You should play Five Night's at Freddy because it is an exciting horror game. The ratings of the game have been really good.

List of ratings :
- Metacritic : 4/6
- Gamespot: 8/10

In this game you may not be able to roam around but this is a kind of game where you have to be alert and constantly looking at the cameras. The price of the game may be quite pricey but it is worth it because there include five nights. The two more nights are extras. Once you reach Day Six you have to be very alert because Freddy is more active than the others.

The is a easter egg in the game called,"Golden Freddy". Gold Freddy is a clone of the original freddy. He only appears in day one and two.

My opponent's points about the debate can be summed as follows: The game is exciting, it has good ratings, there are 7 nights, and there are easter eggs. Now on to my rebuttals

1) Whether or not the game is exciting is left entirely down to player opinions. While it can be argued there is a generally large group singing its praises, the fact that a modest number of people criticize it for being jump-scare dependent and predictable show that it cannot apply to all audiences. There is no guarantee that this game will be exciting for everyone, and thus my opponent's claim does not sufficiently prove the motion.

2)The good ratings of the game reflect only the opinions of the reviewers. The reviews are generally good for deciding whether to buy a game, but in recent years have been shown to be unreliable. The Kane & Lynch incident[1] comes to mind. Even then, my previous rebuttal shows that the opinions of a few cannot be spread over the many.

3)7 nights account for very little gameplay time. Each night lasts 8 or 9 minutes of real time, for a rough maximum of 1.5 hours. The time of 1.5 hours to $5 is easily outstripped by any other game. Sandbox games like Minecraft provide potentially infinite playtime. Multiplayer PvP games like Smite, DOTA or LoL give that amount of play for free. Further, a game like Binding of Isaac, for $5, clocks at 10 hours, purely in main storyline. This comes with replayability value as well, given randomly generated levels. All the games I mentioned and far more provide better playtime for money than Five nights.

4)Easter eggs are present in many games, and are not considered at selling point. The existence of this Golden Freddy is far more annoying than enjoyable. It is not a reference to anything, but instead forces a player's game to crash.

Points

1) The game caters to horror fans
The entire premise of the game is survival horror. However, this genre is not the entire market. Many players prefer a shooter, an RPG, or a strategy game. Consumers who know what they want have no reason to try out a game which they know by experience will not be enjoyable. Should someone who is an avid fan of FPS games randomly spend $5 to try and discard this game? Suggesting that all people should play this game is far too close-minded a thought.

2) Horror
Yes, the entire point of the game is horror, but that is why some people shouldn't play it. Many people don't actually like horror, but in a different way than those listed above. There are people who hate horror due to actually being scared. Further, someone with a weak heart should not play the game. Actual fear, and possibly death, are consequences of these games. People who are likely to be afraid of the game or have medical conditions, should not being playing the game. Unless abject terror and nightmares, as well as medical conditions and possibly death, are good things

If this is a piece put down as advertising, it is not very well done. If not, I look forward to your rebuttals and points.
