Crusader Kings III
 – 

Ck2 with cadet branches

Usually paradox sequels take awhile to be worth your time and money. Not this one. This one comes out at launch ready to play and already an improvement upon it's prior version due to one simple reason: Cadet branches. These off shoots of your dynasty were sorely lacking in CK2 and are a welcome addition to the base game of CK3. Like all paradox games this one is a solid foundation that will be built upon for years to come.

Mount & Blade: Warband - Viking Conquest Reforged Edition
 – 

Immersive DLC Experience

I would not recommend this to a person new to the Mount and Blade series, but to veterans of the series and those looking to change the base game I couldn't recommend it more. It offers a difficult and engaging story experience set during the invasion of the great heathen army to england. Don't try to fight the railroad experience or you may end up with game breaking bugs.

Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger

Chinese Civil War

I did a playthrough as communist china with this DLC and it was infinitely more entertaining than in the base game. You are given more tools to utilize from your limited provinces to resist Japan and fight the Chinese civil war. The achievements added are fun to strive for. The new DLC mechanics are also utilized in many mods for HoI IV!

Crusader Kings II: Horse Lords

Hordes and More

The changes to horde mechanics aren't worth an entire DLC to me, but to anyone who enjoys playing on the steppe they are a great addition to the game.

Crusader Kings II: Conclave
 – 

Conclave Council

People who enjoy the shallow politics of the base game might not enjoy this. For those who want to turn a puddle into a slightly larger kiddie pool this DLC will make you take your council and councilors much more seriously. I prefer having to placate my powerful and overmighty vassals with a council position even when it isn't the optimum play from a Min-Max perspective.

Artifacts & Cathay

I'm ambivalent for the most part on the addition of China. The new artifact system though makes this DLC worth it.
