Conan O'Brien plays 'Watch_Dogs', is terrible

Late night show host/chummy redhead Conan O'Brien is a clueless gamer, hence the title of his recurring segment on video games. In the latest Clueless Gamer, CoCo takes on one of the most hotly anticipated games of the year: Watch_Dogs.

In Watch_Dogs you play the rogueishly-named Aiden Pierce, a dude in a cool jacket who has a smartphone and the ability to 'hack' just about every goddamn thing in the game's open-world environment. You can hack traffic lights to mess up traffic, or look through security cameras to scope out an area; that type of thing. Basically, the technological world becomes a giant puzzle for you to solve while you carry out missions and escape from other dudes who very much want to put holes in you with bullets. 

Needless to say, Conan is godawful at the game. It's a little like watching your mum play. Just as painful, but quite a bit funnier.
