Adam Sessler Leaving Rev3 Games To Pursue 'New Avenues' In Video Games

Long-time video game critic and TV presenter, Adam Sessler, has announced that he is leaving Rev3 Games and quitting his work as a video game critic.

Going forward, Sessler will focus on “new avenues” inside the video game industry. At the moment, Sessler isn’t discussing his next move, though his Twitter page now describes him as “the President of TheoryHead, Inc. A consultancy for entertainment and media.”

“After some incredible achievements over the last year and a half, I am announcing my departure from Rev3 Games and Discovery Digital Networks,” Sessler wrote of his departure. “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.”

Sessler left G4 two years ago, moving on to the fledgling Rev3 Games in November of 2012.

He’s met with plenty of controversy lately, over issues such as the resolution disparity between Xbox One and PS4 in which many accused him of siding unfairly with the Xbox One and its 720p output over the 1080p output of the PS4 in cross-platform games. That controversy has been dubbed “Resolution-Gate.”

(I think this was all wildly overblown, even if I agree that it’s perfectly reasonable to expect a $499 video game console to perform as well or better than its $399 competition.)

I’ve always found Sessler’s videos to be entertaining and insightful. We don’t always agree, but he’s a smart critic with lots of experience in the industry. Best of luck to him in his future endeavors.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
