That's more drain than I've ever experienced. Have you tried a CPU monitor, and care to tell us the name of the game(s)?

Sometimes a game can unnecessarily run all CPU cores at full throttle. PBA Bowling is a big drain, though at the pace it uses up the battery, I can still get 6 hours of life.

That's Wierd Because I Get 8-10 Hours Of Gaming W/ Airplane Mode On, Wi-Fi On, GPS Off, Bluetooth Off, Currents Un-Auto Sync, Etc...
I Play Modern Combat 4 Online For Hours (The Whole Day) Without The "Connect Your Charger" Until Late At Night Like 11 Or 12. I Used Play
GTA: San Andreas For Hours ( I Beat It ).

That's seems pretty low. While you can't expect 8-10 hours of actual usage with graphic intense games, I get about 5 hours screen time over 2 days when I spend the majority time gaming. Even if I did nothing but game on my tablet I expect I'd still get close to 5 hours usage over the course of a day.
