Most people, including myself grew up on G4. X play is what drew me into G4. Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb kept me entertained every time I tuned in. At its start, X play had a very low-budget and passion for what they were doing showed. To this day I still remember such characters as Drunk Link and Ratty. There was a time where G4 was all about video games and it was f****** awesome.
However, as time went on, something happened. G4 began to acquire more funding, and began changing their overall
focus. Gaming took a backseat to other focuses, and quite frankly, I hated it. The years continued and my consumption of gaming news changed.
By 2008, I had stopped watching G4 completely. I was tired of G4 and had moved on. However, Earlier this year, My attention was drawn back to G4, but not in a way G4 wanted. Kevin Pereira and Adam Sessler, two of my favorite G4 personalities, had left G4. At this point I had personally proclaimed G4 as dead, in terms of a gaming media outlet.
It would seem that this death has become official. According to a report on Variety, G4 – one of the only TV stations in the world with a “geek” mandate – will be “rebranded” early next year, resulting in a change of focus and possibly a change of name as well. This means that G4 is finished.
