Your new to the forum. Yep i agree.

You ask a specific question about running a game inside a VM. I research what you are truong to do and the first 3-4 pages in Google point to Russian hacks and downloading torrents to create your VM’s so maybe you’ll understand my skepticism by this.

The VMware SVGA card will not be able to run CS:GO and as far as i know VMware Player will not do passthrough for video cards.

Are you able to check the VM settings in VMware Player and make sure that they are set to accelerate graphics and set the memory. Else you may need a different card that can handle OpenGL, which is what i think CS:GO uses.
