Worth it

Ads a lot of immersive content to the game. 100% worth it on sale.

Stellaris: MegaCorp
 – 

Rushed for Christmas sales

This expansion was released in a pathetic state. Of note, the AI became even worse than it was before, and, for example, to this day (2021) there is still no AI implementation for the ecumenopolis. Modders have done it, but PDX can't afford the days work required to implement AI for a key feature in this DLC.
Released just in time for Christmas, its rather clear where PDX's priorities laid.

The patch released alongside it was extremelly buggy at launch and, though the economic rework was quite good, its horrid performance made mid-late game pretty much unplayable at the time.

Europa Universalis IV: Common Sense
 – 

Scummy

Back when this was released the game became unplayable without purchasing this thing. Development was introduced as an important core mechanic to the game, but was only unlocked by buying this. Very scummy.

IIRC in 2020 development unlock was finally moved into the base game. But yeah, "common sense is not so common".

Robin Hood: Country Heroes
 – 

Not too challenging, but still fun game to play

If you like collecting supplies, you'll like this game. Lots of running around, building and picking up stuff. However, for more "seasoned" time management game players, this game may be a bit boring. There are 2 difficulty levels to play at: untimed and normal. If you're familiar with these games, there's not much of a challenge. In normal mode, I found it almost impossible to NOT get 3 stars on all levels, as the timer seems to stop or slow down before going from 3 to 2 stars. And since there is no "difficult" game mode, that's it. But that said, I still enjoyed playing it (and have played it several times).

The Treasures of Mystery Island: The Ghost Ship

Had the first game: The Treasures of Mystery Island-The Gates of Fate, so this one was a must download. It was well worth the download.

Hearts of Iron IV: Allied Speeches Pack
 – 

A bit pricy, but adds good content

There's a similar mod adding speeches as well, so I would suggest getting this at a discount.

Hearts of Iron IV: Battle for the Bosporus
 –

Queen's Garden 4 - Sakura Season
 – 

Relaxing Match Game

This is a great relaxing match game. Not very hard, but enough variety in the puzzles to keep me engaged. And I enjoy designing different gardens with the earned points. Nice relaxing soundtrack as well.

Stellaris: Federations
 – 

Adds a lot of much needed depth!

This dlc really fleshes out the federations in the base game. If you don't use federations in the base game then its possible that you don't need this dlc, otherwise get it.

Cities: Skylines - Industries
 – 

Fleshes industries

This dlc adds life to the industries in your city. You can now build beyond just the basic generic industry, ranging from agriculture to lumber. Adds roads and edicts aswell.

Stellaris: Ancient Relics Story Pack
 – 

Adds a lot of depth to the start of the game.

This game helps flesh out the early game by adding dig sites that each have their own little plot lines. You get bonuses from completing these dig sites. Worth it if you find the early game lackluster.

Cities: Skylines - Green Cities
 – 

Doesn't offer too necessary content.

Most players can get by without having this dlc. The best features are the clean water dumps but those are not by any means necessary for your city. Features like the recycling plant are nice but hardly necessary. Overall not a terrible dlc but make sure to get it on sale.

Reflections of Life: Utopia Collector's Edition
 – 

Doesn't work well

Tried to play the demo version and it won't load full screen. It loads at quarter sized in the lower left corner. Too small to play. So I certainly won't invest any money in it. All other games I have from the same company work very well and play full screen, so it's not my computer.

Whispers of a Machine
 – 

Good

Short but a good game. Don't expect something unbelievable, but it makes you think about some concepts such as life, death, technology and humanity.

Awesome! Really good. Love it! :)
Graphics could be better but it doesn't take away from the very enjoyable gameplay.
