Various issues primarily Windows XP virtual PC in Windows 7 and Gaming

A while back i downloaded and installed a Virtual PC of Windows XP in hopes of playing two games:
Diablo
King's Quest: Mask of Eternity.

I tried getting my Graphics drivers on it but foundout i cant do that and was wondering what can i do to make it so i can play them, and other more current games through it.

Side notes; i've added 2700mb ram to the virtual XP and it did it's "windows updates" today and passed the genuine test.

as far as errors go King's Quest just immediately closes and asks me to send/dont send the error report. and diablo i believe works ok.

Minecraft on the otherhand gives a detailed error, but simply put the first few lines say this:


" Bad video card drivers!
-----------------------
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers. "

Often games don't behave well on virtual machines, due to poor graphical hardware virtualization. Many times, demanding games will run very slow or choppy, or not recognize the minimum requirements at all.

Why not give the games a try at the real machine instead?
