Have you ever played a Five Nights at Freddy’s game?

One two Freddy’s coming for you

Five Nights at Freddy’s really falls into that “single developer” category that’s been so prevalent in the 2010s.

Scott Cawthon is responsible for a multi-million-dollar empire, alongside of recent solo studio names like Matt Thorson, Toby Fox and Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone. It really is amazing when you think about it, but a recent string of Switch eShop releases got me thinking: how much of the general public plays Five Nights?

Me? I like to dabble in a bit of everything. Some of it’s for research, and the rest I just have no excuse: I love games of all shapes and sizes. Also, I have young cousins and neighbors who constantly ask me if I play it (and Minecraft/Fortnite/Roblox) so I like to have an answer ready.

You’ve probably seen the merch at some point (or the above Fazbear/friends face), but let us know if you’ve ever played a Five Nights game before.
