You just described most of the people on a PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo forum...

I liked him, because he never felt like a suck up to one brand. I appreciated his opinions. I did not always agree with them, but his voice was as important as any of ours. And like many other gamers, his views/opinions about certain topics could change.

 

Oh well. I wish him the best on whatever he does in the future.

Wow, that so weird. I just started listening to the Kevin Perrera Podcast today which he features Adam Sessler. It was a few months old, and he was talking about how much he loved Rev3 and the creative freedom that he finally has now. I wonder what new door opened up?

Thank God?

 

Seriously, this guy is a genius when it comes to the video game industry. Go listen to some of his 'Sessler's Something' videos on Rev3, and you might change your mind. I didn't care for him while he was on XPlay, but realized how intellectual the guy was once I started subscribing to his videos.

Believe me, I love inFamous as much as anyone, but in the grand scheme of things, was the game worthy of a perfect score? No.

 

The guy made some decent points on why he gave it a 3/5 and doesn't score many games above a 4 in the first place.

 

Once you platinum the game and do the Paper Trail missions, will you really go back to the game? Maybe if some DLC comes out in the future, but the game just lacks replayability as compared to many open world type games. I loved the game, but it's true.

I hate to admit it..... but that's sort of a good thing. I noticed more peronality growing over the reviews he would post lately. He also seemed to be growing way more critical towards games..... or maybe I'm just noticing a bit too much

It deserved better?

Graphics, sure: 5/5

Everything else: 3/5 seems reasonable, in my opinion.

Well, maybe as a positive for those of you who enjoy his work, he's not really leavng the industry for good is he?

So he'll be doing something in the gaming industry, just not what he has been doing?

As a whole, it sounded like he wants to look at other ventures but could be wrong...
