Christ, if I knew there were so many well written AARs, and voiced, I would buy all the food and water I needed and stay in my house reading only AARs. From all the games.Wow, this is a most welcome and surprising event. I am very grateful for receiving this awAARd again - it's an honor! I would never have envisioned this when I first began commenting in AARland, but I am most grateful for the recognition. Thank you @Alex Borhild for the nomination, thank you all for the gratulations. You guys feel like a family - some closer, some further down the family tree. But I feel like home among you all!
When it comes to what AARs I follow, those are numberous. I cannot possibly mention them all, nor give them all the recongnition they deserve. I will mention but a few here though, examples of pieces well worth your time. I will try to keep the mentions more or less equally divided between the games.
First and second up, @coz1 's excellent The Rightful King and his followup, now ongoing The Bold Prince. Better writing is seldom seen.
Then I'd like to mention @stnylan 's n00b piece on Victoria II; A VictoriAARn Education - Learning Victoria II with Sweden. While the authAAR is not a n00b in these parts, his playing this game is. And it's a wonder to follow.
With CK2 and Victoria II done, it's time to head to HoI4 (boy did I wish I had all the time in the world to mention all the great AARs going on at these boards!). Here I will mention first a written piece, @GDSPathe1 's Divided We Fall A USA Kasierreich AAR, a great piece on my favourite mod - Kaiserreich. But I also feel that HoI4's forum needs a recognition of a rather new kind of AAR. The YouTube Let's Play. I am most fond of the written AARs, I must admit. But there is much good reporting done in video form too, and I feel @SamEskenazi 's Kaiserreich Austria | Habsburg Return! is worthy a mention.
In Stellaris' subforum I will bring forward an AAR that have been rebooted twice now, but the writing and story keeps sending me back. I present you @hjarg 's Even Better Hautevilles, a story on the world led by the CK2 de Hauteville family.
Kaiserreich and Stellaris AARs, and to a slighly lesser degree CK2 is where my main reading time is done, I have to confess. But EU4 has one major story going on, which has so big chapters I almost choke p), but which are most entertaining to read. It reads like a real history book most often. I present you @JerseyGiants88 's Italian Ambitions - A Florence AAR
And with that I leave you to read, comment, write and be merry, and I will return with a new nomination in a week's time.

Thanks a lot! Yeah, I guess I use an ungodly amount of time in here, eh?
Nikolai has been supporting my AARs and others for what seems forever now!
Congratulations, Nikolai, and thank you!
Eh, yeah. Sixteen years. Scary how time have fled.That's because it has been years Sixteen glorious years.
