I want to address a serious issue here, not just on PMC.

WARNING: THIS IS GOING TO BE AN EXTREMELY LONG AND EXTREMELY TOUCHY BLOG. FEELINGS WILL BE SHARED.

And no, moderators, this is not going to be a ranting blog, even though the picture above may make it seem so. Despite the fact that I actually want to go ballistic in this blog for how long I've let my anger build up inside, I'm going to be very calm and very mature. This is going to be...constructive criticism.

I want each and every one of you to learn something. This NEEDS to stay up, and this NEEDS to be shared. 

I've had quite enough. I'm going to tell you very politely what is going wrong and how to change.

I don't even know where to begin. There's so much that needs to change. I just know I'm going to miss something. I'm going to keep on editing this until I think it's complete and perfect.

Welcome to my most serious blog about Five Night's at Freddy's.

I should have done this a long time ago.


The Fanbase

More Games! More Games!

Ever since FNAF was released in 2014, it garnerned a lot of attention from kids ages 10 to 13. Of course, there are other age groups, but I'm going to be focusing on the 10-13 age group because they're the majority.

Listen, kids...I know you're young. It was only a couple of years ago I was your age too. And I know you mean well. I know you like this game series. I know I can't take away your innocence of not knowing right from wrong.

But I think you can benefit from what I'm about to say.

I know where to begin. When the sequel to FNAF was announced, everybody went crazy with delight. So did I. Then it was released and people begged Scott to make a third game.

Scott made a third game, but not neccessarily due to the fanbase's requests.

Then everybody begged him to make a fourth game.

So he did, but not neccessarily due to the fanbase's requests.

Then people begged him to make a fifth game.

Thankfully, he didn't. Not quite.

Please understand what I'm saying. This is so rude and disrespectful. Many of your age group seems to think Scott is some sort of machine that just spews games out on demand. He obviously isn't. He's a real person with a wife and two kids. He works by himself to make these games. He constantly has to have his lawyer take legal action on merchandise that is being sold without permission.

And yet nobody pays attention to this. You continue to beg him to make more games.

You should feel lucky. You got 4 excellent-quality games in under a year. You shouldn't keep on wanting more. Just think about it: would you rather have a series end with just a few titles, but them all being REALLY good, or a never-ending series that keeps dragging on so it's not fun anymore?

I thought so.

Attacking Other Fanbases

Again, I can't blame you for wanting to protect your interests.. I'm kind of doing that right now, to be honest. 

But every single time another person says they don't like the series, you go insane. 

It's their honest opinion. Not everybody has to like this series. Let them be them.

HOWEVER, I am not okay with people making videos or comments "ranting" about how much the series sucks and offending the fanbase and the developer himself. You'd be surprised how many Youtubers do this. Will.craft Animations, Hunter (the guy who's a brony and has his "It Sucks But I Still Played It" series), and Jacksepticeye are just a few examples. Believe me, I'm going to be getting to them later.

Even Pewdiepie has a lesson to learn here, because this guy is the MASTER at faking how scared he is even in crappy horror games, but couldn't even TRY in FNAF 4, only putting the videos up on Youtube due to popular demand.

I just don't know how to feel about that.

The Saddest Part

You know Dawko, Razzbowski, Zombiewarssmt, TheIronMango, PrettyGrumpyBear, Smike, and 8BitGaming?

All of them are Youtubers who focus mainly on FNAF. However, all of them post other content too.

Their FNAF-related content gets around 100,000 views per video.

Their non-FNAF-related content gets around 3000.

This applies to all of them.

I can't describe how heartbroken this makes me feel. It seems most of you only expect them to upload nothing but FNAF, and you don't care about their other content.

All of the Youtubers listed above have shared their sadness and frustration in this topic. Dawko has gone so far as to quit his Fallout 4 series because it wasn't getting any support.

Even I went through this. I'm not a Youtuber (YET), but when I first started out, I posted nothing but FNAF skins. Then I ran out of ideas, and I posted my first non-FNAF related skin, Professor Quirrell, with an awesome new shading style, and I expected to gets the hundreds of views I still got when I did FNAF skins.

I got four.

This continued for my next skin, Cleverbot Evie, and I became so downhearted I quit skinning for a while. I only garnished the same amount of attention as I once did when I started doing blogs.

And if this wasn't enough, you wouldn't believe some of the things people will do to try to make the Youtubers post nothing but FNAF.

They will threaten, bully, and rant about that Youtuber.

So, what is my "constructive criticism"? What advice do I have to suggest you change?

I'd suggest you realize FNAF isn't going to be around forever. It's sad, I know, but you have to move on. 

The Haters

"What an autisic fanbase!"

I see this in just about every single video ever made of FNAF. Somebody will say, "I hate FNAF. The fanbase milked the series to its core and ruined the games. They're so autistic."

These types of comments get about 80 or more likes.

Listen, guys. I don't like the fanbase very much either. That's why I'm making this, a constructive criticism and not a rant blog, to change them. But I'm also changing YOU.

Autism is perhaps the most wrongly-used word in the English dictionary. I know two people who have it and they are just like normal people. I also have Asperger's Syndrome, which is similar to Autism, and let me just say this without making this blog be a rant:

It hurts.

And don't judge the games based on its fanbase. They didn't ruin the games. They ruined their image, that's what. I know you're trying to help.

But please do it so in a nice way.

"The Developer Should Hang Himself"

Story time.

Once I was on the FNAF wiki, and I went onto one of the pages and saw a reverted edit. I looked at the page's history and saw something horrific.

All the information on the page had been erased and changed to this:

"FNAF is a terrible game. Scott should hang himself."

If you could ever bring yourself to say or think something like that, I have no pity for you. None. I'd like to rant about you all day long, but since I don't want this blog to be deleted, I can't. I'm going to be just as polite as I have been the entire way throughout.

You should never ask anybody to die just because they made something you didn't like. Imagine somebody said that about you. How would that make you feel?

Then why would you do it to Scott?

A message to Jacksepticeye

Jack...I want to focus on you in particular.

On August 15, 2014, I was browsing through Youtube videos and came across a video on your channel.

It just so happened to be Five Nights at Freddy's.

I clicked on it, watched it, and fell in love with the games. And now here I am.

I knew for a long time you became distasteful of the series after the first one. I know a lot of people did. And here's the thing:

I don't care.

Unlike some people, I will let you have your own opinion on these games.

But don't you think I'm finished with you yet.

Only about a week ago, I finally watched your latest Akinator video, and came across you telling the FNAF fanbase how ridiculous they are.

And let me just say...wow.

You don't know how much that hurt me. Not only am I a part of the fanbase, or even the fact that this was coming from the person who I had discovered FNAF from, but I realized something right then and there.

You are not quite the same kind and humble Jack as I remember.

I've been noticing this for a while. In that one Boibot and Evie video, you openly stated how upset you were that your idea had been taken by "smaller channels", and you muttered to be careful about sharing ideas on your channel from now on. People automatically assumed you meant Mattshea, you "good ol' friend", and they went to attack him like crazy. You had to apologize and everything.

You just don't think about your actions beforehand, do you? You even had the choice to edit that part out of the video to not hurt other people. You should have thought about how snarky you sounded.

It's not just that, either. You seem bent on making fun of FNAF. In your Life is Strange playthrough, you went onto Victoria's computer and looked at how many subscribers she had on Youtube. You noticed she had a couple thousand and remarked, "Oh, she must have been playing Five Nights at Freddy's. You know how popular THOSE people become! Hahahaha!"

You never apologized to Dawko, Razzbowski, Zombie, 8Bit, PGB, Smike, MatPat, Markiplier, IronMango, or anybody else, now did you?

That was one seriously offensive jab. It's as if you think that all people who upload FNAF are only doing it for views.

I know you probably think you were doing absolutely nothing wrong. And to be honest, maybe I am overreacting. You are still the same man I've known for so long. You haven't changed.

But you've never seemed this bent on hurting a game's reputation before.

So please...please...don't.

The Good Things

Yes, there ARE some good things about the haters and the fanbase. It's not all bad.

Certain parts of the fanbase are extremely considerate. For example, Dawko Five Nights at St. Jude's event raised over 300,000 bucks. And I know that many of you do care about Scott, just like I do.

And even the younger parts of the fanbase aren't all bad. Not even close.

Many FNAF fans exist on PMC itself, and a big handful of them are my close friends. They're all very, very nice people. It's just that the bad apples stick out like a sore thumb.

And as for the haters...?

Well, people like Jack - who don't mean to be so offensive - are simply trying to help out, like I am. They just aren't doing it in the best way that they can.

I hope you all learned something, and please do share this around with as many people as you can. If you think I missed something, I'll add it. Peace out!

wow, nice way of addressing the fanbase.

i used to love fnaf, but i lost my interest after the third game because it got so gory.

i still respect the fanbase,but i just honestly can't be nice to the bad side. That's the place i honestly cannot stand, but i still respect the fanbase, even though i don't like it, and try not to get into fights.

I feel bad for Scott. If he does end up killing himself, the fanbase and the haters would be to blame. The fanbase keeps demanding more games out of Scott. The fact that he produced as many games that he did in one year is astonishing. Pressuring Scott for something he hasn't promised is wrong. It really is. When a game has a long anticipated update that the devs push back, people have a good reason to be angry. When people hate on a developer for not releasing a game that hasn't even been promised, that is extremely wrong. I would laugh at how guilty people would feel when he really did kill himself. 

Haters are aso a problem. If you dont like the game, pay no mind to it. Of course because of it's popularity, it comes up very often. Type in the word five in a search engine and see for yourself. I get annoyed with the game myself. People in my school obsess over it, along with some younger relatives. But again, telling someone to kill themselves is wrong.

I also want to adress the issue of hypocrisy. Here is the definition of hypocrisy:

Hypocrisy: The practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform.

The fanbase needs to realize that they can't force him to make the game. They should try to make 4 games of the same skill level as he did. It's not so easy when you think about it, is it? There is a moral high-ground here, and Scott is on it. He doesn't have to do anything. He could stop right now and be set for life.  Don't take him for granted either.

Also I want to adress the problem of using it to gain popularity on various sites. In your case, I understand. Now youtube is another thing entirely. Of course FNAF and any other popular game is used to get views. But that doesn't mean it's right. When someone does a playthrough of a popular game for views, it really sets me off because everyone knows how wrong it is.

tl;dr

Don't tell Scott to kill himself or hate on him. Will laugh when people feel guilty about telling him to kill himself if and when he does so. Dont demand a bunch o games or be a hypocrite.Getting popularity on websites from prominent games is bad too.

A very, very important point of yours contradicts itself. 

You say this:
"I am not okay with people making videos or comments "ranting" about how much the series sucks and offending the fanbase. . ."

Followed by this:
"And if this wasn't enough, you wouldn't believe some of the things people will do to try to make the Youtubers post nothing but FNAF. 

They will threaten, bully, and rant about that Youtuber."

And you question why Jack would make such a video. From what I've read, or heard about him, Jack is somewhat mature, when he's not yelling into his microphone. If he's being threatened to make videos of the FNAF sequels, by FNAF fans, he's very likely to dislike that game, and thus, that fanbase. It's cause-effect; there's no reason at all for him to openly portray his disgust for the FNAF fanbase without some form of antagonizing from that community. 

Of course he's being threatened to make those type of videos, if he's actually posting hate videos directed towards FNAF. You said it yourself, he made the first one, and then disliked the following games; this would very likely incur a reaction from people who found his first FNAF video/series entertaining, and leading to him being harassed for not playing them/disliking them. He then posts a video trying to defend himself, and now we're here.

I'm actually pretty sure Jack is one of the few Youtubers who is actually not being bullied by the FNAF fanbase to make more FNAF videos.

Jack's fanbase is very mature; he always took pride in how well everybody gets along. I've seen very little talk about FNAF on his channel; it seems like most FNAF fans realize they can't win a fight against him to post more FNAF on his channel. Jack is VERY strict about what goes on his channel; if he doesn't want more of it, he won't post it anymore, and there's nothing any of us can do about it. Take Skate 3, for example. When Jack stopped doing that series, people literally BEGGED him to bring it back, but Jack repeatedly said no, and gave very good reasons as to why, and everybody eventually just gave up. I think the FNAF fans sort of all just drew away from his channel and went to go pester another Youtuber or two.

In his second latest Akinator video, with the comments Jack made about the fanbase, he actually never once mentioned the fanbase's attitude towards him, which again makes me sure that FNAF fans don't bother him as much.

So all in all, Jack is hating on the series for absolutely no justifiable reason whatsoever. There's no revenge involved, he's just doing it to look better than them, which ironically makes him look worse. Scott even said this himself: "Why does it seem like every time somebody rants about a fanbase they end up looking more immature than they fanbase they were ranting about?"

I don't call Scott a genius for no reason. :P

And even if the FNAF fanbase DID do such things to Jack, it would still be unexcusable on his part. He's 25; he's mature enough to know that not every action needs a retaliation. Making such comments for revenge would still sink him down to their level. He'd be no better than they would be, even with such an "excuse".

I do really appreciate you reading. I think it's awesome you managed to catch that, and I'm glad you're trying to question why I said what I said. The only thing is, from the way you worded it, you don't know Jack as well as I do. I've been with him for a year and a half, since he only had 450,000 subs.

And even if I didn't, I'd still say something very similar to all of this.

You brought up some very good points. Thanks for that. :)

By saying "even if the FNAF fanbase DID do such things to Jack," I can safely assume you have no confirmation, right? With that in mind, what exactly makes you think there isn't a chance he hasn't been hassled to make more videos? I'm simply playing Devil's Advocate in that regard, but then, so are you. 

Moreso, why would someone who is so adamant about not posting what others want him to post be so harsh towards a community? Assuming how well you know Jack, is this something he would normally do? I don't see mentions of him "hating" on any other communities, so if something is bothering him so much as to post a video ranting about it, surely something, even the smallest thing, came from that community and aggravated him. 

Lastly, and somewhat off-tangent, if someone is being attacked, it is full and always within their rights to defend themselves. There is absolutely no reason for why someone should be "mature" and let people abuse/hassle/provoke him.

By saying "even if the FNAF fanbase DID do such things to Jack," I mean this: let's pretend for a moment that they did. In actual reality, they didn't, of course, but for the sake of this argument, let's pretend they did." I wasn't saying that there was a chance that I was wrong.

Because there isn't.  I literally explained this already. Jack has never, and never will, let himself and his channel content be controlled by a bunch of twelve-year-olds. He's too stubborn and proud for that. You can post hate comments to him a thousand times over; he just laughs it off. If he doesn't like a game, he will not play it anymore.

I suppose now's the time I mentioned that since the first game, Jack's never finished all five nights of the other titles. Why? Because he says it'd all be alike. This, of course, bothers some people, including me to a certain extent, but he doesn't care. That doesn't stop him. It just shows that he won't continue doing something for the sake of the audience.

No, it's not something he would normally do. That's why it hurts me so much. And AGAIN, I've explained this one already. He's humiliated that he ever posted such a game that garnered so much attention by immature twelve-year-olds that don't know when enough is enough. He regrets his decision, and feels that it reflects on his channel. Nothing on his channel before had ever gotten such attention like that. Jack doesn't want such a game like FNAF with a fanbase like it has to be associated with his channel, so he tries to convince the community - and himself - that the games are horrible, and it's all the fanbase's fault, not his own for choosing to upload the content in the first place, knowing perfectly well how much power he has to make something popular. He has 7 million subscribers, after all, and back then he only had about two million less.

Don't you see? He doesn't want the FNAF fanbase to be drawn into his channel and expect more of it from him, which will only make them worse and "destroy" Jack's channel and perfectly mature fanbase. He's trying to disassociate himself from the franchise at any costs, even hurting his own fans if he has to. It's nothing personal, it's just fear. I don't even know if he recognizes it for himself, but that's exactly why he's doing these things. It's just so obvious to me: the things he says - that the community is humilating and they're destroying the games - to his dislike of the games after the first one, to how protective he is of his own fanbase - it all makes sense, and that's exactly how it's spelt out to me and anyone else observant enough.

No, it isn't. Haven't you ever seen one of those movies where the hero of the story has the chance to kill the villan who ruined their lives, but then the hero's sidekick says "No, you'll be just as bad as him, let him live and put him in prison"? That's what I'm trying to get across here. Another good example is if someone is bullying you, is it better to punch them in the face and start calling them names back or ignore them or in a worst-case scenario ask a teacher for help? That's what I thought. Choosing to copy the bully's actions back to them makes you look just as disgusting to others as the bully is. In Jack's case, IF the FNAF fanbase were attacking him (which, like I said before, let's PRETEND they were), his best options would be to either just ignore them completely, like most Youtubers (including himself) usually do, or pull a Pewdiepie and disable the comments forever, which he has already said he would never, ever do. Maturity does in fact play a big part in this.

So, what I'm receiving from this, were I to wrap it back around to the original point of the blog, is that the FNAF fanbase majority is mostly 12 year olds, who have gone on and ruined the community. Since they are the majority, it's entirely justified that they "represent" the FNAF community on an overall, social range. With that in mind, please understand that it's entirely reasonable for me, when I refer to "FNAF fanbase", to be referring to the 12 year imbeciles that plague Youtube comments and the skinning section on this site. Would I be right?

EDIT: Not ignoring your rebuttle on Jack, but I don't really see a point that I can argue on. You answered them decently well.

You would be correct.

Just keep in mind that not all twelve-year-olds are bad, but about 85% or more of them are.

And thank you. You certainly did a very good job on your side of the argument, too.

Well, anytime someone makes fun of or talks negative about fnaf the giant horde of fnaf-kids comes down to protect it. That you can't deny :P

Just this one blog changed my perspective about the entire FNaF universe. I congratulate you for making such a beautiful piece of literature.

These types of comments are the best. Thank you so much! :)

I do want to become an author one day, so calling my literature beautiful really helps boost my confidence. :D <3

I disagree on the first part.

Yes making games is hard and all, however you completely seem to undermine the revenue that he generates with each new game.

Let's take the first fnaf game. Although I do not know the amoutn of sales it has exactly, it does have 15,172 reviews. Why does this matter? Well, people have to have purchased the game or been gifted it in order to create a review for it. This means that in total it's generated atleast $75,708, or around $60,566 to Scott(estim. with 20% rev share from steam)

He's far from a machine that just spews games out on demand.

Now don't go thinking that I'm one of the people who beg for a sequel, I personally hate the series in the first place, however saying that asking for another game is rude and disrespectful is wrong. Obviously he would make it to his own accord, and he surely would be compensated for creating it.

But it is.

He is NOT doing it for the money, and in order for him to MAKE money these games have to be GOOD.

Did you know that each FNAF game that comes after the next has worse reviews than the previous?

He's not going to make money if people don't like it, and these games aren't going to be good if people are forcing him to make them.

How exactly do you know that he isn't doing it for the money? Are you just making assumptions because it fits with what you're saying?


Listen, people don't make games only to please other people. Some part of it they have to like, or else the first game would've never been created.

If he wasn't doing it for the money, then how come he's made a total of 4 games? If he hates doing it, then he would stop doing it. Some kids begging online for another game doesn't make someone dedicate months of their time into making a game. It's hard enough doing it when you want to, much less if you didn't want to in the first place.

Because I  know that man far better than you do.

I wish that were true. Just look at how many crappy things we're getting out of Hollywood. -_-

It's because of the story. The story behind the games is so complex it can't be fit into just one.
