This thread is a discussion of things that one may have noticed or theories one might have about the FNAF story and setting that you believe ties together the story. Fair warning; spoilers are unmarked assuming one has played or watched all four FNAF games.

Now I've only watched the games as played by Markiplier, but I've noticed something about the fourth that I wanted to put out in a discussion to see if others noticed as well. One question I've had about the fourth games is: Why does everyone trust the narration coming from The Child? In other games you play as some poor scmuck who had the unfortunate luck of getting a job at Freddy Fazbear, and you see the plot and the secrets through their eyes. But as The Child, you see his 'flashbacks' of his brother and the days leading up to the tragedy at his birthday, but there are gaps in between events that aren't filled in. Plus, remember we are seeing the memories through the mind of a child who just had a major brain injury to the frontal lobe that possibly damaged other parts of the brain and could have effected his memory.

So what do you think?

Scott Cawthon created a unique series with these games and speaking as someone who finds the mainstream horror games a 'yawnfest', what drew me to the FNAF games was the lore behind them. I've seen the 'Game Theory' vids on Youtube... one of them showing reference to a actual shooting at a Chuck E Cheese in the US and drew some common ground with the first game.

Yes, I've seen Markiplier's playthroughs (as well as a few others like Jacksepticeye, Yamimiash Ihascupquake) as well.

Well, the bite of '87 was a major plot development of the series and having part of your frontal lobe being bitten would cause some degree of mental trauma (It's amazing one could survive that...), so FNAF 4 could be conceived as the Child relating the events AFTER said accident.

I agree that Scott Cawthon made a great game series that anyone can discuss.
I wonder what did the Child witness that made him so afraid of the animatronics? Was it how they look, did he witness a spring lock failure, his brother and his friends scaring him, or did he witness the Purple Guy placing a child in one of the suit or killing them in some way?
