Far Cry 3: 100 Bears Vs. 100 Men (VIDEO)

Who would win in a battle between 100 armed men and 100 ferocious bears?

Obviously we will never know - such a thing would be totally hideous.

But in the time-honoured way of video games - which so often simulate things too horrible to actually experience in person - the question has now been answered.

The game Far Cry 3 is full of wildlife which are able to coexist with - and attack - humans and other animals, including bears, and so it was that one gamer took it on themself to simulate the battle of all battles.

Take a look above to see who came out ahead in this frankly reprehensible virtual experiment.
