Sad if only for the fact that JRPG coverage will take a turn for the worse. His antics during TNT were great too.

He was okay, but I doubt I will really miss him.  But I will miss his stupid choice of questions during TNT!  They always made me laugh

Matt was a cool guy.
Was fun with him on the TNT chat and articles/news he wrote were more fun and interesting to read then Brad.N's

Not really. I don't actively hate him like a lot of people here seem to, but I can't honestly say I'll miss him either.

Why do some people hate him?
I must have missed something.

I'll miss Kessler Kam, it was a nice glimpse into some of the conversations that the WM crew have around the offices. I also think it's healthy for a group to have a scapegoat to be the butt of a lot of jokes, and Kessler filled that role nicely.  
 
So yes, I think I will miss him.

Internships generally occur while one is in college, so perhaps when he is done with university he will be offered a job. I have no knowledge on this specific instance though.

As he will probably read this I'll write directly to him: dude you sure like to talk a lot and quickly... though I have to admit that your talk isn't cheap it's just a little too much for my taste. Still you would make a nice addition to the GB team.

Sorry to see him go. I assume he'll still be kicking around the forums and whatnot, but he was a great addition to the group.

He seems be a really nice guy, and in writing, I enjoyed his articles.  
 
However, every time he spoke he seemed a little overeager. Like "HI I'M MATT AND I AM NOW SAYING SOMETHING" I think that comes somewhat with being an intern, especially in an office of extremely seasoned vets. 
 
Wish him all the best in the world though.

People hate change so I guess there going to be a shitload of posts about how he ruined everything and bla bla bla, but I liked him it was fun seeing a new face and I do think he contributed the website in a meaningful way and I hope to see him again soon.

I was under the impression that he was going to stay at Giant Bomb just as Drew did. Oh well, he was interesting and I'm not really that worried because his account is still here anyway so he's still around if you get what I'm saying.

I don't know, it mostly seems to be because of either his voice or how overly enthusiastic he is. To be honest I'm shocked that you haven't seen anyone bitching about him. There were a lot of people at it for a while there.

He pretty much seems like part of the team, to me.  It'll be different without him.  I'm sure it's not the last we'll see of Kessler, though.

Wait, I thought we secretly revoked all of his privileges to the Mod Cave and gave his parking space to the cleaning lady?

Sad that HE'S leaving, you mean? Well, it's not like he's getting fired because he's incompetent or something, it was a summer internship and like all good things, it is coming to and end. So I'm not sad, but I wish him well in the future.

Only the most basic defence that a human being deserves, regardless of whether I know them or not. I don't particularly like his voice or any of his work as an intern but I have seen people saying very horrible things about him just because they find him to be annoying or whatever. It's uncalled for.

Honestly he was a nice guy. He was over enthusiastic and it was a little annoying at time, but it makes sense given his situations. He may have been knowledgeable about JPRG's, but that is a topic I have zero interest in. However, that genre has a lack of attention on this site so it would be useful. I wish him luck and I'm sure we will see him next year :) Peace duder

Matt Kessler killed my mother, and raped my father. He is my twin brother, but also my sworn enemy. We can never be in the same room or else Hampshire will explode. 
 
So it is written. 
 
I'm sad he is leaving because now he is going to go back to sitting in the IRC like a chump and yelling about Path Of Neo like he always does.

He seems to fit in with the guys like a natural. And he brings knowledge to an area that isn't covered much.
 
They should probably hire him.
