Vps is a server like dedicated one with root access. You can install all softwares you want.
Generally you need more than 512 mb for run a good game server.
But remember to ask to the hosting provider if game server are allowed.

A VPS server is well capable of hosting games for you. You can host games and play them online with your own individual server through a suitable VPS plan. They come in various cheap prices for your convenience.

You can use VPS server to host games. But the main advantage of dedicated game servers is their suitability for hosting in professional data centers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_center), with all of the reliability and performance benefits that needs. So better to go with Dedicated Game Server.

The VPS servers are hosted in datacenters as well. The VPS servers are SCALABLE so if you suddenly need to upgade the memory to be able to sustain more players... you don't have to do anything complicate... you dont have to change hardware, you will just have to contact your provider.

Although it is possible to host it on a VPS, a lot of providers do not allow this, as it effects other VPS clients on the same node. Dedicated servers both in EU and US are pretty cheap these days, you would be better off getting a dedicated server - unless the game you are trying to run is not very demanding :)

You will need to purchase a high resource added vps to run a game server.
