Watch Conan O'Brien freak out over Outlast

In the his latest Clueless Gamer segment, late-night talk show host and comedian Conan O'Brien tackled three of the most popular horror games currently on the market, with some rather hilarious results — maybe not for O'Brien, but certainly for his audience.

According to O'Brien's companion Aaron Bleyaert, "the scariest games are on the computer." And this could be true, judging by his reaction to Slender, Amnesia: The Dark Descent and RedBarrels' Outlast. With the lights out and the volume up, Conan faces off against Slenderman first, which he notes comes with some very personal connotations and has a few choice words for the game's developer. He fares a bit better with Amnesia but picks the plot apart, making the game itself seem not all that threatening.

But Outlast is what really trips up O'Brien. Check out the full video above to see which horror game the comedian liked best.
