    With the release of the 3rd and possibly final game of Five Nights at Freddy's, it seems everything...especially the theories..have been put to rest. But have they? If you don't wish to have spoilers for FNAF3, especially if you like to play the games, then please leave now so I don't ruin anything for you. the rest of you may carry on.

    READY?

    Here's how all the games tie together. FNAF2 came before FNAF, with FNAF3 being 30 years after FNAF. In the third game, we learn that Spring Trap (the rotten-looking animatronic) was Purple Guy, who is the murderer. Phone Guy, in some old tapes salvaged from what is presumably the setting of FNAF, refers to the animatronic as "Spring Bonnie". This is probably due to the fact the suit has 'spring locks', which hold the endoskeleton in place. If that is the case, we can then assume Golden Freddy was referred to as Spring Freddy, and these were labeled by Phone Guy as the 'classic' suits.

    Which brings me to Golden Freddy. Why does he look so limp? Phone Guy mentions in Nigh 4 or 5 (probably 4) of FNAF3 that the suits are to no longer be worn or touched, concerning a "previous incident" at a separate location. Meaning that whoever wore the Freddy suit died. We know that Purple Guy wasn't using Golden Freddy, as he is shown to be inside Spring Trap, so we can assume an employee was the unfortunate victim. Golden Freddy makes no appearance in FNAF3, curiously. Phone Guy warns employees again to not mess with Spring Bonnie as it is not safe to wear and to deflect questions from customers concerning the "new" suits. These new suits might be the animationics shown in FNAF, before getting the Toy versions of FNAF2. There has to be a space of time between when the Spring Bonnie and Freddy suits were retired and FNAF2, because the suits to replace the classic ones were only temporary until new animatronics came in.

    There are still a few unanswered questions to the FNAF series. We still don't know who or what Shadow Bonnie is. In FNAF3, there is a paper doll of him in the office, as well as a mini game featuring him. We can rule him out as being the fifth child, as we know the Puppet is the fifth child. Please comment your theories below. Another thing to mention about the other animatronics in FNAF3: they're not really there. They are labeled as "Phantom" in the Animatronic section of the Extras of FNAF3. They appear to be scorched. Once you defeat Nightmare mode of FNAF3, the newspaper shows that the Freddy's Fright attraction was burned. Does that mean that FNAF3 is just the hallucination of an employee suffocating as he dies in the flames? Another thing to note is that although we see Mangle in this game, (s)he is not in the animatronic section of the Extras. Is it because (s)he doesn't really jumpscare you, or is (s)he not really there at all?

    Besides the unanswered questions, with FNAF3 we learn who the murderer is (although we still don't know if he was an employee or just a generally creepy dude, as his death scene suggests he either knows how to use the suit or he didn't and figured it would protect him from the spirits of the dead children), what happens to the spirits of the children, and the eventual end to the Freddy Fazbear's Pizza mystery. Overall, the series was interesting, and maybe Scott will eventually explain the mysteries to the unsolved aforementioned. Comment any therioes you may have, and whether or not you think Scott will make another FNAF game.

    I want to play these games but the last time I played a SH game it was Amnesia. Just loved it until I thought it would be a good idea to play really high and it kinda ruined the whole genre for me. Playing skyrim high on the other hand...holy shit...I'm not playing as a dirty dark elf, I AM A DIRTY DARK ELF!

    That said, I'm gonna play these anyway, just too intrigued.

    *** Pretty sure this will have spoilers soo...you've been warned***


    Tbh I feel like there could be a 4th FNAF game cause there are quite a few things that are still left un-answered...Or maybe just Scott holding a giant press release telling everything that would be nice too loooool. I'm not sure where Scott can go at this point, the only thing would to be go back to the very first diner (which is where I believe Springtrap and Golden Freddy were first idk).

    There is something people discovered in the newspaper clipping of the good ending. Brightening it up you can see what looks like Springtrap behind the little Freddy figure. Some people believe he survived the fire and of course since the article said 'whatever is left will be auctioned off' then he might still be around. In the hat image there also looks like what is a '4' in the light but that is super far fetching.

    As for the animatronics in the 3rd one, I'm pretty sure they're all hallucinations. I think the fire happened at a previous location and then there is a fire at the attraction. With how the vents are my theory is that the stench from Springtrap is soooooo bad that it floods throughout the entire attraction and when the vents go off when he's in them, you start to hallucinate from how bad it is. Thats just my take on it though.

    Golden Freddy I believe existed at one point but no longer does. The mini games do show him with Springtrap but with how he just fades away in FNAF 2 and how he just pops in when you look at the poster in FNAF, he seems to be a hallucination. Or maybe it's the guy who died in him that haunts the pizza place but shows up as Golden Freddy? Who knows.

    Shadow Bonnie I REALLY wanna know who it is because ughhhhh such a loose end.

    There is a theory running around that there are 3 different Purple Guys since they all look different in the mini games. Or it could just be how the animatronics see the employees but it would be interesting to have different killers or something.

    Also did anyone every figure out who deffo was the animatronic who caused the Bite of '87? Or who was the victim? I honestly believe Foxy did it to protect a child who came in contact with an employee he thought was suspicious or something *really really REAALLLYYY believes the animatronics are good guys who protect the kiddies cause adults are really mean*

    tl:dr; Scott should make a 4th game or go on Reddit for a few days or somewhere to give answers.

    Until we're 100% sure Scott is done making games, we won't really know.
    Ppl can only draw conclusions from the content available to them, before FNAF3 came out everyone was drawing conclusions from just 2 games, which doesn't tell the whole story, sooo I guess we'll just have to wait and see

    Scott sold the film rights to Warner Brother's by the by. They're making a movie now, and he's apparently going to have some influence over the production.

    But probably not the game rights? If anything I think it's now confirmed that the game series is done? Hopefully there will be a press.conference where he answers questions.

    The article I read specifically said movie rights, and no article thus far has said "all rights", so make of that what you will I suppose. And yeah, pretty much guaranteed that Scott is done with the FNAF games.

    I found out about this on Tumblr today, and I think that's totally rad! I am trying to remain cautiously optimistic, but the idea of a FNAF movie just sounds awesome. If the movie really comes to fruition, I can't wait to see where they choose to go with it.

    As long as they focus on the lore as-is and don't try to change it into some cheesy horror flick, I think it has potential.

    MatPat is going to have an aneurism when he has to rework his theories to include the new game.

    I too watch Mark play it (and if I may indulge my inner hipster for a moment, been subbed since pre-5k). I also watch Jack's attempts, though he never finishes them.
    I've played the first one, can't really enjoy it though, for reasons similar to Yahtzee's. The game was designed to be pure stress, with each subsequent game getting better at inducing it. It's designed to make you feel uncomfortable and helpless. I am a person who hardly ever feels stress or discomfort, so the experience is...different and not entirely enticing. I cannot enjoy it, but the story and game itself are far too interesting for me to stay away from it.

    I just watch Mark scream I AM SO BONED over and over and that's how I get through it. Scary games take forever to get through if you're me. I'm liable to put them aside for six months until I feel ready to make some progress again XD

    I actually got a few of my college classmates to play it without any pretense of what it was, only phone guy's voice to guide them. That was an interesting experience. Also got one of my instructors to play it, she was completely unphased.

    I absolutely adore the series but like Yahtzee and you as well I can't play because of how stressed it makes me. Even just watching a friend play it I began having a panic attack and we were only on Night 1 of the first game. Oh boy was that fun. Stress induced panic attacks. Gotta love them (no not really hahahahaha damn you scott).

    But I don't have issues watching Mark play it and despite my irrational fear of animatronics (stemming from childhood trauma cause of them) I can't stay away. The lore is just. I can't even put into words how excited this game gets me over how interesting and fantastic it is.

    Also how did MatPat not shoot himself yet like Scott HAD to have been waiting for him to release a FNAF video to announce FNAF 4 like the little devil he is (also MatPat can suck an egg I got scared shitless by the ending jumpscare before his NatureBox thing).

    The jump scare didn't have any effect on me lol. There has to be buildup or atmosphere for something like that to get me. Got my sister though, it was hilarious.

    Fnaf 4 has me reeling and all I'm doing is watching the lets plays.
    Its amazing how at the very first game, players were terrified and complained at not being able to move around but now in 4 we have the freedom to walk AND turn around, but its even MORE terrifying than being immobile. I thought the game would lose fear points for not having any kind of depleting power meter, but I was dead wrong. I would say this one is the scariest yet just because you don't get the comfort of the phone call, you're all alone, you're just a little kid, and no cameras, just a flashlight and your prayers.

    I usually watch more famous Youtubers playing it (Mark, Pew, etc), but this dude here, he is the BEST for fear reactions, his girlish screams had me cracking up alllll night. Hes doing the demo in this vid, but he has more of the full game

    Lol. I figured out the back story for FNAF 4.

    It appears to be the events prior to the kids being murdered by Purple Guy. The main kid is suspicious therefore afraid to go to his own birthday. He could either become Golden Freddy or the Puppet.
