How come you have a dilemma and not trilemma?
You mentioned just on a side note well and I have to study too. I do not want to sound like your father
but I would suggest you to concentrate your head on that game. It is much more important and worth for your life, trust me.
As of dilemma and if I can imagine myself studied again
and than find time to play one of two mentioned games, I would pick CivBE
, no doubt.
: Many years ago I played game that I liked a lot CK. I could not wait for CK2 that finally was realised. First impression was great. And than they start to change the game, and to change it and to change and
it is not CK any more but some game about pagans Aztecs, Hindus and other bs. It might be a good game about something else or for somebody else but it is not for me anymore. So I do not want to spend any moment any more to get stressed about something I would not like not EU4 either or anything from PI at all. I am not sure if it is forever though, because
..Something similar happened to me after CivIII and big disappointment for CivIV that looked good somewhat at the beginning and then worst and worst, to unplayable for me. I stepped back from any future iteration of civ or anything Firaxis. I did not buy CiV, even though my friends and cousins (who all were hooked on the serial by me, btw) tried to explain me that the game is way better than IV and that I should try it, my trust was ruined so I was refusing, until one afternoon I got nothing to do (I finished my studies long time ago) so I decided to give it a try (it was just before G&K expansion announcement, or so) and fast forward 2500+ hours of play latter I am so impatient about BE that any other game cannot be competition to it.
However, it is all about you, and what you like.
And I will take a question more rhetorical with small dose of flame who makes better game swedes or americans
And I am pretty sure youre choosing option C: Studies
