Youtuber dies of cancer aged 33

The PC critic John Peter Bain (known as TotalBiscuit) has died at the age of 33.

TotalBiscuit ran a Youtube channel under the same name where he reviewed PC games in 30-minute videos. His films garnered hundreds of thousands of views as he provided a unique take on his two cents of the games. Below is an example of one of his latest review:

Bain retired from his Youtube channel (which has 2.2 million subscribers) in April due to his cancer spreading from bowel to the liver; he knew that time was ‘running out’ for him and on the 24th May he passed away at the age of 33. Tributes have been pouring in for the famous critic:

Perhaps the most touching tweet was the one that his wife wrote, which included a poem:

David Crooks, on the other hand, took it upon himself to start a Twitter rant (which can be found here) on TotalBiscuit which criticised for giving his games bad reviews. This childish behavior led to Crooks hiding his account out of pure shame.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to John Bain’s family at this time as we have lost truly a trailblazer in video game reviews.
