    My thoughts on the state of DSPGaming

    I know but it can't be that he has more likes yet low views and more shares,unless phil is referring to kogaming, it's simply impossible on dspgaming I also realized that no matter what WE the audience tell phil, it won't get through to him. We need gordon ramsay to lay the truth to phil and help him

    Actually I think that they're coming from KOgaming only

    It's always suspicious when someone begins to guilt trip you to give money. I just can't grasp how difficult it would be for somebody who has a business degree to not be able to find a job on the West Coast

    I'd also like to advise phil that his jealousy against other youtubers really won't help him gain any new followers. IF youtube is glitched or bugged as phil claims then, I don't know, that would explain as to why they also opened patreon accounts

    Yet the problem is that other youtubers don't create content that can be used against them. Not all youtubers rage or get frustrated in areas which are not intended as frustrating or rage inducing levels. Other youtbers don't call everything bugs or glitches, nor do they take them as seriously as phil does when they encounter them. I highly doubt that people who end up taking their time to produce TIHYDP videos, make money anywhere near the required amount to hire a lawyer for any legal action. Second, there is a thing called 'fair use' which applies to everyone, even if you don't like. I also hope that you understand that phil is not triple A game reviewer nor is he being asked by a triple A developer, he's being asked by indie game developers. They don't have the financial backing to provide large sums of money so when they ask you to showcase their game, its usually filled by your own opinions.

    insightful youtube comment

    This was posted on phils' video "The week in preview, Oct 23, 2016" It's extremely long but I view it very insightful "DSP, I hope you read this because I am giving you honest criticism because I used to be a long time fan of you for years, since back when you had 25000 subs on Darksydephil all the way until only a few years ago on DSPGaming, and though I do not follow your channel any longer I do not want to see your channel fail. I'm sad to hear that your business is not doing well but unfortunately it is a culmination of many mistakes and a lack of receptiveness of feedback from your viewers and fans for several years that is resulting in the downward spiral of your channel, and there are some glaring and very fixable problems in the way you run your business that could possibly help you make a comeback and be one of the bigger YouTubers again, so if you do read this I would just ask you to read it until the end and just consider what I have to say; I am not trying to attack you, I only want to offer advice. Firstly, for years you release content that you refuse to edit down because it's your "style" and you want to give the "true experience of the game" when to viewers it appears that you only refuse because it would mean more work for you and less videos per game, meaning that there are long periods of boring and often frustrating segments for the viewer that they have to suffer through or skip; so you basically refuse to adapt to the market demand and lower the quality of your content as a result in exchange for less work, which is why you are not and have not for the last several years grown in any significant amount. Secondly, as a gaming personality you must interact with your viewer base and you do do this but this entails occasionally receiving negative criticism; you do not respond well to negative or, in my experience of watching you, any criticism. I have seen you treat your viewer base quite frankly worse than any YouTuber I have ever scene. I and many others quit watching your channel because of this tendency, the instance that pushed me to do so being a video you once made directly insulting your viewers that are in any way critical of you, calling them "haters" and writing off their feedback, and telling them they can "go fuck themselves" and leave. That is not professional behavior for any business owner or public figure and you consistently ignore your viewers feedback and often retaliate by banning any critical comments and blocking those people, to be honest I would not be surprised if this comment gets blocked as well, and unfortunately this behavior has gained you an earned reputation that you, to my knowledge, refuse to acknowledge or correct to this day; in fact even in this video you state that you "tried your best to listen to feedback from people," but that is simply untrue and the stagnation and slow decline of your channel should be evidence of that to you. I have one final point and this is the key issue that I believe you have and is at the core of all of the problems that you are having with your business: you absolutely unequivocally refuse to accept responsibility for the downfall of your channel. Even in this video you list everything that you believe has held you back but when it came to yourself you state you do not believe it is your fault for the lack of growth in your channel, which is probably why you are having such a hard time understanding where things are going wrong. DSP, this is 100% your channel and it's success or failure is nobodies fault but your own, you can't take credit for every success and absolve yourself of every failure, that is a toxic mentality that will do nothing but hold you back in life. I believe this is the most key issue because if you address your own responsibility in the downturn of your channel then you can begin to fix it, instead of blaming outside factors out of your control. I believe you have a few other tendencies that turn away some viewers but I will not address these because, though some people find them off putting, nobody is perfect and to comment on them would turn this into an attack on your personality and your own personal style, which is not the intention of this comment. If you would only listen, or at the very least not respond aggressively to negative feedback from your viewers, haters or not, and would attempt to adapt to the demands of the customer, being the viewer, instead of holding on to the tendencies that are dragging you down then in time you may start to see a growth in your channel again and could possibly see a breakthrough and get into the millions of subscribers which you have always had the potential to do. But if you do not begin to adapt and be more receptive to your customers then unfortunately your business will inevitably fail; take it from Einstein, the definition of insanity is "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." I wish you the best of luck DSP and I hope against hope that you do begin to address these problems and that your channel makes a comeback." This comment was posted by See The Light

    Isn't ssohpkc technically providing similar content though? Target audiences. That's what phil doesn't understand. He doesn't understand that if a business does not have a target audience, it simply collapses. I also want to note that it seems phil changed his tone completely after reaching the patreon goal and is giving the notion that he simply doesn't need to change

    Well, your not the first nor the last to provide such experiences, even without bias. The only people that make a game look good are ACTUALLY paid by triple A developers, and such cases are few.They are few for a reason since developers would view this as an investment and wouldn't want to give money to smaller less popular youtubers

    My thoughts on the state of DSPGaming

    Yet in the past months of 2016 you completely make a different notion when you 1)constantly ask people to pledge and remind them of your financial status and 2) complain frequently of how bad a game is during the playthrough.. I can't name a single game out of 2016 which didn't make it look like you were about to rage . I can't imagine how anyone would have fun when they constantly get frustrated on levels frequently. You can't say that games followed a 'predictable' formula when you yourself, before the release of triple A titles in the later half of this year, said that once the releases begin to come out then everything would pick up.Even if these games are unoriginal or bland, it doesn't explain why other, even smaller, youtubers gain more views and have a high level of interaction. Yes, they also point out flaws with the game if they experience them,they just make it more appealing or entertaining. That doesn't mean they make a clown of themselves, they just don't take it seriously. Your response to him technically makes it look that you are very unwilling and very unlikely to change

    You say that the site became "commercial" and the "day job" for other people, yet you view it as and refer to it as a 'business' yourself.Phil, I hope you really understand this, but unless you actually change, you will be digging a very deep grave which patreon won't save you. You were able to change from a handheld camera so why not take the extra steps to keep yourself afloat considering the endless waves of actual competition.You also say that you enjoy doing this, but i'm sorry the last couple of months are starting to show that your doing this purely as a business rather than a profitable, enjoyable hobby

    My thoughts on the state of DSPGaming

    I would like to point out that the only time developers request you to praise its game is if your an actual big title reviewer. In phil's case, like all smaller playthrough channels. they'll just ask him to showcase the game.

    Indigaming studies

    yet does he not advertise himself on the game developers content with patreon and pandalee's soaps. As I said, if you're strapped for cash to a point that endangers the channel, you end up making the choices that will keep you afloat in the end.Being slightly hypocritical is nothing new and everyone's done it at one point

    Indigaming studies

    I have a question. If phil is completely strapped for cash to a point where he worries for the future of his channel, why does not immediately accept the offers of 12 indigaming studies? Did he make that up to get people to pledge(I also pledged $5)? Don't tell me his dignity prevents him from accepting considering his public shaming of people who paid extra to play battlefield 1 early yet bought the season pass to dark souls to just play it early himself. damn you auto correct
