What's the best game where you fight a bear? The Best Games Ever Podcast episode 97

I'll be honest, it's far too many of them. Even if we're still waiting on a Yogi and Boo-Boo FPS.

Some bears in video games, alongside text about bears, for our podcast about bears.

Bears. What are they like? Big and furry to be honest. Also, often in video games. Whether it's they Yao Guai in Fallout New Vegas, or the two-headed bear in the NCR flag from Fallout New Vegas, or the two bears high fiving from that weird painting at the start of...er...Fallout New Vegas, you just can't escape them.

Why are we talking about bears this week, of all weeks, you ask? Well, it's probably not for the reason you think, so you'll just have to tune in, armed with your own bear suggestion that you can yell at the screen/into the air of if you're just listening via headphones, to find out. I'm sure it's a good reason, after all, we're talking about bears here.

So, which is the best game in which you fight a bear, according to our esteemed panel? This week it's Jim, Alex, James, and even a rare appearance from Dom, so you know the episode's going to feature some top notch bear analysis and probably mentions of about 15 different games that haven't actually been picked for this episode, but very much could have been if the stars had aligned the right way. Oh, and it starts with a gag about banging, just as an early indicator of that inherent quality.
