Summary: The entire collection is on Steam. If you like grand strategy, this is for you. The original Crusader Kings is a bit dated, but it seems to work on Windows 7. The resolution needs to be modified either from the config file, or the launch parameters. Crusader Kings II is great and there are a large amount of things like technology trees, diplomacy, intrigue and birth rights to consider.

Summary: I have never liked this type of games. In this you control a dynasty and just try to survive to the end... or what the hell! Take over the known world! Interface is decent and involves a lot of clicking and patience, multiplayer works and is a ton of fun! Well worth the money.
Summary: Apparently, my lunatic ruler has mistaken his maid for a giant gopher, appointed his horse as chancellor, rammed Cthulhu in a longboat, declared the wearing of pants illegal (and later made turnips the kingdom currency). Oh, and I sacked Rome repeatedly and carried back tons of loot and prisoners for human sacrifice. What more do you need in a game? Protip: Use the ruler designer to start with a lunatic/possessed character for the best gameplay experience!
Summary: Guess what... all the key is steam and I have attached it all in my steam library easily. No need to download it from "Amazon", just copy the "Product Code" and paste it into the "Steam Library". Warning: For strategy gamer only.
Summary: This is a game with great detail and variety. You can build and Empire, but the key is managing you dynasty. Doesn't matter if you are king or emperor, you need qualified heirs from your dynasty or you are looking at possible game over. This is a game about people . . .er . . . fake people and relationships. I have spent hours managing relations with my nobles and plotting and planning the marriages of the children of my dynasty.
Summary: Great game for strategy lovers. Difficulty is high to medium depending on your expertise. Came with all the DLC except the latest expansion. Who cares if you're just getting into the game play what you got, and decide if you need another expo as you go. Some great history lessons can be learned too about this particular era.
