If I was to judge my favorite game by the number of hours I have spent playing it, then the winner would easily be Crusader Kings 2. Unfortunately, if I am not having a petty revenge scheme against some noble who has wronged me or am at war... then I am bored. Bored and 100% having the seduction focus.

Emperor Benoît the Handsome of France fathered over 100 children. He had the advantage of successfully finding immortality though, so, you know... he had time to kill. When one of his wives took a lover mere months after marrying him I was at first outraged, and then... then I saw that I had indeed raised at least one son in my own image. I was so proud, you guys, I didn't even imprison either of them.

Ah crusader Kings II. I have have to admit after the intial rush of doing things like restoring the roman empire, the Persian empire complete with restoring the Zoroastrian priesthood and building the third temple I found smaller roles to be enjoyable.

Nothing quite like a patrician feud for some good old fun and references and playing a minor king or a duke pretty much insures you often as not under threat without being so powerful to laugh off threats...

Though somethimes the game would do things like getting the demonspawn event as a doge but having the demonspawn be female which was hmm interesting giving patrician inheritance laws.

Ah, CKII...

Because sometimes you just want to know what it feels like to conquer the world, raise a family, and watch that family run it into the ground in a fit of scheming and depravity.

Sounds *Awesome*

@zenat: I've been thinking of picking this one up next time it's on sale on Steam.

Is it hard to do this one right? Because some of the things I've read about how complicated the plots get, and how *anyone* can stab you in the back, make it sound *really* hard to keep your PC alive let alone get anything done.

It's these kinds of stories that make CKII just such an excellent game.

In my current random world playthrough I somehow managed to get several interested courtiers. Took them both as lovers before turning them into concubines.
Turns out they were mother and daughter. Had children with both as well.

Wish I could play it, but aside from stellaris paradox games don't agree with me. However I would warn you if what I know about the length of these games is true you might want to upload some of the files to a cloud.

It was a first game I wanted to buy with all dlc. Then I looked at price tag.

@Aline1: Honestly, I wish I had the patience to go for the achievements, but I always end up cheating because damnit, I need mercenaries right now!
But the feuds... mmm, the feuds... I had a session where I pettily executed every prince of Poland I captured, after one Polish king killed my very promising heir in battle. This went on for generations. Until there was no Poland left. Ahem... No demonspawn yet though. I mean. Other than the usual overly ambitious and frankly incompetent son...

@Broseidon: And sometimes you get a little bit too possessive of the claims to your land and end up intermarrying distant cousins a few too many times and suddenly your grand family tree is only bearing inbred fruit... but at least no one can take Scotland from you on legal grounds?

@riverdaleswhiteflash: Aw man, it's a great game, but A LOT of DLCs which gets real expensive. And it's difficult to get into, and I found the tutorial unhelpful, but it such a fun game once you get a hang of it. You just got to run a couple of families into the grave first.

But don't worry. Your goal isn't to keep your PC alive. It's to keep the family alive. This might be why I keep taking the seduction focus and having 20 kids all the time .... who then try to murder each other... it is, perhaps, not the best strategy...

@Deonis: One of my first... indiscretions... was as a Dutch ruler, with my one and only subject's wife. He found out and didn't mind, like at all. We were great friends. I made him my chancellor and she had my bastard child and... honestly, looking back it must have been a bug but he was a great pal. And a pretty good chancellor too.

@wildmageguy: Aww, that's unfortunate. But don't worry, I've got multiple external harddrives...

@mamiser: Hoooo boy, yeah... get them on a sale, not otherwise. And only pick the DLCs you think will be fun. I don't bother with music or army packs myself.
