I just assumed there was a better reason than him disavowing gamers. Gamers are usually a pretty shit group to associate with (your post is a great example).
There were 5 pages worth of posts answering your question as well as comments under the youtube video. I know there are no stupid questions but if that's true then some come really close. Also who are you to presume I'm a gamer?

I just assumed, because of how much of a pseudo-intellectual douchebag you across as (also, because you're posting in a gaming subforum and in a discussion about a gaming content creator). You fit the mold.

I've got better things to do with my time than read through five pages of (most likely) stupid reasoning that probably repeats the OP or screams "SJW!". This conversation isn't really worth the time either. Take care

I used to love watching him and Morgan on X-Play. This is garbage and he's trashtier liberal anyway. Dude has some serious issues.

My only let down so far is there doesn't seem to be much in the way of actually discussing games people are playing. I've only seen a 2-3 game OTs on the front page and they were all for shooters I don't care about (Division 2, Apex Legends and CoD are the ones I can remember seeing). That's probably just due to being a smaller community as Era is still pretty active with OTs for even smaller games. It's just not worth the non-sense moderation and extremism. There's always game-specific sub-reddits--even though I don't like the Reddit format or younger users base that much--when I want to chat about or ask for help in a game that lacks an OT here.
I think it's also reflective of the fact that it's a slow time for games right now. There aren't any big new releases to talk about. I agree that if you're into smaller games, e.g., indies, GAF can be a tough place to generate a conversation. But the bigger games tend to get a fair amount of discussion. The most recent big releases that I remember (Death Stranding and Outer Worlds) both had sizeable discussions. Not huge discussions, but meaty, and personally I find discussion on huge forums to be unwieldy -- you can't really have a back-and-forth conversation, because the crowd is so noisy. This forum is right-sized, at least for me, and of course lacks the authoritarian SJW mods that Reee has.

Stick around and post about games that interest you.

Yeah, I don't trust the kind of person who buys and wears a "FUCK RACISM, PUNCH NAZIS" shirt to have a solid definition of what either of those things are.
It's so virtue signalling, too. "Look at how noble I am. (Please tell me I'm a good boy.)"

that's how the commercials portrayed him as. I HATE ADAM SESSLER. BUT MORGAN WEBB SHRINE!
I actually thought Morgan Webb was a ditz. She often sounded like a complete airhead on X-Play.

Oh the irony. Well for future references reading the thread first will help make you not look like such a child.

So this cunt hates gamers, yet wants back in an industry that us gamers keep afloat?
I hardly knew much about this cock head, yet I saw someone retweet something he wrote making fun of Colin Moriarty. Colin did absolutely nothing to provoke this and, according to Colin on his podcast, met him a couple of times and he was friendly to him. Guy is just a fucking douche bag of the highest order. Fuck him for hating people like me...

This thread brought back memories of me having a crush on Morgan Webb when she was on some show on Tech TV. I think it might have been Screen Savers or that Leo Laporte show.

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.
He blamed this on "exhaustion" 😄

I was such a big fan of his as a teen, he was pretty much my hero, I was totally obsessed with X-Play.

And then he became such a colossal, stupendous shithead, even by modern left standards he's a real piece of work, I've never seen a Twitter that was literally nothing but whining about Trump and conservatives for every single Tweet other than his, even most diehard SJWs Tweet about something else on occasion.

The thing is despite all that I personally would still be willing to forgive him, I actually have missed his input on video games, but he needs a heavy dose of reality and to dial down the SJWism a notch.

I would be willing to give him a chance if he were to admit he had been acting like a total D-bag in the past and learn to accept people with differing povs.

Until he does that though, I will feel free to poke fun at him.

Why does everyone say he's a cokehead? I never heard about all that.

I think this started when he was doing an interview at E3 where he seemed to be shaking so much when talking to a developer that he seemed to be high as a kite or having a seizure from drug withdrawal. He had to be smoking something to say some of things he said during the middle of the decade.

He was also chewing his face off.

Used to watch him just because he was the face of gaming on TV but now he is a relic of a bygone era.

Nowadays we have plenty of better reviewers from ACG to Angry Joe without the SJW politics, Adam Sessler might as well go back to his basement and continue his quest to punch Nazis.

I used to respect Sessler before he went off the deep end. I gave an honest attempt to watch that video. Noped out due to utter boredom after the second chart.

If Sessler can up the production values and get back into his groove I can see myself checking his channel at least somewhat regularly.

He likely would benefit from having a solid co host as swell.

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.
Dude just lost all of his cred back then.
How do you expect people to react to someone who despised them openly and comes crawling back now.
We are all just human beings...

What a trash thread. Well done op
This just made me burst out laughing!

As for Sessler, I remember the dynamic duo; Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb. Webb was every gamer's fantasy girlfriend; a little cute, a little sexy, smart, sassy mouth and a serious gamer! Who could pass that up?!?! And Sessler was pretty cool. They made excellent hosts, up until he left. I trusted Adam's reviews, because we seemed to share a lot of tastes in gaming and liked the same things, and complained about the same things. Ahhh...my childhood, how wonderful it was.

Now, I'm looking at this douche wondering wtf happened to him?!? I guess, when you're on TV and all you have to do is talk about gaming, and that's all you're talking about (not your political views, or views on feminists, trans, etc.), it's easy to like you. But this dude, to me, is just a sensitive cry baby. I wonder how he survived in the 80s and 90s lol. I don't like this dude one bit. The word 'pussy' is the most fitting description for him.

PS - Morgan Webb can still get it!
