Okay Seriously. Where is all the hype for FNaF coming from?

DreamnomadDreamnomad Member Posts: 2,837

I've heard the idea tossed around for about as long as I've been playing DBD. Typically as a joke. But the last couple of weeks the hype for a Five Nights at Freddy's chapter has been getting pretty intense. My 11 year old son won't shut up about it. Which tells me he's been watching some youtube videos of people talking about it. WHY? Why all the sudden does this seem to be such a hot topic? Is it because of the Clown elephant and Legion bunny costumes that people seem to think this is the direction the game is going and now FNaF is a real possibility? I deeply, truly, passionately do not want FNaF in this game. Am I alone in this? I would love to hear from the Devs stating that it will never happen so the topic can be dropped.

    @Dreamnomad 100% with you, man. I would be incredibly disappointed if that was one of the serious contenders to be included in the game. I would much rather see Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd than that crap

    It was a thing long before the Robbie skins, it mostly just stems from the hype for more licensed Killers. That, and some Fnaf fans just want it to happen. I've mostly seen the community be indifferent about it, but it also sometimes goes from no to yes depending on who's commenting.

    Okay seriously. Why is an 11 year old even interested in DbD? I mean I know there are kids in that age that can process it well enough but there are reasons why this game has an age restriction..

    I mean I used to play M rate games all the time back in the 360 days. Its not uncommon, especially these days, for kids to be playing M rated games now. But that's another can of worms to discuss, I don't personally want to start said discussion either.

    Either someone copied all those "liberate" movements from the USA, in that they were all spawned by people with a vested interest in the concept, or it's just one of those things that pops up every now and then.

  • MooksMooks Member Posts: 3,252

    Well if you let your young children play mature games, don’t wonder why they ask for content they are also interested in for that game..

    Backlash? What backlash? Are you telling me people would seriously uninstall DbD just because a franchise they happen to dislike gets added to the game? Now that's just plain silly. What matters is pandering to the audience which is going to buy your game and content by giving them a character they're familiar and maybe even fond of. They already have the money of everyone else, this is about expanding.

    this game is already very goofy. But I agree that the next killer should not be from FNAF, also I doubt the next one is candyman, I think the Devs make like 2-3 original killers before they get a licensed one

  • grayon444grayon444 Member Posts: 423

    Backlash.As in actual big backlash here.

    Why would you want a ''game'' if you could even call it that.

    Ok a ''thing'' that is marketed towards kids being in a M rated game?

    What do all people have against FNAF recently?

    I personally didnt play it, but its a interessting concept and the plot that has to be puzzled together and leaves huge room for interpretation is something i like in every franchise that has it.

    But as a new killer in dbd i have other more urgent wishes, but i just hate that "its for kids" argument. Its such a childish point of view.

    • Good concept? Sure, I guess. Already done to death (and better) by others? Definitely.
    • For kids? Maybe not, but most fans I've seen are children. However, I'm willing to chalk this up to a vocal minority.

    "Room for interpretation" is, IMO, synonymous with lazy writing. It's a way to pretend your writing is clever because it raises a bunch of supposedly interesting questions when you know damn well you have no answers and gave it no thought whatsoever. It's a good way to create a "hardcore" fanbase by making people endlessly debate which of their headcanons is best, but it's not compelling writing (again, IMO) if you take a step back and realize that there are no answers.

  • PeacePeace Member Posts: 162

    Interesting concept, yes. Its not overly on top or something, but was enough to watch through all games and i looked 1 or 2 plot videos where they puzzled everything together. And yea.. thats it.

    I understand your point of view with the lazy writing, i see that as a problem in many games or especially in horror movies, often its just bad writing and doesnt make much sense. The worst series i personally faced was "lost" just horrible the more i watched it.

    However in short what i liked is, that if you puzzle together the few hints that are given in the first 4 games, theres a nice little story behind it with that purple guy and that they are out of order depending on when they are set in time. The gameplay in itself is just a unfair puzzle and i wouldnt waste my time with that.

    I wouldnt recommend myself a hardcore fan, its just that argument i cant really take serious. Like people gotta bring up actual reasons to bring the conversation forward, instead running in circles with the "its for kids" "no its not" "its for kids" "no its not".

    Id like to see an alien chapter with ripley btw.

    Would definitely not say Fnaf is bigger then Dbd not by a longshot, thing is there are far better licenses to go after then..Fnaf..ugh

  • FregglesFredFregglesFred Member Posts: 232

    This whole community really hates FNaF.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 2,723

    The hype comes from the same place as the Hellraiser and Candyman chapter predictions...the 23 hours a day play DBD streamers.

  • branchini1979branchini1979 Member Posts: 295

    They will not do another licensed killer. Not seen them do 2 in a row. Maybe next licensed killer in 6 months? (After 2 original killers).

  • Yung_SlugYung_Slug Member Posts: 2,193

    I still watch PewDiePie and Markiplier to this day, what's your point?

    Memento mori. Unus annus.

  • Yung_SlugYung_Slug Member Posts: 2,193

    I think it was mostly Silent Hill being added. Before that, we just got horror movie icons. Now we could get video game characters as well. I don't personally believe that fnaf will be added, but it's a real possibility now.
