Hey everyone. I purchased HoI2 and EUIII in the recent Paradox sale with no intent on playing them until I get a few games out of my backlog. One of those games in my backlog is Shogun 2. Shogun 2 is my second Total War game but the first one that I've gotten myself invested in (I liked Empire but it didn't absorb me). So it seems to me that the Total War series and Paradox's Grand Strategy game have a fair bit in common (I could be wrong though) but I've also heard Paradox's games can be dauntingly complicated. So I'm wondering, if I become well versed with games like Total War, how much will the learning curve (if at all) will be reduced? Also, I'm kind of curious to know what you think the most complex (but still manageable) strategy game is. Thanks!
