Adam Sessler leaving X-Play, G4 TV

Adam Sessler is leaving G4 TV for another as yet announced TV gaming gig, according to his representative.


Long-time G4 television personality Adam Sessler is leaving the network for future undisclosed endeavors in the gaming industry, according to his representative. His last episode of X-Play will air later today.

"Adam intends to stay in front of the camera and continue as a key voice within the games industry. He also sings and is available for weddings and bar mitzvahs," Sessler's agent, James Molesky, said in an email, although it was not specified what his next project would be. He will play himself in the upcoming movie, "noobz," this summer.

Sessler's first airtime was back in 1998 as part of ZDTV's GameSpot TV, which eventually became TechTV. Sessler was one of the few who survived the massive layoffs at TechTV when it merged with G4 in 2004. He has also done the Sessler Soapbox podcast, and Feedback with other G4 correspondents. Sessler has also served as EIC of games content at G4.

While Sessler is best known for his time at G4, he did catch the eye of plenty of non-gamers in 2010 when he appeared on a billboard in Los Angeles wearing nothing but a pair of Gunnar gaming glasses.

      Wow he out lasted them all. He also seemed to have a genuine passion for gaming so good luck to him. Have not watched G4 in years so I have no idea if this a great loss for the channel or if anyone should care.

        I dont know what hes like in real life, or if the way he acts on-screen is real or an act, but he was very very annoying. I havent watched x-play, or even g4 in a couple years now...but he was certainly one of the reasons not to tune in.

          I thought he was hilarious in Weekend Confirmed 12; I still listen to that episode now and then from how goofy it was. The one with Patrick Klepek was another classic.

      Over a contract dispute. I wonder what he wanted.

      I wonder if they will cancel X-Play and abandon any pretense at covering gaming.

        that ship has already sailed. When Comcast made X-Play reduce there reviews from 20 mins to 3 mins.

      Haven't watched the channel in many years now, but when I did it was either for XPlay or The Screen Savers. Good luck to him. He seemed to be one of the last genuine people on there.

        Yeah, after the G4/Tech TV merger and the subsequent layoffs, he was one of the only ones who I thought still really knew what he was talking about.

      Its crazy, because just today I was thinking to myself "I wonder if Adam Sessler is still at G4 and if they still do X-Play...I'm really curious, but not curious enough to ever tune into G4 to find out".
