Crusader Kings III: Royal Edition
 – 

New and different, for Paradox

Without a doubt, CK3 is more approachable than any previous PDS game. Yet it still is as fun and entertaining as its predecessor.
I'm mostly missing some tools (like specific map modes) or individual cultural details, which certainly will follow with further expansions.

Stellaris: Federations
 – 

Good, if ...

Federations were pretty sad affair, pre-DLC. Now you have more choices and options, though I still prefer to stay out of the limitations federations enforce.

Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance
 – 

Not all bad, but not essential

Some elements are a joke, espionage for example. It's a very rudimentary concept, not adding anything to enrich your game experience or bring you joy.

Some other stuff makes them a greater challenge, which is nice but no must have.
Summed up: Could have been more and better.

Hearts of Iron IV: Radio Pack
 – 

Flavor for your ears

Not really a necessary addition, there are mods offering more variety.

Hearts of Iron IV: Axis Armor Pack
 – 

Okay-ish

It's nice to see familiar historic tanks, but it really isn't making the game a better experience at all. Purely optional.

Stellaris: Plantoids Species Pack
 – 

Optional but worth it

It's one of these cosmetical expansions, but if you are also tired of seeing the very same races too often, this will help a little.

Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor
 – 

Very nice addition to the Balkans

This made playing these nations a lot more fun, so it's a must have if you like the challenge they offer.
Feels incomplete though, because they left out some nations.

Hearts of Iron IV: Together for Victory
 – 

Commenwealth Essential

If you want your empire to fight efficiently, this expansion offers some essential tools. Should have been in the base game anyway though.

Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger
 – 

Must have for Asia, good for others

You obviously can't miss out on this if you love playing Japan or China.
Traits and skills for Generals can be a decisive factor in war for all nations.

Stellaris: MegaCorp
 – 

Essential for Economists

Completely rethinks how building, economy and trader function in Stellaris. It's far from perfect but you wouldn't want to miss it.

Europa Universalis IV: Common Sense
 – 

Necessary

Some of the features are somewhat outdated or pale in comparison to newer features, but some are still essential. I recommend buying.

Crusader Kings II: Horse Lords Content Pack
 – 

Okay-ish

Not a must and not the best or most used unit sprites, but some diversity is always nice.

Crusader Kings II: Way of Life
 – 

Life saver

What this DLC adds to the game is almost too powerful. It unlocks abilities for your characters, if you follow specific ways of life. Murdering becomes so much easier when you are a professional spy!

Crusader Kings II: Horse Lords
 – 

Essential for nomads

It finally makes the hordes a unique experience worth playing. So if you are interested in that kind of variety, grab this expansion.

Crusader Kings II: Conclave Content Pack
 – 

Neat but not necessary

You might register the little differences this pack provides at first, but after some few hours it becomes pretty much irrelevant. Only for enthusiasts.

Airport Madness 3D: Volume 2
 – 

Pass

Bad graphics, too simple gameplay. There is no reason why you'd want to buy this game. I suggest to buy Mini Metro instead.

Crusader Kings II: Conclave
 – 

Vassals buff

A not existential but very recommended expansion. The council enriches the gameplay within your empire in multiple ways. It allows your vassals to compete for power but it also gives you a better option to shape and organize your realm. So even if you are big enough not to worry about external enemies, the internal competition keeps the campaign entertaining.
