Love him or hate him, Adam Sessler has been a prominent face in the gaming community.
The representatives statement reads as follows:
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.
Kotaku’s sources are saying that Sessler left due to a contract dispute.
As the previous statement notes, Sessler has been a huge part of G4 since the beginning of the network. Not only serving as the host of X-Play, but also recently working as Editor In Chief of Game Content.
Although I rarely agree with X-Play‘s review scores, I have always admired Sessler for his role in bringing video game television into the spotlight.
Where does this leave Sessler’s X-Play co-host Morgan Webb? As X-Play has suffered from cut-backs in the past, is the show in trouble?
With Sessler’s departure, is G4 getting further away from its gaming roots? Are we in for more reruns of Cops and Ninja Warrior?
Do you even watch G4 anymore?
