Whole house entertainment

This isn't so much a hardware question as it is a software and implementation question. I'm currently running a basic HTPC and NAS. The NAS runs to other tv's consoles, etc. in each room. I would like to encorporate gaming into my current setup. I have a fairly high-end htpc setup that would be fully capable of playing games and streaming them across my network. How would I go about doing this? I'm looking for some good front end game launcher to run from XBMC as well as some sort of server that can stream games in the backround and the appropriate client to receive it.

Thanks in advance.

To my knowledge the only thing that's able to "stream" games is running Steam OS. I haven't looked into this for a while but start your research there.

SteamOS or Steam Big Picture Mode are your only options here without investing in a server/thin client setup that would cost tens of thousands. You won't be able to game on more than one system at a time unless you build multiple systems capable of natively playing the games, however.
