John Bain, better known as TotalBiscuit, one of gaming’s most popular and influential figures, has died aged 33 on Thursday. Bain was a games critic who did most of his work on YouTube.
Bain had announced earlier this month he was retiring from games criticism as a result of his failing health. He was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2014. The cancer went into remission but later returned, spreading to his liver and his spine.
His wife announced his death earlier today on Twitter.
