Adam Sessler is probably the most recognizable games journalist in the country. He’s been talking about games in front of a camera for over a decade at G4 and Rev3 Games. After all that time, he’s now ready to move on.
Sessler announced today on his personal blog that he’ll be leaving Rev3 Games to “explore new opportunities:”
After some incredible achievements over the last year and a half, I am announcing my departure from Rev3 Games and Discovery Digital Networks. Sixteen years in front of the camera covering the videogame industry has brought me to a point where I am ready and desiring to explore new opportunities. While I would never say no to doing one more review, interview or opinion piece, the time feels right to explore new avenues inside of gaming that help further the medium. The audience, my wonderful and talented co-workers and the last year at Rev3 Games will forever be appreciated for what was accomplished. There never is a right time to part ways with something that has become as natural as breathing, but things do end and now feels right.
Adam Sessler joined Rev3 Games two years ago after he was let go from his position as the host of X-Play on G4. Soon after, G4 announced that it would be abandoning its gaming and pop culture coverage in favor of becoming a men’s lifestyle channel. X-Play continued for a while after Sessler left the show, but it certainly never felt the same. Since then, Sessler has been covering the industry for Rev3 Games as part of the Discovery Digital Networks.
If anybody deserves a break from video game journalism, it’s certainly Sessler. So where is he heading to next? Kotaku reports that his personal Twitter account now says he’s the president of TheoryHead, a “consultancy for entertainment and media.” While we can’t say for sure Sessler will be consulting on games, it’s safe to say that he’ll still be involved in the industry in some fashion. After all, he’s accrued a lot of knowledge about the industry over the years and that knowledge will be invaluable to developers and publishers alike.
