Conan O' Brian plays Hitman Absolution

Conan played a bit of Resident Evil 6 not that long ago, and that made for a great piece. Now he's played a bit of Absolution, and this in my opinion is even better than that. The sheer ridiculousness of the game brings so much humor out.

Edit: Video should work now.

The AI sure looks a bit stupid. Other than that the levels look pretty open, which is a good sign.

These reviews should be on Metacritic.

"Not bad, very good" .. beats the 100 points rating system

I'm not sure we saw enough of any level to judge whether they are open or not. The video was edited in a way that didn't show any movement around the levels at all.

If he would have taken the time to actually learn how to play the game instead of just talking shit about it, he would have given it a fair score.

This game deserves at least a cerulean blue.

Man, that bad guy really does look like Ron Swanson.

I'm glad Square got behind Hitman. Hopefully it deserves the push.

These always make me laugh and the little amount of gameplay shown looked pretty good.

He cares as much about video games as I care about kissing celebrity asses.

Here we have a non gamer instantly solving gaming criticisms rating system. I love it!

Based on this video I give the game a #89CFF0

EDIT: Suck on that Metacritic!

Personally I feel it is more of a #ED2024, but you know - opinions.

This was amazing. Giant Bomb really should shift to a color rating for all reviews.

I'm almost certain Conan exhibits the same range of emotions playing Hitman as my nephew playing Halo in this video

Well when a guy who hates games gives one a aquamarine score you know it is good. Seriously though he obviously enjoyed some of it, not to mention it was funny as shit.
