Conan O'Brien Plays Final Fantasy 15, Calls it an "Epic Waste of Time"

"This is like Middle-earth Entourage."


Conan O'Brien's "Clueless Gamer" segment has aired its newest chapter, this one themed around Square Enix's long-awaited Final Fantasy XV--and it's a wild one. O'Brien plays through a portion of the game on PlayStation 4 alongside Lord of the Rings actor Elijah Wood. Take a look:

The whole video is a treat--here are some of my favorite Conan quotes about the game:

  • "This is like Middle-earth Entourage"
  • "Nothing like running through the desert in leather"
  • "This game should be called wait for your death in real time"
  • "Who came up with this?"
  • "Are we meant to be confused?"
  • "Is this a video game written by James Joyce? It's just madness"
  • "This is an aggressive wasting of our time"
  • "Why would someone play this game?!"
  • "Last time I beat on a worm for 72 hours I was in college"
  • This whole thing, it's like an epic, blue balls waste of time"

After years of development and multiple delays, Final Fantasy XV is slated to arrive on November 29 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

In other news about Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix is working with Game of War: Fire Age developer Machine Zone to make a mobile MMO based on the RPG.
