Jim Caddick, formerly known as James Caddick, known online as Cuckdickanus is a britfag gamer. He spends his time going to flea markets. There he buys Playstation and Playstation 2 games he never in other cases would have bought. Then he believes he is saving money. When he does not do this he makes derivative, generic, uninspired and truncated video game reviews and coverages. He is also very self-absorbed, mentioning at every opportunity that he doesn't drink or smoke, like he's better than you. His videos, once half-decent, have now grown stale after he set himself the daunting task of quitting his proper job and uploading every week, and many fans have complained. His replies to these complaints normally go something like 'stop complaining, my videos are great'. For example, one video features him painstakingly faking being drunk, which, you've guessed it, contains numerous mentions of the fact he doesn't drink. He also has a girlfriend 12 years his senior, who has three children. (He started dating her when he was 18, meaning he was dating a 30 year old who had two kids when he was a teenager.) Fans have noticed that he is unknowingly fucking up these children by making videos where he shoots them, making a 7 year old play violent video games, and making them flip the bird in photos he takes of them.
—Caddicarus, My top 10 games that I don't like but everyone else does.
Caddicarus' show shares many elements from the shows of various famous contemporary shitty video game critics. It seems as if he directly has stolen ideas from his peers. The most blatant example of this is that he imitates JonTron's swift sudden screaming comments. There is nothing inherently wrong with imitation, or even plagiarism. It is great to be inspired and learn from another's example (unless those who you're imitating are crap, but that's another story). Every good writer must, however, eventually come to the following conclusion: "Just like in my private life it is only possible for me as a writer to be myself. Some will like me and some will not. There is no pleasing everybody." This is precisely what Caddicarus has not done.
In 2016, James started a new show on his channel, which wasn't very well recieved. He recieved constructive comments detailing the problems with said videos, but instead of accept them and try to better himself at making these videos, he went on a Twitter rant and attempted to guilt-trip his fans.
Yes, it appears that he has truly gone off the deep end. If you would like to read the harmless comments yourself, go ahead.
