CK2 is a very broad game, but probably hardest to get into at this point with dozens of costly DLCs that all matter, and a horrific UI (outdated, claims etc are really confusing sections), especially now that CK3 is announced it prolly doesn't much pay off to get into CK2.

EU4 is a great PDS game with probably the most universal gameplay - it can be played entirely intuitively after logging in a certain amount of hours. Replayability is massive. The game just never got boring for me.

I've only recently started getting into HOI4. At first it seemed like an oversimplified game compared to the other titles, but this is hardly close to the truth. One HOI4 game is the shortest compared to the rest (it's a plus for me personally), and literally everything you do and don't do counts towards the end result. Microing huge frontlines can be harder in MP, but frontline management, logistics, focus trees, government changes, they are all very fun and have a sneaky dynamism to them. The more i play this game, the more i like it. Also, i found that DLC policy is much better compared to EU4 and CK2 - very little 'content' packs, as they are mostly integrated into base DLCs, which aren't many.
