E3 2012: A musical video tribute to the fact that every bloody game had a bow and arrow in it

Seriously, EVERY bloody game

Tomb Raider. Crysis 3. Splinter Cell. Assassin's Creed III. Far Cry 3. Disonored. It felt like E3 this year was typified by an abundance of bow and arrow combat. Much like every single game last year was set on a boat, there were so many shots of stretchy string and shooty sticks at E3 2012 that prolonged viewing of the show's trailers would ensure Robin Hood dreams for all.

So our video team have made a megamix paying tribute to the phenomenon. And it's brilliant.


Long-time GR+ writer Dave has been gaming with immense dedication ever since he failed dismally at some '80s arcade racer on a childhood day at the seaside (due to being too small to reach the controls without help). These days he's an enigmatic blend of beard-stroking narrative discussion and hard-hitting Psycho Crushers.
