Riding through this world all alone, God takes your soul, you’re on your own; the crow flies straight, a perfect li-wah, where was I. Ah it's MotoGP 17 time, a chance for us to relive our dreams of mounting 350 pounds of metal, with 250HP tucked between our legs, grazing our knees as we bundle around corners. Few motorbiking games quite nail the feeling like MotoGP, and MotoGP 17 looks to improve on everything that came before, as well as including the full 2017 MotoGP track and rider list. Be warned though, MotoGP 17 is no slouch in the system requirements department.

As I said earlier, MotoGP 17 won't give your gaming PC an easy ride. The recommended specs are pretty daunting to say the least, and Milestone reckon you're going to need a pretty decent video card with at least 4GB of VRAM in order to max the settings out. Likewise the CPU pairing is pretty high end; probably a necessity if you want to render all 24 riders at a high level of detail.

Fortunately things are much more forgiving with MotoGP 17's minimum specs, suggesting a high degree of scalability. Here you can get away with a budget video card and an aging CPU, opening up MotoGP 17 to a wide variety of PC gaming systems.
