List of games that work in virtual machines

  • I'll be posting my list of games that work in a virtual machine. Most, if not all, will be older games that won't function in Windows 10 without some kind of hack or just won't work at all. The virtual machine I am using is VMware Workstation Player and the operating system will be Windows XP Professional 32 bit. VMware does allow 3D rendering in Windows XP, so a lot of older games that need this will work. I'll be updating the list every time I install a game.


    I'll sticky this. Feel free to post your own lists and experiences.

  • I installed Far Cry (2004) into VMware, but it won't load. I think the 3D rendering in the virtual machine isn't enough to support the game....disappointing. Far Cry won't load on Windows 10 either, so I guess I'm stuck playing it on my older Vista gaming machine.
