  • Hi,

    I don't know if I get your question right. Do you want to run games on a Windows Server like on Windows 8? Most of them will not run on a server and the purpose of a server is not to play games on it.

    As a developer, I have used Windows Server on a workstation on many occasions for the purpose of developing and testing software. I can tell you that in general most applications run just fine, exactly the same as if you were running them on a Windows Client. However, I don't do any gaming on my development machines, so I can't attest as to how well you can run games.
