From the developer responsible for more fan service than the makers of anime body pillows comes the game that claims to be the final chapter in the series, which we all know is total bullsh*t!
Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter
Prepare yourself for the sequel, that's a prequel to a prequel, featuring the exact same poorly explained trial and error keep away from the furry gameplay as before, only this time... You. Can. Moooove. Sorta. Like three feet. It's really more of a wobble? Experience the same lack of innovation you've come to expect from the franchise. As you play a game that's basically identical to the first one, with the expect same fur suits that you remember -- now with five sharks worth of extra teeth.
After three games in more or less the same setting, get rid of the one thing that made this franchise unique, and try to survive in a normal suburban bedroom, with the same amount of arbitrary restrictions as Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria, like a time limit, doors than won't stay closed, a fox that kills you unless you watch it, a story that never ends in five nights, cryptic Atari-style cutscenes, and not even death will give you sweet release of not having to play Five Nights at Freddy's anymore.
Get ready for another vague entry in the already convoluted canon as the millions of fans who only play for the story, are starting to catch on these games just kinda waiting it, unless everything's hidden behind a bunch of bullshit secrets again. Ooooh, it was all a dream! Prepare for the ending design to cause more forum arguments about what's in the box than Pulp Fiction... or Seven.
David Mills: "What's in the box?!"
William Someset: "Not until you give me the gun."
David Mills: "What's in the f*cking box?!"
And end up with the total lack of answers, until he farts out some DLC two months from now, or another sequel, or a movie? [Jump scare] Oh, come on!
So strap on your Beats by Dre, point a webcam at your stupid face, and crank up the volume to pick up the incredibly quiet sound effects, then have an eardrums bone at your asshole by the series' loudest jumpscares yet. [Montage of jump scares] SHUT UP!
Starring: Edgy Big Bird [Nightmare Chica]; Thugs Bunny [Nightmare Bonnie)]; Freddy and The Jumpscares [Nightmare Freddy and His Miniatures]; Super Saiyan Freddy [Nightmare Fredbear]; Bargain Bin Sly Cooper [Nightmare Foxy]; and Your Growing Feeling of Buyers Remorse.

Eli Hodapp of Touch Authority noted that the Five Nights at Freddy's fandom "is so obsessed with FNAF, anything vaguely negative causes quite a stir. Needless to say, the reaction to this “honest trailer" for Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 ($2.99) has been pretty predictably negative. It reflects a lot of the criticisms commenters around here have had about the game series, in an amusing honest trailer way.

He also wrote "Regardless if you’re a fan of the series or not, Honest Trailers do make some entertaining videos, you have to give them that."
