If you haven't played the total war series yet your missing out on life. This has stolen over 1000 hours of my life. Such an amazing game plus you learn countries history locations
My most favorite game out of all of these is Medieval 2 total war something about medieval times is mesmerizing. Followed by Shogun 2.
Avoid playing empire or napoleon first it will be give you headaches at first, it's not that optimized.
I too have spent hundreds of hours on the series but I find the original titles (Shogun, Rome) far more entertaining than their modern versions (Shogun 2). As polished as they might be the gameplay is just no fun after a while as there are many exploits still haunting the series (trade and diplomacy being worst) and AI is just no match even on the hardest setting. Feels like they're sticking a brand new layer of makeup on the same old whore every time, and she has gotten much older underneath.
If you want to learn about historic border changes, buy a historical atlas. Those maps are far more accurate, rich, and it can be fun to see states come and go in a matter of pages. If you have good visual memory, you'll have all that in your head in tens, not hundreds of hours, and then you can play TW and point out all the mistakes. Oh what fun.
