Top Ten Worst Things About Five Nights at Freddy's


The Top Ten

1 Repetitive

All the "nights" are the same only slightly harder. - Money1208

Almost everything bout this game is repetitive. Boring! - Powerfulgirl10

Sister Location is the opposite of repetitive -_- - DragonFire1o

Oh great,a troll,and no it not repetitive,pizzarea isn't repetitive,animtronics not repetitive,minigames not repetitive,jumpscares not repetitive,story not repetitive - Nateawesomeness

2 Overrated

It's debatable whether the games are actually overrated, there's a lot of detractors outside the fandom and critics have given the games decent to okay scores... but ultimately I consider this franchise to be utter crap that only exists for money and popularity at this point and I can see why people call it overrated.

It's a shame that Scott is STILL making games when he could be doing something else like continuing/concluding The Desolate Room as a trilogy or working on a new game entirely (and not reveal it to be yet another sh---- FNaF one. - KennyRulz244444

I mean overrated - Nateawesomeness

It is ridiculously overrated. - Powerfulgirl10

Fnaf has literally ruined Steam. - GasMaskChaplain

3 Has an Annoying Fanbase

They've thankfully died down and there are obviously true fans who know that this franchise isn't a flawless masterpiece and make great content, but bats--- insane fanbrats still exist in the minority and back in the day they were everywhere, I used to be one of them. - KennyRulz244444

Ok this is the only thing I agree with we are all legit cancer

Gay and 1000% cancer

Gay and cancer are not good words don’t say those words or I will cut your head off and mount it on my wall and plus cancer is a Hitler word

4 Not Scary

This game does NOT define horror, there's nothing remotely scary about FNaF, the whole franchise relies on jumpscares, has cute-looking graphics that don't make the game any more scary and turned a once-disturbing backstory into a mish-mash of crappy theories while making everything fantastical and sappy.

FNaF1 is the only game that got anywhere close to being creepy, it ultimately failed but at least it tried. The rest don't even bother, and that's a shame. - KennyRulz244444

Even the jump scares are lame

I think this game is not at all scary and the scary and violent thing is only the back story - MLPFan

Little debatable, not horrifying, but I did get a panic attack from the pitch of the scream when I actually played it, I don't play it anymore though.

5 Overpriced

Unless it was like 50$ saying the worst thing about this 5$, let me rephrase that: FIVE DOLLAR, game on steam is like complaining about an ice cream sundae just because it isn't sprinkled with 20 dollar bills or something.

5 Dollars for a point and click game with spoilers every where on YouTube is overpriced if you ask me. - GasMaskChaplain

Um... Its not over priced. The first game is 5$ ON STEAM! And if I'm right the other two games are 8$ ON STEAM!

All games are cheap it's a small game like 1 dollar

6 Cheap Jumpscares

Dem jumpscares be cheap bro

The jumpscares are really cheesy, especially in the first two games. - Powerfulgirl10

Well their better then a million jumpscares you can try to pull - Nateawesomeness

I had a heart attack.

7 No Replay Value

The only thing scary about it is when you first play and you get the first jumps are. When you play it again it's boring.

This sums up the games as a whole, you've played them once and after that there's no good excuse to play them again. - KennyRulz244444

8 It Brainwashes its Fans

Have to disagree with this. I hate FNaF and the toxic side of its fanbase but this is ridiculous. - KennyRulz244444

And that was the moment when I realized that the haters are worse than the fanbase.


9 Tries Too Hard be a franchise.

It's an indie horror game, it isn't Mario or Sonic, it's just a indie horror game that shouldn't warrant seven or more games.

It feels more like the Saw franchise than an actual good video game franchise, every game after the third has been crap or shouldn't have been a FNaF game at all. - KennyRulz244444

If you like try to hard you get so Aggravated you just want to throw you computer or I pad out the window

Scott is trying way too hard to make a game. - Powerfulgirl10

Nope,but you try to hard to make good reasons for this list,and because u do try to hard,it's not good reasons - Nateawesomeness

10 Thinks It's Scary

I didn't get the second game (which is what I'm starting with) until I was 12 because my mom thought it was too scary! Wow.

I haven't actually played the game cause my parents won't let me. Arggghghghghh!

Really, the jumpscares suck

My parents don't care so I play fnaf it's a little scary I'm 9 but I like fnaf m8s

The Contenders

11 They Are Supposed to Have 6 Games

Correction: Three. No more than that. - KennyRulz244444

Well four is enough,I actually wish their was 3,if their was six their would be a problem - Nateawesomeness

It doesn't need so many games. They're repetitive and boring. - Powerfulgirl10

3 Games were enough

12 It Focuses On Jump Scares Alone
13 The Animatronics Get Old Really Fast
14 It Destroyed YouTube

The game's literally EVERYWHERE! - Powerfulgirl10

Just look at Yaminash, Venturiantale, Markiplier, LITERALLY ALMOST EVERY OTHER CHANNEL.

15 Stupid Fanart

People always make porn and fetishes of the characters. Gross! - Powerfulgirl10

16 Power Drains Quickly

Only complaint I have about FNAF, in Night 7 20/20/20/20, it is difficult to avoid running out of power without someone killing you, luckily, I passed it, an this only applies to FNAF 1.

Sorry,your fault if you run out of power,not fnafs - Nateawesomeness

17 Unoriginal
18 If People See Anything Named Freddy, They Get Scared

I get freddy krueger but the rest are stupid - TeamRocket747

If a boy's name is Freddy or a girl's is Bonnie, everybody runs away screaming from them. It happened to a new girl, Bonnie, and she was crying. She's just a little girl, not a stupid robot!

I don't I went to Harry Bear's and I compared the mascot with Freddy Fazbear and THEY LOOK THE SAME

19 Wind Up Box

Yeah. I hate winding that damn music box.

Too hard to flash light at animatronic while winding up box

It's so hard to focus on the box and the animatronics on Night 6. Confusing. - Powerfulgirl10

Seriously...the wind up box is annoying

20 Shippers

Sorry but I don't really any of girls like there's Chica and toy Chica (I don't count mangle) so really I'm sorry if you don't like this but I'd rather ship the guys there's like millions of guys and 2 girl (like I said I don't count mangle) sorry if you don't like guys and guy :( ):

I REALLY hate shippers. ", Chica and Foxy belong together! " They're kids stuffed into a robot suit. It's like shipping little kids!

I only somewhat ship Foxy and Chica. Nobody else. And yes, shipping children together is disturbing. - Powerfulgirl10

Ships Are So Annoying! People Ship Characters Like Bonnie x Toy Bonnie. People Need To Focus On The Game, Not Shipping Characters!

22 Seeing Things In Shadows

Crashed mu game =(

Anyone else see Shadow Bonnie in the shadows? Or Springtrap whenever you close your eyes? After you do it for a long time, yeah sure the jumpscares are not scary, but it still prints those images in your mind that are impossible to get rid of.

The first time I watched a five nights at freddy video,
I had hallucinations

23 It Ruined Yamimash's Youtube Channel

What's the problem? ,yamimash likes fnaf.if he play it it's no problem.

24 The Third Game Is a Complete Copy and Paste
25 The Plot Is Filled With Plot Holes

Many plot holes indeed. - Powerfulgirl10

26 Chica's Magic Rainbow (FNAF World)

Jimmy Neutron's actress played the magic rainbow - TeamRocket747

27 Is Based Off a Disney Film

How is it based off of a Disney film, and what is it based off of? - Powerfulgirl10

Which film is it based off of? - michaelsback

Can someone explain to me how this is based of a Disney film, I've seen TONS of Disney movies and none of them come to mind when someone says: "Five Nights At Freddys"

Based off of I think The Muppets

28 Rip-off of Chuck-E-Cheese

It's inspired - TeamRocket747

Freddy fazbears pizza isn't a rip off of chuky cheeses

29 The Annoying Balloon Boy

You can't make him leave! - Powerfulgirl10

All he dose is laugh at you and it sets up foxy to kill you and the game would be so much easier without balloon boy or jj because jj just stares at you one creepy balloon boy is enough I would rather have ronled McDonald with a butcher nice than balloon boy and Jj

Should be on the list as 1 because every one do not like him! HE KILLS ME WITH ANIMATRONIC HELP! HAPPY HE IS NOT IN FNAF 1

30 Toy Bonnie Toy Bonnie Toy Bonnie is one of the newer animatronics and one of the antagonists in Five Nights at Freddy's 2. He is Bonnie's "redesigned" counterpart from the past who replaced Bonnie's own pre-rebuilt incarnation Withered Bonnie for improvement.
31 Balloon Boy (Character) Balloon Boy (Character)

He has no jumpscares. He just laughs, saying "hello" or "hi" which is so awfully annoying.

32 Foxy Foxy Foxy is one of four main antagonists of Five Nights at Freddy's, who later appear as variations in the succeeding games.

Foxy is pooo0oop he is so anoying.

33 The Game Itself Is About Waiting
34 The First 4 Games are Extremely Repetitive
35 The Puppet Dude

I hate him
