    Nothing you can do about it.
    Some games are very cpu and gpu intensive and thus the added heat caused and battery drain.

    This post made my day.

    I'd probably get a gaming system (ex, x-box) to game and keep my phone for use as a phone.

    Like Applejuiced says this can happen plus the heat from your hand aids the feel of heat too.

    Because your 4S didnt have a metal back that transfers and disperses the heat to your hands.
    The back glass on the 4S is not the same heat conductor as alluminum is on the i5.
    All iphone 5 models back plates heat up after long or heavy use.
