Conan O’Brien Has the First (and Funniest) Watch Dogs Review


Still contemplating whether or not to buy Ubisoft’s hyped open world hacking action-adventure game Watch Dogs with only a few days left to go before launch? Perhaps Conan O’Brien can help in the decision making process. Or maybe not.

Conan attempts to play the PlayStation 4 version of Watch Dogs in the latest installment of his late night comedy sketch, the Clueless Gamer. The operative word there is attempts, because Conan, by his own admission, sucks at video games and doesn’t even really like them. Still, it’s hilarious watching him run over civilians, crash on motorcycles, take over the job of a UPS delivery man, shoot at trees and dead air, accidentally murder a woman in a housecoat after sneaking onto her boat, commenting on protagonist Aiden Pearce’s fashion, and asking the obvious question everyone wants to know — can Aiden hack into the city’s mainframe and watch people having sex?

The “review” provides no meaningful substance about the quality of the game, but damn is it funny to watch him play the game so badly. That’s all that matters here.
