     Horror games are the type of games that want to get a good scare out of the player many enjoy it. There was a game series that tons of people were playing a few years ago and some still play for nostalgia. The series was called: Five Nights at Freddy’s.

     Five Nights at Freddy’s is a survival horror game where the player has to survive five nights in your office from 12 AM to 6 AM while staying away from the animatronics: Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, and Foxy the Pirate Fox. If the player dies, it’s game over.

     In Five Nights at Freddy’s 1, the player is a night guard working at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza and the player is just sitting in the office, watching the cameras, making sure nothing goes wrong in the pizzeria. But, the player isn’t alone, the animatronics will become active they will try and kill the player. They will become more active as the player progresses through the game. To avoid them, shut the doors to make them go away, but make sure the player doesn’t have them closed all night, because it will drain the power and the power will go out and Freddy will kill the player. Using the cameras will also drain the power.

     Conserving power is one of the main obstacles, along with the animatronics trying to stuff the player into an empty suit. Once the clock strikes 6 AM the night is over and the player is safe for the day. As the player progresses further and further into the game, the difficulty ramps up. I feel that FNAF 1 is still a great game, including the series. It holds a very special place in my heart. If I wasn’t into this series I wouldn’t be able to do the things I do today.
