Tanner Reviews Five Nights at Freddy’s 4

Fnaf_4_desktop_iconWell, I reviewed the other three games in this franchise. I might as well bring up the fourth and hopefully final installment of the Scott Cawthorn horror game, Five Nights at Freddy’s. I have made it no secret that I adore these games for being original, chilling, and building a good story using minimalistic storytelling devices. As a matter of fact, the first Five Nights at Freddy’s won my award for Best Video Game of 2014. So to say that I have praise for this franchise is nothing short of an understatement.

So when I heard that there was going to be a Five Nights at Freddy’s 4, a daring sequel to the supposed FNAF trilogy, I groaned. For a series that was so good up until this point, now we run the risk of over saturation of the market and the fact that the story is simply played out just about everything that it can do. The best step forward would be a prequel to expand the mythos and everyone knows what I feel about prequels (I hate them.) So when it was finally released, I have to say that it almost completely met expectations. While it did lead on the positive side, Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 feels more of a cash in than a definitive conclusion to a great series. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Five Nights at Freddy’s 4”

The Best and Worst Video Games of 2014

You know, at first I was not going to make a best and worst video games list of 2014. As I stated earlier in the year, the concept of buying/renting video games had become an expensive adventure and I wanted to focus more on movies instead of video games for my site. But then I realized as I was looking over all my reviews of 2014 that I did in fact have a good enough portion of video games that I reviewed to make a decent list out of them and said, oh hell why not?

Looking back at 2014 when it comes to video games is like going to a strip club on a Tuesday. Ugliness and desperation as far as the eye can see, all of which are hoping you too are desperate enough to give them money for what is by all accounts sub par entertainment. The vast majority of video games released by the big dogs have not necessarily been bad as they have been ‘mediocre’ and ‘safe’. Which is depressing when you realize that the industry needs a swift kick in the balls that none of the games are willing to do. But there have been a couple of gems to come out and today we are going to highlight the ones that rule the shit house roost and the few that were able to crawl out of the cesspool of filth that is the video game industry of 2014.

Tanner Reviews Five Nights at Freddy’s 2

Five_nights_at_freddy's_2_logoFor anyone who read my article a couple of weeks ago, one video game that has grabbed my attention by the balls and is refusing to relinquish its vice grip is Five Nights at Freddy’sI’m loved this game and am continuing to love this game. The twisted and innovative horror video game from the mind of Scott Cawthon has become a shining beacon of hope and prosperity in an otherwise bleak and dying world of survival horror video games. By creating simple mechanics, a wonderfully new setting, the inability to move or fight your captors, and unique and horrifying enemies; Five Nights at Freddy’s is easily one of the greatest survival horror games of all time. Easily in the Top Ten and I will fight anyone who has any sort of different opinion on this matter.

I got on board the Five Nights at Freddy’s pain train a little late to the party just playing the excellent game several weeks ago… And already I hear that we have ourselves a sequel to review and both are 2014 games! Oh goody! My best video games list may be nothing but me gushing over how amazing Scott Cawthon’s imagination is. Yeah… For anyone expecting that list you need to be ready for that because Five Nights at Freddy’s  2 is just as astonishing if not better than its predecessor, building more scares and increasing the challenge to untold heights.

Tanner Reviews Five Nights at Freddy’s

Five_nights_at_freddys_cover_artDamn it! Fucking damn it! This game! This fucking game! Jesus tap dancing Christ this game is fucking terrifying and for something so simplistic is executed masterfully. How in the hell did this game do it? I have no idea. You take a concept so simple and make it absolutely horrifying… I love it! I absolutely love it! I love every single second of it. Five Nights at Freddy’s needs to be taught in college classes on how to appropriately build suspense and to use jump scares as they are intended to be used. This game is an absolute modern marvel and one of the best damn games that I have played in recent years and I mean that with absolutely no hyperbole. Five Nights at Freddy’s is something that everyone should experience and you can for the low price of $4.99 on Steam!
