How would you all rank the games we've seen so far? (If more games come out after this, you can update your rankings).
6. FNaF World: I know it's kind of unfair to compare an RPG to five horror games, but I'm putting it here anyway. FNaF World is an incomprehensible mess of flashing lights, colors, and unexplained game mechanics. Combine all of that with a lack of immersion thanks to the boring story and characters, and you've got yourself a rushed pile of crap.
Anyways, from here on out, we have horror games.
5. Five Nights at Freddy's 3: Granted that it is a guilty pleasure of mine to play this game every now and then, it's still a rushed crapfest. This is probably the most unpopular out of the five horror games, and I can't blame them. The game does a really terrible job at telling you what you are supposed to be doing and it is really difficult. It is difficult because winning is mainly based on luck. If Phantom Foxy gets in the room or if Springtrap is outside your door, you can't do anything and you have to face the music, making this game really unfair towards the player. At least the backstory revelations (which were hidden way too deep) and main antagonist were cool.
4. Five Nights at Freddy's 2: I will never understand why this game is one of the fan favorites. I think it is the most overrated game out of the five horror games. This was the only game out of the five that didn't give you time to soak into the atmosphere (which was not scary at all) and you immediately just hit the ground running. This game didn't share the less-is-more approach that 1, 3, 4, and SL did. There were way too many characters, the game felt repetitive, and it got really stressful and infuriating, something I consider a sin when developing a horror game. Like FNaF 3, this game is also a serious lore throwaway and you don't really care about the game more than the story.
3. Five Nights at Freddy's 4: While this game felt slightly rushed, I still got really spooked with this one and the ambiance was spot on. I liked the perspective of being a young boy in his bedroom rather than being in a security control room. Having to stand next to your bedroom door knowing that something is potentially there and having to listen out for breath will really spook you out, and the jumpscares never seem to get old with this one. The animation and sound quality is also really good here and the DLC is also very fun. I recommend checking it out, but the game still has a few issues like a lack of directions when facing against Fredbear.
2. Five Nights at Freddy's Sister Location: The latest installment has a lot to offer. In this game, we have different environments, stellar voice acting and characters, and an actual plot. In the other four games, people just liked characters for little things like jumpscares, but here, you can actually note personalities and quirks. Circus Baby in particular is a great character. The game was also the most interactive to players and it still forced you to keep the volume up. I liked that the game was fresh from beginning to end. Also, Custom Night is really cool.
1. Five Nights at Freddy's: The classic game will always stand strong because it is the original. It's simple approach and memorable artstyle make this game one of the best. This was the one game where you didn't have to worry about the lore and you could just enjoy it for what it was. I'm not going to lie when I say that this game scared the crap out of me because I always hated those creepy robots at Chuck E Cheese as a child, so seeing a horror game revolving around them really got me spooked.
That's my ranking anyway. Feel free to agree or disagree down below. What are your rankings?
