Conan O'Brien calls the Final Fantasy 15 dev team "mass murderers of people's time"

Conan O'Brien does not play video games. Hell, he doesn't even really like them. That said, it's always a treat when he sits down to play one as part of his Clueless Gamer video series. And this week, the game in the hot seat is the highly-anticipated Final Fantasy 15 (opens in new tab). It uh… it might not be for him.

There's already a bunch of comments on the video's YouTube page complaining about how negative Conan's reaction was and how there wasn't a full appreciation for the game. But I gotta say, this might be my favorite Clueless Gamer segment so far. First of all, the guy is a comedian, so of course he's going to poke fun. Second, it's called "Clueless Gamer" - his apathy and lack of understanding is part of the bit.

Third, and most important of all, it's okay to laugh at yourself and the things you like. I don't know about you, but I'm still massively interested in FF15 - a comedian's ribbing isn't going to change that. Just sit back, enjoy the show, and be secure in your hobby.

Besides, being forced to push a car through the desert does sound like a pretty arduous waste of time.
