Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ►
You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

  • uhhh matpat, in the fnaf security breach gameplay trailer, we see gregory looking into some cameras and he has the same shirt as him, he has the white line on the shirt, and he could be the crying child. THE SILLY FNAF BOOK HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!! He Is Not Evan, He Is Gregory. We Might Also Play As Him Again Because In The Trailer, The Person You Are Playing As In The Trailer Is SUPER SMALL. So There. Make Sure You Make Another Video About This, Or Else, HE WILL DESTROY YOUR SOUL!! ;) (P.S I'm Not Flamingo)

  • I mean his death wasn't really on screen, since we saw it on a mini game instead having it animated by Scott, tbh, Scott should make a FNaF history gallery in Security and Breach when you complete the game and should the minigames should be found as real scenes. Who agrees?

That’s my favorite one of all of them & everytime I watch my favorite FRgolders play it, it seems as if there’s a point to the game you guys are missing . What if the whole time sister location held LOTS of secrets 😭

And went on to live and had a child or something.? Like, I've somehow noticed how we don't really know who the child that was mentioned in the bite of 87 is or something but ehhhh. Lol

  • Hey i just had a thought if the purple man is a killer then why did he make it so eazy to find him out well i have the answer ok sister location at the end we see enard get inside of mike and use him as a vessle but here is where the purple guy comes into play bacicly fazbearz entertainment knew that the purple guy was experamenting with life and death and he was able to make sentiant robots so they knew that mike had ennard in him and he was reeking havic on the world so purple guy made the robots sentiant with one goal kill mike then comes fnaf 1 and 2 those were the two attempts to kill mike but they never succeeded and we can skip fnaf 3 but in fnaf four is where it gets juicey so the mini games arnt the crying childs games there michals they are flashbacks of the most traic moment of his life then we see the actuall gameplay where hes fighting the nightmares and this is when those scenes in sister location that showed mike walking and day by day mike had to fight the nighmares in his mind forever traped until ennard comes out of him and then he gets revived and lives on and also ennard lives on as well. (side note the purple man was betrayed by the spirits and was made into springtrap). But matpat if you see this just think why did the purple guy make it so ovious for us the therists and fazbearz entertainment and that was my thery on fnaf i hope matpat sees this and mentions a video about it. BUT HEY THATS JUST A THEORY, A GAME THEORY THANKS FOR READING.

  • There's something I'm wondering 'bout... (sorry, just went on a fnaf game theory marathon and I'm puzzled) If Michael is Will Afton's son, but there was a theory about crying child being Henry's son... (fnaf 4 child, happening in Henry's house, keeping his son away from animatronics and watching him through camera's after his daughter died and became the puppet -yeah, I know, summary) How are they even brother?

  • I was reading the third fazbear frights book, and I noticed a small but consistent detail. In the last story, titled the new kid. *spoilers ahead* when Kelsey gets into the Freddy suit, he tries to dance in it. The book notes that Kelsey specifically put both his arms out to the side before the spring traps snapped shut. At first I thought it was something oddly specific to point out. But in fnaf 2? I believe.. the 8 bit minigames.. when afton goes into the spring Bonnie suit, his arms go straight out to the sides before the spring traps snapped shut too. It got me thinking... I wonder if it means anything...
