PC Building Simulator
At the end of the day, PC Building Simulator is a solid experience, especially for those who may already have an affinity for PC hardware.
It's not a game for everyone, that much is obvious. But what it does, it actually does quite well.
PC Gaming Simulator is what we could call a “curiosity”. A strange game that mix some very generic elements with a strong fidelity regarding sim mechanics.

PC Building Simulator tries to capture the PC technician experience and mostly succeeds, but it's lacking some critical parts of the real-world experience.
PC Building Simulator is a good idle experience. Here you can learn how a PC is made, but forget to learn how to build one seriously thanks to the game.

Great way to learn how to build and upgrade your PC with a lot of components and details.

PC Building Simulator is one of the better entries in the genre, with nice touches of authenticity and attention to detail. It's too limited and simplistic to replicate the experience of putting a rig together yourself, but it does a good enough job to get you started in the right direction.
Really the problem is that even the fun that can be had in PC Building Simulator simply isn't worth the trouble of the painfully slow and clumsy user interface. This is a game that is surprising to find on a non-PC platform but disappointing to learn that it probably should have stayed there. It can really only be recommended if you are a die hard PC enthusiast who doesn't have a PC.
PC Building Simulator is fun to experiment with on a short-term basis, I think if it was possible to add in some more variants like Laptops, Tablets, Phones etc. then it may be more appealing to general gamers however I appreciate with all the components its most likely not a feasible option. Unfortunately, the repetitiveness of the tasks means that it’s a game that will sit on the shelf for rather long spells in between use and after completion will most likely not be played again. PC Building Simulator has reached the Benchmark of the Thumb Culture Bronze Award, usable and fun but could and maybe should be better.
PC Building Simulator on PS4 is an enchanting game, channelling creativity and problem solving through the medium of making and fixing computers that even a PC newcomer like I can get to grips with and wholeheartedly enjoy. I do wish the game had spent a little more time explaining 3DMark scoring and overclocking as these are areas that it skips over too quickly for my liking but otherwise, this is a game that's easy to access, even easier to lose an afternoon too and is a great translation of the PC version.
