X-Play was the only thing I saw that truly felt like they loved gaming on TV. Everything out there was 'GAMING IS CORRUPTING THE YOUTH' and other such dribble. School you were mocked for enjoying games (my have times changed), and I felt like I had a connection to the cast of the show. I used to look up to Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb. They were these cool adults who played video games for a living!

Over time gaming became more acceptable of a hobby and by the time Wii released, it was everywhere. I started dropping off of TechTV/G4 around this time as I found online communities (such as 1UP) and just enjoyed playing games with other like-minded individuals online.

Sad to see that Adam has become such a repugnant person. Utterly devoid of any respect and so entrenched in the cult-like mentality of the far-left. Morgan Webb seems to have fared better, at least given how little I see of her or horrendous hot takes.

To me, I will still continue to remember Sessler as the goofy dumbass who hosted Xplay, not the ego-centric cunt waffle who ran Rev3Games, bitched about achievements, and openly promotes harassment and doxxing.
I put Sessler in the same category as Felicia Day. Both of them gained fame and notoriety through gaming related content, and then they turned and shit on the gaming audience that took notice of them in the first place. They're both hypocritical pieces of shit.

Only difference is Felicia doesn't look like she aged 20 years overnight.

Will he do more interviews completely shitfaced now that his time in porn has come to an end? I miss sloppy drunk/high AF Sessler tripping over his own words trying to remember what he was supposed to be asking people. Maybe we'll get more cocain Sessler.



The guy was obviously shorting out and not one person tried to help him.

What a disaster of a human being.

I don't know about you guys, but it's pretty tiring reading just as much shit talk from here instead of Era, Reddit, etc.

Just be decent human beings and move on. Try to love more than just people you find likeable.
I don't think anyone is wishing him harm, but most people just don't think he has any place covering games anymore.

Yep. Felicia is absolutely the same way. Except she is young enough to fall in this trap. You would think someone as old as Sessler would realize bullshit.

She seems to be just a little bit arrogant for my taste:

If I misjudged, then at least it's pretty funny video...

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.
Was not aware he was that SJW/woke. That's sad. I enjoyed X-Play, although it was kind of lame. I'd welcome him back if there were signs that he had reversed his SJW ways, but I'm not sensing it, so I'll pass on checking out his new show.

Here's the thing that seems hard for some to digest today, there is a difference between hatred or attacking somebody...and criticism...

Back in the day Webb and Sessler were tolerable, hell, Sessler even went after Jack Thompson (and rightfully so)

However since then Sessler went off the deep end, like many journalists went "woke" and attacked those who helped give him a soapbox to stand on in the first place, oh and as previously mentioned he's pro doxxing...

He deserves every mean criticism he receives, based on his actions and words...

There is a difference, though, between good beards and his. His looks shitty.
An example of a shitty beard is that Booger2968 or whatever his name is. The goober on Youtube. It looks like he glued his pubic hair to his face and neck. His beard makes those guys looked chiseled.

I watched them all the time on G4. They were cool to watch after a long day working retail. Then when it all stopped, Adam got fired, everything felt like it was over. Then Rev3 came along. I was able to ask him a question over Google Hangouts. We talked about the questionable Kojima and Moby Dick Studios.

Then their return together when Fallout 4 was announced.


I’m not into politics. I never understand why some people get so worked up. I realize it’s important to focus on important issues, but I can’t say I’m interested in politics every day.

Used to watch Adam during Extended Play, thought he was such a cool guy. Followed his work up until Rev3 games. I don't have Twitter so I did not know that weird side of him. It sucks seeing someone you kinda look up to in gaming, turns out to have this other abnormal side. Human I guess, but still odd.

My thing is: I don’t go to gaming news sources to hear about politics. If I want politics news I’ll go to politics sources. I go to gaming news to get away from real world shit. That’s why it’s called gaming.

I hope someone remembers this someday coz I’m tired of it.

I hope he's gotten clean. Seems really messed up in some of those vids. I've never walked a mile in the man's shoes, and I'm not one to hate someone because the internet tells me to. I wish him success, I really do. It's hard to make a comeback if you've burned a lot of bridges. Time will tell.

It's an interesting tool he's peddling, but I wonder since it doesn't really solve any of the problems it claims it can identify, how situational is its true value, given development timelines and depleted budgets. "We could have told you this game was gonna bomb 2 months before release" doesn't help much when 95% of its design is complete and 100% of development costs have already been spent. I guess they want publishers to bring them in early or.. is it guaging public perception of your game they are interested in, and reporting it back to you at specific intervals, or also in influencing perception? Cause there is really a short window I would guess and even if you know interest or sentiment is low or whatever by some point I mean it's likely already too late in most cases to turn the thing into a smash success.

People fuck up and say stupid shit. I just don't think it's that big of a deal. No one is asking anyone to like him, but you don't have to attack him either.
Hey I'm not doxing him. I’m not waiting outside his house to beat his ass. I’m just not gonna watch his shit now that he’s crawling back to the community he so confidently told to get fucked before. He did it before, I’m too old to think he’s not gonna do it again.

Wasn't there some kind of controversy over him being caught posting reviews for games he didn't actually play? I seem to recall someone digging that up after he made his comment about rightfully doxxing people.

He didn't play most of the games he reviewed. That's not a bad thing in his case. He knows the inner workings of gaming. When you work on a show, you have gamers that play and write the script reviewing the game. They then hand it to the TV host to read. He would never have time to be a TV host AND play 100 hour games at the same time. In his interviews, you can see and hear he is a legit gamer, unlike access journoz.

Completely forgot about this massive SJW Coke-headed cuck years ago, until this thread.

Gotta’ love the comments section on YT. Fuck him.

If you want the guy to fail, why bring him up? You just directed more traffic his way. Hits are hits.
