Started From the Bottom: the Rise of the Bow

IGN - The bow is not new by any means. However, it has taken a more prominent and defined role in the world of video games heading into the next-gen. With its modern implementation, the bow has benefited the Action/Survival genre in various ways. In the past the bow was more of a “special” or “secondary” weapon. Ammo was often rare, and the weapon itself was fun, but often had a minimal impact on gameplay. The bows transition from secondary weapon to primary weapon has contributed to the genre by affecting the pace of the game and limiting, but not hindering, the players power. Mankind’s recent fascination with survival and various apocalypses has certainly opened the door and aided the recent prevalence of the bow. (Culture)
