Operate your own farm with animals, equipment, and buildings to see if you have the skills to be a success.

If you're looking for realism when it comes to a game, then that's what you'll get with Farming Simulator 17. From the tractors with enclosed cabins to the animals that look as real as they sound, you'll see that this game means business. There are numerous vehicles that you can drive on your farm, including a basic tractor or a large combine that will gather wheat and other items to make hay and other necessities that you need for the farm to operate.

You're in charge of your farm, so it's your responsibility to choose the crops that you plant, harvest. You also need to choose the animals that you raise from babies as they will be sold along with the items that you get from them, such as eggs and milk. The game begins with an empty field, so you can plow the ground in preparation for your crops. There will be a few issues that you deal with that have to do with land purchases and money. This is where your management skills will be put to use.

This game features over 200 vehicles alone, making your job easy, but you need to know how much to sell your items for once you have completed your harvest. Weather issues can also come into play. If there's too much rain, then you might see that your land is flooded, but if there's not enough rain, then the crops might not grow at all, which will cause your animals to suffer as well.
