Yes, it's a thing. Simulators are meant to simulate flight, not taxiing on the ground. The movement when taxiing is completely off. They also tend to be a bit difficult to fly visually, as the 2d screen doesn't give you a stereoscopic view of what you are looking at, making it hard to judge distances.
