What would be the best laptop to get for playing GTA V and Doom 4 all on default settings without lag? Should be anything below $600 and must have 100 GB+ storage.

At $600 you can buy the following Acer laptop with a quad core i5-8250u and nVidia mx150 dedicated GPU. This is basically the lowest priced laptop with a dedicated GPU.

The link below has some benchmarks for the mx150. It is considered a mainstream GPU, compared to nVidia's previous generation GPU it falls about halfway between the GTX 950m and GTX 960m which were considered "entry level" gaming GPUs back in late 2015.

The GTX 1050 is currently considered to be the current "entry level" gaming GPU has roughly similar performance to the GTX 965m. The least expensive laptop which has it is the following $668 Dell laptop.

Here's a link to GTX 1050 benchmarks which are significantly better compared to the mx150:
