This question can seem trivial but I'm not a native English speaker. I'm hosting a server which hosts games and I was wondering: is it called a game server or a games server?

I would suggest game server on the basis of other similar constructions such as file server or database server, where the object being "served" is singular rather than plural. Wikipedia agrees.
