So I've been playing alot of Civ IV lately. I've always 4x games and the Fall From Heaven 2 mod in particular. But lately I've been getting bullied in school for playing these because all the cool kids are playing hardcore political sims like Victoria and Europa Univarlis. As the girls flushed my head in the toilet again I wondered where would I start in a market that has become so surprisingly crowded with seemingly half of Paradox games fitting the description.
So any suggestions for a decent gateway political sim which does all the deep simulation and so on but still manages to be user friendly or at least includes a useful tutorial.
