But to make your life easier... I also play the games you do and indeed it gets "very hot" and by that I mean imagine making a hot cup of tea and let it cool for 7-8 minutes...which is still hot. I left my phone playing by itself NFS from full charge till it batter emtpy. Never ever had an issue with it.
The basic principle remains. If the proc gets overheated (unless you are living on hawaii/mexico, playing NFS on the naked sun) overcooking the phone, it should still shut down by itself.

About the recoding part that might be correct as well. I am not sure which algorythm note 2 uses, but capturing the video and encoding it into .mp4 requires some serious processing power. (just try to encode some .mp4 on your desktop pc and see your i7 crank up to 100% and fans try to fly out your pc)
I have the same issue the whole upper part of screen became very hot after 10 min of playing NFS, thay will not damage my screen?

I had the same problem... was ur phone plugged in the charger?if yes find anothr plug, if no try changing kernel... because i had the same thing, phone would over heat for no reason. if changing kernel doesnt fix issue try changing rom, do not ignore this because with previous experience i fried my HTC one X(board) it became useless tell me if this helps!

Does the note 2 get really hot after gaming too long on fpse or epsxe? When I say gaming too long I mean 1-2 hours of gaming. Please someone tell me.

I use epsxe to play Final Fantasy Tactics and have never even noticed a slight increase in heat. I just played for 1.5 hours and still have 82% battery left.

It sometimes came to me when I play games during charging.
It should be not harmful to your device

I am so confused, do you suggest me to bring it back to store? or it is normal? have you ever had overheating on your Note 2 before?
(The mobile data was on, I was not running any apps on background, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi was off, brightness was full)

Thanks in advance!

That's really strange about the original note, as I still have that phone laying around. Have you tried completely uninstalling epsxe? Also, what game in specific are you playing while it's becoming hot?
