Bradley Lamar Colburn, better known by his online alias theRadBrad, is an American YouTuber and Let's Player most notable for his video game walkthroughs of various new games. According to YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, Colburn is one of the platform's "top gaming creators." Since he started his journey as a content creator in 2010, he has been contacted for interviews by numerous publications.
Publications that have written about Colburn include VG247, VentureBeat, and Rolling Stone (when video game publisher Ubisoft sent him merchandise before the release of Watch Dogs 2). They have also used footage and images from his gameplay videos as examples in their writing. Colburn has been dubbed "king of the YouTube walkthrough" by FMV Magazine.
Both BallerStatus.com and FMV Magazine have interviewed him. Colburn's commentary is very grounded, realistic, and composed, but he is prone to panic attacks and hysteria when under pressure. Colburn typically doesn't care much about the specific plots of the video games he reviews, but he does give his audience feedback and share his thoughts on the gameplay.
