It is normal for the computer to heat up/fans run while playing computer intensive games, but it should not be hot enough to burn you.

If you are concerned that the computer is getting too hot, you can take the device to an Apple Store and have them run a hardware diagnostic.

My computer gets pretty hot while playing games as well, but I just don't touch the hot parts. Make sure you are in a well ventilated area. Also never play games or use the computer on your lap/bed/pillow/etc... as they could be blocking the ventilation areas on the computer.
