Age of Wonders: Planetfall
 – 

Great game

Subtle improvements over older Age of Wonders games, but full of personality some other 4X games don't have ... as well as the fun turn-based combat.

Stellaris: Apocalypse
 – 

Planet killer

More Stellaris, just souped-up and on some serious steroids. Adds new possibilities to what is already the best Civ in Space game.

Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger
 – 

The new Far East

Japan and China are biggest benefactors of this DLC, which is nice because China rarely gets much representation or respect in WWII games.

Hearts of Iron IV: Together for Victory
 – 

Fleshing out

Not essential, but good to have if you plan on sinking a few hundred hours into Hoi4.

Wreckfest
 – 

Took a long time to get here

But is more than worth it. Beautiful graphics, interesting races, and lots of user support/modding. Runs a bit rough on my Bootcamped system but Bugbear has continued to put work into improving it.

I am not a Monster: First Contact
 – 

Great game but needs players

A very strange turn-based game filled with campy humor and a 50's sci-fi pastiche, but well worth playing. Each game develops differently and no two rounds are the same. For its quite affordable price there is much to enjoy here. Warning: it is not easy and there are no crutches for a lack of awareness and a solid plan. Only significant drawback (my warning was really just praise for the game!) is there can be a lack of available players except for certain times of the day. {I purchased this title through Steam directly, not the WinGameStore, but am submitting a review here to increase the game's visibility}

Surviving Mars - First Colony Edition
 – 

Well balanced on harder difficulties

It's Mars, it's colonizers, it's catastrophes (at times) ... all it is missing is the DOOM marine! Loads of fun and being a Paradox title it will be well supported for much time to come.

Stellaris: Plantoids Species Pack
 – 

Fun cosmetic DLC

But really not essential to enjoy the game. If you can get it on sale it is fun to play with, but arguably worth the full price.

Ironclads 2: Caroline Islands War 1885
 – 

Engaging

But not overwhelming. Due to the paucity of naval wargames out there this is still worth picking up, if these type of games are in your wheelhouse.

Ironclads 2: Boshin War
 – 

Rarely represented era

That is perhaps a bit staid and wonky at times, but the opportunity to play a naval wargame - with no major bugs or problems - set here is one well worth taking. Recommended if you like these type games/board wargames.

Endless Legend - Shifters
 – 

Adds some depth

Worth picking up if you really enjoy Endless Legend, but not essential to enjoy the game.

Tyranny - Standard Edition
 – 

Best RPG this year

Fantastic game with great depth and reams of dialogue; it feels like an honest choose-your-own adventure game set in a great world and story. Certainly the best RPG I've played this year.

Militia
 – 

Excellent tactics game

For a very simple ruleset and equally simple boards, this game is a delight akin to chess with fewer moves and quicker play. The ladder method of "moving up" rewards each victory as hard-earned and makes losses truly hurt; highly recommended.

Mafia III Digital Deluxe Edition
 – 

Not really Mafia, but still loads of fun

It doesn't quite hold to the Mafia ideal, but there is no doubt the game is simply fun to play. New Bordeaux is very convincingly detailed (as a native New Orleanian is it jolly good to see how the created setting holds up vs the reality it is based upon) and the story is compelling; it takes some time to finds its groove but once it does it clicks very well. The only real downside is that the quests/activities are a bit repetitive, but the gunplay is snappy and story more than makes up for it.

Endless Space - Emperor Edition
 – 

Fun but tedious

Takes a l-o-n-g time to get into, but once you do it does have a good arc to gameplay.

Bionic Dues
 – 

Unique strategic rogue-lite

More fun than it looks, and far more than the sum of its parts. You can sink more playtime into it than you would think!

Tropico 5 – Complete Collection
 – 

Full set but not really necessary

The DLC is okay, but really doesn't add much to the game that you must play. Still, considering it is often for sale as the same price of just the base game it is worth it for the right price.

Crusader Kings II
 – 

Awesome kingdom-builder

Not simply a great game, one of the most complete and awesome games of all time. Some of the DLC is just alright, but when added all up they bring a wealth of new experiences to the game. This is a great way to start right here, though.

Kerbal Space Program
 – 

Tough but fair

As a physics title it is outstanding. As an engineering title it is outstanding. And as a management sim it is outstanding. But what is most outstanding is how these independent pieces unite to make a truly compelling and human game. Reach for the moon, and you may just discover a lot about yourself.

Endless Legend Classic Pack
 – 

Challenger to Civ

Great game and the expansions really add a lot to it. It is almost as good as the Civilization series!
