Just be sure to use MacsFanControl or TGPro to handle thermals, and for best gaming performance try using bootcamp drivers. I haven’t received and tested mine yet, but as long as you’re playing with headphones, fan noise isn’t much of an issue.
Personally, I had a Windows laptop with an i7 and a 2GB GTX 1650Ti, which was fine for gaming, and a Mac Pro bin with Xeon 6 core and two D300s, which sucked in most games because both GPU drivers don’t play nice anymore. From what I’ve seen online, the 2019 16in has more power than both and consolidates all my systems into one. Hope this was helpful!
edit: there is definitely a better desktop option, as maccheetah suggests in the post below, though obviously it’s a desktop computer and not portable like a laptop. if you don’t need a laptop form factor, this is probably a better option. also apple silicon m1 pro/max isn’t really a viable option IMO because the crossover gives very mixed results from what I’ve heard, and the general lack of expectation of optimization for AS not worth it right now for me
