CK2 is the only one of their games that has grabbed me.
You might want to try EU4 then. I've noticed a pattern in my friends, that once Paradox has finally nailed the engine for a certain player's standards, that player tends to like all new games (EU, Hearts of Iron, Crusader Kings). Seen it over and over.

Just a thought. You may have a timesink in the future and not even know it!

Plus you're already over the learning curve for ALL of the games once you've learned just one, which is what stops many people from trying.
