Civ is good. It is literally about coloring in the map for me. Nothing else. ._.

Maybe one of you guys can explain this.

My Steam stats always seem to reset to zero every few years and I am not doing it. I don't tell it to delete my logs or records, it just seems to do it on its own. I noticed because I hit 333 hours in Civ V. But I did that already. :U

For me as of late I've developed a bit of an obsession with Pokemon.  I am now on an epic quest to finally catch them all.  Only have about 180 left to go.  So close.

Civilization and Paradox games are the most addictive in the can't-stop-playing sense.

I'd say TF2 is probably most addictive to me in the can't-stop-coming-back sense.

"Addictive" reward-conditioning games like MMORPGs and puzzle apps usually bore me very, very quickly.

A roguelike called Elona.

The only game I had to force myself to drop forever.

Right. Elona. I had to cut that off too.
At other times I got hooked on Haven and Hearth, Salem, and Mabinogi.

Love the games that just sorta let you dick around all you want. They sorta just throw you in and you've gotta find your own way.
I want more like that even if they're bad for my health. :0

As Ulti said, Crusader Kings is really really fun.

I'm doing a megacampaign, which means converting saves from the end of one Paradox GS game to the beginning of the next, as Venice.

So much fun.

I never reach the end of a game of Crusader Kings. I always either get my title revoked by some dicklord a few years in or expand in power so rapidly that the game stops being fun before the end date.

And I'm running out of silly ideas for goals.

I actually have played Spore a few times in the last couple of weeks.

It could have filled a niche that I need.

Instead we got this.

Yes.

Then we go play Star Citizen. Ship sale over the next few weeks! You may be able to get something nifty.

Paradox should get their thumb out of their ass and make a Victoria game that's actually good so we can do a proper megacampaign with official save file converters.

Don't really care about Hearts of Iron.

Mine is just a normal Venice game that on a whim turned into a Cathar Venice game. When I convert to EU4 I'll probably give up all my lands north of the danube and east of Montenegro.

I haven't played as much CK2 as EU4 so it's still fresh for me, I suppose.

On topic, I've also been playing Risk of Rain fairly constantly, as well as Skullgirls.

I been on the same series I just started breeding again. Not going as far as to breed shiny pokemon I'll have to " catch me all" before I can do that seriously anyway. Just working on a good doubles team.

Europa Universalis IV is the one I need to play, right?

I have III. Should I just play that? Or should I get a newer one?

3 is still a good game, 4 is superficially similar but has all new mechanics. I haven't really played either intensively enough to say if one or the other is better. 4 has some elements which I definitely prefer, like the Diplomacy/Economic/Military point system and the trade system. Really its up to you, Paradox just generally make awesome games.

Some people prefer 3, some people prefer 4. I've never played 3 myself.

Of note is that I've noticed the tutorials in Paradox games can be somewhat lacking. I would advise watching a Let's Play on YouTube if you're going to get into it and aren't already familiar with the mechanics.

However, the EU games are probably the easiest and therefore the best to start with, so go for it.

I plan to use cheats the entire time because all I care about is coloring in the map.

Which map is most fun to color in over the course of the hours?

Some people prefer the flat map of EU3, some people the texture of EU4.

Also EU4 has a more active modding community and there are some pretty great mapmods for it.

Yeah, and it's considerably more complex than its predecessor with all the updates and whatnot that've been put out since its release.
