortem on the creation of his latest release, Silus!

Remeber that there's also still time to participate in our ridiculous Games of the Decade list!

Our Special Guest: Jetstorm4

Socksmakepeoplesexy pal, Jetstorm4 joins myself and Taylor today as we take on Marilyn Manson's most direct and straightforward jump into the mainstream, Mechanical Animals. The band traded in their dirty and dingy industrial rock aesthetic and sonics for a more slick and over-produced 90's take on 70's glam rock and today we're gonna discuss how we think that turned out.

We got you all sorted with a hot new episode of The Sockscast! This time around, John's indulging in a Suikoden visual novel, but it's apparently got a cute vampire girl that's tired, so we think it's rad, Rhete's Fire Emblem journey comes to...an end of some sort, and Polly's exploring the remnants of a dead civilization and doesn't mind staying because she likes what they've done with the place. There's also a weird air or revisiting the past this episode that was completely unplanned!

Also, do the thing!

Also, in two weeks we'll be recording our Top 10 Anime of the Decade list episode! If you'd like to contribute to this list, it's the same way we do Game of the Year submissions.

Draft up a list of your top 3 anime of the decade (2010-2019) and write a little bit about each one. Then send that off to podcast[at-sign]socksmakepeoplesexy.net, and we'll read them on the show!

SnS On The 2010s: The Top Games of the Decade
February 4th, 20XX

It's been a hot damn minute since we did one of these huge-ass ridiculous lists, and what better way to bring the ol girl back to the site than to use it to sum up an entire decade of gaming goodness?

Rhete's got the entire thing set up over on the forums, so just click here to read on about how you can go about making your voice heard in how all of this goes down. Be sure to read the instructions carefully prior to posting!

We'll keep you updated as the submission deadline approaches and we (read: Rhete) get ready to present the entire thing here!

Winter has officially hit Pollyland, at least for a few days, so this episode Polly decided to get a little snug with an anime all about being left out in the cold, and although he's trapped in Perpetual Anime Watching Land right now, Rhete's giving us his sloppy ol' leftovers from four months ago with a unique and comedic VR experience, and something is positively draining all the Life Force right out of John Thyer! What ever could it be?

Our Special Guest: After5

The world's most famous videogame streamer in the world, After5, joins Polly and Taylor as we dig into what could very well be considered Marilyn Manson's magnum opus. The iconic 1996 release Antichrist Superstar takes center stage this episode. It's an album that's surely on Polly and Taylors personal top 10 albums of all-time lists, but how does it land 24 years later for a complete Marilyn Manson newbie?

And thus, did the Sockscast say, "Yes, it can finally be 20XX," as we're back providing that good, good podcasting content to kick off another hot 366 of consuming media and meeting every couple weeks or so to talk about it!

We get things started off with John taking us on a journey into the world of western-developed RPGs, Polly's taking a trip to River City to rescue her boyfriend, and Rhete's gotta solve the mystery of how 60 people died!

Better late than never, yeah? Even though we missed the holiday festivities this year due to illness and searing awful mouth pain, that doesn't mean 2019 wasn't a year worth talking about music-wise, and that's why Taylor and Polly got ya covered once again, breaking down their top ten releases starting with entries ten to five today!
