Do you want to have the entire OS emulated or do you just want some applications emulated? If the later I would suggest Wine as it will allow you to just some Windows applications. I don't know that much about VMware, or at least the different favors, I do know that if your intention is to play games that are Windows based, it would be better to run them through Wine. VMware doesn't directly connect the emulated OS to the hardware.

Wine:
