Former G4 host Adam Sessler is sparked debate on Twitter after mocking “gamers” in a series of posts.

Adam Sessler has been known and respected in the gaming sphere for his 16 years of career in journalism and for hosting a beloved games-oriented TV program Xplay.

Not that long ago, gaming enthusiasts around the world were excited for his possible return alongside other members of G4.

But, more recently, he has been known around Twitter circles for his comments about gamers.

It seems to have started with Adam’s January 6 tweet, which reads: “I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this in the past few days but gamers seem to be even less intelligible than normal this year.”

Since that tweet Adam has made over 100 more tweets over the span of 5 days, most of them poking fun at gamers or replying with comments to people who engaged with him over Twitter.

Gamers react to Adam Sessler’s comments

Sessler’s posts has generated significant chatter. Some older gamers who remember Adam Sessler from his G4 days have said they find it saddening to see him criticizing gamers so harshly.

Content creator Johnathan Irwin said: “Adam Sessler is probably the most miserable s**thead in the gaming world honestly. What’s sad is he used to be one of the happiest. He has been a huge contributor to the strides in gaming journalism, as well as its rapid decline. Maybe that’s why he’s so angry with the world.”

The debate has been divisive though, with others siding with Adam, pointing out that his tweets were somewhat over the top: “These are too good to be true. It’s like every gamer stereotype combined. I didn’t think people like this existed.”
