Know any remote control programs for the PC that could work with videogames?

My pals want to play an online game with me but my PC is at my brother's place. I have a laptop but it's not quite powerful enough to run the game. Our internet connections are not too shabby though, so I thought I could try to remote control my PC to play the game.
The problem is, programs like TeamViewer cannot render the game (IDK it's an openGL incompatibility or something; I'm not computer-savvy enough).
Is there a program that would somehow stream a video feed of what's displayed on the screen of my PC when the game is running, while allowing me to control the mouse/keyboard?
P.S.: I am aware there will be lag; it's less than ideal but the game generally shouldn't require much fast reactions on my behalf so I think I could manage.
