Late night talk show host and comedian Conan O'Brien has returned with another Clueless Gamer segment, this time featuring Bethesda's post-apocalyptic role-playing game, Fallout 4. As featured in the promotional teaser we highlighted yesterday, O'Brien and co-host Aaron Bleyaert donned some blue-coloured jumpsuits and Pip-Boys to get into the theme of the game. You can watch the full segment on the Team Coco website, or in the embed below.

In addition to the Clueless Gamer segment, O'Brien also featured in a video titled "Conan's Apocalyptic 'Fallout 4' Cold Open." You can watch the video on the Team Coco YouTube channel here, which leads up to the Clueless Gamer episode.

Previous Clueless Gamer segments in the past featured The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Assassin's Creed Unity, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, amongst others. It has been reported that some publishers and developers pay for their games to be featured in the segment, with a quarter of the games allegedly making it on to the show as paid endorsement deals.

Fallout 4 officially arrives on November 10 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game was very well-received in GameSpot's review, scoring a nine out of ten. Senior reviews editor Peter Brown praised the dense world the game had to offer, combat system, and the impact of player choices on the narrative.

Why are so many of you offended by Conan joking about games and gamers? I've been playing games for the last 16 years and I find his Clueless Gamer segments hilarious - much better than most review sites actually. I saw more Fallout 4 gameplay from his 'review' than I did from GameSpot, and actually learnt a bit more (obviously knowing beforehand its a plus/minus 9 metacritic score).

He's stereotyping gamers for humor, and a lot of the jokes he makes are actually true about a lot of people who play games (myself included). Seriously if this stuff offends you you need to get out more. Besides, Bethesda sponsored his review.

@elmdreamer: Seriously, even I can laugh about it because it's true about 80% of the people who play these games. Some people have no sense of humor. I love these Clueless Gamer segments.

Conan can make all the jokes about "never going outside", but all the same, he's just as childish and clueless as the worst gamers out there. :D And yes, he is very funny.

No gamer should watch any of these bullshit talk shows. How many times have they made fun of "gamers playing in basement" "living with their mums" "get a girlfriend".

And now, since gaming has blown up, theyre trying to get in on the thing they have insulted for decades?

Go **** yourselves.

How can someone who just spouts rehearsed jokes written by an army of writers still manage to be this unfunny?

I understand people are very butt hurt about graphics, but if that's everything to you in a video game, then sucks to be you. Gameplay/amazing story > graphics.

Fallout 4 WILL be GOTY....if blind people are judges.

Seriously, I get that this game isn't all about graphics and the game overall is great, but to deny how piss-poor it looks in 2015 is just ignorant.

People wouldn't knock on it so much either, if idiots wouldn't run around trying to defend it. Just admit it's sub-par graphically but the gameplay makes up for it. At least we'd have respect for you.

@theninjaguydon: Personally, I have no problem admitting that. This game IS awesome, but for all the most important reasons; Game play and story. However, it IS a huge step up graphically from Fallout 3. But yeah, there are plenty of games that have better graphics. I'll be spending far too much time playing this game for the next four or five months.

I have never liked Conaan skits involving video games, I know the skits are meant to be funny but it takes away from the hard work and talent that was needed to make such an incredible game/art. I love this hobby that is gaming for nearly 35yrs, and while i feel nothing should be taken seriously, a constant disdain of gaming and gamers while profiting by getting a younger audience that not in the baby boomer generation starts to get old.

At least other late night shows actually show off the games and how entertaining and fun they can be while also celebrating the talent it took to make them. Fallout 4 is way more then just toned asses and exploding gore.

@jenovaschilld: I think you are overreacting. The devs themselves could take the joke well. In fact, Bethesda actually sponsored this very video.

@GhoX: they did sponsor this episode. Gaming is a multi-billion industry, and Conan is just trying to get a tiny piece of the cake. There's no harm in that.

How can this game be released in 2015 when it was clearly made in 2009

HORRIBLE GRAPHICS

Bethesda: We'll get the players to fix it for us

(game of the year.... yeah right..)

@kartuzia: Graphics from 2009??? I don't think so. I actualy wish this game had been made in 2009 as you say, because back then I could run almost any game with graphics maxed... right now my PC needs a serious upgrade if I am to play this. As far as I see it the graphics in this game aren't amazing, but they are still prety good. I honestly don't see where are the horrible graphics from any gameplay footage I have seen so far. It's a fact they may not look as prety or polished as a few other games out there but... who plays a game just for graphics anyway? It's not like a game is only about graphics, you need to look at the whole package, otherwise everyone would be better off watching a movie. As far as it comes to me I wouldn't even care if graphics were worse if that would allow me to play this game on my current PC.

@kartuzia: Agreed.

This day and age we have game like Witcher 3 that looks gorgeous and is a huge open world. I personally expected a lot more.... This looks like Fallout 3 with some lip gloss.

Seriously, look at that town Conan walks through - if you would have told me it was a year one PS3 game then I would have believed you.

@kartuzia: I'm rocking a G1 GTX 980, and I couldn't give 2 damns if the graphics look dated - take that trash somewhere else. GRAPHICS ARE NOT WHAT GAMING IS ALL ABOUT.

@IndySandbagTrik: its these new age gamers that didnt grow up with 2d and then the beginnings of 3d to appreciate how far games have come.

@immortality20: It's satire. Take it or leave it, but it's not sincere.

Patronizing is if it was praising video games just to spite gamers insinuating he's above it. Conan very much doesn't do that- regardless of whether you think this bit is funny or not.

Conan is portraying himself legitimately with video games for comedic affect- because he isn't into them and he doesn't have to be (it's not his thing). It's funny to watch him fiddle around with them because of that.
