Touchscreen Bow versus Crosshairs Bow

Touchscreen: Hold the jank sideways, pull the image of a string back, fire at will.

Crosshairs: The same kind of aiming stuff they showed in the previews for shooters, just without the peripheral.

Assuming this game is using the Wii U tablet deal as the exclusive controller, which method would you prefer? Obviously optional is the best, but if I had to pick I think the touchscreen would be killer.

(Concession: it would look super dinky using a single finger to fire a bow, but it'd still be fun.)

Also if they have the slingshot, and they reeeeeeally shouldn't considering how pointless it is to have both, touchscreen flat down instead of to the side would also be fun.

If they changed it from a normal bow to a crossbow, this would work with a trigger and look amazing.

Wait, screw your whole touchscreen idea. I've played touch screen shooters on the iPhone, they suck. The good ones are always tilt the device, line up the cross hairs, hit the fire button. Tap where you want to shoot is too easy and doesn't feel right.

Wait, there's an iPhone app where the iPhone simulates a bowstring and you aim it at a separate screen to fire at targets?

Cool!
