If you are an avid gamer and keep up with gaming news, TotalBiscuit probably doesn’t need an introduction, because his reputation precedes him.
TotalBiscuit is the internet alias of John Bain, who is a gaming commentator and critic. His channel aims to do first impressions of video games. He usually plays the games from anything between 10 and 30 minutes. He commentates as he does so, and gives his opinions and thoughts about the gameplay.
I don’t normally watch a lot of gaming reviews. However TotalBiscuit has built a name for himself in the gaming industry. His word carries a lot of weight. He is a person with a very strong moral compass and good ethical integrity.
Many times, he has spoken out against shady game developers. For example, developers that abuse the Youtube copyright system in an attempt to silence negative reviews of their games. It has almost never turned out well for them. But it’s important to know that censoring of reviews does occur in the gaming industry.
Totalbiscuit’s channel is not only filled with game reviews. Occasionally, he’ll post his thoughts and commentary on pieces of news that are currently affecting the gaming industry. He does a lot of research before formulating his opinions. He also has many years of experience in the industry.
While this channel might not be for everyone, if you would like to subscribe to a gaming channel, this is the one to subscribe to. Over time, Totalbiscuit has built a lot of trust with his viewers, by maintaining his integrity. If you’re looking for a channel to look at for reviews, I can’t think of a better reason to look at his.
Edit: On the 24th of May 2018, John Bain passed away of cancer. This is a great loss for the gaming community. The channel will continue to be run by his wife Genna Bain.
