Five Nights at Freddy's 6 Canceled: My Thoughts

Hey Guys, remember Five Nights at Freddy's? If not, then I apologize for reminding you of this series. I can't believe this series is almost three years old. It seems like yesterday that everyone on YouTube was posting 20 minute speculation videos and gameplay with them overreacting to the jumpscares.

Okay, I'm not saying the series is all bad. The story behind the games was actually interesting. It's great to share theories around the game's story. However, did we really need a flood of 20 minute speculation videos? We have forums for a reason, so why try to profit off a fad by making cringe worthy clickbait videos? I'm just glad it's over. Otherwise, we would have more LispyJimmys in the world.

The first game was great. It was a unique idea at the time, but it got old very quickly. The fact that over 4 games followed after it really burned out the franchise's spark.

If you want to know the reason why FnAF 6 was canceled, read the statement here. If you were too lazy to read the statement, all you need to know is that Scott Cawthon is tired of being demanded to be popping out these games. He's not necessarily done with the franchise, but don't expect to see the sixth game to be released anytime soon.

The fanbase consists of 12 year olds, so that explains why he's tired of continuing the main games. Think about it, wouldn't grown adults care about this man's time?

Personally, I feel like the franchise should have been over a long time ago instead of just being forced out the door. The games are essentially the same in terms of gameplay. Seriously, the over reliance on jumpscares make the game a lot less scarier, so what's the point? I get the fifth one tries something different, but it's still full of jumpscares.

At the end of the day, it's Cawthon's game. It should be up to him if he wants to continue the series or not. Personally, I don't much care for it anymore, but it's wrong for people to be pressuring him to make another one of these games.
Till Next Time!!
