If that's even true, he won't be gone for long. He'll be back in no time, ready to pump out another one of these dumb things. Then little kids who think these games are all that will rush to buy it, which'll fund another one, and so repeats the cycle.

Well, he's announced cancelling his games before, but usually there's a link or brightening the screen reveals that he was trolling. This time there's no such thing, so he could either be telling the truth... or he's getting better at trolling.

I love the games. I'm not thrilled how the kids and fanbase ruined it for outsiders. Personally, I never considered them to be 'kid's games'. Under the right mindset, the games are scary as hell. Just the thought of being alone in some crappy building in the middle of the night and some creepy animatronic grabbing me and shoving me into a Freddy suit full of sharp crap, regardless of wether or not I fit in there in the first place until I die by bleeding out stopped me from buying the game for the longest time.

I kinda think the kids don't understand the game and just see cute critters that play peek-a-boo or something. Do these kids and Hot Topic buyers realize Freddy Fazzbear kills you in a hell of a horrible way if he catches you? Or that the whole backstory revolves around child murders?

I remember when I finally got into FNAF and I was so excited and kept telling people only to realize that only little kids and bronie-tier dorks online liked it as much as me

No regrets, I loved Showbiz Pizza as a kid so this hits just right in the nostalgia cord.


Edit: Waiting for a new FNAF game is alright, maybe it can release around the time of the movie which is going slowly. The lore got too complicated and stupid imho so expanding it too much would be a mistake.

Oh by the way, I got Sisters Location for free! I bought the "complete" FNAF bundle a few months before Sisters Location and after it was released it was already in my library, talk about cool since I even bought that bundle on sale.

I don't think it's any different then kids dressing up as Jason from Friday the 13th for Halloween or Freddy Krueger having his own rap song. Don't forget the original Ghostbusters was a movie meant for adults but gained a huge following with children.

Most kids just like getting scared. I know my niece loves watching people on Youtube play the games, but never wants to actually play them. I guess that way she can still get scared, but not so scared because of the humorous freakouts from the Let's Players. That ways the fear quickly turns into laughs, kind of like Scooby-Doo in a way.

True, but even then, both kids and adults continue to enjoy the next Friday the 13th or Nightmare of Elm Street (back in the day when they were pumping out sequels every year). Nowadays it seems only kids play FNAF and that's probably not in the direction the games were headed for. I'm sure Scott is happy people are playing his games, regardless of age, I'm just sure he didn't intend for them to be 99.9% kids.

FNAF is a kids franchise, I was shocked when I found out and felt embarrassed but whatever I still like it. Sure Jason/Freddy were marketed to kids but this is on a totally different level, this one is sanitized and much of the "creepy" lore was likely made by a lot of kids.

Kids aren't stupid and they like scary things, I'm guessing the largest audience of FNAF is 6-10 year olds.

Yeah, you can just walk into a toy store and see countless toys meant for kids. The only things not meant for kids are strictly the movies.

No, the lore is in the actual games through hints and mini games that expand upon it. We know most of the events, the only thing really up in the air is the how and why, as well as the exact order of events that led to what would become the first game. And Sister Location just threw in a bunch of new stuff that threw most of what we already knew on its head.

Yes, and the biggest surprise is that it turned out to actually be FNAF6 and for free.

Possibly the scariest and creepiest game in the franchise. I can't even look at Baby anymore, they gave her a hell of a mega disturbing overhaul.

I don't think any little kids will want to see that thing. That truly is the thing of nightmares.
