Title: Which of these 4 games has the best archer class?

Nethack is the worst one by far. Throwing daggers is way better.

Dungeon Crawl seems to be better if your a CeHu, with your speed and the ability to cast some spells.

Angband you have access to useful spells.

How's ADOM's archer classes?

In Angband (until recent balancing changes), every class is an archer class because archery is quite overpowered. The ranger class just gets extra shots at a high level.

It's gotta be ADOM.  They fire arrows like they're using machine guns, they have great damage, reasonable durability, and ammunition of slaying destroys basically everything.

I don't know. What version was it at in 2010? 3.2.1 or so? http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showpost.php?p=35962&postcount=151

Archers in ToME are the best - fast-firing, lots of interesting arrow/bow types (pinning and slime arrows are fantastic) and various activated abilities like blinding shots and burst shots.
