Conan Gives Hitman: Absolution an Aqua Marine Rating, So You Know It’s Very Good


Over the summer, late night talk show host Conan O’Brien started a sketch series called the Clueless Gamer, where he reviews games from the perspective of someone with absolutely no interest in gaming, with help from a somewhat more knowledgeable “web guy” on his staff. Even though he’s just trying to be funny and not taking anything seriously, it’s amazing how he actually provides legitimate critique while poking fun at the games he plays. His limited skill allows him to stumble into situations that reveal different bugs and other little design flaws.

So far Coco has reviewed games like Skyrim, Resident Evil 6, Minecraft and some Kinect fodder, and they’ve all been hilarious. But his latest review for Hitman: Absolution is absolutely side splitting. I was brushing my teeth last night while watching it for the first time, and I damn near spit toothpaste froth all over my PC monitor later in the sketch when he reaches the cornfield.

“You know why? ‘Cause I’m a scarecrow in a cornfield, motherfucker!” Comedy gold.
