Unplugged? Then battery is out.

It could also mean severe overheating issue that caused it to shut down. You can check this by downloading then running HWMonitor and checking out CPU and GPU temperature

Horrible advice, there are pently of other manufactures out there much better priced that can play games fine.

How long have you had the laptop?

When was the last time you blew out the vents? By vents I mean the vents taht exhaust the heat from the GPU/CPU.

Is it sitting where a blanket or something else might block the vents from working properly?

If you can do it or are skilled enough to do it, you could remove one of the panels from the bottom of the laptop to see if something got sucked into the fan perhaps, and see if the fans are turning right as they sometimes go bad.
