Epic Games Store: Free Games – 7th October 2021

PC Building Simulator

Given the state of the PC hardware market right now (and I’m looking at you, graphics cards), PC Building Simulator might be the closest any of us get to installing the latest GPU in a machine for a long time yet. There’s a part of me that’s always been intrigued by this game (along with the Mechanic Simulator series) because I’ve never really seen the appeal of pretending to build a computer versus actually doing it. Do you get the same sense of accomplishment when you can’t accidentally gouge a deep scratch across the motherboard circuitry? I honestly don’t know.

Having said that, I just rebuilt my own computer after having not really done any PC building for years and it felt good. So maybe there is something to the risk-free version, where one slip doesn’t write off almost $1000 worth of hardware. Maybe I do get it after all.

So it’s the kind of game that I definitely wouldn’t buy – even on sale – but it’s absolutely the kind of thing I’d try for free.
