I was playing forza horizon today and I was wondering if there was any games like that for motorcycles. I couldn't think of any and when I typed in motorcycle games I just got GP which is closed track racing like the other forzas. I put this in general games cause the question goes for pc or any console.

To my knowledge, there isn't anything like Forza Horizon but for motorcycles, although hopefully I'll be proved wrong. The closest I can think of are the Test Drive Unlimited games. In terms of full-bike racing games though, there's Tourist Trophy on the PS2, which is essentially Gran Turismo 4 but with bikes (so really good).

Excitebike on NES is probably the best bike game I've ever played.

Motor Bike! http://macintoshgard...ames/motor-bike

I loved the simple controls in this game (move mouse up to accelerate, down to decelerate), and the engine sound.

Use Mini vMac to play it: http://www.emaculati...mini_vmac_setup

The topic reminded me of my old days, when me and my brother used to play MotoGP

I too love Excitebike, and as someone who does, I strongly, strongly suggest checking out Joe Danger if you have not done so already. It is the 21st century version of Excitebike, and it is awesome.

The MotoGP series is also what came to my mind as well.
