Popular Gaming Critic TotalBiscuit Dies, Age 33

R.I.P. John Bain


John Bain —a popular British YouTube gaming critic and E-sports commentator— died on May 24th, 2018. He was 33 years old.

Bain revealed to his large following in 2014 that he had life-threatening bowel cancer, and in April of this year, Bain revealed that his cancer had spread to the point where he would no longer be creating gaming content.

It's no exaggeration to suggest that John Bain —who goes by the screen name 'TotalBiscuit'— was one of the most influential gaming critics on the internet, and considering how insignificant the world of gaming journalism has become, that says a lot. Bain's YouTube channel boasted over 2 million subscribers and over 867 million total views. In addition to having a massive following on YouTube, Bain garnered a large following on Twitch as well.

Shortly after Bain's death, his wife —Genna Bain— posted a poem by Francisco de Quevedo entitled "Love Constant Beyond Death" on her twitter account, in tribute to her late husband.


Bain played an instrumental role in ending the stranglehold that corporate-owned gaming journalism had on the industry. In addition to being one of the most trusted game reviewers of the industry, Bain was one of the biggest names coming out in support of ethics in gaming journalism, believing that many of Gamergate's concerned were valid and deserved to be addressed.

Despite being diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2014, Bain managed to outlive his diagnosis by several years, only officially retiring from YouTube in 2016. His death in May of this year was covered by pretty much every tech and gaming news website in a matter of hours.


Our condolences go out to the Family of Bain, and the fans that followed his career. He will be missed.
