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.

    Hi, recently, I watched the old videos of FNAF, I watching a disturbing detail. In these videos, MattPatt say that Fnaf 1 appened in a period included between 1991 and 1996, he affirms than Fnaf 1 is happened in 1993. But, after a quick check, this appear to me that it was impossible. In the paycheck at the and of fnaf 2, it's indicated the date of the 11/13/1987. But in the Fnaf 1 paycheck, the date is as follow: 11/13/xx . You know a Friday the 13th is rare especially the same month. So, I have checked the calendar, and afer check there really was a Friday November 13 in 1987. After this check, I looked for the nearest Friday, November 13. And the more nearest is in 1992. These élément convicted me that Fnaf 1 is happened in 1992, contrary to what MattPatt suggests.

    I have a theory of what’s the name of the crying child in the new trailer on the new fnaf game security breach we hear the bunny said “we rescued you when you where little and nobody and now you are somebody”referring when the bunny say the little girl or boy they where a child and the bunny saw them getting bullied and in the bite of 83 the crying child was gettting bullied by his brother and in the trailer as well when you see the main character in the cameras he or she has the same shirt as when the crying child died and this could be the crying child and now some voice said “we are going to get you out of here Gregory” and I think the crying child name is Gregory and why would the animatronics be childish if the crying child still a kid.And that’s my theory.

    Guys I think that the crying child’s name is Gregory because in the new security breach trailer it shows a person in front of cameras or something and I think it’s the crying child because the person is wearing the classic grey and black striped shirt with messy hair and possibly holding something that could be his Fred bear plush any way back to the part about the name in the trailer a voice more specifically a females voice meaning we could get a new character or it could just be Vanny. I know this is not 100% correct but it could be

    I wonder if the lyrics("All I see is an empty room," "No more joy, an empty tomb.") that ballora sings refers to fnaf 3 because, I think that the empty room is referring to the secret room where afton dies and spring trap was created, and the empty tomb reffers to what was supposed to be afton's tomb.

    Hey game theory. I have a theory for u and its pretty good. U see, it starts with the comic on Chapter 1. The numbers 5 and 3=53, so I went to page 53 and I found out that page 53 doesn't have a number so I went thru the book, listing every page that didn't have a page number and I got: 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 23, 26, 27, 29, 31, 33, 34, 36, 37, 38, 40, 41, 45, 47, 48, 52, 53, 59, 63, 64, 67, 68, 70, 75, 79, 80, 86, 89, 90, 95, 98, 99, 109. As we can see, the numbers are being repeated. So, I went thru the book AGAIN to try and find something that was repeated and I found 'My name'. It was always covered up so I tried to find a name and Mike was the only one that made sense meaning Mike is the link to solving everything! This is something u may want to look at very closely and see if u can find the link between Mike and the fnaf lore. :)
