It's the game I've stuck with the longest and I can never get tired of it, especially when you "properly" play it, that meaning, roleplaying and doing the things your character would do based on his traits and abilities rather than meta-gaming. It makes it much more difficult but provides you a better experience, at least imo.
That is how I tend to play the game as well. It really draws you into the session, and it makes it a hundred times more challenging.
Personally, I'd go with EU3+expansions just because it's a completed game and I doubt they'll be releasing any further expansion packs. Victoria 2 will be a gem in time though. Whatever you do though, avoid HOI3!
I never did play Hearts of Iron III
, but as of late I have been considering giving it a try. What is wrong with it? Perhaps I should abstain, if it is somehow defective. As for Victoria 2
, I am holding off on trying it until they patch it up good. I think I might also wait for a mod which introduces timed, historical events. I am quite fond of them in older Paradox titles. Rather than purging such events, they should have made two different main scenarios, one historical and one random. Still, I am sure that the community will cater to my cravings soon enough.
I am playing Victoria: Revolutions as Japan.
I'm playing Vicky 2 with Mexico, doing the same thing that you're doing with Japan. Taking over the US. Conquered Texas(i start with a war against them), UPCA(guatemala and honduras) and currently i'm besieging Chicago with my elite Mexican troops.
Also, I'm playing Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude and GTA IV. Oh and OpenTTD at work.
Wow, nice going. I never did play as Mexico, but I imagine that it must be quite tricky to fight the United States as them. If you are already at Chicago, you must have given the Yanks a hard beating.
Did you use allies to take them on? In my game, I just got the United Kingdom to join me in my assault. I am hoping that the Americans will divert their attention to Canada, so that I can conquer a lot of territory quickly, as to decimate their industrial output. It is 1910 and they have started to pump out troops and ships like crazy.

I had one of those when I watched Kung-Fu Panda.
Did you ever play Bioshock
, by the way? It is a little dated now, but the graphics are good, the atmosphere is splendid and the story is mighty compelling. I am normally not a fan of modern action games, but it stood out.
