Ronald Oni "Ronnie" Edwards is the editor for The Game Theorists and The Film Theorists. Besides editing his friends' videos, he hosts his own animated show known as Digressing and Sidequesting, where he explains the concept and design of many popular video games. Ronnie also has his own YouTube channel, DigressingNSQ, where he uploaded commentaries, animations, and additional episodes of his show, Digressing and Sidequesting. As of 2015, his channel has over 20,000 subscribers and over 500,000 video views.
While in high school, Ronnie gained an interest in game mechanics and programming, and would eventually start his own web series about the subject. On December 26, 2011, Ronnie launched the first episode, or quest, of this show, Digressing and Sidequesting, with music produced by musicians lara6683 and Shigatai, and the Intro Text Fire Template provided by the Sony Vegas pro editor, RavenProDesign. The episode was aired on his currently inactive personal channel, DigressingNSQ(an abbreviation of Digressing and Sidequesting). A total of nine episodes were uploaded onto his channel. During late 2011, Ronnie managed to come across Daniel Floyd and James Portnow, the voice and writer of the popular web show Extra Credits, and seized his opportunity to interview them through podcasts. After recording the interviews, Ronnie conjured a taste for film-making, and planned to further produce interview podcasts. He began a series of internet podcasts titled Random Internet Encounters, where he would interview Internet celebrities and uploaded the podcasts of Daniel and James as the first two episodes on its own website as downloadables. While on YouTube, Ronnie stumbled across MatPat's show Game Theory after only seven episodes of the show, and ended up with a chance to interview on episode 4, right after interviewing Norman Caruso on episode 3. Following the interview, Mat Pat gained interest in Ronnie's talent for show and film, and offered a spot on the The Game Theorists channel. Ronnie saw this as a great opportunity and accepted Mat Pat's offer by moving his show onto Mat Pat's channel. The first episode of his show uploaded to The Game Theorists channel was Hit Points and Health Bars on August 30, 2012. Due to the boost in popularity his show received, he continued to work on his show for eight more episodes before retiring it, but it returned on December 14, 2014.
- Ronnie's show was the first to be cancelled, albeit temporarily.
- Ronnie's favorite The Legend of Zelda game is the original.
