Could be that the games cause you to run out of memory - some are not good at releasing it when it is no longer needed. The regular programs like Word etc don't need the same amount of memory.

'Might also be worth looking at the event logs.

Temperature, your processor is getting too hot and the computer is restarting to protect itself.

Irishman might be right - check your system temperature. I recently had the same problem and found that my graphics card had overheated, despite it working fine in my PC for a whole year.
