i loved this video so much, it is a great start to gaming-mas which is a terrible name tbh.
this felt relaxed and like real, genuine d&p to me. the lack of many jump cuts and overall atmosphere was so nice, even amongst the stressfulness of the game it felt calm. when phil mentioned he used to play this game with his family at christmas and is now playing it with dan (i’m being trashy ik) but this felt so cute. i can totally imagine the lester’s (and dan) playing games like this around the holidays and .
a couple timestamps because i love this video a lot:
0.25 - the "over the top" decorations are amazing the background looks nice and makes me feel festive even though it’s only the 1st rip
1.04 - “something really cute that we were inspired
to make.” saying inspired - inspired by what dan #plushgate jk.
1.20 - his “little shoess” comment sounded like talking to/about a baby (sorry this video made me in a really trashy mood apparently .)
1.38 - “thinking about what me and my family did in the festive season..” idek why this makes me emotional but it does. something about phil playing it with his family and then playing together is just really sweet to me.
3.28 - howell-lester .
3.40 - phil dabs :facepalm: and then makes himself laugh. smh phil, don't start this.
4.51 - wanking phil moment .
11.05 - dan taking the controller and clicking ‘opera.’ this is my favorite bit of the video dan’s such a little shit
and then phil’s “you idiot” after was so funny & cute.
13.31 - stuck out to me (for some reason) as how they act around each other off camera. dan correcting how to say odysseus and the “you don’t know that” then “really, how do you know that?”
14.08 - bros doing what bros do .
14.37 - i love how they both say ‘marine’ or ‘mountain’ together. this gets me every time even though there are a lot of synchronized moments.
16.33 - calling phil’s mom - incredible part of this video, honestly. everything about it is so great. love how dan leans in and phil’s mom answers with “child”
. i also found it nice that dan is like "hi by the way, how are you?" she responds with "fine. fine?" to which dan answers "yeah, we're
tldr version :
