For a long time I've had an interest in hands-off Europa Universalis Games. I enjoyed seeing how the world would change without any interference from the player, though in almost every instance I couldn't resist changing something. Recently I've starting an AAR based around the concept of a hands-off game, though its taking place in an aged version of the game (In Nomine). Now a few months, to a year ago, I believe there may have been a similar topic but I'm not one for reviving long dead topics unless they are truly important. I'm interested in seeing how many other people enjoy hands-off games or if anyone wants to share their any stories (or AARs) they have about some of their games. Maps are always welcome.
Here's one that I did with Cyprus:
So what do you think about hands-off games and what value do you think they have to a game like Europa Universalis and the player? Who knows, maybe in the future EU games will have an 'autorun'/'autoplay' option.
