Those temps are on the higher side, but laptops do tend to run much hotter than desktops, but too long with these temps can cause problems. Try to lower these temps as much as you can by gaming on a hard surface desk (never on a bed), using a cooler pad like the HAVIT HV-F2056 15.6"-17" Laptop Cooling Pad Cooler (link at bottom), or reapplying thermal paste to the CPU to lower its temp.

Cooler Pad: https://www.amazon.com/HAVIT-HV-F2056-Laptop-Cooling-Cooler/dp/B00NNMB3KS/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=office-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1506217382&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=laptop+cooling+pad&psc=1

Good Thermal Paste: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002CQU14A/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I hope this helps.
