Video game journalists don’t often write articles about others in their field, but in this case we seem to be making an exception.

Adam Sessler is perhaps the godfather of video game journalism, critical thinking, analysis and humour. His weekly Soapbox vodcast, his work on Attack of the Show and the weekly G4TV feedback have all been great sources of information and humour. He is a huger personal inspiration and I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavours.

His representatives had this to say…

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.

“Thank you to everyone with your exceedingly kind wishes and thoughts,” he wrote. “I think I’ll finally take a nap…” – Adam Sessler
