Probably because he looks like a dirty old man and the crowd they were trying to appeal to was half his age.

I guess you were not one of the person growing up watching xplay enjoying his sense of humor.
MrCrimson  +   583d ago
Honestly never thought he was funny. Seemed immature.

Sessler was always a genuine knowledgeable person when it came to video games and even other topics he felt the need to touch on. From listening to him so often you can see his passion for the industry and his fans, and i admire that in him.

Sometimes he'll get silly, but then again dont all of us? Stop pretending youre not human, dont judge him for the few times he may have done something silly or immature. Look at the big picture of who Adam is, and he's actually a pretty cool dude.

How about Extended Play? Before it was X-Play. That was the good days. I miss all the gamer shows like Judgement Day. That was my favorite.
Diver  +   582d ago
now he knows how the great people at tech tv felt when they dumped them for morons like kevin p an olivia munn

Adam Sessler was the one Real gamer that G4 had left.

Exactly they were stupid for firing him.

While I admit that I don't always agree with some of the reviews he has done in the past, Adam Sessler is a very intelligent and insightful person in the video game industry. The way he was let go of @ G4 is, to me, a slap in his face and an insult to the many years he has dedicated to that channel. Glad to see that he has found a new home in Rev3games and is able to continue to be a part of the industry.

Wow, that was really professional Adam.
SpiralTear  +   583d ago
Instead of condemning Adam's character like that, you could try and consider his position.

How would you feel if a network you didn't only work for, but one you established a cultural identity with decided to change their image to something much less analytical and meaningful? Then, the network lets you go just because you didn't fit it with their less meaningful mantra? Years upon years of passionate work, down the drain.

I don't know about you, but I'd be pissed off enough to post a tweet too.

I wouldn't say that all those years of work went down the drain. While Adam was helping to establish G4 and G4TV, he was also establishing himself as an educated, intelligent and insightful commentator on the games and entertainment industries.

I am a huge fan of Adam Sessler, but without the platform that was G4, it's not likely that he would command the audience that he does today.

Instead of feeding the troll....well, do anything BUT feed the troll. -Mika- intentionally says things to enrage people, EVERY time.
Enigma_2099  +   582d ago
@-Mika-

So was firing him without telling him, according to your logic.

Why did I just think of Jeff Gerstmann?

Good use of your ONE bubble. I guess it's no surprise you only have one.
fatstarr  +   583d ago
Lol epic almost too nice of a tweet.

I have never seen a company fire an all-star lineup like g4 did.
Dlacy13g  +   583d ago
G4TV was badly miss-managed. I think they hit a level of success and then pressure was put on once they got bought that they were never going to live up to.

It is a bit odd that G4TV fired Adam just months before shutting down Xplay which tells me one of two things. One he may have been making much more money then say Blair Herder (SP?) so they opted to cut him loose to save coin. Or two, they really did think there was a demographic likability issue with Adam and in the face of declining ratings thought the shake up might save the show.

I tend to think it was option 1. G4TV was going down...and they knew it and wanted to cut costs to save as much as they could prior to the change over.

Xplay))))) I wonder whats morgan webb up to this days
modesign  +   583d ago
g4tv wont last. he should be glad he is out now before the S*** hits the fan.
Ron_Danger  +   583d ago
G4 is to video games as MTV is music videos
chukamachine  +   583d ago
I doubt they have the balls for it.

He is funny and knows what he is talking about.
Y_5150  +   582d ago
That tweet was pure gold! Men's channel doesn't have the balls. lol!
BoNeSaW23  +   582d ago
That will help you go far in the industry you bozo. I bet every game magazine/site is lining up for your disgruntled ass!
black911  +   582d ago
The channel isn't about gaming anymore.
MultiConsoleGamer  +   582d ago
G4 always sucked.
MasterD919  +   582d ago
G4 literally destroyed itself. COPS, Knight Rider and Quantum Leap followed by 9 hours of Ninja Warrior and Campus PD? And Karate Kid or Commando movie re-runs on weekends...

It's all there. Clearly, they were targeting time-traveling teens from the 80's. We get that.

But when Sessler and Perriera left you knew it was the end of that channel. RIP to the hosts and good riddance to the network, which is clearly one of the worst run networks of all time at this point.
wikia  +   582d ago
I still remember the dark pre-internet time of my life when G4 was still called tech-tv and x-play was the only source of reviews.
Ah...those where the times.
Now it's all cops reruns and whatever crap they have to appease whatever target audience they aiming for.
RIP G4 and good riddance.
yeahokchief  +   582d ago
THEY TERRK URR JERRRBS! DURKA DUR!

but seriously I have nothing against this guy. it would indeed be interesting to know how the money is exchanging hands behind our games.
mochachino  +   582d ago
I never thought Sessler was funny, but honestly none of those G4 people were. I did and do think Sessler is an honest and fair game/game-industry critic who doesn't pull too many punches and pander to publishers. Also, I think he is a true gamer that wants to see this industry develop in a mature way.

Can't ask for more than that in this industry full pseudo journalists.
Stoletarts  +   582d ago
Despite his fame, Adam Sessler is an extremely polite and approachable person face-to-face. While you might not always agree with his views or commentary, he is very collected and genuinely sincere to his fans. I was fortunate enough to meet him and was blown away how approachable he was while many other equally or less famous 'Gamer Celebrities' had their noses turned up. His comment on Twitter is pretty tongue-n-cheek and seems to indicate just how shaddy G4 handled their layoffs.
Smokingunz  +   582d ago
I cant believe they fired him! He was the best gaming host they had! Smh.what a shame. I think he shoukd start his own shiw.good luck adam, you'll make it.
BoNeSaW23  +   581d ago
Since this thread is dead and no one cares about adam and it is headed to the archives, I would like to add, ADAM YOU ARE A ASS CLOWN!
