How good/bad are these Gaming Laptop temps when playing games?

Fan Speed for Cooling Pad: At it's highest

Temps when browsing/doing other stuff besides gaming:

Tempts when playing PC games like TWD at 1080P, or using Dolphin Emulator from my own disks and playing games for over 40-50 minutes:

Are these pretty decent tempts in regards to extended gaming on my laptop? Or would you recommend I find more ways to lower them? Or are there even better Cooling Pads? I did notice that my keyboard doesn't get quite as hot compared to the past when I was using a smaller cooling pad, which really made playing games unbearable(unless I used a controller) due to how hot the keys would be. However, I recently got this cooling pad today and have been noticing some differences.

Better than my laptop which hits 85-90c even with a cooler.

I remember about 10 years ago I'd actually have to shut down my laptop as the keys would start getting hot. Laptops just weren't meant for heavy gaming and I still think they aren't.

They really need to fix the placement of the components or invent some form of liquid cooling for laptops

Completely fine, when you start going over 90C then start worrying.
