John Bain passed away at the age of 33

Game critic John Bain, more commonly known by the aliases TotalBiscuit and the Cynical Brit, passed away on 25 May 2018 after a long battle with cancer. Bain was 33.

Bain revealed in 2014 that he had been diagnosed with bowel cancer and was receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The cancer went into remission but later returned, spreading to his liver and his spine.

In 2015, he announced that his cancer was terminal, though he continued to work on his popular YouTube channel and The Co-Optional Podcast. Bain had announced earlier this month that he was retiring from games criticism as a result of his failing health.

Bain’s career as a game critic and personality spanned more than a decade. His YouTube channel, which was home to TotalBiscuit’s podcast and game impressions, had more than 2,2 million subscribers. Bain was also a top Steam curator, garnering more than 800,000 followers.

Our sincere condolences go out to John Bain’s family and friends.
