Never played this series; how does it compare to Europa Universalis?

From what I've heard Civ is easier to get into but not as deep. I've never played a Paradox game but I'm interested in Stellaris that they just released.

Totally different genre. Civ is more like a board game than a simulation. You can have tribal spearmen and medieval knights fight tanks and bomber jets

EUIV is getting unfortunately closer down that path though imo. EUIII, Victoria II, HOI III, and Crusader Kings II are what I'd recommend

I know a guy who hasn't played any video games for years except Victoria 2

Never played EU but I started playing Civ 5 around the same time as Crusader Kings 2 (same developer as EU). While I like the depth and scope better on CK2, Civ 5 is just so much easier to get into altogether and more addictive. I started playing both about 7-8 months ago and have twice as many hours in Civ 5 than I do in CK2, even though I would probably rate CK2 higher.

Also id add more entertaining than the Europa Universalis series.

Civ is very easy to learn. Even there, it's very in-depth.

I've played a few of these. I played the original for hours on end; time just flies.
