Phillip Paul Burnell (born April 6, 1982), better known by his online alias DSPGaming or Darksydephil, is an American internet and YouTube personality best known for his video game commentaries and vlogs.[1] As of November 2020, Burnell has over 190 thousand subscribers and has amassed more than 436 million total video views across all four of his channels.[2][3][4][5]


Burnell launched his YouTube career by creating his first channel, titled "darksydephil", on March 3, 2007. He quickly began uploading video game commentary videos of him playing various different new release games. In addition, he uploaded a video-game review series titled The Hateful Truth, where he provides "maximum truth and minimum bullshit" on games. Some of his other segments include DSP Tries It, where he reviews new fast food products, The Week in Preview, a news segment in which he updates viewers on his video plans for the week, and Ask the King, where he answers fan questions.

In 2010, he created a brand new channel titled "DSPGaming", which features similar content to his previous channel. As of 2020, this is the main channel that he uploads videos to on a daily basis. A separate channel called "THEKINGOFHATEVLOGS" features the continuation of DSP Tries It as well as other vlog-related videos. In December 2015, Burnell started a fourth channel, "KO Gaming", where he uploaded montage videos, countdown lists, and reviews. However, as of August 2018, this channel has been abandoned.

Burnell has been the subject of controversy throughout his career on the internet. Many people in the YouTube community have called Burnell out for complaining and blaming video-game developers as well as other online opponents whenever he makes a mistake in-game. In May 2016, Burnell was setting up a live-stream to his YouTube channel and forgot that the camera was recording, and during this time, the camera captured him masturbating. Eventually, he realized he was live and continued the stream.[6][7] In July 2020, live-streaming service Twitch announced that they had banned Burnell from using their platform for using racist jokes during livestreams.[8][9][10]
