Remote gaming via program


This may seem like a stupid question, but has anyone ever tried to run games on your home PC via apps like "go to my PC?"

Would be good for a turn based strategy game but nothing requiring real time input.

Or something like Football Manager, otherwise it would suck.

yeah, I've tried it...it was absolutely unplayable. Graphics were messed up, and the lag was well it wasn't even really lag, things just didn't move

Yeah, input lag and general shittiness makes it unplayable. Otherwise, that would be a good business idea. Allow people without a gaming PC to connect to your server to play graphic-intensive PC games for a per-hour or per-month fee.

Tried it on my Galaxy SIII actually.
It was so horrible. Tried to run everything from Diablo 3 to Skyrim (which actually crashed my connection when Skyrim launched and I couldn't reconnect to the remote desktop lol.)

I did however get a few turns out of Heroes of Might and Magic V before I remembered that I didn't play it at home anymore for a reason.
