When I am playing certain games, right now it's Red Dead Redemption 2, my computer will randomly shut down. It will black screen, turn off all peripherals, but the fans on the inside continue to be powered on.

Seems like your PSU might be incapable of powering the entire system when under load. Might want to corroborate that hunch with your system's specs. List them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Include the make and model of your PSU as well as it's age.

List the games that have brought about the same issue.

GPU:Nvidia GeForce gtx 2070
PSU: CORSAIR CX750M V2
Chassis:
OS: Windows 10.

PSU was my first guess as well, I had a 600w that this happened on. Just got the Corsair 750 two days ago and the problem persisted. It also happened in Gears Of War 5, but in both games only occur during cutscenes.
