Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson have always been in the limelight with their never-ending friendship. We have often seen them troll each other over social media and in person. But it does not end here. In various interviews, the Jumanji stars have opened up about their love for video games.

Notably, in a 2017 promotional interview for the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the actors were questioned about it, as the movie is entirely based on a game. Kevin, being a comedian, had a hilarious reaction in banter, claiming he loved ‘hand stick.’ On the other hand, the Rock was pretty upfront with his answers as he mentioned his favorite game to be Mortal Kombat. He also shared his love for the 1986 arcade game, Rampage.

The Jumanji duo is highly connected to the gaming world for years. In 2001, alongside Bill Gates, the WWE star introduced the Xbox to the world. He also teamed up with Microsoft in 2020 to distribute the new custom-made Xbox series X and S consoles to various children’s hospitals.
