Pardon my candor but no fucking shit, dude. Racism is bad and members of the Nazi party might deserve to be punched? What radical fucking notions, how brave must one be to express such opinions publicly?
The problem we have today is, some people believe anyone with a different opinions to theirs is a nazi and racist! Those terms have lost their true meanings thanks to fucking dickheads like Adam Sessler.

Yikes. He needs rehab or professional help asap.

Literally turning into one of those sad ranting homeless people in front of our eyes.

I think it's pretty telling that he was being pretty combative even to the people who weren't trying to give him shit. He's definitely one of the people who hates the industry that he is/was a part of.

He talks about developers that are his friends seems to insinuate they can't do anything wrong. That's the feeling anyway. That further illustrates that developers and people who report on games are waaaaaaaaaaaay too close. Kinda the reason that GG came about. Seems more often than not they're doing PR rather than journalism.

Haha, its funny how Reset hates him for not being PC enough and NeoGaf hates him for being too Sjw. Interesting dynamic.

I talked to him for like an hour last years E3 and thought he was great and very cool guy. Surprised to find out all this shit about him... but then again I dont really give in too much to this whole, "Your internet persona is your everything" thing so oh well.

I want to see the videos that have been removed though, are they uploaded anywhere else?

He will always be cool to me. Don't really care about his political views.

There was nothin else like Extended Play at the time. Discovering it as a kid was like discovering a rare earth mineral.

I don't care either until they use their position as a platform to spout their political views.

Sometimes you have to leave to appreciate what you once had. Never hated the guy. I enjoyed watching his videos, not like there's not enough room for the dude. I'd watch him. Always looking for new/different perspectives on stuff.

Lol when did his SpikeTrap video get deleted? I'm guessing either the whole thing shutdown or they booted him as their PR guy after the blowback.

I really have no opinion on Adam Sessler, never watched his show but you have to give him credit he certainly writes down what he’s thinking and it’s completely unfiltered.

There is something to be admired in that even if it means complete career suicide. I mean honestly who would hire him after that string of tweets. Especially someone who makes his living as a mouthpiece for others.
Just never post on twitter. Only thing I ever post on my Snapchat and facebook is stupid memes and my cat. So many people ruin their lives because they can't understand that once its on the internet its out forever.

He clearly is going through something and before you guys throw stones at him try to find out whats going on. Anyone of us can be in his position oneday and the help from others im sure would be greatly appreciated.
He clearly needs professional help. He is mental and can't control himself. If I was him I would go completely off the grid.

I mean, "Fuck Racism, Punch Nazis" is a sentiment everybody should be on board with, to be fair.
If you just starting punching nazis you make their resolve stronger. I remember there was a black dude who liked to talk to racist people, and he convinced a lot of people to stop being racist.

Found ! This is how you fight correctly a ideology, with words, time, reach... not punches, virtue signaling and certainly not with a t shirt.

That man is a fucking legend. I highly recommend watching his Ted Talks

I don't wish any ill will on the guy, it's been pretty obvious for a while he's likely not in a good place mentally. I think it's obvious with all these "types" in the gaming industry who are always lashing out at random demographics of people for no reason, I think they are really unwell mentally.

There isn't a problem with "fuck racism, punch Nazis" the problem is 99.999999999999999999999999999999999% of people these types call Nazis are not Nazis. They just use the word as an excuse to rage on people they don't like because they have deep seeded pent up anger, likely stemming from longstanding psychological issues.

Sessler tweeted a few days back that Huntington Beach was 70% Nazis. Of course you had people responding how they agree and all that. I've spent time there and I don't think it's 70% white, let alone Nazi.

It's completely lost any real meaning.

It’s a very low intellect thing to do, throwing that word around. It shows a general lack of knowledge of history, lack of contextual insight, lack of understanding of what the word means, and inability to understand people. It’s not something intelligent people do.

And it’s just really rude and disrespectful to say. Imagine meeting a Holocaust survivor and saying “I can relate to your struggle, I live in an area that’s 70% Nazi... Huntington Beach.”

As far as him looking old, well hell, we all get old.

Him being a doxxing prick, yes, he shouldn't be given some kind of platform. I might not like someone else's opinion but if I had a large public presence like him I wouldn't try to put their name and info out there. That's some fucked up shit he did and if he went away forever I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

I actually met him at E3 one year, X-play was a decent show and he seemed like a cool guy, but man i guess you never know with people.

Nowadays is the Era of streamers, he missed that bandwagon. That said I wouldn't mind Morgan Webb on twitch
