It's been a little over 7 years since X-play ended. I miss it. There I said it. It was a fun show. Like them or not, their reviews felt honest.

I give their show a 4........................................................... out of 5.

I recognise his name from 2014ish GAF but I can’t remember who he is and whether I liked him or not 🤔 Did he work for Polygon?
Adam Sessler

He was famous for being the host of G4TV's Xplay and the site's editor in chief. When he left he became the host of Rev3Games. He quit gaming in 2014 after the whole Gamergate thing.

If you want to know what kind of person he is, I think this sums it up perfectly:

I liked Sessler a lot at G4, but following him on Twitter was a mistake. All I see him do is trash conservatives and trash white people and go off about toxic masculinity and whatnot. I stopped following him a while back it was too annoying.

Another “Shittalk <insert name here>” thread?
Simply pointing it out so we’re all clear what’s happening here.

I have heard plenty of stories from those who have met and know Sessler and his reputation is not great. I have not, nor do I watch his content, so I will leave it there.

He didnt leave gaming, he was community mgr. PR for that developer who made the Friday the 13th game. Remeber all the hype behind that and was like, ummm there is already a game exactly like it called Dead by Daylight. We see who won that battle.

I like Sessler for quite awhile before... well before he turned into an embarrassment.

I don't like casting aspersions but gotta admit he looked like somebody with raging substance abuse issues by the end.

I'm in the same boat, liked his content until he threw gamers under the bus just because we wanted ethics and less political correctness in video game journalism.

God anyone who has video games this wrapped up in their identity that deep needs to get a grip.
What's wrong with that?

Relic from a bygone era. There is zero need for him in the current gaming landscape, honestly. He should find a PR job.
