The 24 Games of Christmas! Day #17: Europa Universalis IV

2 mins read
The tree is up, the lights are on, the stockings are over the fireplace and everyone’s getting into the eggnog. It’s Christmas and it’s the best time of year.

Nothing beats Christmas; it’s the time for fun and play, for family and friends. It’s the chance to get away from work and reset the batteries. And, of course, it’s the perfect time to knock off some of those games that you just haven’t been able to get around to.

As is tradition for Digitally Downloaded we’re going to count down the 24 games of Christmas – one a day for each day from December 1 through to December 24. The fun, the silly and the crazy, these games have been custom picked by the DDNet editorial team to give you plenty of ideas for stocking fillers, games to play with family and friends on Christmas Eve, or games you should use the extra time over the holiday to get stuck into.

 The 24 Games Of Christmas
Day #17: Europa Universalis IV

(Read our review here)

I was tempted not to include this on the list. After all, we at Digitally Downloaded firmly believe that Christmas is a time for family and a chance to get away from what we do for the rest of the year, but if you start playing EUIV you might miss Christmas entirely – it’s that addictive.

But in the end I could resist. EUIV deserves to be remembered as one of the finest strategy games ever made. It’s deep, complex, and incredibly replayable. It’s a game that suits most kinds of strategy gamers too – if you would prefer to play defensive or simply engage in peaceful expansion, then you can.

If you haven’t already got this game, then please do so, but also, please don’t forget Christmas. Your loved ones will hate us, and we can’t have that.
