Not sure how video games depict bows. But they can be pretty damn quite if you know how to make them so.
My Samick Sage is whisper quiet due to llama wool string silencers and Stiktammer limb silencers. The combo makes the bow super quiet to the point of me standing there right next to the thing releasing barely hearing anything.
Interesting. I've owned a recurve bow for around 6 years now, shot it quite a bit. Obvioiusly, it's no gunshot, but when that sting goes taut on arrow release, it's not whisper either. Then again, I also wasn't aware that there are string silencers and limb silencers, so I was operating under the assumption that bow noise was inevitable. The more you know, eh?

BTW for "ultimate modern tactical cross bow", PSE TAC series crossbows. A crossbow that replaces the AR15's upper receiver so your crossbow will have that black rifle cool factor. OK there are pretty amazing crossbows. Fast and powerful, and it is sort of cool they replace the AR15 upper receiver, wonder if they will come out with an AK variant?
My favorite quotes from Rorschach from the comic Watchmen
"Once a man has seen society's black underbelly, he can never turn his back on it. Never pretend, like you do, that it doesn't exist."
"None of you seem to understand. I'm not locked in here with you. You're locked in here with *ME*!"
Scott wrote I read somewhere about an English bloke that fought in world war two with a bow and a sword. He had at least one confirmed kill with the bow. Of course, he was thought to be a bit eccentric.
He was an Australian named Jack Churchill I believe. I've the tac 15e before, very impressive,but extremely heavy and a little awkward. Quiet as far a crossbows go though. I have no doubt that someone somewhere has or will use one in a combat scenario. Wish I could see those vids Ineff ! :-)
