Conan O’Brien‘s Clueless Gamer segment often features a humorous look at the latest big games, with some help from celebrity guests. The latest installment takes a look at some of the more meandering parts of Final Fantasy XV, with help from Elijah Wood. 

The epic RPG aims to give players a seemingly endless amount of things to do, some of which might not make for the most exciting gameplay, like pushing a car up a hill and collecting plants in the desert.

Conan spends a great deal of time in the clip commenting on the main characters’ choice of outfits, and likens them to a “Middle-earth Entourage.” Things get awkward when he realizes the development team of the game he loudly criticizes are sitting in the next room over.

Although Final Fantasy XV may not be Conan’s cup of tea, it remains one of the most anticipated games of the year. The game finally launches for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Nov. 29.
