Jim Caddick (born June 19, 1994), formerly known as James Caddick and known primarily by his username Caddicarus, is a video game reviewer. He's lived in Hereford, England since 2016. Despite reviewing both modern and retro games, Caddy has shown a particular preference for games of the PlayStation 1 generation, his favourite of which being Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, which inspired him to have Abe's hand scars tattooed on his hands in 2015. His all-time favorite game is Bloodborne.
His YouTube page can be found here.
Caddicarus created his YouTube channel on September 10, 2011. Before The Caddicarus Show, he created random skits and music videos similar to that of Tobuscus, Caddy's main inspiration at the time. After he posted his first review Rascal Racers, originally an "audition tape" to get into NormalBoots, his channel started to rise in popularity.
In August 2013, he started a new channel, Caddy's Conundrums, for videos he deemed not appropriate for his main channel. However, the channel has been abandoned as of 2017, and the current Wednesday show Caddy encompasses anything that the second channel offered.
On February 10, 2016, Caddy announced to rebrand his series to gain more control to his upload schedule cancelling Caddy's Retrospectives, Tinker Time and Drive-Thru Reviews respectively, along with The Caddicarus Show becoming weekly. This would be the first major update to the Caddicarus channel, until August 1st, 2018, when Caddy announced that The Caddicarus Show would undergo major changes, such as getting moved to Saturday (for no disclosed reason) and the removal of the Slaughter or Salvage verdict.
