Phillip "Phil" Burnell (born April 6, 1982 (1982-04-06) [age 35]), known on YouTube as DarksydePhil, or DSP for short, is an active member of the LP community on YouTube, which he joined in 2008. He used to have a signed contract with Machinima, until March 2017. His current main channel is 'DSPGaming', where he posts up raw, unedited playthroughs. His vlog channel is 'THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS'. His channel for edited content, such as reviews and montages, is "KOGaming."


DSP calls himself a "former pro fighting game competitor", and has placed 4th for Super Turbo in the 2005 EVO tournament. He has the nickname The King of Hate from this period. Many people believe this is because he enjoys constantly hating on other people and/or video games, but Phil insists that the real reason is because he had differing opinions that were radically different from mainstream ones, in which a lot of his opinions were subject to controversy, albeit using the infamy that many people induct upon him as a way of fueling himself.

DSP says that he is "different than other YouTubers" and he doesn't mind that he isn't as big as some other YouTubers. DSP is known for the large amount of negativity that surrounds him on YouTube; this "negativity movement" began in 2012. In addition, he is known to not be very good at playing certain video games, a statement that he himself has admitted previously. He calls what he does on YouTube a "business". His two main inspirations for making videos online are 'The Angry Video Game Nerd' and 'The Nostalgia Critic'. DSP says that he doesn't care what other YouTubers say about him, but at times he has made videos where he addressed certain YouTubers who called him out. DSP also claims that he hasn't changed since he started posting up videos on YouTube, and that he doesn't watch other YouTuber's content. DSP is known for his classic playthroughs such as Heavy Rain and Fallout 3, during the early days of people playing and uploading gameplay for YouTube. His laugh, humor and style of commentary are famous (or infamous) things about him and his content.

DSP has a serious back injury (a severely herniated disc) that has plagued him from around late 2007 to the present day. He manages this by not driving for long periods of time and by not doing heavy lifting.

DSP lived with his parents until 2004 and then again from 2007 to 2009. In 2009, he moved into a condo in Connecticut, and lived there until 2014. In June 2014, he and his, at the time, girlfriend Leanna (A.K.A. Panda Lee) moved to Seattle, Washington, but he and Leanna broke up in May 2017 and she moved out.


DSP posted up videos on YouTube originally just for fun from 2008 to 2010, and didn't expect it to become his full-time job at that time. He made YouTube his full-time job in late 2010, after being laid off from Helicopter Support, Inc. in Trumbull, CT. His original YouTube channel "darksydephil" lost its AdSense partnership in late 2010; he then moved his content to, but due to a number of users submitting complaints to the staff regarding Phil's anti-Semitic jokes during the Dead Space 2 demo, he was banned. He got signed with Machinima in 2011. From 2011-2012, DSP was involved in stopping bills against gaming, such as SOPA. He got his contract with Machinima renegotiated in late 2012 and began making less money than he was at the time he got partnered, and he made changes to his content. He recorded his gameplay from 2008-early 2013 by pointing an HD camera at his TV screen, and around spring of 2013, DSP started to direct capture his gameplay. DSP then started recording gameplay in 1080p and 60 FPS in 2014 when he bought a new PC, replacing his other one that was built for him.

DSP had very good views on most of his videos from 2008 to around 2012, but his views overall have declined over the years because of the negativity and because of other YouTubers who do edited gaming videos who are bigger and better than him. In 2012, DSP posted up a video regarding people who claim that he has "changed". Negativity grew strong around DSP in 2013, and the negativity still continues to this day. DSP wanted to make more changes in 2014, one of which included moving out of CT, which he did in June of that year. DSP live-streamed on Twitch for about a year and a half, but after Twitch staff told Phil in November 2014 to reduce his streaming rate while playing Assassian's Creed: Unity, Phil quit streaming from the site and started streaming on YouTube. He created an account on Patreon in early 2015, which has since gained a mixed response from his viewers.

DSP was SWATed on June 24, 2015, during a livestream of Batman: Arkham Knight; however, no one was harmed or arrested. He was also DDoSed on June 26. DSP was attacked multiple times throughout 2015 by his haters/detractors, including getting false copyright strikes on his two main channels for fanart that he supposingly had the rights to use. He also couldn't live-stream for certain periods of time. To stop more issues, DSP decided not to accept anymore fanart, and he deleted hundreds of videos that had fan-created content included in them, and also privated his Nintendo DS playthroughs. Not long after, his views began to drop. An anonymous source told Phil that youtube had changed its system and when the videos were removed, his total views dropped, thus lowering his rank in the search engine. DSP was outraged by this and even considered suing YouTube. He also got his contract with Machinima renegotiated not long afterwards (for the second time) and began making less money. He also posted up an update video on this subject.

DSP then announced a new channel for 2016 as part of a 'three pronged plan' (gaming/vlogs/edited content) to move forward. He opened his new channel called KOGaming in early 2016, where he would do his game reviews and edited content, so those who do not subscribe to him out of fear of getting their inbox flooded or those who lack the time to watch his entire playthroughs can enjoy his content.

DSP was caught masturbating live on pre-stream with facecam on May 1, 2016 before he was going to stream gameplay of the Nioh Alpha Demo. He claims that he didn't know that the camera was on. Ever since that pre-stream went live, he gained more viewers and subscribers; however, many YouTubers now make jokes about him masturbating, and the negativity seems to have gotten worse. Other big YouTube channels have covered this incident, such as ReviewTechUSA and DramaAlert. DSP addressed the situation directly in a pre-stream video the following day. DSP will bring up the incident every once in awhile. A video where DSP bashed the game Homefront: Revolution went viral online (including on 4chan) and now has close to 1 million views. He also got thousands of new subscribers on his KOGaming channel.

DSP posted up a "addressing state" video on August 22.DSP has announced in October 2016 that he is nervous about his future, due to low views during that Hardcore Gaming Season.He further explained the situation in The Week-In Preview, and then in a special vlog. Low views continue to this day; all of this traces back to the copyright attacks from summer 2015, because DSP's rank in the search engine hasn't changed too much. DSP also made a follow-up video to the special vlog. On November 16, DSP posted up a business update video regarding the future of his live-streams, and he said he can accept fanart again because Youtube has a more tolerable copyright system. DSP has also stated that he will not live-stream as much anymore. On November 21, OBS crashed on DSP, deleting all of his settings that he had written down two years ago. He then tested out OBS Studios and he returned to live-streaming on Twitch on November 29 for the first time in 2 years to stream gameplay of Final Fantasy XV. He will continue to stream on Twitch now instead of YouTube.

DSP has announced that he wants to implement changes for 2017. He released another business update video, and he is still nevous about the future. He also downgraded his gaming videos from 1080p 60fps to 720p 60fps. Also on KOGaming, DSP has decided to accept edited videos from his viewers, calling it a "Community submission". He also uploaded the very first officially approved "This Is How You Don't Play" video on KOGaming, but it was taken down later. He plans to release other videos like this in the future. DSP has also changed his schedule, streaming an hour earlier each day and he has decided to try and take certain days off with Leanna.

Recently, DSP has been having a fiasco with ad avenue, and it has led to him almost wanting to file a lawsuit against YouTube, because he is losing money. He is possibly deemed as "advertiser unfriendly" and he talked with Machinima about the situation. They suggested that he should upload shorter videos like back in the old days, which Phil wasn't too sure about. On March 2, DSP revealed that he was layed off by Machinima after a six year long partnership with them. DSP also has opened a Teespring page. DSP got a Nintendo Switch on launch day, but unforunately it bricked. He is currently talking with [ other companies for partnership, and also revealed that his YouTube channels are being "messed with".

In April of 2017, Phil proposed to Leanna and she reportedly accepted it, but in May of 2017, Phil and Leanna broke up and she moved out.

Also, Phil was playing the game on Easy Mode, even adding much outrage to fans that he couldn't beat the game on that difficulty setting. Phil would later state on his Twitter that he will no longer be accepting long-form RPGs as Patreon's Choice selections, after seeing how Persona 3 FES' playthrough came out to be)

Mini Reviews

Phil will occasionally do mini reviews of games that are much smaller unworthy of official hateful truth reviews, or if he returns to a game and has altered opinions of it.  Phil considers them unworthy of receiving scores, so he doesn't score them at all.

  • Everybody's Gone to the Rapture (too short for an official review & score)
  • Splatoon (3 months after the Hateful Truth review)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Awakening
  • Yakuza 5
  • The Walking Dead Michonne Episode 1
  • Hitman Episode 1
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops III Eclipse DLC

Project 7

Phil started a short series called
Project 7
Project 7 on his old channel, DarksydePhil. It only lasted a for a few videos. In 2011, he surprised his fans by telling them he was bringing Project 7 back. In January 2012, Project 7 was published to YouTube. The cast for the show was Phil (as himself), John Rambo, Howard, and OJ (Other John) as misc. characters, and members of the YouTube channel Respect the Pact. Respect the Pact filmed and edited the show, and added all special effects and post-production. The music for the show was played by the video game metal/rock bands: Year 200X and Armcannon.

However, the series was indefinitely suspended as Respect the Pact had a shift in priorities and were unable to continue filming/editing the series. After DSP's move to Seattle, Washington, it appeared as if the series was officially canceled, but Phil announced that he would bring back Project 7, although it will require a lot of work.

Unfortunately, he announced again that Project 7 would be indefinitely postponed. Also, with Phil's severed ties and bad blood with both former friends John Rambo and Howard, it's highly unlikely Project 7 would ever be brought back up to the light of day even though Phil promised its supposed return.

Cooking with the King

Cooking with the King, sometimes called Poorly Cooking with the King, is an occasional show which showcases Phil cooking specific meals or dishes on camera; the title of each episode, Cooking with the King or Poorly Cooking with the King, is ultimately determined by how well the dish ends up when it's done, if it's any good or not.  This series started back on September 7, 2010, and ran until November 14, 2010, on his original vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEHD.  The series was temporarily shut down due to time restraints/disinterest in not only himself, but also his fans, but was revived on January 2, 2014 on his new vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS, and is still ongoing, but has no set dates on when new episodes will be released.

DSP Tries It

DSP Tries It is a series that Phil started on October 4, 2010, on his original vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEHD.
DSP Tries It
 It was started with the intention of branching out and reviewing new or uncommon food products, but he would occasionally review gaming accessories as well, but not very often.  The show ran until December 10, 2010, but was revived on his DSPGaming channel on January 30, 2012, was shut down again May 14, 2012, but was revived again on his new vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS, on December 31, 2012, and is still ongoing.  He rates everything he tries from 1-5, contrary to games, which is 1-10.  The three main things he judges on food are taste, presentation, and nutritional value.  DSP has covered food from restaurants such as McDonalds, Burger King, Arby's, Subway, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Dominos, Dairy Queen, Wendy's, KFC, and Jack in the Box, among others.

Smark Guys

Smark Guys was Phil's pro wrestling commentary show which he did with his good friend John Rambo back when Phil lived in Connecticut. In this show, Smark Guys would express their opinions and feelings on pro wrestling shows, as both of them always grew up watching wrestling when they were younger.  Each episode would often times elapse an hour long, due to how deep they would go into their thoughts on each show.  Smark Guys started on October 9, 2010, on Phil's original vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEHD.  When that channel discontinued he continued the show on his DSPGaming channel, and then continued it on his new vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS.  The show was shut down, however, in June 2014, when Phil moved out of his Condo in Connecticut to Seattle, Washington.  Due to distance issues, Phil's Skype issues, and John having real life stuff to do, they unfortunately had to abandon Smark Guys.  Although Phil has made no official announcement to drop the series permanently, and he has in fact stated that the show COULD return in the future, most of his fans consider it to be dead at this point, or, at the very least, on an indefinite hiatus.

Loot Crate Unboxings

LootCrate is an online nerd-related box which is sent to subscribers every month, each one tagged with a specific LootCrate and a bunch of items related to that category.  Back on September 24, 2014, Phil signed a six month subscription, and after the six months were done he decided he liked the box enough to continue singing the subscriptions.  Phil made an unboxing video every single month since he signed the initial subscription.

Hate LIVE is an ongoing, weekly podcast series that Phil started on May 24, 2013. During these shows he gives Hate Live on his channels, (which allowed him to get rid of the Channel Updates which he's made for years up to that point), what he's been doing on his channel recently, gaming news, societal news, as well as occasional special segments such as Back in the Day with DSP, in which he discusses his younger days as a gamer, the arcades, being a professional fighting game player, ect.  The show remained in its beta phase until December 19, 2013; after that he finally worked out all of the kinks in his podcast, and he changed the show to the official Hate Live Podcast, which ended at the end of 2015 going into 2016.

The Week In Preview

The Week In Preview is one of Phil's oldest ongoing video series.  It is a weekly video, usually posted on Sunday, or The Week In Preview the rare occasions Monday, but only when he's really busy on Sunday.  In this weekly series of videos, he discusses everything that he will be doing during the week coming up, so that people can prepare themselves for his content that is to come in the future.

Ask The King

Ask The King is the name of Phil's monthly Questions & Answers video series, in which he answers fan questions that Ask The King asked on the forums, on Twitter, and on Facebook.  The series started back on November 11, 2010, on his previous vlogging channel, THEKINGOFHATEHD.  After that channel became an archive the series was moved to DSPGaming, and it was then moved to THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS after the new vlogging channel was created.  The series was previously called DSP's Inbox, in which he'd answer questions sent to his email; before that, however, he had a short series called Friend Request Ridicule, in which he'd go on Xbox Live and make fun of the comments that those giving him friend requests left, due to him constantly telling people not to send him friend requests.  After deciding that he didn't want to be that big of an asshole to his fans anymore he transformed that into DSP's Inbox, and that was eventually transformed into Ask The King, which is what his fans, both new and longtime fans alike, know it as today.  He uploads new episodes, usually, the final Thursday of every month, and usually has 3-4 parts during each session.


Travel Vlogs/Other Special Vlogs

Whenever Phil does any major traveling he records vlog-style videos of them and uploads them to YouTube.  He has done this almost since he started YouTube, so he has travel vlogs on his original darksydephil channel, on his THEKINGOFHATEHD channel, on his DSPGaming channel, and now on his THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS channel.  These vlogs include when he goes on vacation, when he goes to a gaming convention, as well as when he moved crom CT to Washingtom State/traveled their before he moved to check out the area. Other than travel vlogs he also does Christmas Tree lighting vlogs every year and posts them up on YouTube, too.

Movie Reviews

Back on his old darksydephil channel, Phil was known to have done some movie reviews. They weren't very many, and he since hasn't done any of them on any of his other channels. He's said that he could revive the series in the future but has yet to for two reasons; one, he rarely ever goes to the theater to see movies anymore, and two, he would need the time for the reviews.

Hardcore Gaming Season Giveaways

Hardcore Gaming Season Giveaway 2014 Week 1 October 3, 2014-007:17

Hardcore Gaming Season Giveaway 2014 Week 1 October 3, 2014-0

The "hardcore gaming season giveaway" is a series of videos that Phil makes annually every "hardcore gaming season" , as Phil calls it (the time period of around September to December of the year, when big budget games are released).

In an attempt to give back to the most loyal members of his fanbase, during the busiest time for gaming in the year, he will give one game a week away to a fan of his. He starts by making the introduction video, and the week after is when he starts giving away games. He makes a new thread each week on his website,, and those who want to enter have to make a post in that thread; it doesn't matter what you post, and he shows off what he's giving away before you have to post, so it's not a mystery. He then puts the total number of posts, minus his own of course, into the random number generator at, so that the winner is completely random and completely fair. If someone doesn't respond to their win, he'll choose a different winner in the same video he showcases the next item. Phil is willing to ship all over the world, but he warns that some games he gives away are region locked, meaning you can only play them in certain countries specific consoles. Phil started this series during the fall of 2012, and has done one every single year since; however, he stopped as of 2015, because shipping costs were getting too high.

Release Day Unboxing

Release Day Unboxing was a series Phil started back in 2012 which consisted of a vlog of him unboxing all games that he bought on release day and showing off every single thing in them; he would then upload the video to his channel, before he began the playthrough. These videos were posted on his DSPGaming channel from January 31, 2012 until November 20, 2012, and then on his THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS channel from December 4, 2012 until May 20, 2014, when he shut the show down due to collectors editions not being as great as they used to be. This series was meant to be replaced by a series called Game Day, which he has yet to start.

Game Day

Game Day was a proposed series that Phil was to begin, having talked about it many times wanting to start.  It is meant to replace Release Day Unboxing, where he would talk about a game he's about to a playthrough of on the release day before the playthrough begins. However, in 2016, Phil announced that he doesn't see Game Day happening because he doesn't tend to buy anymore physical copies of games.

YouTube Parody Series

Phil announced in 2015 that he wanted to make a series where he would parody YouTube. However, not much information on the series has been released since it's original announcement.

Many on YouTube have become very critical of DSP because of his actions and/or decisions, for a number of reasons. Some people also don't like DSP for his attitude and/or his personality. He has been called a "hypocrite", "asshole", "elitist", "liar", "manchild", and "idiot" numerous times by not just his detractors but by bigger youtubers, smaller youtubers, actors, and videogame journalists. Even companies such as Achievement Hunter have laughed at DSP. Some people have also called him "the cancer of gaming". DSPGaming was named the worst gaming channel on YouTube by NFKRZ.

  1. Phil is well known for shrugging off all criticism as hate. He is notorious for insulting those who criticize him or express a different opinion than him. As an indirect result, he very often ends up insulting fans to which he says "good riddance". He brands all criticism and parodies of him as hate and online bullying and has said that all youtubers who dislike him are bad people and/or "idiots". He claims that anything negative towards him is not justified and that he doesn't understand why some people don't like him, and people in turn will say he has no self-awareness. He often accuses those who create videos criticizing him as jealous haters and trolls. He laughs at people's supposed immaturity when they challenge his statements. He also brands anyone who finds anything of his controversial as drama queens. Phil will sometimes admit to things he has said and/or done, or will say that some things that have been said about him have a "little nugget of truth" to them; but in the end, he will never fully admit to everything that has been said about him. Many critics have identified themselves as former fans but Phil dismisses them, saying they were not "true fans" and have been "indoctrinated" by his supposed detractors. Phil has called his critics: "mentally ill", "sociopaths", "haters", "trolls", "cowards", "idiots", "criminals", "kids/children", etc. He will even sometimes insult his own fans, and he also said that the common Youtuber is a "dumb fuck".
  2. His critics have also become the scapegoat for all his misfortunes.
    1. When his views began to decrease, he said it was because his critics discouraged newcomers from watching his videos.
    2. After getting SWATed, though both fans and critics were outraged by what happened, he claimed that the perpetrator was inspired by his critics to commit what he called "attempted murder" and encouraged his fans to find videos criticizing him and make a comment about how it, supposedly, nearly got him killed.
    3. After getting a copyright strike against his main channel, he compared the situation to having a gun put to his head, and blamed his critics for what happened.
    4. DSP said that he "could have been stabbed and if he survived, it would be less damaging" than what the detractors did to him in the summer of 2015 with the false copyright strikes and how they supposingly messed with his business. Even though DSP himself deleted the videos that caused him to lower in Youtube's search rank, not the detractors.
  3. Phil has repeatedly had conflicts with everyone he encounters and wherever he decides to upload videos. Prior to YouTube, DSP would constantly trash-talk, insult, and threaten other members of the fighting game community, gaining wide-spread hate, and leading to the nickname "The King of Hate". One example is when he threatened to find Isiah "Triforce" Johnson and beat him up. He also bragged about being the best fighting game player in the country, superior to players like Alex Valle, Mike Watson, and John Choi after placing 4th at Evo in 2005 for a flawed port (which DSP readily admits) of Super Turbo, further lowering his reputation in the community. Afterwards, playing a normal arcade port, Phil would repeatedly lose to all these top players. In 2016, DSP trash talked about FloE and Blackpeddles.
  4. DSP has also been criticized for putting ads on videos where he talks about recent tragedies and disasters, such as Hurricane Sandy, the Sandy Hook Shooting, and the death of his friend. Many accuse him of attempting to monetize the situation. Phil did not make any defense against these accusations and simply threatened those who accused him, saying "I will come find you and I will beat the shit out of you."
  5. In the past, DSP has addressed people who use ad-block, saying that it hurts businesses online who earn money based on ads, which is true; however, ad-block is extremely popular regardless. In 2016, DSP now has an ad-based contract with Machinima, and he encourages viewers to disable any ad-blocking software they may have. He even goes as far to say that people who use ad-block are "thieves".
  6. As noted previously, Phil made YouTube his full-time job in 2010, after being laid off from Helicopter Support, Inc. in Trumbull, CT in 2010. However, his original YouTube channel, DarkSydePhil lost its Adsense partnership in later 2010 after Phil encouraged users to click on the ads at the beginning of his videos. Though he claims this is untrue and that the real reason he lost his Adsense is because youtube could not stand the notion of him becoming successful and making a living off gaming. Even though Adsense tracks and blocks youtubers by IP so that any youtuber who has been banned from Adsense cannot open a new account, Phil has opened a new account thanks to him moving and getting a new IP address.
  7. DSP moved his content to in 2010, but he was banned for anti-Semitic remarks that he made during his Dead Space 2 Demo playthrough. In the videos, he roleplays Issac Clarke (the lead protagonist) as the "last remaining Nazi" and refers to the Necromorphs (the enemies) as the "Jews", whose "greed" caused them to become monsters. Rather than apologizing, Phil instead blamed a "troll" who reported the video, claiming it was done out of jealousy. More recently, Phil has advanced the excuse that he was simply using a "well-known" character from the Howard Stern show, although no can recall such an event on Stern. And while he claims that he has apologized (again, which no one can recall seeing), Phil also stated that it's something only a small group of people care about and that they need to get over it.
  8. Starting in March 2013, Phil regularly streamed on his channel, and was partnered with the website. After Twitch staff told Phil in November 2014 to reduce his streaming rate, Phil quit the site and started streaming on YouTube, resorting to a primitive IRC chat client, as well as short-changing his paying Twitch subscribers, many of whom were outraged. Several people went on and trashed it with nasty images and destroyed the website altogether. Many accused Phil of not caring about the viewers anymore and attacked him with negativity. The whole stituation was described by DSP as a "mess". It took several months before the website was up and running again with a new look, and people had to get used to the YouTube livestreaming.
  9. Many have taken issue with Phil's style of commentary. His commentary can consist of snorts, burps, clearing his throat, whining/complaining, singing, toilet humor jokes, being over-dramatic, general stupidity, anger at and insults at the game developers, or sexual remarks about female characters. He sometimes tells a game or a character in a game to "suck [his] dick". He has become known for making offensive jokes, such as saying "in China dey say chicky chang wang Charlie Chan chicka chocka chocka cha". During his Walking Dead playthrough, when Clementine, a young child, is to stitch her arm, he laughs and makes sexual noises while she screams in pain. Many viewers feel he ruins cutscenes in games with his commentary, and he also sometimes skips cutscenes that may had important things in them. He also complains about too much grinding in some video games. He has also become known for insulting Troy Baker and Hideo Kojima. He is equally verbally abusive towards other gamers when losing online fighting game matches, punctuated by an infamous tirade for Injustice where Phil called his opponent an "asshole", "fucking idiot", "fucking loser", "your mother probably shat you out you piece of shit" who "sits in his mom's basement" "eating your whole fucking bag of Doritos and chugging down your fucking Fanta".
  10. DSP's sportsmanship has also been heavily criticized. As mentioned above, Phil trash talks his opponents. If he wins, Phil will boast how his victory came from skill. If he loses, he will blame lag, his controller, the character he is playing as, the character he is playing against, or the actual player he is playing against. He often accuses other players of watching his stream and counter picking or performing so called "online combos" and after losing will insult his opponent telling them to "go die in a fire" and calling them "a waste of human life". He also claims there to be something used against him called a "lag pattern", which doesn't even exist.
  11. In addition to the problems with DSP's commentary style cited above, Phil often does a very poor job of understanding the controls and mechanisms he plays. He sometimes will complain about the framerate in some games, or bash a game for the framerate alone. Often, when a tutorial is offered, Phil replies with "shut the fuck up" and skips it, only to repeatedly make mistakes later, and he blames the game developers for not properly explaining the mechanics. Phil constantly complains about the game not working, or game bugs/glitches, when at times the issues are his own fault, and he rarely ever admits his own faults. He often complains about button lag, his game not registering his commands, or his inputs being dropped, when there appears to be nothing wrong of the sort, and viewers joke and call it a "haunted controller." Phil claims this is his "comedic persona" and that he could be good at games if he wanted to. This comes into direct contrast when he claims to have no gimmick and is the "realest person" on YouTube. He has over the years contradicted himself on whether or not he is actually good at playing games. Viewers have noted that DSP needs glasses, because he often states things that he witnessed in the game that are incorrect, but he was only seen wearing a pair in 2014 and hasn't used them again.
  12. Phil has his own forums for discussion about his various videos. However, he constantly deleted posts, banned users and locked threads that looked upon him in a negative light. It got to the point where a majority of his mods had felt he was behaving childishly and abusively. Many moderators attempted to convince Phil of this and, after multiple failed attempts, he finally agreed to stop closing threads and consult the moderators instead. However, he did not keep his word and continued to close threads and even rescinded the administrator status of the moderators. Phil struggled to keep the site running on his own and eventually an unknown party hijacked the full access of the site in late 2014. Phil decided to shut the forums as well as all of until further notice.In 2015, with help from one of the moderators, he designed and reopened the site and forums stating he would be using them for utility purposes of gathering fan created content for his content. However, all his moderators chose to finally leave. Phil has stated that he blames them for what happened to his forums and within 3 weeks of the website being open again, he again started to close threads, ban users and delete postings that either stated negative facts about him or had conversations about the group known as the "SoK" (Sons of Kojima) or any other "haters".
  13. Phil has also been criticized for his behavior and responses on his own forums. He is known for disregarding and breaking forum rules. Many forum users and moderators have complained and even flagged Phil's posts to which Phil responds with an insult laden message and even once wrote "I cannot break the rules. I am the rules".
  14. Many viewers of Phil have also complained of their treatment in the stream chat while watching his live stream. Many of them complain of moderators that abuse their powers, banning anyone that gives criticism, says anything negative, or says anything that is not directly related to Phil or his video. Other stream moderators have brought this up with Phil but he ignores all the complaints and insults the moderators who take these complaints seriously, saying they are being "fooled by the same group of people over and over" and that anyone who agreed with the complaints were "deluded beyond belief."
  15. In early 2015, Phil decided to open a Patreon page, which he has admitted is a donation based service. Even though he had stated numerous times in the past he would never do so and making fun of Angry Joe for his page. Ever since, people on YouTube have accused Phil of only caring about views, money and Patreon.
  16. DSP has criticized the mainstream media for being unprofessional in their game reviews by saying they don't finish games from start to finish, to give that game that they're reviewing a fair review. Despite this, DSP himself has reviewed games without completing them, such as Tony Hawk's Pro Staker 5, Lords of the Fallen and Homefront: The Revolution.
  17. In addition to groups which DSP calls his "detractors", he also has had back and forth disputes with other well-known YouTubers as well.
    1. TotalBiscuit: In 2012, when DSP gave the video game Journey a much worse review than the majority of the critical acclaim given by others, DSP called out TotalBiscuit for having a differing opinion, as the latter had declared his Game of the Year for 2012. In more recent years when DSP was subjected to mass criticism, TotalBiscuit accused DSP of name dropping him in an effort to seem like he was a respected associate of his. Furthermore, when asked about DSP and his recent behavior in response to the negativity surrounding him, TotalBiscuit expressed his dislike for DSP's attitude and content, citing his reputation of pinning blame on everything and everyone else but himself when it comes to his video game playthroughs. He also stated that although he doesn't like seeing people getting harassed online, he feels that DSP has brought that harassment on himself due to the premise of his content, in which he acts like a "court jester that doesn't want to be taken seriously". DSP responds by calling him an "elitist" and says TotalBiscuit never of his videos for feeling this way.
    2. Tobuscus: DSP has had multiple frauds with Toby Turner. In 2012, DSP was pissed that ads appeared on his videos that were advertising content by Tobuscus. In 2016, Toby Turner had personal issues that were going on, and viewers wanted DSP's thoughts on the matter. He posted up a video as a result, which got mainly negative reviews by fans and haters alike. He managed to take a story about a woman possibly drugged and raped by Toby and turned it into a 24 minute video complaining about his own problems and whining about how he is treated. Only a small part of the video actually has DSP's thoughts on the subject. He said, "I don't give a fuck about Toby Turner."
    3. EventStatus: In 2014, EventStatus criticized many of Phil's actions and challenged his claims of being a "former pro-fighting game player". EventStatus challenged Phil to a match saying he will give Phil as much time to prepare as the latter wants and the loser will permanently leave all social media. Both fans and critics encouraged Phil to take the challenge but those who did were banned. Phil declined and insulted EvenStatus, saying that this was done as a way to get attention.
    4. ReviewTechUSA: Him and DSP have somewhat of a relationship on YouTube, but nothing big has ever really happened between them. On November 19, DSP ranted about low stream attendance on his Pokemon Moon live stream, and this event caused controversary. ReviewTechUSA called him out on it, which brought a bunch of new haters DSP's way; the following day, DSP made an apology video.
    5. AlphaOmegaSin namedropped DSP in a Street Fighter V rant video in 2016, making DSP seemingly a infamous rage-quitter in fighting games. DSP claims this to be completely false, and claims he never raged-quit in his life in fighting games. He first addressed this in a pre-stream video, and he got into a Twitter war with Omega later on. DSP then posted up a video to clear the air.
  18. 2013 was a very big year of negativity for DSP, including the birth of "This Is How You Don't Play" videos. As a result of this, he posted up a video titled "Addressing the Negativity" which is one of the most controversial things he ever did, claiming that everything said about him was either slanderous or exaggerated, that those who 'hate' on him do so to "jump on the bandwagon". He said that his negativity on YouTube has now become "online bullying." He also talked about the PC that was built for him in 2011, which is a situation that people bring up when it comes to negativity that surrounds DSP.
  19. For his 2013 Christmas Special, Phil created a video parodying 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas'. With his own written song lyrics, he tells the story of how a jealous Troll, who lives in his grandparents' basement, dedicates his life to hating on Phil and creating This Is How You Don't Play videos. But, just as the Grinch fails to steal Christmas, the Troll fails to stop DSP who continues playing. The Troll represents DSP's 'detractors', at least how he views them, and their supposed dedication to ending DSP out of jealousy, causing the video to be heavily criticized for its misrepresentation of that group and insults. The video's lyrics have also been criticized. In one segment, he sings "If you said this shit to my face, can you guess what I'd do, Mr. Troll?" and plays a clip of Phil punching a small piece of cardboard. Another segment had the lyrics "If I had the chance to be filthy rich and going back in time to prevent your birth...fill up the DeLorean!"
  20. Phil had also gained notoriety for allegedly having recent parody videos taken down with the help of his Machinima contract. The resulting backlash he received from people on social media caused him to go on a twitter meltdown, hurling numerous profanities at each and everyone involved including Slowbeef and TotalBiscuit, the former of which uploaded a video montage of people parodying Phil's persona while the latter took another stab at Phil via a video comment using the writing style of said persona. As a result of the recent drama, Phil's potential audience took yet another hit.
  21. For several years, Phil had been known to bash the extremely popular game Minecraft and people who enjoy it, even using the phrase "you probably play Minecraft" as an insult, though he never played the game himself until in early 2015, in which through Patreon, the Patrons had voted Phil to play the game he once never even thought of playing.
  22. During a Mortal Kombat X stream on May 10, 2015, Phil was approached by a viewer regarding an incident that occurred two years ago involving an altercation between PandaLee and people on Twitch. This instigated a very hostile reaction from Phil, leading him to insult this person, threaten him with physical violence, and encourage his fans to cyberbully him and spam his inbox. The resulting backlash was so immense that Phil had to make a public video apology in an attempt to clear the air surrounding the issue. But, while he apologized for his volatile reaction, he did not apologize for threatening said individual nor did he apologize for encouraging his fans to cyberbully him. He even claimed that this was a plot to have him react like this to slander him.
  23. Phil has been known to go on angry tirades on Twitter, insulting more successful youtubers and well as anyone who has a different view than him. One notable incident: a fan of DSP tweeted that his mother had recently fallen ill and Phil's videos helped him feel better. Phil did not respond to this tweet though he did respond to a question involving his schedule. A Twitter user known for criticizing DSP responded to the tweet and expressed his condolences. When Phil heard of this, he called it harassment and bullying and encouraged people to flag all the critics tweets so Twitter Support would shut down his account.
  24. Fans and critics alike take issue with Phil's usage of Patreon. He has, on several occasions, failed to live up to the promises he makes. One instance was his promise of 7+ hours of Crash 2 gameplay if given enough money. After reaching that goal, Phil played for less than five and a half hours and said he would only continue if donated more money. A more infamous instance was the reboot of Project 7. He promised that if enough money had been donated he would reboot the series and would include the names of his highest payers and would show the progress made thus far. However, after reaching the goal, Phil announced that he would still postpone Project 7 and would not refund the money given but would thumbs down the video instead. Phil has also developed a policy that he would not perform any of the reached milestones unless it is several hundred dollars above the mark. He claims that this is done to counter false and dropped patreon pledges. He has began to only allow those who have pledged to his patreon to play him in online multiplayer because of recent 'trolling'.For 2017, DSP wanted Patreon money to buy a new PC for gaming, as well as a PS4 Pro. He set his Patreon goal to $2800, more than twice what it was previously; however, after a few weeks he removed this goal because it wouldn't happen, realistically.
  25. On September 2016, Phil streamed Banjo Kazooie, a game voted as part of the Patreon Goal. He played it for 4 hours and had help from the Stream Chat. From that moment onwards, he never streamed it online again, and instead played the game offline, with many people finding out he was using a guide to speed through the game and know all the secrets. Some people accused DSP in the comments of parts 9-12 of the playthrough that he was using the stream chat for help. DSP went on a triade at the beginning of part 16 of the playthough saying that he wasn't using the stream chat anymore after the first streaming of the game. However, DSP did receive messages from viewers who told him certain things in the game, such as using the gold feather power to defeat ghosts, an ability that DSP never used until it was mentioned to him.
  26. DSP abruptly and acrimoniously ended the playthrough for Persona 3, which was a Patreon's Choice Playthrough, on August 1, 2016, being unable to defeat the final boss. DSP got $1,250 dollars for a playthrough that he didn't end up finishing, which has gone on for several months and ended at 166 parts. Fans and haters alike were both upset at this, especially considering the fact that DSP was playing the game on easy level.
  27. Phil's spending decisions have come into question. He often talks of his back problem and his inability to afford a treatment. He also often talks about the difficulty he has paying off his bills and mortgages. Despite this, he has taken vacations with his girlfriend and staying at executive suites. He also possess numerous models and action figures that had occupied most of the space of his original condo. He was selling some of these models at high prices, but he gave up since around late 2015. Phil also claims that he can't afford certain things, while at other times, he buys things that could cost a lot.
  28. Phil has criticized people who get advanced copies of games before their street date and play them before street date, saying that everyone should get a game and play it at a similar time. However, Phil has gotten games in advance himself, and has broken street date before as well.
  29. In 2017, DSP has decided to approve certain This Is How You Don't Play videos for his KOGaming channel, in a similiar way to accepting Community Submission edited videos for the channel. However, viewers have been critical of this choice, because of how Phil has treated TIHYDP videos in the past and what he has said about the people who have made them before, including saying that such video have supposedly nearly gotten him killed and calling anyone who has created one, mentally ill children.
  30. Phil's relation with PandaLee has also become a source of controversy. Not only have fans and former fans objected to her attitude and commentary, there is controversy over when Phil started dating her. Phil has repeatedly insisted that he only began dating PandaLee after she reached legal age but a number of people who claimed to have known Phil in real life claim that he and PandaLee have been dating long before she reached legal age and have simply kept it it a secret. However, the validity of any of these claims from both parties have yet to be confirmed.
  31. Recently, Phil's treatment of Leanna has become quite controversial. While many viewers, fans and haters alike, still take issue with her they have also taken issue with how she has been treated under certain circumstances. On one occasion, Leanna was sick and had to stay in bed all day, Phil had her get up and cook him dinner despite her condition. Another time, Leanna had a panic attack and had to go to the Emergency Room in response. Fortunately, her condition was not serious, but Phil was angered by this since he now had to pay the bills for sending her there and publicly said if such thing were to happen again, he would not let her go to the ER.
  32. DSP's fans have also become a source of criticism. To counter the rising number of groups exposing or criticizing Phil's actions on the internet, many of his fans have created channels to supposedly expose the actions of those groups, often using similar names. However, the videos posted on said channels are often slanderous and often makes accusations with circumstantial and sometimes no evidence. This has caused at least one channel, DSP World Order, to be terminated due to repeated and severe violations of its terms of service, though another channel with the same name has been created. Other fans, while not creating separate YouTube channels, have gone to videos criticizing DSP and attempted to instigate fights, make similar baseless accusations, and threats of violence. YouTuber AggyPlays once asked Phil to do voice acting for a machinima series she was creating. However, despite accepting the role, she reported that he was difficult to work with. Upon hearing this he accused her of using him to get attention from the "hater" community and his fans soon began to harass her over this. In a separate incident, a fan claimed he had proof that the Sons of Kojima were involved with DSP's swatting; his proof: DSP was swatted on a Wednesday and the Sons of Kojima hold a podcast every Thursday. Attempts to start debates simply resulted in more insults.

End of Friendship With John Rambo & Howard

After Phil moved to Washington, his contact with John Rambo and Howard declined until it stopped entirely. During this time, John Rambo created a Paymeton parody. Many of accused that the parody was directed toward Darksydephil, causing many to wonder what happened between them, but John insisted that, while Darksydephil was a source of inspiration, the parody was aimed at youtubers as a whole who overly relied on Patreon. He also asked that people not make assumptions about events they do not know about and that he rather not talk about what happened to not harm Phil's reputation. Eventually, Phil was asked about it again on an Ask the King episode and said that he has not heard from John or Howard. Phil claimed that he did not know why he has not heard from them and that 'real men' discuss their problems. He said that the only possible thing he could think of was that they were jealous and bitter of his rise in popularity.

John and Howard felt they had no choice but to respond to this and created a video describing everything that happened between them. The original video was flagged and removed by an unknown party though others have re-uploaded it.

John and Howard describe how Andre and Paul, childhood friends of Howard, had attended film school and were interested in starting a project. After deciding to bring Phil in on this, this became Project 7. However, the editing and special effects took a great amount of time and effort. Furthermore, Andre finds out he is going to be a father,making it even harder. John suggested to Phil that he pay them for their effort but Phil said that he had offered to pay Andre and Paul but they turned it down. However, Howard talked to Andre and Paul and discovered that Phil had never offered to pay them and lied to keep the money for himself. In fact, none of the people involved with Project 7 were given any cut. The only person who was paid was John but this was so he could continue to help produce Project 7 since his car broke down and he needed to buy a used one. Howard was particularly irate that Phil then began buying figurines, a BMW, and other luxury items with the money, feeling Phil was making money off the backs of others.

The same was done with the Project 7 T-shirts. They all contributed in the cost of making the T-shirts but Phil made all the revenue and did not offer any of them a percentage.

They talked about how when Scott passed away they informed Phil and asked him to contact them. However, Phil did not respond but created a monetized video on the subject, irritating everyone in their friends group that Phil would try to make money off of the death of another.

Howard recalled that not long before Phil moved to Washington, he called for a final playthrough together. However, Howard had already made plans with his girlfriend. Phil said that if Howard doesn't attend then it solidifies that they are not friends, so Howard had cancel his plans with his girlfriend. But, once Phil moved, Howard had not heard from him. He would send him occasional messages but Phil wouldn't reply back.

John also talks about several times Phil ended up saying something untrue about him on a video. One incident was: after seeing comments praising John Rambo's performance in Project 7, Phil claimed that it was all his idea. John and Howard both confirmed that Phil actually had nothing to do with those parts and were irate that he would make a video talking about it instead of talking to them. John confronted Phil who apologized. Another incident was when Phil wished to play Mario Party with Leanna, though his viewers wanted it with John. Phil responded by saying John does not like games like Mario Party, causing his viewers to send insulting messages to John Rambo about the subject. John confronted Phil again who apologized. Both John and Howard say that Phil would repeatedly do things they dislike and he would apologize after they confront him but made no effort not to do it again, leading them to no longer associate with him, feeling that attempting to confront him about it would bear no results.

They ended the video saying that they still wish Phil the best but if he takes issue with what was said he should contact them, not make a reply video but text them. Phil was originally going to make a reply video but chose not to, saying that the 'haters' would twist his words.
