About This Game

Welcome to your new summer job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where kids and parents alike come for entertainment and food as far as the eye can see! The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear, of course; and his two friends. They are animatronic robots, programmed to please the crowds! The robots' behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night however, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman.

From your small office you must watch the security cameras carefully. You have a very limited amount of electricity that you're allowed to use per night (corporate budget cuts, you know). That means when you run out of power for the night- no more security doors and no more lights! If something isn't right- namely if Freddybear or his friends aren't in their proper places, you must find them on the monitors and protect yourself if needed!

Can you survive five nights at Freddy's?

"For all the simplicity of the game’s controls and premise, Five Nights at Freddy‘s is frightening. It’s a fantastic example of how cleverness in design and subtlety can be used to make an experience terrifying. Simple still images and proper character design steal the show in this game, and show that Scott Cawthon knows quite a lot about the secret fears people feel when looking at creepy dolls and toys. It’s elegant in how it sows fear, and is a must-own for anyone who likes scary games." -Joel Couture IndieGameMag.com

REVIEW
It is unfortunate that I even need to say this, but: I am not interested, whatsoever, in becoming involved in the politics and lobbying of opinions that revolve around this game. I am just going to describe my experience with it and my opinion about it, and offer a suggestion of consideration to anyone who is interested.

So I stumbled across Five Nights at Freddy's in my backlog, and I will admit that there was an influence of brand recognition due to the circus that surrounds the game. Perhaps without which, I would still have yet to even try it. Regardless, I was curious about it so I checked it out and played it for a few hours one night.

It was a fun evening. The game isn’t some insanely life-changing experience, but it is entertaining and has a nice novelty about it. I hadn’t played anything quite like it. You can surely have a fun few hours playing it; I know I did.

It is extremely and purposefully simple, and there are very little controls or mechanics. This minimalist approach to the gameplay creates a scenario which allows the game to evoke a strong sense of helplessness and anxiety in the player. You really can’t do much, but that is the point. And even with the opening disclaimer about jump-scares, I got “got” a good 2-3 times by them as I played that night. I liked it.

Overall, there isn’t much to it. The game is short, the graphics are ugly, the mechanics are minimal, etc. Five Nights at Freddy's isn’t anything overtly special, but it also isn’t excessively terrible… it just is what it is. It’s like horror movies; they usually aren’t anyone’s all-time favorite, but they can be fun for a night.

So if we can put aside the trolling that surrounds this game for a moment, and speak logically: you will likely find Five Nights at Freddy's is an entertaining experience that will definitely appeal to horror buffs and casual gamers, but can also easily be enjoyed by a wide range of gamers. That said, if you are one of those people who believes only the most top-shelf, A-one, premium games “deserve” to be played, you should probably just stay clear. For everyone else: don’t expect the second coming of Jesus Christ, but also don’t expect some unbearably awful experience… just expect a few hours of cheap thrills and then to move on with your life. If that sounds cool with you, then consider checking this out.

The only thing scary about this game is the horrid fanbase of 7 year olds that are sexually aroused by animatronic chickens and foxes. Do yourself a favor and stay as far away as you can from this game.
