What game has the best archery?
Are there any games with actually satisfying bow and arrow gameplay?
That might sound weird especially because it was an MMO but I really loved the old style Daoc bow mechanics. It was just a couple of key presses but there was something to it I cannot really name. It felt like there was weight behind each shot, great feedback when you hit something, I dunno, hard to convey really.
Far Cry 3 and Crysis instantly come to mind.
I'm going to get hammered for this one, but I think Sheva's bow in Resident Evil 5 was very satisfying. When I was playing co-op everyone would scramble over ammo and I'd be chillin' and killin'.
I don't like Dark Souls 2, but the bow and arrow combat is far more satisfying and viable than DaS1. I was disappointed to shit when I played DaS1 and found that bow and arrow fucking sucked for anything other than pulling enemies.
Even if it's not at all realistic, MH bow combat is pretty satisfying to me
Monster Hunter and Dragon's Dogma.
Also honorable mention goes to Simon's Bowblade in Bloodborne.
You just need to get good. I only have CPP for the comfy grip and never use the other stick for anything in MH even when I play gunner.
Good way to learn how to play any weapon in the MH games is just go through low rank with one type of weapon.
start with the bow, it's the easiest to get into, always use the power coating, charge your shots fully, and find the shot dist. at which the screen shakes when you hit a monster and keep hitting them from approximately that distance
