Oh boy I love archery. I enjoyed the archery minigames a lot. I also love hitting the pole in TP. The one that gives you a piece of heart. Usually I have to try it multiple times but this time I managed to do it once and haven't played the game for years
Archery on foot is great. In almost every Zelda game. It's so fun and works well.
Horseback archery on the other hand can die in a fire, then it's chared ashes need to be thrown into the sun. Rage inducing, toxic cancer it is.
The Hawkeye is the best thing to happen to archery. I loved sniping the Bokoblins in Lost Village and in the Bulbin Fortress. It was just really fun. It's ridiculous that there's no dot for showing where you're shooting like on the hookshot. I guess aiming is supposed to be part of it, but I can't make myself like it.
