I played Shadow of Mordor on Easy because I didn’t want to have to have to re-recruit every captain after they betrayed me or have to shame them first and recruit later. This speeds the game up and let’s me play as the badass my hero is purported to be. I’m also play Assassin’s Creed Origins on Easy for the same reason, the games is the same except the battles are shorter.
