  • Hey Mat, so you keep talking about how when “theory crafting” we should always put greater emphasis on the later games like fnaf 4 and sister location because fnaf 1 was supposed to be Scott’s last game. Well I think you should also be looking at fnaf 3 just like you would those later games. For many reasons but one really stuck out. In the fnaf 3 trailer we see two lines that read “He will come back” and “He always does” which is clearly talking about spring trap. These two lines clearly match to his famous line, “I always come back” in the much later games which in turn shows us that Scott probably had a pretty clear picture of the story all the way back in fnaf 3.

  • I wish the lore had just stayed here and the other games just built around it. One pizzeria, where a man in a mascot costume lores and kills five children, who go on to haunt the pizzeria and the animatronic characters inside. That’s it. No metal ghost juice, no zombie men inside of bunny suits, no alternative robots with giant stomach chambers and child abductor arms, no stuff like that. Just a simple ghost story of a series of murders which haunt the pizzeria they took place at.
