I think that this page is way too long. Video games that have a lot of examples should have their own pages. Also, the examples on this page should be put into alphabetical folders so it does not take so much scrolling down to find what you are looking for.

Why is Five Nights at Freddy's here? Sure they're weird and scary, but they're just robots possessed by ghosts, nothing they do really qualifies them as an Eldritch Abomination.

I am guessing Square Peg, Round Trope, there.

Should they be removed from the list?

Honestly, I fail to see what's so eldritch about the Reapers. Yes, they're big. Yes, they're old. Yes, they can screw over a whole galaxy six ways to Sunday. But the fact remains that from what I've seen, they don't do anything particularly eldritch. They don't warp reality, they don't drive you mad, and they don't have any powers, just ridiculously advanced weapons. They seem to be just a cybernetic, Sufficiently Advanced Alien race that likes to think that they're Eldritch Abominations and play that up for all it's worth.

You're forgetting about the indoctrination, and how each is basically a group-mind made out of the ground-up remains of a dead civilisation. They're a bit more than just machines.

Really, it's the Reaper carcass sequence in ME 2 that provides the best evidence for their EA status.
