I've been flying for some time and have never been overly thrilled with PC simulators. I think it is the lack of the 'big picture" you get from the cockpit vs a screen plus the actual feel of the accelerations, G loads, etc. It could also be that it took me a long time to be proficient with all the switches on the stick and throttles and I am too lazy to relearn that process on a computer. That being said, they make for great introductions to the concept of cross checks and some aircraft performance abilities.
