DarksydePhil | Down the Rabbit Hole

  • Published on Jun 5, 2017
  • After an early RUclipr finds unexpected fame and turns his hobby into a career, his poor decisions and his fanbase slowly dismantle him.

    A couple of notes:
    First of all, Phil doesn't live in a Condo anymore, it appears he purchased a two-story home in Seattle.
    Second, a few of his friends approached Machinima looking to get him partnered; they didn't seek him out.
    Third, he deleted the videos which lost him his viewership, not just setting them to private.
    Fourth, people alleging to be a part of Laveria Media approached the Sons of Kojima and stated that when they learned of Phillip's reputation, they ordered Pultavi to pull out of the contract.
    Fifth, the first D in "DDos" stands for Distributed, not Dedicated, as I had stated.
    I left out a lot of incriminating notes about Phillip's history for the sake of brevity.

    Years after the upload, the man is a meme god. In the average mans terms, he is a bigger joke than ever. An accomplishment, but one synonymous with the likes of P.T. Barnum. Bravo to the cowboy clown.

    In all fairness and despite Phil being an absolute tit its not his fault that the Playstation port of street fighter 2 turbo was used at the tournament, if everybody knew it was so bad why did they agree to play it in the first place?.. In all honesty it just sounds salty on the other dudes part...

    this video feels a bit too biased, not even gonna mention his success with overwatch? I mean between YT twitich and his patreon he probably is not making horrible money yet you paint him as a complete failure

    This guy seams like a person who would make suicide, 9/11 "jokes" or make women are objects/ property jokes and then call the people who don't find it funny butthurt or say "omg it's just a joke, learn to laugh for once in your life. Stop being offended!"

    I wonder if it occurred to this person to just go out and get a day job. Oh, and not move to one of the most expensive cities in the country.

    • Dj.D

      He refuses. Phil has all these lame excuses for not getting a job when he's questioned. Even though it would help him. He considers streaming his job and even calls where he plays his office. He also refuses to move to a cheaper place, like an apartment, with the excuse that his internet quality won't be as good for streaming.
      If you look up a video of his recent trophy achievement "Get A Job" in Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled, you'll see what he has to say.

    (3:30) By definition, he was the best player of USA, America, the west ... in that version of the game. You can't deny that he was the best USA player at that time, but you can deny that he is the best of all Street Fighter games, but only in that exact version played.

    • Liggliluff
      Liggliluff 3 days ago +1

      @Dj.D He probably is still very skilled; but have lost his peak performance. Other people have also improved, so he's been worse relatively speaking. Plus several highly skilled players didn't compete in that tournament either.

    • Dj.D
      Dj.D 3 days ago +1

      It still baffles me though. If you look up old videos of Phil playing Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo from tournaments years ago, Phil actually looked like he was skilled. But somehow since then, he's one of the worse skilled players around for all video games. I don't get how one can lose experience so fast, especially since fighting games take a lot of time and skill to master and to do well at tournaments in compared to other games, even if that PSX version of the game is bugged. Even when playing online that very same game, Phil has struggled. Some people think Phil has some kind of mental health issue.

    well he has a "wife" now... his mom wants him to get a job but hes "doing well on twitch" and he is more delusional now then i think he ever was becuase he is trying to be more kid friendly.. but only "mature," ass kissing kids. A very niche market.

    I used to watch this guy a long ass time ago during his peak. I unsubbed from him eventually because he would upload like 30 videos a day and my sub box would just become flooded. Eventually I just forgot about him. Hearing about him years later today is kind of sad cause he never evolved or adapted well. The entertainment industry is a revolving door, just because you were popular ages ago doesn’t mean ppl will still like you now. Come to think of it most if not all of the RUcliprs I used to watch back then don’t even make content anymore.

    Phil is a phag. A useless human being with zero talent at gaming, entertaining or production. He looks like he has fetal alcohol syndrome. I'll bet he is a ginormous pussy who got bullied all throughout his school years. I really wish he'd get swept under the rug and have his platform reissued to literally anybody else with a shred of talent.

    That fan who got banned by DSP has gotten possibly the sweetest case of revenge. First, popularizing the trend "This is how you don't play X" and not only it was enough to start a meme, it also exposed DSP's bruised ego and him abusing RUclip's flagging system. Completely ironic that DSP finally got recognition but not in the best way and it actually contributed to his decline by taking away the attention from him.

    He's a brilliant mastermind that guy.

    Don't know the guy, but it sounds like he's had astandard content creator arc. His youtube career has earned him a condiminium in a major city, but his ego has prevented him making more of his opportunities. On balance, it sounds like he's still doing pretty well.

    Any internet figure with any kind of viewership that uses anger as their draw in point is questionable at best to me. Who on earth would you want to be known for that
