With a big game release, comes another episode of Clueless Gamer with Conan O’Brien. He is joined by Elijah Wood as they both try out Square-Enix’ latest title, Final Fantasy XV. However, a game of such scale wouldn’t appeal to someone who produces segments like this for a five minute chuckle.
I’ve never been this confused about a game in my life and that is saying something,” Conan says while trying to come to terms with what he is playing. Final Fantasy titles have such obscure story lines and settings, that they won’t appeal to everyone. In saying that, Final Fantasy XV seems to bridge the fantasy of the series with a modernized setting, and it certainly looks very interesting from an aesthetic point of view.
It seems that Conan didn’t like the pacing or the way he was thrown into the story, or learning how the game plays out. “An epic blue balls waste of time,” as Conan sums it up at the end. Final Fantasy XV releases at the end of November, and fans should definitely have more fun with it than Conan seems to have had.
If you’re a fan of the franchise and are looking forward to playing this, don’t take it to heart. Take it as television entertainment only.
