Conan Absolutely Destroys Final Fantasy XV In Clueless Gamer
(Last Updated On: November 15, 2016)

Team Coco published a new video of Conan O’Brien and Elijah Wood playing an early copy of Final Fantasy XV, which is due out on November 29th. Conan and Wood have a hard time grasping what’s going on in Final Fantasy XV and they try to play through the game to get to the good parts. Unfortunately for them, it took too long for them to get to the good parts.

The video is only seven minutes long but it gets the point across that casuals may not find themselves enjoying Final Fantasy XV all that much if they go in expecting Call of Duty: N’Sync United. The game definitely has boy band flavors spiced throughout, but it’s not quite the all-out action fanfare blockbuster that other AAA titles are. You can check out the video below from Team Coco.

Aaron tries to give the duo a rundown of the story but they don’t seem very interested.

They remark about the quartet of young men looking like boy band members, and it’s nothing gamers haven’t already said a thousand times before. They then end up driving in the Regalia only for it to break down, resulting in them having to push the car to the next pit stop.

Conan begins to complain about the beauty-bound young men having to push a car up the road and then having to run through the desert to perform some fetch quests.

Eventually they camp out where the four young men setup an impressive camp site that would make Bear Grylls jealous.

The video then proceeds to show them traveling into town after they skip ahead some, only to find the boys talking about wedding dresses and fashion magazines. I’m pretty sure after today’s youth have been indoctrinated by the cult of SocJus our young teenagers in America will be gossiping about the latest wedding dresses and fashion trends as part of the push to erase gender identity in the good ‘ole U.S., of A.

The video then moves on to a big ‘ole boss fight against a giant turtle monster where Aaron informs them that it will take three real life days to defeat the monster. Conan proceeds to start banging his head against the wall.

By this time they’ve decided to give up on Final Fantasy XV.

I’m not sure if it was large open world and constant running around, the boy band members’ fascinating with wedding dress apparel or the boss fight that would take three real-life days to complete that was the final nail in the coffin but they eventually gave up and decided to try to escape without being seen, but they fall to do so.

Some of the commenters worried on the YouTube video that Conan’s negative comments might make Final Fantasy XV sell less on release day, but at this point Square is all in and they’ve made it this far. I tend to doubt that someone who doesn’t play video games like Conan not being very good at a hardcore JRPG is going to deter hardcore JRPG fans from picking up a copy on launch day.

    Now i dont want to play the gay card, but square enix played it.

    So you are gonna tell me that these guys that we gamers are gonna be control 4 guys as buddies and not bum buddies all though the game Not to be consider as Gay.

    Is that what you gonna say, i have problem with this, is the SJW crowd up in arms about this.

    I haven’t hear any, just people complaing that there no females in your party.

    You also need a season pass because there the extra scene and it part of the main story.

    Well i see a diverse game my first serious thinking to boycott this game i was also not happy about the FF13 series as well. But unlike that this is a joke.

    To be honest I couldn’t care less about what Conan or Fredo Baggins think about any game.

    If anything, casuals giving up on the game may be indication that it actually has depth.

    • I kind of feel the same way. Anything casuals don’t like because it’s too complex must be a good game, mechanically. We don’t get enough of those. The normies can stick with Call of Duty, Battlefield and Watch Dogs 2, since you can just tap one button and use the analog to have the game play itself for you.

      While that’s probably true, I want to say that there must be games so terrible that almost nobody would want to play them, and FF15 might be one of those.

    Bosses doesn’t take 3 real days to defeat it, you need to level up by grinding in 1 place to level up quick. It may take a hour or two.

    If you speed run the game you going to have problems.

  • giygas

    And I thought Monster Hunter boss fights were a slog.

  • C G Saturation

    Ah, yes. Conan. I heard he did a skit about gassing “redneck” Trump voters. Classy and not at all divisive. /sarcasm

    To say I’m disinterested in FF15 would be an understatement. Everything about FF15 looks horrible to me, except the unplayable females.

    The more I hear about this game the more I don’t wish to play it xD

  • EroBotan

    seems like this game’s target market is yaoi fangirls lol

    • Sevuz

      Sure sounds like it. Don’t sounds like it’s target at boys… unless they think like Hollywood women :/

    • lucben999

      You don’t like yaoi? What are you gay or something?
