HOI3 is really good. I suggest playing Germany, it's not as daunting as it sounds, just make sure to secure goo allies, Italy, Hungary (are about the only useful allies you usually get, yes I'm looking at you useless Portugal..), Brazil, Japan and a few others. If you use spies correctly to change the government type and influence right from the start you can even get the USA to become a Facist nation and join you. Oh, but don't count of the Japs to actually help you against the USA if you end up fighting them, they're a pretty weak nation. And watch out for the Soviets, they'll stab you while your back is turned.
And tip; learn how the supply system works before playing.

You don't have as much freedom in HOI3 as you do in EU, CK or Vicky. But considering its time period that's to be expected.

Here's a Germany pic from Vicky2 that I found in my SS folder.
Looking good for Germany (me) going into WW1.

Pft, looks like you went Austria -> Germany(which was an actual argument of should ALL areas be controlled that have German-speaking populations, or just the minimum amount, what surrounds Prussia and the German Confederation?)
Nope.

Prussia, attack Austria off the bat, take Bohemia and the other large region next to it.
Attack France for the two regions you need to form Germany.
Attack Austria again, this time conqueror all her regions and leave them conquered until Austria falls out of Great Power status, add "add to sphere" war goal, end war with Austria added to your sphere. Because Austria is now in your sphere, to form Germany you must either have the required regions in your control or in your sphere and so now you can form Germany. And now when you form Germany all of Austria becomes under your control.
Takes 4 wars total (the fourth being with Denmark for Holstein) and a lot of influencing.

From there you can conqueror Belgium, Netherlands, more of France, Switzerland, Denmark, Russia, Ottomans, Italian states, etc...

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.
