Five Nights at Freddy’s
When Five Nights at Freddy’s was released back in 2014, no one could have foreseen the popularity it would amass. In fact, the game’s creator, Scott Cawthon, had never developed a horror game before and much of the idea for FNaF stemmed from negative reviews of his previous game, wherein many characters were said to look like “a scary animatronic animal.”
In Five Nights at Freddy’s, the player takes control of a night security guard at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, a fictional entertainment restaurant very similar to places like Chuck E Cheese. The player must attempt to survive each night by keeping a close watch on security cameras and using the building’s limited power to close doors in an effort to keep out the malfunctioning animatronics.
