Adam Sessler, respected games critic of more than 15 years, has left Rev3Games. Additionally, it appears as though he will be stepping away from games criticism altogether, as his Twitter profile bio indicates he is the President of Theoryhead, Inc., “A consultancy for entertainment and media.” While he has owned this position for some years now, he will likely be pursuing this avenue full-time, for the time being.
Adam Sessler left his remarks regarding the decision to leave Rev3Games and Discovery on his own Tumblr blog.
After some incredible achievements over the last year and a half, I am announcing my departure from Rev3 Games and Discovery Digital Networks. 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.
This departure by Adam Sessler marks the second big change to Rev3Games over the past few months. Max Scoville left the company this past October to pursue his comedy podcast, Comedy Button, full-time. Shortly afterwards, he was offered a role as a leader of the video division for Destructoid, one which he holds to this day.
As someone who grew up watching and appreciating his incisive analysis and cunning wit, on television and on Youtube, Adam Sessler will be sorely missed in the world of games criticism. Good luck on your future endeavors, Mr. Sessler!
