Five Nights at Freddy’s is what you get when you combine a psychological horror game with Chuck E. Cheese – horror done right. Five Nights at Freddy’s manages to frighten you without all the gore and violence of other games in the horror genre.
The game puts you in the role of night watchman Mike Schmidt in a small office and your job is to listen and look out for the animatronic robots with limited powered security cameras. Even though most survival-horror games will give you a weapon to help you survive, or at least a place to run and hide in FNaF all you’ll have is your office, the cameras and your ears. There’s no background music so every sound you hear means that the Animatronics are getting closer to you.
Unlike most horror games FNaF doesn’t resort to cheap jump-scares to frighten you. In FNaF the tension just builds up and never decreases as you constantly watch for death-hungry robots through security cameras and your doors.
If you get paranoid easily, avoid this game and just stick with our Five Nights at Freddy’s t-shirts. This game had me on the edge of my seat and I can’t even get past night 2. I played it out of curiosity even though I’m not a big fan of horror games (except Dead Space – I loved it!). Five Nights at Freddy’s is a little black diamond of a horror game with an original concept to reboot a little the horror genre. And if you’re a big fan I’ve gathered 20 of the best Five Nights at Freddy’s t-shirts that I could find. Check them out!
