Conan “Clueless Gamer” O’Brien reviews Watch Dogs

by William Schwartz

If you’re not familiar with Conan O’Brien’s “Clueless Gamer” series, you’re missing out. He’s reviewed big releases like GTA V, Tomb Raider, Minecraft, and Halo 4 using his own brand of comedy combined with his complete lack of understanding of video games. Not only is it funny but it shows how deeply the gaming industry has permeated contemporary pop culture.

You know what I’m not? I’m not good at video games. — Conan O’Brien

As he freely admits, he is terrible at video games. And guess what? He’s the source for the first Watch Dogs review. That’s right, NBC refugee Conan O’Brien is the source for the first “review” of one of biggest games of the summer if not the year. Honestly, he plays Watch Dogs like it’s GTA V.

Don’t get me wrong; it’s a funny video but it’s more of a preview of Watch Dogs than a review. That being said,  it does give you an idea of how big the scope of this game is. Hey, if Conan says Watch Dogs will blow your mind so there must be something there.
