Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ►
You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

    Guys I think that the crying child’s name is Gregory because in the new security breach trailer it shows a person in front of cameras or something and I think it’s the crying child because the person is wearing the classic grey and black striped shirt with messy hair and possibly holding something that could be his Fred bear plush any way back to the part about the name in the trailer a voice more specifically a females voice meaning we could get a new character or it could just be Vanny. I know this is not 100% correct but it could be

    I wonder if the lyrics("All I see is an empty room," "No more joy, an empty tomb.") that ballora sings refers to fnaf 3 because, I think that the empty room is referring to the secret room where afton dies and spring trap was created, and the empty tomb reffers to what was supposed to be afton's tomb.

    The crying child's name is Gregory because in the security breach trailer if you brighten it up where it shows the kid in the security room or something he has to white or grey stripes on his shirt like the crying child

    The Survival log book does say tally up your score at the end of one of the mini fun quizzes. This is an extremely good theory but we can't prove anything unless we get confirmation from Scott and that's not going to happen.

    Hey game theory. I have a theory for u and its pretty good. U see, it starts with the comic on Chapter 1. The numbers 5 and 3=53, so I went to page 53 and I found out that page 53 doesn't have a number so I went thru the book, listing every page that didn't have a page number and I got: 2, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 23, 26, 27, 29, 31, 33, 34, 36, 37, 38, 40, 41, 45, 47, 48, 52, 53, 59, 63, 64, 67, 68, 70, 75, 79, 80, 86, 89, 90, 95, 98, 99, 109. As we can see, the numbers are being repeated. So, I went thru the book AGAIN to try and find something that was repeated and I found 'My name'. It was always covered up so I tried to find a name and Mike was the only one that made sense meaning Mike is the link to solving everything! This is something u may want to look at very closely and see if u can find the link between Mike and the fnaf lore. :)
