Does it happen to all games, or just 1 game ?

Maybe because your game startup triggered the shutdown?
Did you click a shortcut that targets the shutdown?
Explains more please.

Someone must've been using the (shutdown -f = forced shutdown of PC) command on your PC. Perhaps someone close to you made a fake "game shortcut" like a prank that was aimed specially at you with this evil command. That means if you click the game shortcut you'll get black screen and you'll get logged out in some cases (if running on Windows 7) if you're on Windows XP the PC will shutdown normally, if it's not that then perhaps you should check what processes are running at startup and disable any dangerous processes in taskmanager aswell. Also scan your PC with a virus scanner and remove any threats you find. It's possible that your PC is infected by malware.

It can also happen if you play a hight game, which requires more resources from your computer. Then the processor just overheats and the computer reboots or freezes.

if it turns off after some time, it means that CPU or video card is overheated. It happens because of dust in your PC coolers. So, just clean them. or set new one (1st way is better)

You need a new GFX card and some new improved RAM to make PC stable again for gaming.
