Paradox Interactive is a company known primarily for publishing PC strategy games like Hearts of Iron, Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis, and Battletech. Paradox games are typically extremely deep, long, and complex. This is obviously a positive aspect in many ways, but some argue it has the consequence of making the game boring. In addition, Paradox games tend to have a nightmarish amount of DLC.

I'm not a fan of most things they've published outside of Pillars of Eternity. Grand strategy games aren't for me, and seeing how much DLC those games have don't make them enticing in the slightest.

I can see where you're coming from. I personally enjoy them, but they get boring and tedious much quicker than other strategy games like Civilization IMHO.

I love a good complex game, but Paradox Games are beyond me. Cannot even begin to understand how to play them. Really REALLY wanted to get into Stellaris, but just couldn't.

omg i have been trying stellaris and lost like 2 games just cuz the enemy had such a stronger millitary and i had no heckin idea how to make a decent fleet. Hoping my tactic of constantly being near the fleet limit is gonna work.

Paradox games are kinda like The Sims in that you dont play them for a few months and then you play them exclusively for a month and forget about them for a little while again. but cities skylines is very good
