      Stellaris sounds interesting. That’s the one I’m most likely to kick myself for not buying on sale. I keep hearing it’s like Sid Meier’s Civ set in space, and it’s the first Paradox game that anyone can comprehend. Both comments are intended as compliments, but they seem a little backhanded.Report

      Stardew Valley is the ultimate game for those who enjoy sorting m&ms. There is *SO* much to do while, at the same time, it’s very low-key and Zen.Report

      There’s a lot to like about Stellaris, it has a lot of systems that deliver classic space opera moments. That said, it still feels somewhat incomplete – every war ends in a single decisive battle, trade and diplomacy are very bare bones and the victory conditions barely exist at all.

      Also, the next patch is going to be a big one – so it’ll be interesting to see what that does for the game.Report

    In general, I find them….very complex, with minimalist tutorials and about two to three times as much complexity as I can handle.

    I can grow to handle that level of complexity, but tossing me into it on “Easy” without an expansive tutorial that goes into details about the complex interactions?

    Honestly, I figure if I can ever get Crusader Kings or Europa Universalis figured out, it’ll probably translate to all their other games. That first hump is killer, and I spent years playing EVE.Report

      I’ve heard similar things. Stellaris is supposed to be their easiest game to get started in, and the way of thinking translates between Paradox games. I just think about the amount of effort it takes to figure some games out, and I’m not positive I want to go down that road.Report
