Why should I Play it? Did I Miss Something ?

If you have done little research you’ll get the know the game was first very popular at DESURA which is Digital distribution service of games. After making it name at DESURA the game made it appearance on the Steam Store through the votes held on Steam Greenlight. The game after making it way to steam became the most popular game and torn the Steam charts on PC. And after a few months Five Nights at Freddy’s 2 made it way to steam and after few more months Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 arrived at steam. Wasn’t that fast three games in just one year with thousands of wild fans and it didn’t just stopped there. Five Nights at Freddy 4 also came out earlier this year in July the game meta described it as the last chapter but who knows in future we might come across other sequels of the game.

Despite all the facts one thing to notice the Five Night series are short independent games which you can even finish in just a couple of hours. Its also one of the main reason that it don’t take as long time to develop which other take on Steam. But still the way in which it is made the story and they way it has been directed is undeniably made the game a master piece. And it has a huge circle of fans on from social media , gaming blogs and YouTube where you will find all sort of the videos of the game. The incredible videos of the shouts and screams of the one playing it. To be honest they are better than all the videos present on YouTube, the reactions are just priceless.

Questions that will pop up in your Mind, what makes it so Special to be played ?

Okay Great all the facts make me wanna play this Game but WAIT  why will the Restaurant need a Security Guard at Night?

This question will pop in many minds. Why would a restaurant like that would need a security guard at night. Well if you have read the meta description of the game you’ll get to know that for some specific reasons the Freddy and his animated robo friends have started behaving strange at night. And hiring a security guard is cheaper than hiring a repairman. So now you know but you should know more. Freddy and his robo friends aren’t going to sleep at night instead they will be awake all the time to assist you. Not funny Right? According to the employees the animatronics need to kept ON in order to work properly so Yeah the when you’ll be busy watching them over the camera at the same time they will roam around the restaurants and once they gone missing you need to find them.

Okay I gotta Admit that is Strange but still ain’t convincing me Why is it so Scary?

Well if this question pops in your head, I would have said a great question but actually its not. Just for a moment think of yourself locked in a place at night surrounded by animal robots who move and roam from one place to another in the dark and with the course of time one of them go missing. Goose-Bumps Where did he go? Did he stopped working? Or something else wrong? Well its up to you to find it out.

  This is your office in the game

Yeah that Seems Legit Okay What about the Gameplay Do YOU expect me to fall from Chair while Playing?

Here is a little glimpse about your office, this is where you’re going to sit and will keep eyes on the thing by monitoring them through cameras and Do we expect you to fall from chair? We are not very certain about your falling but yeah the game is mostly based on jump scares. As mentioned the animatronics roam here and there in the restaurant they will eventually sometime going to have a sneak peek on you. According to the game they are alive and watching you, they think you should be animatronic too but you’re not. So this is what don’t let them rest and they will try to get their hands on you and can appear from any side. If they get their hands on you they will stuff you into an empty animatronic suit. And if they succeed in doing that, you’re a dead man means Gamer Over for you.

Pretty strange right? And yeah as mentioned the game is based mostly on jump scares and not just ordinary jump scares, its the jump scares of one of the most scariest games of the year. But you should know one thing the jump scares only happens if you don’t play the game it is meant to be played, means you’re playing it wrong. If you can really understand the game you can end the game without experiencing a single jump scare. But that’s not going to happen because the average experience of everyone at Five Nights at Freddy’s is they get jump scares and die many times before they can complete the game.

Five Nights at Freddy’s about the Gameplay

Now you know much about the game now lets jump to the gameplay. What will your gameplay experience at Five Nights at Freddy’s.

alt="Five Nights at Freddy's"

As you’re the night guard duty most of the time you’ll be looking at a screen like this, its a monitor screen. On the bottom right you can see all those rectangles, these are actually the cameras. You can click on any of them to monitor the rooms in which they are installed. On top right you can see the time and the which night it is. And on left bottom you can monitor how much power you’re left with and what’s your usage.

The game might seems boring at the start when nothing is happening but wait because things are going to get weirder as the night passes. As the night passes you’ll start noticing things, you’ll hear voices, things will move from its place and this feeling makes you panic and gives you chill as if you’re really present there watching out for things. As the animatronics are roaming at night, sometime they will be missing and when you change cameras they end up in a room where they are not supposed to go. Sometimes switching between cameras you’ll come across them all of sudden and might get even scared by them because the way they look it seems as if they’re looking straight at you.

Time will come when you get to know that the animatronics are getting close to your office and they might even get it. So you’ll have to close the door near you in order to keep them out but wait those aren’t just ordinary doors they’re controlled by electricity. And using it would increase the power usage and aside from this you also have flashlight and cameras which help you keep tracking of the animatronics. Using too much of them would increase the power usage and if you run out of power you’re left vulnerable. All these things when combined makes the game an interesting one where you can’t be play to defensively but in order to live you need to be defensive.

[Snizza] EyesofWrath : Recommended

“Genius in it’s simplicity.

I finally bought this on sale just to see what the fuss was about, and after all the talk of the series being Youtube-bait with its jump-scares and the tiny development cycles of the sequels leading to them seemingly being churned out I was very cynical when starting it.

But I’ll be damned if this isn’t one of the most palpably tense horror games I’ve ever played.

Whilst the jump-scare aspect gets the most press when it comes FNAF, the game actually uses the core tenants of true horror to it’s advantage. The player’s influence on the world around him is limited – the only way you can fend off the creatures is to track the threat and close the doors around you when they appear. Given that operating anything uses up your precious power resources, you’re left exposed for most of the game and can only act in your own defence when the threat is at your doorstep. Furthermore, you can only know that the threat is there if you turn on the lights temporarily, and the knowledge that there may be something watching you from the black abyss that lies just outside the door is terrifying in itself. So throughout the game the player is left powerless, exposed, fearing the unknown, feeling like the enemy is one step ahead, and incapable of eliminating the threat, only delaying it. These are the emotions that truly thrill you and scare you. The jump-scare is merely the pay off to the complex and deep tension that the game creates. And it does all this on a shoe-string, exposing just what a solid and simple concept can do for the gamer.

I now get why this game became so popular, and while the things you see and hear on Youtube may make you feel like the game is nothing more than a cheap thrill, I think it’s a deceptively simple but masterfully crafted experience.”
