VM suggestion for gaming?

submitted by bluestarshield

Welp, it's finally happened. Windows 10 has become so bloated, slow, and spooky that I finally have decided to bite the bullet and set up a VM on my linux Mint partition. Do you have any suggestions for a virtual machine? My PC is a relatively basic mid-range business laptop, 8gb of ram, no GPU, only a few years old. I'm a little concerned about performance impact, as I've heard that VMs take more system resources than the OS running natively. Any recommendations of software/configurations that would work best for me?

EDIT for clarity: The games i intend to run are, largely, older non-steam games. i obviously just use proton for all my steam games, but some weird older ones don't have a steam release/i don't have the steam version.
