Two years after leaving G4, veteran games journalist and TV presenter Adam Sessler is now seemingly leaving the field behind entirely.

In a short blog post, he announces that after sixteen years in the field it's time for something new.

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.

That "new avenue" appears to be consultancy, as his Twitter bio now says he's "the President of TheoryHead, Inc.", which is a "consultancy for entertainment and media".

I'm pretty sure some of it has to do with the absolute toxic community that YouTube has. Every time he posted a video review or gave an opinion on something that people didn't like the masses would insult him every way they possibly could. I'm sure it was a much different experience going from TV where the communication is one sided and he has no direct relation to his viewers to YouTube where everything he says and does is instantly viewed, rated, criticized and is directly fed to him.

When he knocked off points on God of War for the Trophy "bros before hoes" he was panned by the internet as some sort of traitor to their brand loyalty and people said that his opinions were invalid for the rest of his career because of that. It's absolutely stupid.
