Default Am I the only one here that plays Paradox games?

Hearts of Iron 4 just came out yesterday. I'm really liking it so far.

Crusader Kings 2 is the only Paradox game I've played, but I liked it a lot. I've got my eye on Stellaris but I've also got a lot of other games on my plate right now, so I'll probably wait for the first few pieces of DLC and maybe a Steam sale of some kind.

I'm guessing Hearts of Iron doesn't exactly have the interpersonal stuff that made Crusader Kings so distinctive?

HOI4 is ok.

When I first played it I thought it was hot garbage, everything seemed too simple and fast paced. Now five hours in, eh its ok. Certainly not worth the years of delay and death of east vs. west, but whatever.

was really looking forward to Stellaris but it's gotten some lukewarm reviews so I'll probably wait until it's on sale

Yeah, I played Stellaris a lot for about a week. I'm sure it'll be great in about year and half, it does have some problems right now.

in euiv i immensely enjoyed blobbing as france after seeing the imperial half of the burgundian succession somehow passing to savoy allowing me to absorb all burgundian lands as well as savoy and the netherlands with relative ease giving me the required springboard to establish colonial dominance over the english in the americas and set up a 400 gold/month trade empire in the east indies before everything got torn apart by revolting hindustanis imperialist spain and a crippling lack of manpower

I've tried to play an entire game of crusader kings 2 on several occasions.
Somehow, my computer remains intact.

During my latest attempt to enjoy it, I played as Hardråde and had most of the british isles well bent. Before I got around to ending that war as the new king of England, I died while killing off rioters back home in Trøndelag.

Usually what'll happen is the land that I went to war for gets ceded to someone else
I guess dont ask HRE for help unless you're already sieging the territories you wanted


I've gotten ahold of some of the expansions now, so I'm gonna try some more

hey so stellaris utopia is also pretty good ive been playing a bunch of it and having a better time than i did with stellaris 1.0

still a lot of stuff that is kind of silly in terms of design and ridiculous balance issues but a lot more variety and spice than the original

this game deserves as many expansions as ck2 and eu4 and every time it gets them it becomes progressively better

whereas i think that ck2 and eu4 are kind of getting pretty bloated with their latest expansions

reapers due especially was a really obtrusive expansion that pushed hard and made disease outbreaks a really major part of gameplay in being a big influence on timing for intrigue and warfare

Yeah I dug this expansion

the game still gets pretty boring but it was cool when my peaceful weed smoking race of robot building libertarian mushroom men dropped the whole peaceful thing to double down on egalatarianism when I hit a button I didn't understand

Also smoke on the street is that CKIII may be in the works

Im all about paradox games, EU4, stellaris, hoi4, ck2 and especially vicky 2 also others. I remember starting with eu3 and next thing I knew it was 4 am and I was colonizing north America as Sweden. Good times. They are one, if not, my fav developer.
