We all know about Chuck E. Cheese’s or at least places like that (Goofy Goobers in Spongebob).  Freddy’s is a tad different.

This may be one of the most difficult strategy/survival horror games out there. Sure, any chump can make it to Night 3 or 4, but Night 5 is basically impossible…and did I mention there’s a Night 6 and 7? My friend, who is somewhat of a horror game connoisseur, cannot pass Night 5, so I guess he’s not as good as he used to be. That’s what this game does to players though.

My only advice is to have a pillow nearby to shield your eyes or to hug at times.

It's only fitting to have five features for this game, and I promise I didn't put any jump scares in this.

P.S. Beware of Chica the duck.

#5 Science Fiction

It seems like such a simple concept, and yet it works wonders. Animatronics are coming to life to kill you. Now the idea itself may not be new, but it sure has it’s own brand of execution.

 I’d be shocked if someone told me they hadn’t had a nightmare about this. If not, then play Five Nights at Freddy’s and try to go to sleep. I’m scaring myself just thinking about it. Anyways, watch out for the eyes, listen to the laughs, and if you run out of power on any night - just start crying early.

There’s just something about Freddy…

#4 Immersion

I cannot believe I was not scared of this game when I first started, but that’s what happens when you feel cocky only after surviving Night 1. At least after Night 1, you will be so jumpy the entire time that anything will scare you. I definitely feel afraid while writing this, that’s for sure.

So, turn the lights off and get your PC on because you’ll be in for a night of terror and wet trousers. The darkness makes any horror game worse. Therefore, turn the lights off and jump in because suddenly a creepy bunny named Bonne will be at the door and you’ll need to restart. If you conquer you’re fears, Night 5 may be on the horizon.

#3 Interact

You are the head of security as far as I’m concerned in this game so you will oversee all the shenanigans that occur at night at Freddy’s. The game is technically simple control wise. All you need to do is watch the camera and all the rooms, occasionally click the lights of the left and right doors in your security room, and occasionally shut the doors. Though, nothing is ever that easy.

nothing is ever that easy.

 There is power that must be saved so that you can’t just keep the doors shut the whole time. Man, I’m already shivering just thinking about it. Each night the difficulty rises and the animals move quicker and start twitching randomly. Clicking the light only to see the faces of these animatronics is on another level of scary in and of itself. Surprisingly, what scares me the most is when you keep opening and closing the camera because every time you do it – there could be a frightening face and scream awaiting you on the other side.

#2 Check Point Saves

You won’t believe how important to your health (actual, not in-game) check point saves become when playing this game. The game starts on Night 1 and you think, “Oh, this isn’t difficult at all,” only to discover that Night 2 is on a whole other level and you couldn’t imagine doing Night 1 all over again just to get to another death in Night 2. 

Continuing from right where you left off is what motivates the player to cause himself/herself more stress and anxiety.

Continuing from right where you left off is what motivates the player to cause himself/herself more stress and anxiety. Exactly what you want when playing a horror game am I right? As you progress past each night, it becomes more and more difficult for you to survive, so starting on the night you just made it to by a hair is extremely helpful. If this is your first dabble at a strategy horror game, then you’re going to need this.

#1 Five Nights at Freddy's Feature:
Survival Horror

The game’s best attribute is the survival horror factor because without it, this would just be a game for 5 year olds. Five Nights at Freddy’s will take you much longer than five nights to complete, especially with the two additional nights added on. The creator just wanted to toy with us by making extra nights. “I BEAT NIGHT 5 YEAAAAH...wait, why is it still going…”

To sum up the horrors of this game, here is a list: the faces, the smiles, the camera, the lights, the screams, and the disappearances.

Nothing is worse than seeing that the bunny (Bonne) and the duck (Chica) are completely gone and you just can’t find them. It’s just a fantastic feeling to be so hopeless and so alone isn't it?

Well, get out there and make me proud by falling out of your chair in utter terror.

I can already hear the Freddy jingle of horror…oh, and don’t forget the laugh too.
