2012: Year of the Bow

NOW UP TO 50 GAMES!!!! thanks to DevourerOfTime to whom i ripped off twenty or so games off of his list.

2012 is undeniable the year of the bow. Any game shown or released in 2012 qualifies. Feel free to tell me anything I've missed!

What kind of bow is there in MoH: Warfighter?

Great list, BTW.

I think thats one that I barrowed from another list, If someone can confirm either way it would be helpful!

Truly, this is the age of bows.

No do this for the last 30 year and calculate if we have a significant increase in Bow-density ;)

plus, Ayane wears a big red bow in her classic costume which.. isn't a bow, but it's a bow.

You can probably add The Last of Us to the list, you could see in the demo there were arrows in the game.

From the Bow concept page, Kid Icarus Uprising (on the cover!), Legend of Grimrock, Disgaea 3, and Gotham City Impostors. There are also supposedly arrows in The Binding of Isaac, but I can't seem to find any mentions of bows.

Also, Bowser is in Mario Party 9. Just saying.

Dong Guard is never not funny to me.

Also, I quite like bows and arrows and crossbows and the like, so this is a good list. Viva la 2012!

Dark Souls was not released in 2012

Looking at the Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Quick Look, and there's an archer there, complete with BOW.

Also, don't know if this counts because its a 2011 game, but the "Aftermath" expansion for Battlefield 3 comes out December 2012, and it contains a new crossbow weapon.

Fuse has the Arcshot, a crossbow that melts dudes with hot liquid mercury.
