Watch Conan O'Brien Fumble His Way Through Final Fantasy 15

JRPG’s clearly aren’t Conan’s cup of tea.

Late night talk show host Conan O’Brien has once again proven he can be a good sport by producing another entry in his show’s “Clueless Gamer” series, a series in which O’Brien, a man who has stated numerous times that he is not a gamer and has absolutely no interest in video games, “reviews” popular upcoming games for our amusement. For his newest Clueless Gamer entry, O’Brien takes a look at the upcoming RPG Final Fantast 15.

Now, mastering even the very basics of a game’s controls and in-game systems is something which O’Brien often struggles to do and this proves especially true with Final Fantasy 15. The early sections of the game involve performing menial tasks like pushing a stalled car, setting up a campsite, and admiring a wedding dress, making O’Brien question why Square Enix even bothered making the game in the first place. Fortunately, O’Brien is joined by actor (and proud gamer) Elijah Wood, who happily takes over playing duties in order to ease O’Brien’s suffering.

You can watch the full video segment below (though be warned it is a little NSFW due to O’Brien’s more “colorful” comments). Final Fantasy 15 is set to launch on November 29th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For more on Final Fantasy 15, be sure to read about how it’s getting its own collector’s edition car from Audi.
