Man of Doom

John Bain (TotalBiscuit, the Cynical Brit) Dead at 33

Recommended Posts

Wow, ouch. I feel for his family and bothered by how young he passed.

 

While I wasn't a frequent viewer I respected his videos and opinions.

Knew of him and knew of his influence in the gaming community, but I think the only video I ever watched of his was his first impressions video of Brutal Doom. Regardless, I know he meant a lot to a lot of people and am saddened by his passing. RIP.

Passed away from cancer. RIP. 

 

May his framerate always be above 30 FPS and his FOV always be above 90. 

 

Only 30fps? You are spitting on his memory sir.

Wow, shocking news.

Not a fan per se, but still have a huge amount of respect for someone so passionate about our industry.

RIP

It was tough to like him, but I'm sad to see him go, especially of cancer.

I used to watch his videos since around 2010, it's so sad to see him go like this. Rest in peace.

I never watched all of Total Biscuits videos, but he always had strong opinions, and a lot of interesting stuff to say. 

Man, FUCK cancer. I hope a cure comes out and rapes it on a rusty old park bench. If I ever get cancer, I'll go to the dirt nap endlessly cursing it's very existence.

 

I had to let it out, since it is just depressing that some people that are not even in their fourties pass away because of cancer. 

May he rest in peace.

Unless money goes away, that isn't going to happen. Treating people with cancer is a really good way to get loads of cash.

Respect. Even if I don't know totally who was he, it's still a painful death that no one would like to have...

John was a great man and the best critic this industry has ever had. It's tragic to hear he's gone.

Cancer is some awful shit. Every now and again you hear of a cure, and then it just goes away. Cancer is big business, which is a despicable thing. 33 years old - damn. Rest in peace, John.

Man, I used to watch his videos all the time many years ago. Always liked that he would have a look at the PC settings of a game. Sad to see him go.

I only watch a couple of his videos, and yeah, his opinions can definitely improve the way I look at things. It's kind of sad that such a legend being gone. RIP.

I would occasionally watch some of his videos and they were pretty good. However, hearing about this was sad news and he was indeed very young for this to happen.

 

Rest in peace.

Aw man, what a shame...

 

I already knew for a few years that he had cancer, but didn't expect he'd die so soon, and he was only 33...

 

In memoriam.

I was watching Limealicious when the news broke. As you can imagine, I'm rather upset about it. :( I mean, I hardly knew the guy, but I knew of him. I guess he had that effect on people. But... Christ, how many more have to die before the scourge of cancer is eradicated?

Wish he thought about a better game *grumbles*. Still, I didn't expect anything less from him. He helped me get through some tough times. Way back before Doom 2016 came out I was fantasizing what he would say about the game. That's how much I valued his opinion.

 

Good thing he had someone with him when he died. Lots of people die alone in their bed. That must be a pretty terrible fate.

I used to listen to him on WoW Radio, and watched his You Tube videos. And I suspect if there's an afterlife, he's already tinkering with it's options menu.

 

Everyone had known about his condition for quite some time, but it's still a blow to read of his passing. Rest in peace Mr Bain, you've done a man's job sir.
