No matter how much he denies it, clearly, Doc rooted for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Because when the game lost to Nintendo’s hit multiplayer sensation Splatoon 3, Doc posted this tweet from his official Twitter account. 

But realizing his bias, Doc agreed on giving Splatoon 3 a chance. He added in the reply, “Playing this game next week.

Fans give their explanation to the situation by citing different examples and reasons

According to them, one has brand recognition, and it tastes good, but compared to the other, the difference in quality is heaven and earth.
