Default help: insane battery drain

hello fellow s3 i9300 users, i have a problem with my phone. my phone has 70%++ battery but whenever i play a game (e.g. kritika and street skater) for around 3-5 minutes my phone reboots and the battery is now 3% or 5% charged. but if i use the phone normally like just call text and surf the web the battery works normally. hope you can help me fix this issue.

i have tried calibrating the battery, wiping cache but the problem is still there.

by the way im on stock 4.3 rooted and clockwork recovery installed and nothing else.

Sounds like a battery problem more than the software. Try replacing the battery.

Try replacing the battery. Something that is extended to handle the gaming and from a reputable source.
