The Best Building Games Out Now

Nothing's better than watching your very own creation come to life (though building up utopias and then watching them crumble is also pretty fun)! These building games are available right now in 2019 and are sure to fill that creative gap in your life. Which of these current building games are your favorites?

If your imagination runs wild, then games like Minecraft and Besiege are right up your alley. These games came out years ago and gamers are still creating new things. Maybe you enjoy designing and renovating your own home. If so, then you need to try games like The Sims 4 and House Flipper, which let you completely customize your living space.

Whether it's sustaining life on another planet with Surviving Mars or running a banana republic in Tropico 5, these building games will satisfy your hunger for creating. Vote up your favorite building games, and if there are any titles you think deserve recognition, go ahead and add them to the list.
