The only reason people do not recommend gaming on laptops is the fact that most laptops do not have the graphics for serious gaming. This does not mean that the laptop will suffer from this, it means that the game will not play as well on the laptop as it would on a desktop of around the same price. The only thing you will have to occasionally watch for is if you game a lot, you may see the laptop getting warmer than normal. Depending on the game and the time you play for, the effect may be minimal or you may need to use a cooling pad under it, or possibly limit the pay time. You can verify and quantify the effect by running HWMonitor minimized while you play and after the hour (or other time interval), pause and open up the program and look. It will show you the current, minimum, and the maximum temps since you opened it. If the temperature increase is moderate, there is nothing to worry about, if the temperature increase is high, you may need to take steps to lower it or limit the time in gaming. Post the temps if you are not sure.
Running a bit warm is fine for a laptop and the laptop will begin to throttle back CPU speed if the temps rise past a certain level to protect it from damage. The laptop will shut down if it gets past the safe point. About the only thing you want to avoid is running it just below this point hour after hour, day after day, since this would eventually effect the life of some internal components. Since I do not see you doing this, you should be just fine. Serious gaming should be done on specially built desktops or one of the few laptops designed for it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Playing a game should not cause your laptop to break. I've owned many computers over the years and played games for many hours on them all and never had one break due to game play.

I've had parts fail here and there, but that's due more to a faulty piece on the component, not to "wear and tear" from gaming. This PC is only 1 year old. The one I replaced last year when I bought it was 6 years old at the time and had hundreds of gaming hours on it. It's still sitting here in my office running perfectly.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

But how did you managed to get your pc running perfectly even though you play games hours on it?

So, My Laptop won't break down. Right?
