Here are 2 mainstream gaming laptops to consider:

1. This is a 17.3" MSI with a 1070 card, from Amazon US priced at $2,300:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MU51RX0/ref=psdc_13896615011_t1_B01N6L9S7U

If you absolutely must have a 1080 card, there's this 17.3" Alienware, from BestBuy priced at $2,575:
2. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/alienware-r4-17-3-laptop-intel-core-i7-32gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1080-256gb-solid-state-drive-1tb-hard-drive-silver/5744103.p?skuId=5744103

Alienware is Dell's gaming line and the machines are generally well received by reviewers, but ridiculed by users on most forums (including Tom's) for reasons I can't explain. This model is the least expensive 1080-based laptop I could find - typically, such machines retail for about $3,000.

I know it's none of my business - and it's your money - but I have to say with the games you've listed you'd be perfectly OK with a 1050 card, possibly even a 900-series card. In my opinion, there's no way you'll ever be able to detect any difference between a 1070 and a 1080 card unless you're a pro-gamer playing AAA titles at ultra settings.
