Five Nights At Freddy’s arcade game is one of the most popular online games nowadays. It has been downloaded by many people around the world and is ranked as the fourth best selling PC game today. So if you have not yet played it, you are definitely missing out on something really fun.
Five Nights at Freddy’s was originally a game released in Japan called Graduation Party. It is a remake/portmanteau of the popular arcade game released in 1990 called Psychosomatic. Scott Cawthon later developed the popular series that we know today as Five Nights at Freddy’s. Five Nights at Freddy’s was later developed into its current name when the first game was released for the PlayStation 2.
The game involves a boy who must survive night after night in a Freddy trap, and is played in third person perspective. The boy is required to save his friends from various traps set by Freddy Krueger, played by the iconic Wes Craven himself. The game was later portmanteau’d into the franchise known as A Nightmare on Elm Street. This franchise developed into a movie of the same name, and starred Michael Myers, who played the original Freddy in the movie. It was later released as a TV series, later becoming a franchise for the feature film, as well as an animated film titled A Nightmare On Elm Street.
Scott Cawthon later revealed that the inspiration behind the original five nights at freddy’s games was actually derived from a dream that he had while he was a child. After having a nightmare that his grandmother would die in a fire, he had a flash of an older version of her in the subconscious. He used this image to inspire the creation of the game, and when he later got to work on the game, he knew that he wanted to create a fan game based on the image, but with an update to fit his needs.
The Five Nights At Freddy’s game has been widely successful, receiving multiple awards including the Game Of The Year award at both E3 Expo Europe in June of 2021 and its Best Buy award at the Game Awards ceremony in June of 2021. Furthermore, the game received several additional updates and is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. However, the PC game does not have the same graphic fidelity as the other versions, and lacks facial features which has made it less attractive to a mainstream audience. However, improvements have been made to the PC version, and it is hoped that the game will appeal to a wider audience once it becomes available on other platforms.
A major difference between the original and the remake is the level of detail shown in the game. The original version was quite small, containing only one room with mostly just open walls, which were hard to see. However, the Five Nights At Freddy’s games are large, taking up a lot more space. In fact, the PC game can take up twice as much space on your desktop as the Xbox One or PlayStation 4, and it also takes up twice as much space on your television. This is because the games use a better rendering process, and therefore look better on a wide range of consoles and televisions.
