Cities: Skylines - After Dark
 – 

Good times day and night

I enjoyed my time with Cities Skylines though I must say that most of my hours playing were with a deactivated day and night cycle to better see what I am doing. The nights are a nice gimmick to watch your cities and your zoning from another perspective. I also feel that it should have been a part of the base game but having a lot of fun with the game, I can come around paying a few extra bucks here and there.

Cities: Skylines - Green Cities
 – 

Great new policies and skins

Green Cities offers some great new policies for your cities and, most of all, you gett new skins for your buildings.
You get new tools to deal with pollution and thus more complexity to the gameplay. Even though getting to know all these DLCs seems a bit tedious, I recommend buying all the major ones.

Cities: Skylines - Industries Plus
 – 

It's the economy, stupid!

Industries adds a ton of complexity to the game by letting you handle multiple supply chains to not only further your cities happiness but also making a buck or two on the side.

Cities: Skylines - Mass Transit
 – 

A traffic jam makes neither for good music nor marmelade

Another comment suggested that transit should differentiate between tourist, leisure or other forms of transit and I think this would be the cherry on top!
I love the new options for transportation with this DLC and it provides the means necessary to get a grip on those nasty traffic jams.

Cities: Skylines - Parklife Plus
 – 

Good addition when on sale

I have to admit that I did not care much for the parks & recreation stuff in the game. However, it's a nice addition for the base game when you can get it for the WinGameStore pricing.

Cities: Skylines - Snowfall
 – 

Let's plow some snow

A good but not an outstanding addition to the game. Certain maps now offer snow and let you build your personal winter wonderland towns.
While playing in other climates, I believe you won't even notice it's there.

Dead Cells: The Bad Seed
 – 

Just awesome, plain and simple!

What's not to love with Dead Cells. The developers are still constantly expanding and tweaking the game to perfection and the Bad Seed DLC is not just a great expansion but also a good way to say thank you for this level of engagement.

I was a little worried at first that the game might be brutally difficult but since release the devs implemented a system that lets you choose your preferred difficulty and then progress nicely through the ranks.

Sid Meier's Civilization® VI: Digital Deluxe Edition
 – 

New comic graphics, so what?!

This game is getting a lot of criticism for its portrayal of the faction leaders with comic style graphics. While older Civilization titles used a more "realistic" art style to suggest some sense of political gravitas to your own leadership activities, Civ VI went full on gamey. And I got to say, why not? Firstly this new artstyle does not retract from earlier games. You can still play Civ V and it is awesome. And secondly, it's kind of nice!

The biggest development in Civ VI is imo the tile based city growth. This way Civ VI really feels different from its predecessors and thus like a game in it's own right. I don*t think that it is somehow better or worse than the old city building approach, but it sure is breathing some fresh air into the franchise.

I do recommend, giving it a shot!

Cities: Skylines Deluxe Edition
 – 

Lovely title

I bought this title a while ago and didn't touch it at first. Recently some youtube videos caught my eye and brought me back to it. People are building the most beautiful land- and cityscapes using this game. The leven of detail is absolutely amazing. And the contributions of the modding community are elevating this game to an even higher level.

I can't recommend it enough!
