Loved Xplay and Adam and Morgan's insights on games were great. I miss when gaming related stuff was fun. Now its too serious as you have people making reviews that are monotone or people making 40 minute rant videos.

I was such a big fan of his as a teen, he was pretty much my hero, I was totally obsessed with X-Play.

And then he became such a colossal, stupendous shithead, even by modern left standards he's a real piece of work, I've never seen a Twitter that was literally nothing but whining about Trump and conservatives for every single Tweet other than his, even most diehard SJWs Tweet about something else on occasion.

The thing is despite all that I personally would still be willing to forgive him, I actually have missed his input on video games, but he needs a heavy dose of reality and to dial down the SJWism a notch.

You think this guy complains about Trump and SJW's too much on twitter, check out Rob Reiner's twitter! I can't remember when he hasn't tweeted about Trump!!! It borders on insanity...

So I have learned two things from this thread.

One, who this guy is as I didn't hear about him before and second that some guys think a hot woman after the age of 26 is past it bahhahaha.

Which the latter is one of the most dumbest things I've ever heard :p

Yeah, I don't trust the kind of person who buys and wears a "FUCK RACISM, PUNCH NAZIS" shirt to have a solid definition of what either of those things are.
Ditto.

I used to like Adam Sessler back in the Tech TV and early G4 TV days. Then he became unhinged, holier than thou, talked down to his fans and an obvious drug addict. I’m all for second chances, but it looks like he hasn’t changed much.

Dude needs to ditch the old man Amish beard.

Oof... Somebody sure is going loco in quarantine.







Take note of this next tweet:



Apparently Peter Molyneux helped Adam when he wanted to kill himself after getting canned by G4TV.

Anyway the madness continues:























Take note of his responses where he says he isn't bothered by all this, yet proceeds to get even more pissed. Way to go Sessler. You sure showed those trolls.

Jeez. Last time I saw him, he was doing PR for a Friday 13th game that ended up being shit. The hell happened?

My favourite genre of anything is people trolling media whores. Stay mad Sess.

That's quite the series of tweets... One thing to remember is that we're missing the context. You don't see what he's responding to, in most cases. That's not to excuse the rage, but just to say, there are a lot of nasty people on twitter, and I'm sure he gets a lot of shit thrown at him.

But still... That is an embarrassing rage fit. I've gone off on people at times, too, but I've usually been able to reign it in pretty quickly and then take a break. Most of us know when it's better to bite our tongues and step away from the keyboard. I guess Adam lost that ability for a while.

That line about being a barista that avoids having sex in the missionary position due to colonialism was gold.

Five out of five Keks.

He's an angry guy from San Francisco; I've never met anyone from that city that isn't miserable in some way, similar to people from Boston. Yet in San Francisco they are aggressively passive aggressive and in Boston they are aggressively direct. Neither people are ever happy.

And this is why his career is dead. I wanted to off myself too but you don't see me calling people asshats and insulting fans all while acknowledging he is an asshole. What a fucking nutjob.

Well, this is sad. He obviously needs treatment. He also must quit from gaming entirely, it's just not for him anymore and it only makes him miserable.

I honestly don't even know what is he talking about, so it seems like he ran out of coke. Also is funny to see, he has severe dyslexia and also stat he don't stutter when typing on Twitter. He should go to rehab, no back to game industry, he (at least in the near past) tried to.

I really have no opinion on Adam Sessler, never watched his show but you have to give him credit he certainly writes down what he’s thinking and it’s completely unfiltered.

There is something to be admired in that even if it means complete career suicide. I mean honestly who would hire him after that string of tweets. Especially someone who makes his living as a mouthpiece for others.

Him and Morgan Webb had a good show. It was fun and honest. I doubt that honesty in video game 'journalism' is possible today.

I looked Sessler, he did go f'ing crazy on his way out. Lol.

I miss Morgan Webb more. 🥰😍🥰
(It helped that she knew her video game shit as well!!)

Fuck this guy. I remember a while ago he wrote something nasty about Colin Moriarty, for no reason whatsoever. Someone mentioned it to Colin on twitter and Colin said I don't know Adam but I met him a couple of times and our interactions were always friendly. Flash forward to now, and it seem both guys are going through some tough times. Adam decides the way to treat people is to insult them and virtue signal, whereas Colin gives out money to help and game codes to his fans. Wonder who the piece of shit is...

I mean, "Fuck Racism, Punch Nazis" is a sentiment everybody should be on board with, to be fair.

Pardon my candor but no fucking shit, dude. Racism is bad and members of the Nazi party might deserve to be punched? What radical fucking notions, how brave must one be to express such opinions publicly?

It’s a nothing sentiment for nobodies. And as I said in the very post you quoted, the kind of person who buys that shirt and wears that shirt and posts Instagram photos of themselves wearing that shirt is gonna have a real broad, basically meaningless, definition of “Nazi.”

He must've deleted the tweets. I don't see them unless they're from a few days ago.

Probably.

As I've mentioned, I checked his Twitter account and those tweets are not there.

He must've realized he went more overboard than usual and deleted them.

About a year or so ago he had a series of meltdowns on Twitter and I just couldn't hang anymore.

I feel bad for the guy, it seems like he has some legit mental issues going on. I just read that string of tweets and sheesh. Dude needs to disconnect from social media
