The original Five Nights at Freddy's spawned many sequels and sister games. Over the years I've played them all and through that stumbled upon the phenomena that is FNAF fan games. Games so loved by FNAF fans that those games have ALSO created their own universes - some linked to the original game and some all their own. These games have gotten so big that it's a wonder they haven't been struck down by the copyright powers that be - and there is a VERY specific reason they haven't. You see, Scott Cawthon has learned one thing that most game companies never have and likely never will - community.

    Funny Topic Mat if you see a comment like 2 or 4 months late, a game developer who goes by the name Yandere Dev who is known for his six years of not putting ONE character in the game and protecting the Yandere title like it’s his own is one I wanted you to talk about and how he made a lot of amazing projects like his game Yandere Simulator and either forced them to take it down or harass them

    If you grow up in Germany, you definitely grow up with the original tales. My parents read them to me and my brother and today my friends who have kids read them to their children. The Disney movies usually come later, when the kids are old enough to watch long movies.

    This is why I love becoming a part of fandoms! It’s crazy that one person or a team of creators can affect hundreds if not thousands with their own work and have fans create things to show their appreciation. The fact that one game or show can inspire people to create their own games, art, music, theories and such gives me all the warm fuzzy feelings!!!

    It just goes to show. A real lover to their community will do what Nintendon't. Thank you Scott for showing us again that we deserve to give thanks by showing our thanks through fangames, art, etc. This video affected me personally. In a way that if I ever get into something that creates a fanbase that wants to create fanworks, I'd let them.

I mainly know him as the loud bald guy related to my adoptive aunt so hearing his name come up in a ILhistory video is one of those wtf moments.

    I have always been a HUGE fan of fan art, fanfic, etc. If I have recently watched something new and love it, I immediately want more. I go to Fanfic and DeviantArt, and I applaud them. My brain goes ninety miles an hour coming up with fanfics of my own [I literally have a journal overflowing with ideas I haven't even written yet! I just wish there wasn't always this looming threat to tear it all away. For me personally, I don't do it for money, I do it for entertainment purposes only. Because I love the original content so much, I don't want to leave the world, the characters, the experiences. I love just love fandom

    scott is just funding them. i dont think he would try and claim anything the creators do from now on. he appreciated the fan games, and also possibly reminded of himself in early game developments. he just seems too humble (and still in shock in my opinion) to try and cancel his fans creations. i do think that technically he could try and claim ownership of the fan games/characters. but this seems like he could also be trying to protect the best fan games in some way. fnaf 1 was his last ditch effort to be in the game industry. and him seeing all these people love his game so much to make their own game? he seems honored and wants to help them.

    I know fnaf does seem over-extended sometimes, but I just love following the lore of the franchise. It turned out to be something my nine-year-old and I have in common. In fact, he took over my whole google profile, changed my user name to purple guy, and changed my icon accordingly. Last year I almost lost my life due to illness, and vowed to always pay heed to my childrens interests from now on. For now I research fnaf through the likes of MatPats vids, but hope to be in a physical condition one day to play the games myself. Main point is, this franchise is great, and long may it last. Hats off to Scott Cawthon, he has given us something to write home about. Also thanks to MatPat, for giving me so much insight, which in turn brought me so close to my son.
