Archery is underpowered, any exceptions to this rule?

#1rkingPosted 10/4/2013 4:53:00 PM
In every RPG I've played the archer ends up being the weakest class/specialization/job/whatever, but I like archers so I deal with it. Are there any good games where this isn't the case? I'd also prefer not to play a Diablo style game, I've got too many of those to play already. Thanks for any suggestions.

Only one I can think of is Skyrim and Fiesta.

Skyrim is obvious.

Fiesta is an online MMO I used to play a few years ago. The Archers have insane AoE and DPS.

In the new Tomb Raider, the bow is easily the best weapon in the game.

I think Warrior Archer is one of the best classes in Dragon Age Origins. Or maybe Rogue Archer.

I've made a Rogue archer in DA:O, it was impressive in Awakening but through the main game I wasn't too impressed. Haven't tried Warrior archer but it's on my list.
