Question PC reboots whilst playing a game, but is fine afterwards ?

I've noticed a very prominent issue on my PC, where, if I play a game for a few minutes, my PC will restart itself with no bluescreen or warning, and upon booting back up, if I play the same game, the pc will not reboot or freeze again until the pc has been shut down and turned back on. If, after rebooting, I try to play a different game, it will reboot again. If I open the game for about 2 minutes, then close the game and reboot my pc manually, the same affect will happen and I will be able to play the game without the pc rebooting.

The same issue is not present for software that isn't a game

I'm not sure what the issue is, as the pc isn't overheating, doesn't seem to be a problem with the sata cables connected to the hard drives, and SMART shows no harddrive issues.

My specs are -
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3400G
HDD1: 1TB Seagate BarraCuda SATA-III
HDD2: 3TB Kingston drive
MEMORY: 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4/2400mhz Dual Channel Memory
MOTHERBOARD: MSI A320M-A PRO
OS: Windows 10 64 Bit
OVERCLOCK: No Overclocking
POWERSUPPLY: Corsair Vengeance Series 650M 650W
VIDEO: MSI GeForce® GTX 1660 SUPER 6GB

Thanks in advance to anyone who tried to figure it out! :)
