Total War™: SHOGUN 2 - Blood Pack
 – 

IT WORKS IN UNITED STATES

Just to clarify, this works in the US (bigger battles may lag some more when zoomed in). Once installed from steam, ZERO problems.

As for what it adds, for less than a dollar on sale it adds alot of animations and details to zoomed in battles. Yea, probably should have been included in base game, but probably some issues with ratings. Got it on sale for $.54 and completely happy about it. A lot more satisfying to watch battles now.

**Also applies to Fall of the Samurai too as option to include blood pack is from main overall menu**

XCOM® 2 Collection
 – 

One of (Maybe the best) Turn based strategies out there

Loved XCOM EW, this takes it from the groundfloor and throws so much at you. The collection (on sale) is a no brainer. War of the chosen adds as much as EW did for XCOM vanilla.

If you haven't played before, XCOM is known for its no apologies difficulty. Be prepared to lose soldiers, especially at the beginning. But its so rewarding when you start winning and fighting back.

Cities: Skylines After Dark
 – 

Adds a whole new side to Cities

Especially on sale, really adds quite a bit to the game as it opens up a whole new side of things at night.

Total War™: SHOGUN 2 Collection
 – 

One of the best strategy and total war games out there

If you are a fan of Total War, this is a no brainer. They go back to their roots and expand greatly. This was the 'old' total war before Rome 2 changed things with provinces. So depending if you liked the changes or not (or were indifferent like me) it can be refreshing to go back.

Stellaris
 – 

Paradox does it again

Huge HOI4 fan that was looking for something different....and Paradox delivered. Get on sale because you'll want a few (or all DLC) but growing your galactic empire will become addictive.

Stellaris: Utopia
 – 

Must have DLC

This and Apocolypse are widely regarded as must have DLC. Get on sale if you can, no-brainer.

Stellaris: Apocalypse
 – 

Much needed war updates/upgrades

This and Utopia are widely regarded as must have DLC. Get on sale if you can, no-brainer. This really adds a bunch of new features to the war side of things (my favorite). Super weapons and structures.

Stellaris: Leviathans Story Pack
 – 

Really adds some filler to early and mid game

Almost a must have DLC, if on sale get it. Adds new 'creatures' that change things up and helps fill in some of the empty space. Well worth it

Cities: Skylines
 – 

New king in city building

Sim City has been dethroned by Paradox. They bring their usual in-depth quality to city building and it is great. With that said, as always with Paradox, there is substantial DLC that needs to be considered when you plunge into a new series.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition
 – 

Turn and squad based masterpiece

Get with the expansion Enemy within (same game/story, drastically changes the journey).

XCOM: Enemy Within
 – 

Challenging turn based masterpiece

Especially on sale (can be very deep sometimes) this game really brings out some white knuckle moments. Tutorial is pretty quick and shows you what you need to know, wiki the rest. Squad and turn based fans this is a no-brainer.

Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor
 – 

Like most say, buy on sale.

I like the new focuses for smaller countries. New facist puppet systems are interesting too.

Hearts of Iron IV: Together for Victory
 – 

Buy on sale

I wasn't super interested in the commonwealth focuses, but the new puppet systems really do change some things. Especially the manpower option if you are playing a smaller country.

Mount & Blade: Warband
 – 

Put in over 100 hours

Love this game the expansion, really allows you to build a character from nothing and make him rule over England!

Hearts of Iron IV: Colonel Edition
 – 

Obsessed with this game

100's of hours worth of content, continually gets patches and updates from Devs. Can control almost any country leading up to and through WW2. Grand strategy, especially this era, isn't done any better. NO brainer pick up, especially if it is on any kind of sale (can find it 50%-75% off sometimes).

Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger
 – 

Great DLC, especially on sale

Really adds to the game, especially if you want to play in Asia or have alt-history for Japan and Germany (BRING BACK THE KEISER!!). Easy purchase if you want to try a very, very different way of playing Germany and disposing hitler.

Mount & Blade: Warband - Viking Conquest Reforged Edition
 – 

Obsessed with this game

Absolutely amazing open-world (or in VC story-driven, THEN open world) strategy that doesn't have a lot of competition.

Only question is, through steam, it has a higher/newer version than the one I have on Mac Game Store? The versions aren't the same and not sure how to update the one here?

Company of Heroes 2: Master Collection
 – 

Same thing is sometimes a great thing

I thoroughly enjoyed the first CoH and this is bigger, longer and from the 'other' side on the eastern front. The additional map packs are extremely challenging as well and open up the use of multiple countries. Absolutely worth the price, especially if you catch it on a sale. No brainer
