    Well, dedicated server is the server you lease at webhosting company. Colocation is the server which you (or someone you pay) buy, build, configure and deliver to the Data Center, where it is paced into the rack you rent. First option is usually cheaper and easier, since webhosting company takes care of everything, while the second requires a lot of work from your side.

    You will have to do all the work performed by server administrators, like server's software installation and updates, maintaining backups, server monitoring etc.

    The main difference between dedicated server and collocation server is, dedicated Server is where you rent a server from a provider and colocation is where you rent the rack space, power and bandwidth from the provider and provide your own server.

    Yes you can use dedicated server as gaming server. It is more recommendable to use dedicated server for gaming as these are capable of providing that speed which is needed for gaming.
