    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.

    "He won for a lot of days....but it only takes one loss" That line really hit me

    So. I don’t normally comment on videos but I feel the need to say this. I suffer from depression and anxiety. I had a close friend of mine commit suicide 4 years ago and, to this day, I still believe it was my fault. I know a lot of people may tell you “Sorry for your loss” or “I’m here for you” but none of the most positive or motivational speeches that have ever existed can fill an aching hole in your heart left by the loss of someone very dear to you. I know you may be thinking about what you coul...

    I do hope he recovers because this is a very depressing experience and when I lost my aunt I thought the same way as Ronnie did, Ronnie is not alone... Rip Ronnie, you served GT well. 😭😭😭

    When this video was first posted, most chats were about Shazam and making fun of it being on trending. :(

    I seriously doubt anybody will ever read this comment. If there is just one of you,Hi! Nice of you to join me. You should know i'm not in my best position at the moment and i am pretty drunk right now. I just need to get some things off my chest.I think it all started two years ago. You know about the Verona bus crash? If you dont, it was a bus full of kids from a school and their teachers coming home from a ski trip, when near Verona, the bus crashed into the pillars of an overhead bridge on a high...

    +Edvard Ramsay I totally agree, misery is no friend to anyone. All we can do is move forward and try to live the life that they no longer can. In doing so we may be able to change the lives of so many others. I work in a hospital and I'm proud to be able to change and save so many lives.

    I've never really had any horrible or sad losses in my life... I don't have depression, anxiety, or anything like that.I could probably sit here, feeling sorry for your loss and never make you feel any better or make myself feel any better.I can't relate.I couldn't make anyone feel better if I tried.I'm just awkward.I can't comfort people, because I never know what to say.All I can say is that I'm sorry for your loss, MatPat. I can't reach through the screen and hug you, even though I wish I coul...

    I’ve never had depression but I’ve had a year of an episode and it’s hard to go through, because every morning you have to try and find a reason to get up instead of sitting there all day and leaving the world behind it can be hard but the reason I could pull through, I honestly don’t know I just woke up and it’s gone I just can say to people who *DO* suffer from depression that you should get up and greet the world with a smile no matter how hard it is, because the life you have had purpose, even if y...
