Gaming over ESXi

Alex asked
Last Modified: 2018-09-17

So I have a fun one, I need to build this server to ESXi 6.5, it's got 2 Nvidia K2 GPU's and a dual processor, 12 core Xeons.

My Director, yes, Director, wants me to build this as a virtualized Gaming Environment for Friday Afternoons.

Now I've read that you can do this and I know that there are a few things that need to be changed within ESX. However, my question would be can multiple people game at the same time from the server and shoot each other in the face. It won't be a heavy game, something like counter strike :D
