Adam Sessler Leaves G4

One of gaygamer.net's faves, Adam Sessler, has left G4.

Our friends at Kotaku reached out to Sessler's representative and received the following response:

Television personality Adam Sessler and TV network G4 are parting ways, with Adam's last episode as host of G4′s "X-Play" airing on the network today, Wednesday, April 25. Adam has been hosting the show since it first aired as ZDTV's "Gamespot TV" in July 1998 and he also served as Editor In Chief of games content at G4. His current projects include starring as himself in the Summer 2012 movie "noobz" and consulting with a film production company on theatrical feature adaptations of video games. 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.

Adam later confirmed his departure via twitter:

Thank you to everyone with your exceedingly kind wishes and thoughts. I think I'll finally take a nap....

Sessler leaves behind X-Play co-host Morgan Webb and Attack of the Show co-host Kevin Perreira as the channel's only remaining personalities from the G4TechTV merger. Webb is now the sole remaining personality from the original TechTV.

In addition to his hosting and editing duties with G4, Mr. Sessler has long been a vocal supporter of LGBT issues in the gaming industry. Last year he chimed in on all of that Dragon Age 2 controversy we couldn't stop talking about. He has proved himself time and time and time again as one of the gayming community's most valuable allies. And one of our best friends.

We here at gaygamer.net wish Adam all the best in his future endeavors!

OMG! No freakin' way!

Well wishes indeed. I'm sure there will be lots of speculation, mostly revolving around the quality of G4's current programming.

Whatever he goes on to, I hope to see his face again soon.

PS Cute pic Tiny

He must be the last person who was still involved on TechTV back years ago. Now all I needs to do is join Revision8 or TWiT and it'll be like the good old times! ;-P

I haven't watched G4 for a couple of years, as it became like MTV & now LOGO, a specialty channel that shows nothing about it's subject. I have never liked Adam nor Morgan.

I basically came to say I liked the pic with SeanBaby, I have always thought he was hot!

Mikey said:

I haven't watched regularly since Olivia Munn left. Adam leaving has pretty much put the nail in the coffin, for me. Kevin and Morgan are still awesome, no doubt, but I just don't feel like watching anymore. Like Bill said above, G4 has turned into MTV/LOGO showing reality shows, Cops, non-stop marathon reruns, etc. RIP G4.

And good luck to Adam! Can't wait to see what he does next. I wish he had his own network. He's super supportive of LGBT people and issues, he's smart, hysterical, and he always comes off as a nice guy. Doesn't hurt that he's adorable too...

::: OMG Noooooooooooooooo!!! :::

I can't even begin to deal with this loss. It's way worse then losing Whitney Houston. What the hell happens now!

I'm devastated, i love adam. No, I LOVE adam and i'm just in shambles... no wonder it's raining and all gloomy outside.

I REALLY SERIOUSLY hope to see him somewhere doing something, X-Play was my show.. he even made me like Morgan, as much as I could possibly like Morgan.... she rocks too but damn, why must things change!

Saddened, deeply saddened:(

Alex said:

Waaaahahahahahaha!!!
LeoNoTik, you are too funny.
Yes. It's sad to see Adam leave, but it's a move he needed.
G4 is going nowhere.
Congrats and good luck Adam, you're the best!!!!!

Seanbaby, baby.

Limeade said:

I have always liked Adam for being such a vocal ally in gaming and such a vocal voice about equality in gaming and respect within the gaming community. His stance on 'trash talking' and removing the hatespeech and slurs. How it does nothing to propel us forward as a community and does nothing but divide us instead of unite us in a hobby for us all to enjoy, etc. So for those things I'll always love, respect, and be grateful to him for.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
