[[caption-width-right:350:The ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' avatars of [=GameChap=] (l) and Bertie (r), in the [=SkyBlock=] Rumble map]]
->'''[=GameChap=]''': I say what ho, chaps and chappettes! [=GameChap=] and Bertie here!
->'''Bertie''': Yes!
-->-- ''The intro to just about [[OnceAnEpisode every video.]]''

[=GameChap=] is the name of one of a duo (named [[GameChap AdamzoneTopMarks]]) dedicated to creating game mod reviews. The two make various ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', and other miscellaneous [[InsistentTerminology videograms]]; esually detailing whatever patch or interesting mod they find. The duo's British accents and over-the-top reactions to events (such as any effect of the Herobrine mod) make each video one [[CrowningMomentOfFunny CMOF]] after another.

Their [=YouTube=] channel can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/user/AdamzoneTopMarks here.]] Be warned; you will laugh. They have a secondary channel which you can watch [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVLXisr9rz2-09JJWINqH8Q here]].

They have made their own forum, which can be found [[http://gamechap.net/ right here.]]

!!Tropes:

* ArtifactOfDoom: Squiddington's flower; a yellow flower that resides next to Squiddington's small pond. Removing it causes him to fly into a rage.
* BerserkButton: In at least one video, Bertie has had an [[IncrediblyLamePun explosive]] tantrum at seeing circles in Minecraft.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Blue bally blazes, Squiddington. ''DO NOT MAKE HIM MAD''.
* BrownNote: People watching have reported going into a cold sweat from listening to them talk.
* CallBack: In episode 16 of Survival Island, GameChap has a nightmare in which Bertie becomes a creeper and kills him. As of late, this has been showing up a ton, such as Bertie making a hissing noise on occasion.
* CatchPhrase:
** "I say what-ho, chaps and chappettes!" is said at the beginning of every video.
** And Bertie's "YES!"
** "Until thennnnnn..." at the end of each video.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: [=GameChap=] was the GentlemanAdventurer who rose at the sight of adventure in a heartbeat, and Bertie was the calmer, more reluctant sane half. Seems they sort of switched roles.
* ChristmasEpisode: They have made a Minecraft version of A Christmas Carol, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnRturffjSs which may be enjoyed here.]] Sadly, neither Gamechap or Bertie appear in it themselves.
* {{Crossover}}: Before their brief LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}} membership, the duo joined the group for numerous PVP contests and livestreams.
* CurbStompBattle: In ''The Walls'', Bertie and Gamechap face off against the heavily-armed and well-armoured LetsPlay/HannahRutherford and LetsPlay/DuncanJones. Not being so well equipped, they do not fare well and die quickly.
* DeusExMachina: In a way, Squiddington. He clearly is some kind of RealityWarper, at least.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Bertie is revealed to be this in the Mob Talker mod spotlights. [=GameChap=], not so much.
* DisproportionateRetribution: If Squiddington gets even SLIGHTLY ticked off, he destroys or damages(or VANISHES) GameChap's house, regardless of whether or not he was actually involved in the incident.
* DoomMagnet:
** That poor NPC village.
** And [=GameChap=]'s house.
** [=GameChap=] himself is becoming one a bit. After revealing that SMP now has Hardcore, in which death=ban, Bertie promptly kills [=GameChap=], who is in Hardcore, by summoning a creeper, [[RunningGag destroying the village]] in the process.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: Bertie. [[SarcasmMode Gee, who would've thought?]]
--> '''Bertie''': "I'm in a Bentley, I'm always driving the right way!"
--> '''Gamechap''': "Mental note: Never, ''ever'' let Bertie drive a car in real life, I say!"
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Hard to believe but in older videos like [[http://youtu.be/oqZXTqsuqZI Quest for the Golden Monocle]], [=GameChap=] would be told by ''Bertie'' of all people to calm down, as it was [=GameChap=] who would be into the spirit of adventure. Also there were times where if Bertie was stuck, [=GameChap=] ''would actually leave him.''
* EldritchAbomination: Squiddington. Just don't make him angry. As one commentator notes, [[RunningGag E]]ven HEROBRINE doesn't dare to touch him.
* FanService: They are known to use sexualized fanservice in their youtube thumbnails and descriptions, despite the content of the actual video itself.
* ForGreatJustice:
** The Golden Sword of Justice in the ''Minecraft'' videos.
** And as of late, the links in the description to their Twitter and such are called "Links Of Justice".
* GentlemanAdventurer: Both of them.
* HighClassGlass: Again, both of them, as you can see above.
* LighterAndSofter:
** Their ''Sim City'' videos, which don't feature explosions, wild car chases, or other intense disasters. Yet.
** Bertie is dead-set on getting a nuclear power plant. Oh dear.
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Dear Notch, Bertie.
* OhCrap: Bertie's reactions to hearing anything about Herobrine updates pretty much boils down to this.
* OnceAnEpisode: Bertie usually blows something up [[SureLetsGoWithThat accidentally]] in each ''Minecraft'' video.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping:
** In part 1 of their Sea Of Flame playthrough, Bertie switches to a redneck accent while jumping towards the first tree. Also lampshaded by Gamechap:
--> '''Gamechap''': "Uhh, Bertie, Bertie, since when did you become a Texan, I say?"
** Bertie has a habit of doing this, as mentioned under ManOfAThousandVoices. He tends to act as several different characters, depending on the videogram, most of which have different accents.
* PersonOfMassDestruction: Again, Bertie. In [[http://youtu.be/tgI9jy9ZDd8 Steve Gets Sued]], Bertie shows up at the last second to defend his case. The defense? A FREAKING GHAST.
* {{Pun}}: Every video tends to end with Bertie making a pun, and as of late, Bertie also makes a pun during the vid.
* QuintessentialBritishGentleman: Indubitably so.
* RunningGag:
** Herobrine and Bertie blowing the village up, while somehow not killing the mayor.
** Also, Bertie opening doors by smashing them, usually followed by a remark from [=GameChap=].
** And somehow, Bertie always manages to [[NeverMyFault find something or someone else at fault]] whenever he does something wrong.
** When they find a bug, Bertie will scream "BUUUGS!"
** Lately, Bertie has shown an obsession with gerbils.
* SchmuckBait: Every lever. And Bertie always takes it.
* StockBritishPhrases: Roleplaying as upper class gents means that they tend to use stereotypical phrases, such as "old boy", and "I say, what ho".
* StuffBlowingUp: A RunningGag is that Bertie blows stuff up.
* TooDumbToLive: Anyone who lets Bertie near any form of lever, switch, button, or tripwire deserves to have the landscape blown up.
* VocalEvolution: The duo's voices were both deeper and slower, sounding like actual gentlemen, over time their voices have sped up and gone higher in pitch, intended for RuleOfFunny.
* WalkingDisasterArea: At the end of nearly every video, something bad happens, [[StuffBlowingUp usually involving bombs]], and often caused at least indirectly by Bertie. Herobrine's infamous E also appears in many ''Minecraft'' videos, resulting in their "EEEEEEEEEEE" scream.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Nearly every written sign in their ''Minecraft'' videos.

* Fanservice: They ''sure'' love putting hot pictures of girls as their thumbnails when appropriate. Ironically, it's ended up losing them a lot of subscribers on perceived grounds of sexism.
