    We've had a lot of ups and downs over the years, but today is, without question, the saddest day in the history of the Theorist community. We've lost a friend and team member, Ronnie "Oni" Edwards. For those who don't know, Ronnie has worked on this channel longer than anyone, hosting his own show as well as editing a HUGE number of the videos you've watched. In six years of working together, he contributed so much to what The Game Theorists is today. His loss is one that comes after years of him bravely working to move beyond the trauma of his past, fighting an internal battle every day, a battle that eventually became too much for him. This video is to honor his memory and remind everyone out there who also struggles with anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts to reach out and keep talking because YOU ARE NOT ALONE...even when it feels like you are.
    We'll miss you, Ronnie.

    You can see it in his eyes, you can hear his voice cracking because he's trying so hard to not cry.

    I stopped watching game theory years ago but Ronnie's side questing series was my favorite. So I decided to look if he ever made any more videos only to find this. I have no words to describe what I'm feeling right now. I'm sorry to everyone at game theory for your loss of someone so close and dear, may he rest in peace.

    I’ve had suicidal thoughts before, but I always imagined what would happen after I died. The thought of it scares me, and makes me cry more. I just can’t think about losing the progress I’ve made with me, my family, and my friend, all being lost to a mistake I had done. I know my life isn’t as bad as others, yet I still cry way to much, lol. RIP Ronnie, you won’t be forgotten on this channel.

    Rest in peace Ronnie, he was gone too soon, one of the worst parts is that he didn't get noticed enough by the community even though he was creating the videos they enjoyed so much.

    I was planning my suicide, when this came up on my recommended. I vaguely remembered watching it years ago and it having an impact on me. on a whim I decided to watch it. this was the push I needed to reach out to my friends and tell them how deeply I was struggling after hiding it for so long. Thank you Matt. And thank you Ronnie for leaving such an important impact on the world.

    R.I.P Ronnie Edwards. He was a huge inspiration for how I changed my editing style. He will always be missed.

  • SnowEarDraws

    He worked for almost 7 years on his channel. He deserves all the care.

    If anyone sorts by new: Don’t!

    I'm mostly ironic in ESclips comment sections and I'm aware that this video is 3 years old, but please, just please

    I know why everyone hates this channel, but they need to understand why MatPat made this channel in the first place. It
