Europa Universalis IV: Wealth of Nations
 – 

Trade DLC - Pretty Important

This is really a core mechanic of the game, and it's a lot less interesting without this. If you need to buy a bunch of DLC's at once wait for a sale, but this is one you won't want to pass up.

Europa Universalis IV: Res Publica
 – 

As the name implies, it's all about Republics!

If you want fleshed out mechanics for merchant republics, then this is a must-have. Otherwise you can skip it. Although I will say, I enjoyed playing as the Netherlands a great deal, so I probably got value for this DLC on that single playthrough.

Europa Universalis IV: Mare Nostrum
 – 

Get this one on Discount

Has some cool features in it, but none of them are groundbreaking. Mostly quality of life stuff. It's nice to have, but you can absolutely enjoy EU4 without this one.

Europa Universalis IV: El Dorado
 – 

Nation Designer? Yes please.

For me, this is a top 5 EU4 DLC no question - but that's because I like playing around with custom nations and randomized new world setups. Even if you don't care about that, it adds events for certain new world playthroughs - I got good value out of this during a fun Inca run.

Europa Universalis IV: Art of War
 – 

Top 5 DLC for sure

The ability to give orders to allied armies alone is worth it, lots of other great stuff here to justify the purchase.

Company of Heroes 2
 – 

Fun game, but not for everyone

This game has well-designed, but I personally prefer my RTS games to have a base-building feature. But if you don't enjoy that aspect, CoH2 has solid warfare design and it might be right up your alley.

Satellite Reign
 – 

Indie Cyberpunk Squad Game

Cool game, unfortunately I've had some problems playing it in online coop with friends, but the core game in singleplayer is pretty fun regardless. Definitely pick it up on a discount though, as it's steep at 30.

Sid Meier's Civilization® VI
 – 

Fun Game, but needs Expansions to be Fun

Civ 6 got off to a rough launch, but the underlying gameplay is still pretty fun. That being said, expansions are crucial to making this game shine, so you should probably bear that in mind before taking the plunge.

Stellaris: MegaCorp
 – 

Grab on a discount, but it's pretty cool!

Has some interesting new features, like a galactic slave market that definitely adds a dystopic sci-fi feel to it. Solid DLC but not at sticker price.

Hard West
 – 

Poor Man's X-Com gameplay in Old West

If you really love X-Com style games, get this when it goes on a sale. Otherwise, this probably isn't the game for you.
