Building has become a very popular genre within gaming, and there are plenty of PlayStation 4 titles that fit the mold. From Minecraft to Fortnite, let's rank the best PS4 building games available on the console right now.

One PlayStation 4 game with a building element is Fallout 4. Released in late 2015, the newest installment in the Fallout series added a new building and crafting mechanic to an already amazingly in-depth game. If you've never played No Man's Sky, they just released a huge update, so now is a good time to try it out. Other options include City Skyline, Conan Exiles, and Stardew Valley.

Not every building game on this list is a PS4 original - take 7 Days To Die for example, which came out in 2013. However, all these building games are currently available on the PlayStation Store, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite building game for PlayStation 4, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
