How do you delete a post?
As much as I'd like to see a crossover (Springtrap in particular would fit quite well, I think), I don't think it will happen because of their... reputation.
the First 3 games had a good story, but it's been diluted to mediocrity over the 3 that followed. The Nightmares and Springtrap could easily work in terms of a gritty and hyperrealistic aesthetic, although I'm not sure how their mechanics would work for this game. The best fit would probably be Springtrap, because he is a psycho undead murderer, who could probably work in a slasher flick if Scott really tried (we have yet to see how the movie unfolds, as it's in production).
The games in general do a good job of creating suspense, even though the jumpscare mechanic just isn't a good one to rely on. In this I think we agree.
My point is don't just diss it because it has mechanics you don't like. There are definitely mechanics I don't like in DBD, but that doesn't make me disparage the whole game just because of them.
Get that sorry excuse of a horror game out of here. Lmao.
Maybe a Five Nights suit for the Clown...
Not to be mean but, FNAF itself is really really horror/youtube bait. If they were to make a FNAF Animatronic, It would HAVE to be able to jumpscare. It's power should be this:
Broken Voice Box.
You take pleasure in scaring your victims, not killing them.
You can press M2, R1 or RB to activate a channel. Once this is full, unleash a scream attack that, 10 meters infront of you, causes survivors to scream and become hindered for 5 seconds. This will also add half a bar to the fear amount. Fear can be levelled up 3 times. At level one, hear the terror radius near you anytime you are running for atleast 5 seconds. Level 2 will cause all of the above and have a 10% chance for any skill check to have no great skill check section. At level 3, the Hindered status affect is PERMANENT. Plus all the above with the terror radius being right behind you forever when running and the skill check chance being 50%. You can lower this fear meter back to one by simply being near other survivors or completed gens. You cannot lower the meter below fear 1.
This isn't balanced at all but I think this is more consistent with Freddy's and fits him more.
You're comparing mechanics from a game that relied on the jumpscare factor to actually make it appealing for people to complete.
People played that game solely to finish it, and survive the "horrific night" till 6 AM or whatever. Nothing about that game is scary unless you're either not desensitized like most people are these days, or you're a child (No offense.) The only reason people thought it was "scary" was because of the jumpscares, even the name implies my exact point.
It was just a sudden thing that pops up on your screen to make you jump, its literally the bottom of the barrel way to get a scare out of someone...
Despite everything people complain about here on a daily basis, BHVR still has a team, they still have production going into their work. FnaF is just a meme, and its just another community that certain people latch onto so they can theorize about things in a game with the most cookie cutter lore on the planet.
Nothing about that game doesn't scream toxicity whenever I hear about it, that's why I diss that game, its not a game, its just a mess.
FNAF may make players scream through jumpscares, but in-game they are murderous animatronics that kill. In-universe, they aren't trying to make people scream or scare people.
Yeah but heres the thing, in universe they don't want to kill people. They are literally malfunctioning. They aren't murderous, murderous implies they wish to kill. They don't. The jumpscare is the most iconic thing of FNAF so making it the animatronics power is the obvious choice.
They do kill, though. They don't scare. Making their power revolve around something that doesn't tie into them at all in-universe doesn't really make sense to me.
What do you mean doesn't tie into them at all in universe? I genuinely do not understand how it isn't in universe. The Freddy Files, A CANON IN UNIVERSE BOOK, explicitly shows you how to avoid getting jumpscared with tips and trivia. It's the entire point of the book. They do kill but what is FNAF known for. JUMPSCARES
If you really wanna go in universe, how bout we have a cybernetic girl who has different forms for different ages, OR how bout you be a purple man stabbing kids outside pizzerias. IF YOU REALLY WANNA GET IN UNIVERSE WHY AREN'T YOU SUGGESTING THESE.
I'm not sure you understand what "in-universe" means. The Freddy Files, from what I am reading, is just a superjuiced guide book. It does not canonically exist in the FNaF world. "In-universe" means it exists/happens in the world of Five Nights at Freddy's. The lore in the world of FNaF is not about how the animatronics jumpscare people. It is about how they kill people and are also probably haunted by the souls of murder victims and whatnot.
If we were to implement such characters into DBD, we want to try and make them as true to their canon as possible.
William Afton aka "purple man" aka Springtrap would MAYBE be the only candidate from that franchise for dbd.
Although im not sure what his kit could be.
Im pretty sure the fnaf guy or our devs could actually design a dbd-suitable skin for springtrap. Might actually be a cheap deal for bhvr, werent the later fnaf titels all free?
About the jumpscare thing... Hag, Shape.
Snark aside,sadly jumpscares are nowadays the "horror" in games and even movies. Its cheap. The good ol stuff simply became "boring".
I skimmed through the original Halloween movie. All that really rather really creepy but realistic stuff ( i liked that scene with the random kid bumping into myers followed by that rather silent car stalking scene) would maybe put people to sleep nowadays.
Horror sadly became oversaturated eith cheap jumpscarrs abd excessive gore.
Everyone who wanted to make a FNAF chapter used or wanted to use only purple guy/Springtrap. I thought that there are so many variants and assortments of characters in this franchise it would be a waste to only use one so use went and made a way for the most know variants of characters to take part ex. Bear, Bunny, chicken, fox characters. All the different versions can be cosmetic packs
"The lore in the world of FNaF is not about how the animatronics jumpscare people. It is about how they scare people and are also probably haunted by the souls of murder victims and whatnot." Those 2 sentences contradict eachother. Here's what you just said. The universe is not about how the animatronics scare people. It's about how they scare people.
That was a typo on my part. I meant to say that it is about how they kill people and are also probably haunted.
TAG figuring out Fnaf lore is way above our pay grade. However we overlook that the Entity makes its followers want to kill for it, so regardless of them wanting to kill or not before hand is irrelevant. In the Entity's realms they will kill for it.
The only thing I can see it working, is putting a human inside one of those spring lock costumes. But even then it wouldn't really fit imo.
Ahem... Not to be rude but um... Scream was a tv series for a long time. Stranger things is a Netflix show. Leatherface is based on a true story. Anything can happen my friend...
Not rude at all. When I said movies, i was including TV. Leatherface, I would argue, is still a movie character. Otherwise the killer would be named Ed Gein. 5 Nights at Freddys is a kid's game. Would not fit
Okay, good points... I agree you could argue leatherface is a movie character... Yeah... I guess deep down we won't know anything until the fmaf movie's rating is announced
I think the only way a FNaF chapter could work is if they do a character redesign. Sort of like Bowser from Super Mario games to Smash Bros (they act and seem completely different).
Personally, I think that Springtrap would be the best canidate for a FNaF killer if they were to add one. The others would still be cool, but would stick out like a sore thumb.
I know many people are against the idea, but the potential to make a great killer is there.
EDIT: For those saying that FNaF is jumpscare reliant, there's alot more to the series than what meets the eye.
Oh, I was joking around about how everyone seems to disagree. While I wouldn't mind, some people I know would stop playing the game altogether if they get any of that childplay horror stuff, such as horrible creepypasta characters that people like for whatever reason.
It's popular enough to warrant being in dbd, but I don't think there would be a way to implement it into the game. The only reason the games get a bad rep is how horrible the community around it is. The same thing happened to Undertale.
the community WAS bad when it was at its peak because it was popular so assholes latched on to the trend but when it died down the non toxic people stayed becasue they liked and the loud obnoxious trend hoppers left.
Can this post comment section stop latching onto a franchises identity from 2015?
What ive noticed since i first put this idea here is that all the no it gets aren't due to that the game mechanics wouldn't work, but simply because they don't like the franchise. Lol
So I a big dead by daylight fan I going say this I read 99.9% of post you guys are being silly five nights of freddy maybe a jump scare game but it is a vary big game on it own a lot of people enjoy it if your calling it stupid well you may as well call mike Myers stupid because he just as scary in the movies as a banana u see all his stuff coming not only that but a lot of the mix perks are good a lot of kills have the same perk in the game there are some slight change but not much like the chainsaw kills if ether one touches u with it ability u instantly down and there both gokd at trolling the hook as for being able to sabotage the killer that could be fun a weakness for kills but at the same time a risk for svoirs because u dont know were they they are then adding to the jump scare aspect of the game and be perrty annoying if your. On a gen and u get comfortable with the heart beat because it goes away and comes back all the time
To be honest five nights of freddy is a good ideal because it going not only draw adults to dead by daylight but little kids and sorry to put this way but on console the game is dieing because there not many player so they should be trying to reach out of there comfort zone with killers kinda like they did with legion
You just change the title to (THREAD DELETED)
and they’ll delete it but what was wrong with your post?
I liked your idea
I'm sorry your post/ creation/ idea was scrutinized and demolished by people who instantly turn things they don’t agree with down.
This is the creations part of the forum you should be allowed without any kind of negative reaction to post something you put your time into.
