RIP TotalBiscuit

Recommended Posts

This might be blasphemous to some, but I've never heard of TotalBiscuit.

Actually I do not follow or keep up with any "internet celeb".

What happened?

 

Regardless, rest in piece TotalBiscuit.

GODDAMMIT. This is going to take a while to sink in....

@Koby He's a well known respected video game reviewer and streamer. He was true innovator in the Youtube space, a positive force in the gaming industry, a truly upstanding media personality and a great entertainer.
He was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2015 but that didn't stop him from doing what he loves the most. he put up a heroic fight until the end and went out a champion in my eyes.

For context: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TotalBiscuit

 

He mostly became famous because of his "WTF is.." series as a critic on Youtube where he used to identify gaming titles on a technical level. (or as some would say, he nitpicked. ALOT.)

 

His input was highly regarded by communities, and this led to several indie studios gaining coverage they otherwise wouldn't have (at least not as much), for better or worse depending on what they presented. Some occasions were dire like when SOPA first happened, some being rather hilarious like Day One: Garry's Incident and some being skyrocketing developments which he'd personally help bring to life, like Warframe. (which happens to be one of my all time favorite games as well)

 

But all in all, he was like one of the founding peeps that brought online journalism in the gaming field to whats it become today.

I could be mistaken on this but I think I read that his doctor made a mistake during a checkup. He didn't think that TB's pain in his tail-bone could've been cancer, and it spread because of his mistake. 

R.I.P. TB.
