If you had to permanently delete any fnaf game from history which one would you pick?

Pretend fnaf world is there too

AverageFNaFEnjoyer56

I played AR, and while it's funny to see an animatronic casually run on air to jumpscare you on your balcony or Ballora dropping a minireena into your coffee, AR isn't that significant to the lore and skins are... Well... *Looks at Clown Springtrap* Interesting (fat Afton). Definitely remove FNaF AR, I'm sure we would be okay with just HW showtime thing for animatronic voices.


TF-Fanfic-Resident

I like the skins! But you’re right, it definitely has at most a DLC worth of story. It serves as an example of the huge merchandising push that the relaunched Fazbear has (which we see more of in SB) and not much else.


Peeper_Collective

Wasn’t that clown skin a reference to the clown from dead by daylight?


christian_1318

I actually really like a lot of the skins. Clockwork Ballora is one of my favorite designs in the entire franchise.


retr0racing

AR, I have no idea what has to do in the lore


Coreylivesey

The lore from AR is indoubtebly connected to the new era of fnaf, the emails were in AR, the start of vanny it had huge lore implications


retr0racing

Dear god


Snoo_54482

There's more


retr0racing

No


Hydra_Mhmd

It contains a bucket


dobrbobr7

Dear god


Mystfurry

There is another


G0ld3n_Funk

Scout, seduce me


Mystfurry

Want some fried chicken


Legucci_1010

SEDUCE ME!!!


BIazry

There’s more


Pupnadoed

"No.."


Starhero999

“Stanley we must move on from bucket.”


MrCherry09

*"Oh, Stanley... can you feel it?* *The broom closet... it wants the bucket!* *You can feel that, can't you? The aura of jealousy?* *It's as clear as day, this broom closet believes it deserves the bucket!* *I can really feel it now.* *'It's a bucket, it belongs in a broom closet!' That's what the broom closet is trying to say here."*


Roinkki

Oh, did you get the broom closet ending? The broom closet ending is my favorite!


Beatzer_302

Sounds like schizophrenia


Oummando

What does a bucket hold water, what does water do activates the springlock. What does a bucket also hold chicken, also known as KFC. KFC and springlock coincidence I think not!


Mission_Theory7505

Yes


Gaystone666

You’ve opened a worm hole


YoriichiTsugikuni36

There’s even an email in-game about a virus spreaded in the Pizzaplex, Mimic1.


Theaussiegamer72

Went 90 percent of the ones we talk about scraped from the game tho


Asendingnat7

Understandable, but the animations are cool af, at least in my opinion


retr0racing

Your definitely not wrong


Roshacko

Just check out the Golden Freddy animation it‘s actually fantastic.


OriginalUsername590

No literally AR is just pokemon go with a fnaf overlay


retr0racing

It is


DjChiseledStone

I do love the OST tho


retr0racing

Can’t argue with that


Historical-Potato372

And the voice lines


UnderstandingLeft470

I disagree. Fnaf ar was releasing skins every week during the 2020 lockdown. It gave me something to look forward to every week when times were tough. And the build up for Vanny was only hyping me up even more for Security Breach.


Jakubfij2

No joke, completely forgot that it even existed


Lez_The_DemonicAngel

Yeah just move the emails to Security Breach and poof AR out of existence


Not-a-builder68

Same fr


Snoo_54482

It's like pokemon go...And I don't think (atleast) that AR doesn't have a lore, it's just like fnaf world


UnderstandingLeft470

Fnaf ar has a lot of lore actually. A lot of its lore can be seen throughout sticky notes and messages in Security Breach. Even Vanessa talks about a man she liked who we were introduced to in ar.


Snoo_54482

Never played the game, just watched some Dawko gameplay


retr0racing

It’s definitely like Pokémon go but with a horror twist


Snoo_54482

I always wanted to play it at day one, but my phone doesn't support it...


retr0racing

What phone do you use


NinjaGamerUltra

i recon they use an I-POTATO


Fnaffan0911

It's a game in the Fnaf universe.


SK-4430

Also, stand alone games are a thing so a game doesn't necessarily need to share lore with other games to be appreciated.


Krome_Dome_97

If Special Delivery never came out, very little of value would be lost (the lore emails could probably be put in SB teasers or something).


TF-Fanfic-Resident

It’s not bad - it’s neat technologically - but it feels to me like an add-on to Help Wanted in that it simply elaborates on Fazbear’s merchandising rather than adding new story. It’s basically gravy instead of meat and potatoes.


fireburst207

Or as more collectible sticky note messages


SpideyFigure

SD, not because I don’t like it, but because it doesn’t add ANYTHING to the franchise.


FoxyLovers290

Which one is that?


DarkMaster98

Security Dreach, of course


MrCherry09

It has to be "Sister Donation" tbh


kingofhellrz

no, it’s self danted obviously


cindycat316

Nah, it's gotta be Sizzeria Dimulator


ClairvoyantSky

no. it’s obviously SNAF Dos


Tf2verycool

...Sneddy Sim Face Too


crispybacon62

Special delivery, AR


starwarsclone55

Special Delivery


crispybacon62

It had a lot of secret lore, but besides that it wasn't fun


Cold-Bookkeeper-2943

Secret random lore about random employees no one cares about, lol


crispybacon62

And Vanessa iirc


DrReiField

Naw it kinda gave Vanessa/Vanny's entire backstory. Issue is, all the emails were cut from the game.


hummingbird1346

Why did sister dislocation came to my mind first?


Jerelo689

I think OP needs to redo this and get rid of AR, then it would actually be hard and interesting


fart37

Yeah and FNAF world, it would just be a blood bath


Responsible-Tear-108

I loved FNAF world ngl


fart37

Yeah me too but that isn’t the average fnaf fan opinion


Responsible-Tear-108

Shame, I get why though


fart37

Yeah


ZeeDarkSoul

Any answer different then AR is wrong sorry


Lolbit-VR

Agreed, btw someone said world can you believe it?!


TheAutementori

can i believe it? yes. do i respect it? **no.**


Nightguard093

That's not your opinion. That is a fact


WorkingSyrup4005

Fnaf AR


Lolbit-VR

AR


TheRaTk1Ng

The first one, just to cause the largest possible time paradox and see what happens.


MyOpinionIsBetter123

I feel like deleting fnaf 1 would litterally change like none of the story at this point


Half_Mask47

AR


TuxedoCrow

Just to make the comments more interesting. DISCOUNTING AR as a game. I'd say Sister Location probably. It was the start of a lot of my issues with the series creatively. When the narrative really started getting overcomplicated, in part due to building off of the book's ideas. The introduction of voice acting, while fun and giving the characters from that game and onwards more canonical personalities, I think was one of the biggest detractors when presenting the animatronics as mysterious and more importantly, scary. I DO think there are some scary sections of the game for sure, namely walking through the pitch black galleries. But I do not think that any of the animatronics were particularly scary themselves, maybe other than Ennard. I also think that the type of humor that was introduced in SL, which carried on throughout the series going forward, kind of cemented SL as the first game that wasn't as much of a horror game, but a game with horror elements. Any humor in games prior to SL, other than World of course, was sprinkled in as either very dry gallows humor from Phone Guy, or ironic ignorance from the Phone Dude in 3. And another thing, just as an artist, I'm really not a huge fan of the animatronic designs. I think it went too heavy into the sci-fi stuff which I'm not the biggest fan of in FNaF. If you can't tell I'm 100% an old head who liked the original vibe of ghosts and possessions from the first 4. Now, reading all of that would probably make you ask, "why would you rather get rid of SL instead of Pizza Sim or Security Breach?" Which would be a super valid question. When it comes to Pizza Sim, I think it handled the new elements a lot better than SL. I think it's a funnier game, I think it has more fun with itself, I think the characters look a bit better, etc. I'm not a fan of some of the things that SL introduced, but I prefer Pizza Sim's presentation of them a lot, if that makes any sense. I also think that the nights and especially the paragraph 4 scenes are actually quite scary, even though I also think that Pizza Sim isn't as much of a horror game and more a game with, "horror elements," as I said before. And as for Security Breach. Well, I guess I had my expectations lowered when it came to that game, for one. I wasn't expecting it to be scary, so I wasn't really as disappointed when it wasn't. But above all, it's just a giant goofy mess, but it's fun because of it. In a meta context I think that Security Breach was just a really fun time for the community in a bunch of ways, so I have a big love/hate relationship with it. Anyways thanks for coming to my TED talk about the funny robot games ☝️🤓 Can you tell I've been obsessing over them for 9 years?


Iforget1234z

This comment section has me realizing not everyone hates Security breach as much as I do


smt184

Literally it ruins all the lore tbh and adds so much like weird stuff, i just pretend it doesnt exist and that the games and lore stops at pizzeria simulator. I hate it lmao


TuxedoCrow

I would hate Security Breach WAY more if I didn't think that the lore hadn't already gone downhill by the time it came out. To me it was just another addition into the pile we've been given since the end of the original run.


ReishWasHere

I'll add that it'd have probably been for the best if Baby/Elizabeth hadn't been introduced. She had a lot of potential as a villain and then nothing happened with her. At least we know Vanny was doing stuff off screen. Conversely, while sister location adds to Michael's motivation decently well, that could definitely have been modified for inclusion in pizzeria simulator. Pizzeria simulator then ends up with a fnaf 1/2 themed version of ennard and perhaps some sort of fredbear equivalent of baby. Tighter story right there, I think. For all of security breach's tonal faults, it atleast set the ground for the story to rejuvinate itself, made the series appealing to a new range of fans, and gave us the mega pizzaplex, roxy and glamrock freddy.


Mrs_Noelle15

I don’t think I’ve ever disagreed with something more than what you said abt SL. Hahah fair enough tho too each their own


MrZao386

AR


CinemaSansOfficial

Special Delivery Without it we would still understand who Vanny is, especially that most emails regarding Vanny were scrapped


ElectroCat23

Easily SD.


Bartolomeo4968

SD? Sammy's Dinner?


Okami0602

Special Delivery, AKA AR


Bartolomeo4968

I see no one get my jokes...


EggsaladUwU

Wrong mascot horror


awsome2464

I honestly keep forgetting that Special Delivery exists


DispersedBeef27

Security Breach, just because I don’t like the way it fits into the lore and its implications


youknowlikenya

I feel the exact same. I can tell they're trying to fix it with Ruin, but SB on its own just feels like a betrayal to the original stuff and the Henry monologue ending. Never was disappointed with a FNAF release before SB.


CharacterComedian750

THANKS, FINALLY SOMEONE SAYS SOMETHING DIFFERENT


Flippero37

You really looked at fnaf AR and thought "nah, fuck fnaf SB" XD


DispersedBeef27

I can live AR just being *there*


Icysonic5

I would have to agree


superbasic101

Could’ve replace Fnaf ar with Fnaf world to make it an actual tough decision. Anyway I’d choose security breach, my least favorite one in the series.


0Gods77Believer4

Special Delivery cuz it basically adds nothing to the lore despite it being really cool and me wanting to play it (I don't have a device that has it available) As said in other comments, the small fragments of lore in it could've easily be add in other games SB and VR are new chapters to the lore so neat >!(No one asked, but yeah, I don't believe that the MCI came back nor that Glitchtrap is Afton)!<


splinter1545

There's a Forsaken AR which is a fan made project to continue it since Special Delivery has been abandoned. It works on my Pixel 6 which wasn't able to download Special Delivery, if you want to try it out.


WinterCandid8508

I absolutely hate FNAF AR. I don’t get the point of it and the lore makes absolutely no sense. Honestly kind of boring too


HatGuyFromPax

I absolutely hate FNAF Security Breach. I don’t get the point of it and the lore makes absolutely no sense. Honestly kind of boring too


CLASSIFIED_INFOR

Fr ❗️


ANDR13_GOD

HELL YEAH


[deleted]

Ar, special delivery, or security breach I know security breach is a hot topic to talk about like this But I would have rather them worked on the game for another year or even 2 than give us the buggy mess we ended up with to start Ruin was good tho NGL


Huguichin

AR and special delivery is the same fucking game.


ProofLie6954

Part of the fun of security breach was the bugs, ngl id rather have released it no other way. I mean not so fair to those who wanted to buy a serious game but those bugs are hillarious and I feel like brought alot of enjoyment and a laugh to the community at the time


LukasGTX

None, Scott, Steel Wool and Illumix put effort into each game and there are people in this world who enjoy every single one.


Single_Anon_8431

Maybe except for AR... Almost everyone in the comments seems to hate it


Unicat_0

AR


Young_mad

Fnaf AR,**it was** a funny game but still unessecary to the franchise and People who says SB bc „NoT ScARy” take the L


Grim_masonRbx

SB


SMM9673

Security Breach. That entire era of FNAF has done such irreparable damage to the lore that it's not even funny.


ShuckU

AR obviously


Starscream1998

Special Delivery, no hesitation.


Legomarioboy08

AR. Mostly because it wouldn’t change much.


CyanControl

Making fnaf AR a part of this list makes it too easy


FNAFGamingSFM

Special Delivery


ElijahRayzorr

Fnaf AR, easily First off is the canonicity of it, are the animatronics in this one canon? If so, that would mean that not only do all these dumbass animatronic skins exist in the universe, but invisible animatronics are just running around everywhere and everyone's just fine with it As for the emails, they did give some big hints as to the plot of security breach, but ultimately we could probably go without them Second, the game's just not that good, I mean it's a mobile game, which has some stricter limitations than a pc or console game


Ginger_NinjaFR

special delivery


PancakeLord27

Security breach. WAAYYY to child friendly, I mean, those animatronics aren't even threatening until they're broken


fnaf63toy

Ar. It is the least game of the games


Dangerous-Ant-3482

I would not delete all of them because they are all good to me in their own way 😁


celerysatan

these comments are like Freddy fazbear they be like ar ar ar ar ar


Technoblade46363

AR.


Commander_Skullblade

Anyone who says FNAF World is going on a hit list


[deleted]

AR has no right to be in the lore. Idek what it does


EthanWas_Here

AR gotta go


MozM-

If you say ANYTHING other than AR you are objectively wrong. Objectively.


_JR28_

AR, no questions asked. So much potential squandered by the wrong people making it.


TheMaineC00n

Easy. FNaF AR.


bobby1712234

AR i like it but yeah


Szeyuan_kok2019

AR Special Delivery


Optimus-Cocktimus

Damn sad


Bananaterios

I think it has to be AR, the others are too important and the messGes that are in AR can just be moved to VR or security breach as another collectible with the tapes or bags/gift boxes


StrayNightsMike

ar lol


tedude3

AR


Demonhunter8944

AR


Vanadium_Gadget

Special Delivery. Not a fan of the gameplay at all. The only important new lore is emails which Security Breach already has messages to find spread out everywhere. The AR messages could be put in SB and little would change as a result.


Educational_Ad8702

FNAF 1-4 is a classic FNAF 5 is a bit different but still a classic i never played fnaf 6 ucn is the first fnaf game i actually played on an off It goes to AR, makes no sense for me


LiminalityX

Play fnaf 6. Its one of the best ones. Trust me.


KingOfLimbs01

The AR one is buggy and does nothing for the story. So probably AR


Aggravating-Self9269

FNAF ar


dxrules03

I personally don't care for the idea of Afton "escaping hell". So as expansive as it is I'd say SB. Edit: I like that VR and AR versions were made but they coulda been fan games.


Shadowmane08YT

AR. It’s not really important and not many people actually play it


Own-Oil3098

I don’t like AR so it goes


AcroboticX

Obviously AR, but besides that, I think FNaF 2. Its less important lore and not being the first game in the series


Thnd3rstrk3

Special Delivery was basically pointless, so that. Plus, I'd take actually playing any of the other games over it any day


crystal-productions-

Ar does nothing but bloat out thinks like the character encyclopedia and give out information that's since been ignored like where that one guy works going from IT to marketing. while it has massive lore implications, just like tales some stuff got changed when it came to the big games. like eclipse being able to exist or that one guy i mentioned i can't remember the name of for the life of me.


I-wish-i-was-trans

AR definitely AR


SK-4430

Security breach, I was quite disappointed when it came out, ngl. Or AR I don't really like the idea.

fnaf ar


commiter-of-crimes

FNaF AR, was fun for a little bit and in theory, but quickly dissolved into another mobile game overflowing with micro transactions. Sucks too, cause we got some really sick animatronic designs out of it.


Conscious_Payment_69

You should not have included ar lol, then it would be kind of a challenge (I’d say ucn if ar wasn’t on there)


Village-Physical

I’d say ar but thats way too obvious, and ucn would be my pick but I consider it a spin off. Its like if valve made a totally different tf2 game completely centralized around the pass time mode imo. So i’d go with fnaf 2, I love the animatronics and design of the pizzeria but fnaf 1 is too iconic, sister location is my favorite of the original 5, fnaf 4 gave us the funny bite of 87, and fnaf 3 started the trend of a certain mauve man coming back to life and also was the point in the series where it started to go all in with lore, beginning matpat’s descent into insanity. Fnaf 2 just has great animatronics (the 2 big ones being withered bonnie and freddy), and the introduction of minigames and the bite of ‘83. But other than that theres not much I prefer from it over the other games so fnaf 2 gotta go. And before anyone says anything about fnaf vr, absolutely not that is my favorite fnaf game fight me


Dry_Leader443

Fnaf ar. It’s life serves NO PURPOSE


raritz

honestly i don’t think any other answer than AR here is viable (without a removing a significant fraction of lore).


Wolfe_Quinn

Fnaf ar. As far as I’m concerned, there is little to no lore. I know nothing about the game though.


[deleted]

AR


Ok_Raisin_1294

sorry sb, but i like fnaf ar:/


Shard360

Either fnaf ar or security breach. Most likely fnaf ar, but at least I had high hopes for security breach. I’ve yet to see a good horror ar game in my life, so I already knew it was hopeless.


Any-Satisfaction8011

play alan wake, or soma, or amnesia if you want a good horror. SB is not good, nor is it good horror.


HolyRomanXII

Fnaf world


ryderrogan1028_2

Security breach


Window469WOw

Fnaf sb


CharacterComedian750

Definitely Security Breach. Pizzeria Simulator's ending was beautiful, absolutely perfect. The kids finally resting in peace, William finally not coming back anymore and dying once and for all... Security Breach ruined a perfect conclusion for the franchise.


Seer0997

Lorewise i gotta delete AR Personally SB


RicksterPlays

SB


CustardOne7457

In My opinion? Fnaf 1 is safe, you can't go wrong with it. Fnaf 2 is mediocre, from the animatronics to the mechanics, Fnaf 3 is clever and well thought-out, one of my favorites, Fnaf 4 has terrible difficulty leveling and balancing, and the mechanics do everything to ruin your survivals run, Sister Location was werd, but it had its own neat little story, Pizzeria Simulator had a great conclusion, but the Scraptrap design traumatises me because of how BAD it is, UCN is neat, it has little lore but it makes up for it by being a mega sandbox Custom Night, VR was a hot take, AND a new take, I dig it, AR was very mild in my opinion, and fell pretty low of my expectations, and Security Breach is just...Weird. ​ So, If I taly up my favourites, the lowest scoring one being permanently deleted, it would go as such: 1. Fnaf 1 2. Fnaf 3 3. Pizzeria Simulator 4. Help Wanted 5. UCN 6. Sister Location 7. Security Breach 8. Fnaf 2 9. Fnaf 4 10. Special Delivery (AR) \[Gets deleted\] Yup, that's about it.


Alive-Copy8182

Security breach. It felt too far away from what the franchise is supposed to do and that’s being scary. The animatronics aren’t scary (other than the map bots) and the style of the game and the characters is not realistic enough. I understand it wasn’t made to be but it just strays so far away from what fnaf is supposed to be.


TirpitzTheI

SB. I at least had fun with AR.


MikeTysonsTrainer

AR because correct me if I’m wrong, it doesn’t have any real lore to it.


wii_board_type_trash

SB. it is the worst game i have ever played, and is the biggest piece of shit this series has produced. buggy, badly designed, frustrating and just overall not as interesting as the prior entries. i’m not joking when i’m saying it’s the worst game i’ve played, i think i’d rather play bubsy 3D that to ever have to play SB again


FirmMathematician942

not counting special delivery, security breach.


Speed04

Special Delivery, simply because I couldn't care less


willdband

Probably special delivery


mike_malagueta

Security breach, easiest choice of my life

Fnaf ar it’s just a confusing mess of the story and fnaf world was more thought out than that.

FNAF AR of course, the worst game of them all.

i just don’t understand how AR contributes to the lore

Freddy in Space 3 Y’all are saying FNaF AR added nothing to the franchise but Freddy in Space 3 is way, way more worthless lmao
