* The english voice acting is ''horrible'' in places (with V being the most notorious offender), which can make it difficult to take things seriously.
** Some of the voice acting in the first game is also this, such as the monologues in the tapes detailing horrifying events happening to them while in the same placid monotone that someone would use for recording machine instructions.

** During the third game, Rei wakes up and gets surprised by Yoshino's ghost slipping onto her bed and grabbing her wrist. There's a few seconds of silence as the camera remains still on Rei and then Yoshino. Rei's face looks less like it's saying, "Argh, a ghost is touching me!" and more a completly derpy expression of "Uhh...", lacking fear.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: After the [[ValuesDissonance reaction]] of the "correct" choice in the first three games being human sacrifice, the fourth and fifth games make some attempt to avoid this - namely, that ''nobody'' was supposed to die in [=IV=], and that being sacrificed in V was such a great honor that people underwent it ''willingly'', to the extent that the miko who was selected found herself having to comfort the women who ''weren't'' chosen.

*** Permanently distorting the player's view and forcing them to run as fast as possible without paying attention to his surroundings in a game which in no small part relies on its visual aesthetics? I see nothing wrong with this plan...

* ValuesDissonance: These games are intensely Japanese, and it shows. A major one in several games, but is especially critical in the endings of the 1, 2, and 5. [[spoiler: The human sacrifices are the CORRECT choice, closing the hell gate and releasing all the souls trapped by the Calamity/Repentance/Black Water in the good endings. Any western game would have [[TakeAThirdOption Taken A Third Option]] rather than support human sacrifice.]]

*** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qft36hUnpr0 piano-only version of the Tsukimori Song]] which plays during the ending stat results is as beautiful as it is painfully bittersweet.

*** Though the base had always been broken about the fact that vulnerable pre-teen girls would run around in bikinis. Fatal Frame V took it UpToEleven by having the female characters have dessous as costumes, plus Gainaxing, creating a big outrage by especially the female players.
