I see only the bits that I want to see, and ignore the rest.

Having bought the first two and really never played them, I have no choice but to buy this one as well.  :P

I look forward to getting the Complete/Ultimate Edition in ten years, once they have announced CK4.

Lol. Yeah probably. Will finally start to play Crusader Kings 2 first!

I finally started playing CK2 again the last couple days.  It's fascinating stuff, but I freely admit I wouldn't mind a tutorial that completely held my hand through the first couple years.  Talk about your steep learning curves (and this is supposed to be one of Paradox's more accessible games?!)...  :-\

Actually, i think it's one of the most complex games, at least, that's what i remember from playing the first one. I would say Europa Universalis 2 and Stellaris are the most accessible. I have a lot of respect for Crusader Kings 2 and will take the time to learn.

I agree Stellaris is probably Paradox's most accessible game (at least of those produced in-house).  I do think the changes in the 2.2 update needlessly increased the learning curve, but it remains relatively easier to get into. 

I can't comment on EU2, as I don't own it.  I do own EU4, however, and some day I plan to tackle that one (although at the rate I'm going, I'll probably be retired before I get around to doing so :P ).

This is one area where (based on preview stuff) they seem to have finally sunk some time and resources in CK3. I'm looking forward to that, because I never felt like I had a clue what I was doing in 2.

Incidentally:  For those interested, Paradox has just announced that CK3 will be released September 1st (2020).  That's sooner than I was expecting.
