Ranking of Every Five Nights At Freddy's Game

All of the Five Nights at Freddy's video games were rated.

One of the most popular game series in the horror genre is Five Nights at Freddy's. What at first began as a lone independent game with a distinctive premise rapidly gave rise to a whole series, spinoffs, and even fan material. Although it could be difficult to maintain a series centered on a single straightforward gaming aspect without it becoming too repetitive, creator Scott Cawthon discovered a means to keep attracting viewers.

Even though there are several animatronics to interact with and face numerous horrific jump scares, every game has its highs and lows. They are all significant to the larger story, however, which unites all the games and keeps players coming back for more.

Help Wanted Recycles Previous Content

The first game in the series to add a distinctive element to this horror title is Help Wanted, which flips the traditional FNAF on its head and incorporates it into a VR experience. It has a limited amount of unique material, while being brand-new and sometimes much more horrifying to play.

FNAF 4 Over-Relies on Your Hearing

Due of its focus on sound, FNAF 4 could be among the most challenging to play in the whole series. This game takes place in a child's bedroom rather than the typical security office. If you want to live, you must constantly gaze between the two bedroom doors on each side of the room, the closet, and the bed.

The flaws in Security Breach hide their potential

Security Breach was the first game in the series to have an open environment. You explore the Pizzaplex as a young boy called Gregory while being assisted by Freddy to attempt to escape the other animatronics and discover its dark mysteries.

You Can Create A Restaurant In The Pizzeria Simulator, But It Will Cost You

Everyone questioned if Pizzeria Simulator, a free game in the series, was really simply another spin-off. As you go through the instructions on how to construct your own Freddy Fazbear's, the game initially doesn't even seem to be connected to the others.

You Only Need One Animatronic in FNAF 3 to Scare You

Freddy Fazbear's transforms into something of a legend in the world of the game after the first two games, culminating in FNAF 3's attempt to imitate the purported terror experience. On night one, everything seems to be OK, but by night two, your boss has located a genuine Fazbear animatronic to enhance the authentic horror experience, and he has no clue that it is still alive.

Removes The Openings For True Terror in FNAF 2

The simple act of taking down the office doors made FNAF 2 intriguing and much more horrifying, defying expectations for a sequel to the original FNAF. The animatronics were now so near that you could no longer hide behind closed doors.

Sister Location Delivers Additional Interactive Terror

Sister Location made the decision to shake things up for the series by introducing new animatronics and assigning you to work the night shift to fix them. You must squeeze through vents to reach each chamber while keeping an eye on the animatronics, but that's not the terrifying part.

FNAF 1 Wins Hands Down

Nothing compares to the original game, despite the pleasure of the following games. The original idea and the fact that you were almost immobile while the animatronics pursued you kept everyone interested, even though it didn't have the fan base that every other game has begun with and was essentially a project aiming to mimic the Chuck E. Cheese brand.

People still repeat and make references to FNAF 1, proving its influence has endured. Since its debut, it has been a mainstay of popular culture, and it is not expected to go away any time soon.
