Does anyone else here play much of Paradox's Grand Strategy games? I currently own most of their current ones (Crusader Kings II, Europa Universalis III: Divine Wind, Victoria II & Hearts of Iron III), and I've found them to be one of my favourite series since I found out about them around a year ago.
For people who do play them, how's your current game going? I'm currently playing Crusader Kings II, as the de Normandie's and I am currently the King of Ireland, England and Wales, plus the Duke of Normandy and Aragon. I've just finished up sending my army on a crusade for Castille, and after all the effort I'd put into winning that (I was responsible for 40% of the warscore), all that they got out of it was a single province. However, the recent implosion of France has more than made up for it, as hopefully I'll be able to invade whichever Duchies win their wars of independence, just as soon as my levies build up enough to go to war again, and my vassals stop hating me for having their troops out.
Also, of the Paradox games, which is your favourite? Crusader Kings II has jumped to the position of being my favourite, a position formerly held by EU3. Victoria II is also good, but it's rather complex for me and I keep losing horribly. HOI3 isn't really my thing however, as it just feels so scripted and so difficult to do anything but recreate WWII. It doesn't really have the same alternate reality possibilities of the other games, partially because of its shorter timespan, and partially because of some of the mechanics, especially those relating to neutrality.
