Video Games Have Become Obsessed With Bows And Arrows. But Which Game’s Bow Is Best?

If you've been playing big-budget action video games over the last couple of years, you've probably noticed a few trends. The graphics have gotten better. The animations have become more lifelike. The explosions have gotten more explosive.

And more recently, amid all those improvements, has come a trend that's even more earth-shattering and important: Video games have discovered the bow and arrow.

Kai (I think that is her name) from Heavenly Sword.

Great missons. Its so satisfying having full control over the arrow to bring a villian down.

Only use of six axis i thoroughly enjoyed

lol not in Skyward Sword. If only motion controls were not forced then maybe.

Diablo 2 from 15 years ago.

Guided arrow and multi-shot.

Haven't really enjoyed Turok since N64 but I'd have to agree with this

Turok was one of the best games on N64 and the slow-mo cheat was awesome. Too bad the last Turok was awful

"I am Turok"...

FYI the archer used the bow in the co-op arcade classic Gauntlet from 1985.

That's a franchise that could do with some love from a good Dev studio. It still has potential to be a great single player and multiplayer game... instead of dicking on it like the last couple of attempts ;)

Really Kotaku?

ironfist922015d ago

you expected anything better?

My top 3 are:
1. Skyrim
2. Tomb Raider
3. Far Cry 3

Actually, those are all that come to mind! It's been way too long since I played Turok on the N64.

1. God of War 2: Badass bow with ice storms and shit
2. Tomb Raider
3. Skyrim (one of the few weapons that are actually fun to use, especially since you don't have to deal with retarded cameras doing backflips)

Exactly.How can we forget Kratos's magic ice bow he tore out of a Titan's eye? What is more bad ass then that?
