Are FS's Good For Future Pilots?

I WAS THINKING ABOUT FLIGTH SIMULATORS. DO THEY HELP FUTURE PILOTS, LIKE ME? I CAN FLY WELL A LITLLE PLANE(LIKE CESSNA 182IN FS98) , AND I HAVEN'T MAKE A COURSE, BUT I WILL START IT NEXT YEAR. CAN FS GIVE ME ANY EXPERIENCE IN THE FUTURE OR IS IT ONLY FOR FUN? THANK YOU FOR YOUR OPINION!

FS is really for fun but it helps a little like reading instruments and a little controls but it also does alot of BAD things for example:
Yor flight instructor will always be telling you to keep your eyes out side the plane and you will have a heard time learning to flare as you have no feel for what is going on. You might also not want to use your feet.
I use my FS for trying to land the 737 on a carrier and thing like that. Basically screwing around. But I can fly the real deal also.
All of you just have fun with the FS and do not think you can fly the real thing as it is a lot harder then you think.
Thank you and good night!
