    3:03 hol up, is this actually a sneak peak for a conspiracy theory channel? that seems far fetched but matpat seems to be teasing us with it. notice how a fourth channel hasnt been added for some time. i know conspiracy theories are also way more complicated and can be harder to research especially with an unbiased opinion. i could bw and honestly think i am entirely wrong but im just putting it out there

    @The Game Theorists Alright! Matpat!! I got a question. I know this isn't Mario related, it is FNAF related but I still wanna ask. In the book "Into the Pit" It says 6 lie dead. Yet there is only 5 missing children. So who is the sixth? I have been searching for a while now with a friend, and we haven't found any answers. All we can find is Jeremy, Gabriel, Fritz, Susie, and Cassidy, which again is only 5. The only hypothesis we have is Charlie, but we know she died in the same year as Chris/Evan, and she died in a different area, there for it's a very far fetched hypothesis. Plus I have found it said the youngest was only 6, and Charlie was 3. Can you please help? If anyone else in interested in this topic, please spread this comment to Matpat so it can be disgust.

    There's a literal duel mini game in Mario Party 2. He may use Pop guns in the international release but in the original Japanese release he uses an actual gun (at least in the ending cutscene against Bowser). 🔫🔫

    10:11 If people can be replicated, then what if William was replicating himself? That’s why he always comes back, and maybe Michael is a copy gone rogue. Undoing all of his “father’s” wrongs. Just sayin’.

    idk if this is controversial or not beacause ive not kept up on fnaf but wouldent fnaf sisiter location be first in the timeline because alot of the games after have the name on his paycheck as mike or michael? of course fnaf 4 mightve been before but sl would be after because hes an adult. also in some of the games he gets fired for odor which would be explained by him being decayed in the Sister location cutscene. well thats just a little theory of mine. dont hate me :)

    There's a shooting minigame in the 2020 Sonic Olympic Games app, and the fact that Sonic was falling while giving a precise shot is more impressive. Not to mention he actually shoots a gun, while Mario has more practice with an arm canon

    You know right now with Pokémon sword and shield the whole rare candy thing doesn’t really click with Pokémon sword and shield since when you beat the game and you go to the battle tower there is someone who sells rare candies and ditto can be found in the wild area so I don’t know where Pokémon sword and shield fix within this timeline so can do an update adding Pokémon sword and shield?
