Conan Survives the Terror (and Occasional Boredom) of Slender, Amnesia, and Outlast for Halloween


Last week, the Team Coco website hosted a poll for fans to vote for the scary game they wanted to see late night comedian Conan O’Brien play and review. During Thursday night’s show, the results of the poll were revealed in the Halloween edition of the Clueless Gamer, in which Conan wound up playing–in sex tape night vision–three spooky games: Slender, Amnesia: The Dark Descent (the poll winner), and Outlast, which made the show due to an overwhelming write-in vote.

The “boredom” of Slender and the “forgettable” Amnesia weren’t so thrilling for Conan, but he did have some creepy fun playing Outlast, including a particularly traumatizing scene involving an evil naked doctor being caught with his pants down after being crushed by an elevator. It’s a good thing the main character carries around a video camera so he could get a nice zoomed-in view of asshole and ball sack. Now that really is scary.

If you missed its TV airing or just want to watch it again for some twisted pre-Halloween laughs, hit play below to watch the latest edition of Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer.
