Five Nights at Freddy’s

We can’t have a list of jump scare games without including the iconic Five Nights at Freddy’s series. If you’ve been living under a rock and have no idea what FNAF is, it’s an indie game made by Scott Cawthon where you have to survive several nights in a pizzeria. The catch? The animatronics at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza come alive at night and have a deep, twisted desire to stuff humans into their mechanical suits.

To keep these creepy critters at bay, you need to carefully manage your resources. Check your cameras, turn the hallway light off and on, shut the door if you see anything standing a little too close for comfort, and repeat until morning arrives. Mistakes result in some absolutely terrifying “Game Over” moments with characters like Chica rushing towards your face with a loud shriek. RIP headphone users.

Overall, the scares in FNAF are ones you never quite get used to and will have you saying, “Nope. No thank you. I’m done.” Whether it fills you with fear or frustration, FNAF is a game that’s hard to beat.
