    Wait wait wait...
    Are you telling me, this person, this Phill, gets paid for playing games and making vids about him, playing the games?
    Like, seriously?
    With his level of skills, comments and the horrible vid quality?

    Maybe I'll invest all my money into some recording gear and become rich. If they can pay someone like him, I'm bound to get 'Rubia level wealthy by doing the same.

    IIRC, he began waaaaaay back when as a professional Street Fighter player and built his original reputation/popularity by posting competitive matches and analysis videos about Street Fighter (supposedly he was a genuine SFII Turbo professional).  From there he eventually developed the reputation of "guy who thinks he's alot better than he really is and gets mad really easy."  So, whether he's aware of it or not, he still gets paid because he's been around so long people recognize his name and people like seeing him flip out and rage.

    You'll notice how most of the humor comes from them flashing comments about the video rather than the guy himself.

    I love this guy .
    We all know that he's just acting but he doesn't, the best part is that he actually thinks that his acting is funny .

    I'm considering to subscribe to him so that he may never die silly

    You can't avoid the hints that he's more competent than he lets on.  He kept at it for several parts (showing he didn't rage quit and kept interest), after his cuts you'll see things like how he was able to 1-hand the Drake Sword (showing that he learned to level up and potentially to read the weapon's stat menus), that he'll be in areas like the The Depths or the Parish (showing that he actually did end up beating bosses he complained about), and so on and so forth.

    We're Dark Souls players, we of all people should know that the real story is in what isn't shown to us winking

    EDIT: And I agree with you. As long as you don't take him seriously, he's rather fun to watch/listen to.

    Yeah, its unavoidable to see it .

    At one scene when he tried to figure out how to cast Miracles he fumbled around in the Arunment Menu, there he (accidently) opened the description of the Miracle, but quickly closed it to complain that the Game doesn't explain anything .

    If he really was clueless he would have tried to make the description appear again . I also loved the Damage Controll at the end of his Playthrough .

    It's kind of sad if you think about it .

    A little, yeah...

    Enjoyed for the same reason as the Rage Quit guys.  But "enjoyed" doesn't mean "liked" sad

    I've seen a few videos of his before can't say I really enjoy them. Maybe I'm just taking it too seriously but I don't find anything to like about his comedic style.

    This guy is just an *******. He's too stupid to take the time and care to learn how to play properly and successfully, and constantly blames the game for his shortcomings. It's pathetic when the funniest part of the video is other people's comments about how stupid or incompetent he is.

    Yes because everyones first reactions to playing a souls game, is to praise it's wonderful mechanics and it's difficult but fair nature.

    I know as well as anyone that the game can be frustrating, but to constantly complain about how unfair or unreasonable a certain event/mechanic/situation/area is is taking things much further. I have never felt that anything in Dark Souls is unfair (except for how easy backstabs are), all that is required is to learn from your mistakes. 

    Dark Souls is by no means a perfect game, but every death is the fault of the player, and the player alone*, be it that you tried to take on too many enemies, were not properly prepared for a fight, or chose an inopportune time to try to heal.  


    *invader deaths are an exception, as is being killed by Seath the Scaleless on the first encounter, though both of these can be avoided.
