No, I don't think you can do that at all.

SOME sequels, sure, but there are many developers making a serious effort to change fundamentals.

Paradox are not among them.

Personally, after learning about them in Rome Universalis, I fell in love with Paradox strategy games. I consider EU3 my favorite game of all time (and I'm an RPG gamer primarily), and Crusader Kings 2 is really awesome too. Eventually after playing 200+ hours of each, all you want is the same game with some different rules and settings, so you can plunge 200 more hours trying different countries and goals.
Nothing wrong with that - and good for you.

But if you're trying to tell me you're not playing essentially the same game in a slightly new dressing (think EA Sports titles) - then I'm not convinced
