One of the best games I've ever played. It looks like a historical strategy game: a large real-world map to play on, countries to control, lands to conquer, etc. But don't be fooled. It is actually a “life simulation game". You have a country (or part of it), but what you really play is a dynasty, or family.
You rule, you fight, you want to see the death of your regent, you kill, you murder, you have parties, you make friends, you meditate, you do business, you love your wife, or make wild loves with your lovers, you have enemies, you are supported by your vessels, you travel around the world, you educate your children, you become the king, you are defeated on the battlefield, you lose your titles, you are nobody again, you are old, you die, you leave nothing but chaos to your sons.
You go over the rises and falls of the family, interact with everyone around, and play your particular part in everyone's own story. There are tens of thousands characters in the virtually living world, everyone with his or her own life being written. Sadly you can never have sufficient energy to learn every unique story!
This is one of the best games I've ever played, definitely top 5. It depicts every shining and awkward, elegant and wretched moment of a normal medieval noble guy.
Those who give only 11/10, you guys are so mean.
