Watching Matpat's descent into madness in trying to solve or make a narrative sense of this franchise is a joy honestly.
@404JAY4L he would be 100 years old if he follows the same logic for himself too lol
Hell the way mat’s been trying to wrap his head around this game I wouldn’t be surprised if he was a real life William afton
Your right about that
Security Breach is one of those games that just creeps up on you. Unnerving when you find a spot on the map you've never been... that post-it room is quite freaky!
@Axeeco can't wait for to scott troll matthew
please ignore the two NPC comments above me
clip-share.net/video/a_Jh22V2_EE/video.html Finally It’s Here🤠
I’m glad that Mat made this whole timeline story. I don’t even care if/that he got something wrong here or there, it’s just a story and I’m here to enjoy hearing it come from MatPat.
@Plytix based on pfp, OP is either a bot or… just a creep. Or really happy with their body
@Mai Elwekeel huh
wtf is that pfp
I Have Been Waiting So Long For This :
This is definitely MASSIVE. As an old FNAF player, I must say that this is extremely joyful to watch. Seeing the pieces become together, it is splendid. The whole video is a masterpiece and a life story, I send you my sincerely gratitude for making this 🙏
@Jjjj Edis nah
No its not a masterpiece
I think what actually happens is the devs don’t have actual answers but just like creating mystery and twists with each game but MattPat’s full timeline fits all the major pieces so well that they should just adopt it as canon and build from there imo
Except for the 90-100 year old clara Afton running Fazbear entertainment in 2035
@Venthos Why do you lie?
Please dont make this canon, devs
Matpat can now rest after many years of research, pain, agony, and joy of deciphering the Rosetta stone of games
Scott, Matpat and Markiplier made this franchise what it is in the best way possible for us to experience let’s be honest
Matpat probably egged on Scott to make the lore so messed up
Finally the FNAF timeline finally finished! You’ve come a long way MatPat and we’re proud of you.
FNAF headcanon timeline*
It's so cool to see MatPat acknowledging and inputting theories from other channels like John's or ID's Fantasy :) I hope to see them and Rye Toast on the guest list in the talks :D
Amazing job theory team! All these years just seeing Matt struggle and get frustrated from all the lore and just seeing how they all fit it together, it's just so awesome! Whether it's correct or not, I just love all the theories that Matt and the team put out. I don't play the games but the story and the way Matt just story tells in these past 3 videos made me so happy and joyful. Such an amazing job and so much hard work is shown here. Scott has made history with his game.
I'm actually convinced that Mat could probably pursue a PhD in FNAF given how much research him and his team have put into this!
It's been awesome to follow over the last decade!
Nah nah, he’s gonna get the phd mailed to him by Scott himself lmao
“Is anyone here a doctor!?”
“Oh thank you, this per-“
“…Of Five Nights at Freddy’s”
clip-share.net/video/rNwr2HDksVQ/video.html Finally it’s here🤠
Matpat needs help, hes insane, he’s actually making the FNaF lore make sense
matpat’s dedication to this series is unlike no other. mad respect to mat for raising a generation of fnaf nerds 😭
Idk feels a lot more like 🥛🥛🥛
@Dozen Still the same
This has to be the most wild and out their theory I have ever heard about this game. It Would be crazy if even 10% of this came true. But still fun to think a unforgettable character could have this big a roll this late in the series.
You and everyone worked so hard for a story that has taken years to create. You guys came so far from the start of being a small game to a whole collection of games and stories. Thank you truly for all the hard work we appreciate you all.
I really like MatPats take on the story how Mrs. Afton is the one pulling the strings, it really is a unique version of the story.
Yeah I like a story about an old woman becoming insane
#1 trending video on Clip-Share right now! Really goes to show the amount of commitment Game Theory has put into their work
This is not at all what I saw coming for this episode but I really like the direction it took. While we don’t have a lot of evidence about Mrs. Afton, I feel like this makes the most cohesive story when it comes to how confusing and convoluted the story has gotten in recent years
I know that Mat has been worried about this chapter for quite a bit but I think this narrative works well, it's not perfect since it is only a THEORY but I am perfectly happy accepting this as my head cannon
Matpat, Tom and the rest of team theorist, you never cease to amaze me.❤
Have I played a game? No.
Did I watch every episode, some multiple times, because I love timelines and Matpats creative take? YES.
I’ll miss MatPat going insane trying to figure out the lore of FNAF (after he’s done with the movie)
The fact that this man, found a way to make Special Delivery canon is why I will forever be impressed with Matpat and his videos.
@Jjjj Edis agree to disagree. Personally, I feel like a lot of what he said makes sense considering what little we actually know about the lore.
@Absentia yeah but his interpretation of the lore still sucks
@Frederico Traumann yeah, that's what I was talking about. I'm not referring to all the emails and lore stuff. I was talking about the animatronics themselves.
Im more surprised he found a way to make those weird holiday theme animatronics fit in the lore, how could anyone explain chocolate bunny bonie? But his explanation is pretty plasible taking capitalism into account
@Calvin Noire TECHNICALLY true, but mostly thanks to Illusion Discs likely.
Mat, you were literally my whole childhood. I was in elementary school when fnaf first came out, and I discovered your channel. I'm very thankful for the past 8 years. your videos helped me get thru my depression in middle and high school, helped me find friends who shared my love for this game and for you, and you've brought me endless entertainment throughout my formative years. for the past two years I've listened to your videos everyday while working, helping me get thru the day. thank you so much for being here. in a way, your silly videos about haunted teddy bears saved me. thank you
I don't care if some of the pieces don't fit cleanly or if this is going to be proven false with Ruin, this whole timeline series has been really fun and you guys all came up with a surprisingly satisfying and cohesive story that feels just right for this mess of a franchise
I love this. I just don’t know what else to say. Have fun enjoying staying out of the madness while you still can, Mat. It has been a great journey.
Matt is just amazing how dedication he has taken to this franchise. Been here since day 1 of fnaf theory
I applaud you Matt this was such a master piece and a very nostalgic series
MatPat is so focused on this series I wouldn’t be surprised if he became the next afton
That would be bad
@The Muffin Man Ah yes, the m-preg story
He is, have you seen fnaf the musical?
MAT AFTON has a nice ring to it
I genuinely love the idea of Charlie and Gregory working together.
I always saw them as an iconic duo if ever put together.
I am honestly so happy that you added Mrs Afton into the narrative! Her role in this series has been something that was bugging me for so long because no one would talk about it!
We all love his content, but can we imagine how long it takes to animate this, solve all those mysteries and respect the script without any errors!
This man doesnt deserve 17mil
He deserves more than 30mil subs
This was iconic. I wish we had the game theory intro in this one. Great job man!! I found this channel back when you uploaded your first fnaf theory.
ive been following the lore for 10 years as well and damn... its crazy to see it all start to piece together
Imagine if Scott just throws random lore at us, waits for MatPat to make a timeline that makes sense, then uses it as the actual lore, wouldn't that be funny
Tbf, MattPat is releasing this timeline knowing that the Ruin dlc will come out this year.
No he ses matpat get it right then changes it to get more theories for mroe fnaf content lol
@The Tan Tiger exactly what happened to hello neighbor that's why it's a Broken mess
It really wouldn't be suprised by that.
Matpat making this whole series make sense makes me happy cause, it’s like it all seems to make sense especially since watching every fnaf theory from young n seeing them age with me ;)
What a story. Watching all three parts back to back was thrilling. Felt like a fresh take to a franchise that saw a conclusion already.
Man im so thankful for the everlasting effort Matpat puts into this series, without him, most of us would all be scratching our heads and being confused.
Definitely no, lol
I'm loving how the editors just insert their animated versions to explain what's happening on the screen, it's so cute
As much as complicated the FNAF lore has always been, we should all still give respect that this one man has never given up on making us intrigued no matter what. Believe me if FNAF never happened, then MatPat would have never gotten the respect and passion he made to create one of the biggest phenomenons on not just Five Nights at Freddy’s, but gaming history in general. So MatPat I just want to say thank you for always never giving up on your theories and giving us so much interesting content that impacted so much over the years.
I agree the impact is significant and respect to you, you had an amazing comment. :)
"this one man"
this one man and his team*
I would argue is more fair
clip-share.net/video/-3DyBTUfPsc/video.html Finally it’s here🤠
Props to the editors and matpat!! yall are doing amazing!!
Looking at the thumbnail and seeing the bright green words "THE END" made me chuckle. Poor Matpat's been through the trenches with this franchise. Thank you for all the work you put into these videos :)
MatPat deserves like a year’s vacation for the extreme madness he has subjected himself to
Great work, everyone at GT! The story is so enjoyable and makes tons of sense now! Thanks for all your hard work!
It is crazy how invested I am in this series considering that I have not played a single game 😅
Matt BETTER be in the FNAF movie as a cameo. He deserves it for all the work he's put into making sense of this franchise
@Zach Balent PSYCHIC FRIEND FREADBEAR!
@Jared Williams Nahh, some homeless man outside Freddy's who screams about the animatronics being alive
@_ Scriblr _ WHO YOU GONNA CALL
@Zach Balent He's here, he's there, he's everywhere!
Loved the timeline! The whole crew behind Game Theory is unrivaled!
#1 on trending wow let's all appreciate matpat he does great theories 👏 ❤
Man, I'm going to miss MatPat reading me spooky FNAF lore narrative style😢
Wish we had more episodes
This is amazing! With her in the lore, I feel like it ties up the loose ends.
heck yeah! I'm so proud of you guys! all your hard work is greatly apreasiated by me and all my sisters.
I can’t believe Mat somehow made FNaF AR a part of the timeline and also made it make a relative amount of sense is honestly impressive, great job Mat. :)
@ForsakenBonnie Oh wow, the same company that basically abandoned the game, screwed Scott, and has effectively pretended FNAF AR never existed?
...i suspect he may be screwed if his boss finds out :V
...whatever the hell is going on with Illumix at least.
@Higuera ft Recently, one of the Illumix devs has been streaming on Twitch and I asked them about the game being canon and they said: “I think yes. It was intended to be canon. Parts of it are canon. The skins are canon because they have been counted in Security Breach. Some of the story carried over into Security Breach”
@ForsakenBonnie Source on this? Last I saw it was 100% still canon. And which Devs? Scott? Steel Wool? Illumix?
I like mow markiplier was in the fazbear funtime company commercial made by William's wife
This was a great series, I've really enjoyed it!
Can we just take a moment to thank MatPat for always putting clear subtitles on all videos??
Like it's so helpful, especially for me who's HoH, and can't catch all the information these videos pack in!
THANK YOU MATPAT!!!!! ❤❤
I'm loving the story of this timeline. Excellent work.
I love that the Matpat cutout is used to signal his personal commentary on the lore
This was great, thanks for all the effort put into these!
Right on!! I agree!
At some point in the future, Matpat should sit down on GT Live, and over the period of a "few" streams, rewatch all of his old FNAF theories, and talk about what holds up still, and what is WAAAY off the mark with the knowledge we have today.
A "FNAF Theories Restrospective" would be quite dope yeah.
Heck yeah! I second that too!
@Parafoxl well it would make a great series and personally I like the idea, for example they could do an episode once or twice a week and catch up to the main episodes where he could make a day or two of separation between the theory and gtlive for opinion gathering and in the live he could speak about the loose threads of his theories while speaking about ideas and theories of the viewers
We would never see the end of it xD
Both with video-watching and game-playing, GTLive is 70% talking and 30% actually doing the watching/playing so we'd never hear the end of any of this x-x
This is the greatest incorporation of AR into the story. Even more justification for in my opinion one of the most unique and charming games in the series.
wow, such an incredible timeline. well done everyone. my one though about this part is that in the fnaf encyclopaedia, Crying Child and Gregory have two different entries. now obviously they wouldn't outright canonise them as essentially the same person and this is probably a way of showing that it isn't the same person no matter how hard Mrs Afton tries to convince herself but worth taking a look at in the talk back!
Maybe Mrs. Afton realized she needed to halt the spread of Glitchtrap. Having already successfully merged Afton into Vanessa, allowing more of the virus to spread around is not only redundant but also calls more unwanted attention to the situation from unsuspecting employees.
Awesome job Mat and team!! Glad you made this even though it probably made you crazy haha. Makes it clear and concise everything so far in the lore world of FNAF. Thank you!!
Yeah it makes the lore soooo clear now. An 80 years old woman goes insane. And he doesn't even say which SB ending is canon. If Gregory frees Vanessa Freddy gets destroyed and only his head remains. And then Gregory burns Burntrap and the whole place collapses but Freddy isn't destroyed in that ending.
There is not much i really feel to say,but this.
After 9 years, he's finally done it! Well done, Matpat. You've done it all, the timeline is finished. You've come so far and we are proud!
@Fling Cheese Admittedly, a *large* part of the sheer contradictions and loose threads is focused squarely within 1-World, i will point out.
@Paul Hikari Clip-Share won’t ban them anyway, and if they did, they’ll just create a new account and start over
All of you are replying to a porno spam bot. Report it at once.
@Drizzle551 Your right, the lore is great and so are the games, but they aren’t written in way to make actual sense of it
@MeatCaynon 🅥 I thought you were real
You have outdone yourself once again. Creating a narrative to be better understood by the wider audience, the theories themselves helping to bridge gaps that remained loose, all of it was incredible. Amazing work, can't wait for the DLC to potentially blow this whole thing wide open again. gg
I keep thinking about how this all went in Scott's mind, the man is a legend
Every fnaf theory youtubers collabing and using each other theories, I love it.
This was awesome! I have wondered about mrs. Afton before and this fits her perfectly into the story!
Congrats Matt, this was great fun and quite comprehensive! It's a really interesting approach to the story, can't wait to see the ruin DLC now!
Mat who defined the lore, markiplier who popularized the game and Scott created it. Truly a powerful trio 😂
@B1XSSOM Actually, Living Tombstone did FAR more than he ever did with FNAF.
It all goes back to about 2006...
Scott pounds the internet's FNAF-cake, Markiplier kneads it, and in the end, Matpat sits down and eats it
*Parody of a saying about the unification of Japan, involving Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, and Ieyasu, and a "national rice cake"
Yes my friend
Theorist team, you guys have gone above and beyond on this, and it's awesome. There's so much disparate lore here, and having one narrative to fit it together really enriches things, even if it is just a theory.
" There are too many ideas going into too many different directions" This definitely felt like shade to the storyline 😅
honestly I can actually see clara rebuilding the whole fazbear industry, just think about it. Clara always wished for a normal perfect family, and she is still absolutely devastated that her family died because of a family diner her and William ran together, as a family. So naturally she strives to try to get her family back together even after all the tragedy that happened to the family, and what matpat says in this video is extremely probable in my opinion.
Amazing job MatPat. The fact that you actually included ID's Fantasy and FuhNaff's theories were the cherry on top of the cake for this ultimate timeline 👏
MatPat is among the biggest brains
Soo many years of lore to get here lol, still remember when the first theory episode blew my mind
Can’t wait to come back in 2 years and see how much of this timeline is still kept
@Higuera ft explain with that logic
@Higuera ft 1. How else would the mouth close? he literally explained that it was C.C's tears that caused it. He was crying so much out of the fear. Water causes the spring locks to fail even excessive moving. You expect him to be still and calm?
2. Exactly YEARS ago BEFORE security breach it makes sense it was Mrs. Afton who else would do it? He literally says there's a table with her at it if she has absolutely no major role in the lore why is she out of all places at the HEAD of the table? The most important spot.
@𝕽𝖔𝖈𝖐𝖊𝖙 𝕬𝖓𝖉𝖗𝖆𝖉𝖊 Except he does, though he never explained...
Hell, it's not even the books, the IMMEDIATE start of the timeline and this theory have major inaccuracies/contradictions.
The Bite of 83 was not the "Multiple Simultaneous Springlock Failures" mentioned. It never involved springlocks failing, and the two events are 2 years apart.
Scott himself stated years ago that Mrs Afton plays NO major role in the events of the series. Unless Steel Wool outright states/confirms otherwise, this is the Word of God. Her current role is simply "The Mother"...
@Jova but you have no proof
While I have never played a FNAF game (Except for Delivery Service, which I played for a week or two) the lore has always been what kept me interested. Watching these four parts, even though some of it might be more fan fiction than fact, it makes me appreciate the level of detail, even if obscure and nonsensical, that was put into the story. But most of all, it makes me so happy that there is someone like MatPat who can stich it together and form a coherent narrative, cause I would never have been able to figure all of that out on my own. XD
Wow matt finally managed to do it congrats, I literally grew up watching matt solve this series
He did it. I’m so proud of him. He finally did it.
Say what you want. MatPat's got a voice for this kinda stuff. Imagine an SCP audiobook narrated by him.
This theory makes a lot of sense compared to past theories. Congrats Matpat, you survived 8 years of spending hours and hours of scanning books and games. :)
MatPat is the main reason I enjoy this fandom and franchises so much. Accepting his theories as cannon has let me enjoy this so much
@london I think fnaf is popular because of the gameplay
@Zonks no i personally like both and have played them, but the reason fnaf is so popular is because of the lore, which doesnt require playing the games to understand or be included in since theres so many youtube videos and communities online to share/talk about it with
@Jordan M same I started out with the theories and then started watching mark’s playthroughs
@london I know, but do you only care about the lore? I love both lore and gameplay
I gotta agree with you
I love the fact that somehow watching matpat videos makes fnaf way scaryer
The whole timeline videos are amazing!! Great job!
The biggest issue i can see with this theory is age. If Clara is anywhere near William's age, then she'd be EXTREMELY old by 2035, like barely able to walk old (at lease based on William being a little boy in the 1930s). She'd be too old for what she's supposedly doing
I love how finally mrs afton is finally a decent part of the lore ❤
This was such a great video! You totally sold me on the Gregory being a robot idea! Are you going to put all of these videos together at some point? I would love to watch all of them back to back! Thanks!
Alas it relies on Fanon and errors/MASSIVE stretches to do so...
Some are minor, some not so much.
After so many years it’s finally over, and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you MatPat, for this detailing this amazing journey.
@RaptorDX Considering large chunks of this timeline is fanon... it's already been taken apart, including by statements from Scott himself years ago :V
@Game Jam How? It just came out
@MattTOB I wouldn't be surprised if she was.
@Greenostrich27 🦅 "Mrs. Elizabeth Afton."
You should Put all the parts into one full episode. Just a suggestion!
Mattpat is a genious!!! A true theory artist!
If the live action film ever comes out it needs Matpat as a conspiracy theorist warning everyone about the pizzeria
Congrats on #1 on Trending MatPat!
Interesting stuff, really has me thinking about this wild lore. Maybe there's more to it than we think.
These theories were so much fun to watch, thank you matpat
Bots, bots everywhere
@Not RickRoll 🅥bot
*Here is the full clip explaining why dad left you: (Making fun of bots)*
Dude, the writing on the theory channels is awesome.
4:30 Matpat just straight calling out Scott made me laugh
i hate that my friends complain about someone THEORIZING about a series. like i just enjoy watching mat put this all together and his teams hard work as well as his own
This feels like an elaborate plan set in place by Scott so that it would fit better into the movie, it just seems too on the nose *honk*. It would be perfect way to incorporate the theorist into the movie, the one in charge of assembling this game thus far. From Clara Afton being the villain and Mary Stuart Masterson playing the "Female Villain" and hints that Blumhouse would implement a new character (as said at 22:33)
I remember back when the fnaf 3 lore video came out I asked in the comments what happened to the mother. I could probably still go back and find it but it just seems really poetic that it's come back around to her lol.
I'm happy with the story y'all have compiled/crafted
