Conan O'Brien Brings Back Clueless Gamer With Starfield, And It's Quite A Trip

Watch as Conan tries to flirt and blows up a grandma in the first new episode of Clueless Gamer in some time.


Conan O'Brien has brought back the popular Clueless Gamer segment in which the comedian and podcast host haplessly plays video games despite having no experience or skills playing games. In this latest entry, O'Brien and co-host Aaron Bleyaert journey through space on a grand (mis)adventure where O'Brien tries to flirt and later purposefully murders a grandma.

O'Brien plays through some of Starfield as a character designed after himself that's skinny, shirtless, and sporting red hair.

O'Brien and Bleyaert are playing Starfield not just to promote the game but also Samsung's cloud gaming platform through the Samsung Gaming Hub. Check out the segment below.

Clueless Gamer launched in 2014 and has featured a number of memorable segments over the years. Like that time O'Brien played Mario Kart with Zac Efron and Seth Rogen in a segment where O'Brien ended up having penises drawn on his forehead.

You can see which other games O'Brien has struggled through in other Clueless Gamer segments including Doom, Far Cry Primal, Fallout 4, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Game companies pay O'Brien to appear on Clueless Gamer to promote their games.

Clueless Gamer became so popular that there was talk of spinning the show off into its own dedicated series, but that has not yet happened.

Earlier this year, SiriusXM bought O'Brien's Team Coco podcast company for $150 million. O'Brien is currently working on a new Max travel show called "Conan Must Go."

As for Starfield, the game has passed 11 million players. A story expansion, Shattered Space, is now in development, but it does not have a release date.
