Please, first run a backup of the device information as explained here. Then perform a system repair using PC Companion or Bridge for MAC. This will factory reset your phone and erase all data. You might need to charge your device for about 1-2 hours before so the device has at least 80% battery. Make sure the device is not connected to computer or laptop and turned off until you are prompted (sometimes you have to press power button and volume up until the device vibrates 3 times or on some devices you have to press the small button near the SIM tray or on the back of the device). Start PC Companion -> Support zone -> Update my phone/tablet -> Blue Repair my phone/tablet -> follow instructions. When prompted connect your phone still switched off holding volume down or back button. The repair or reformat process will start. If you are using Windows 8/8.1 or a 64 bit operating system adjust settings for PC Companion and run in compatibility mode -> chose Windows 7 or XP. I´m at disposal for any question.

Games are now quite HW demanding, the longer you play it the hotter it will get, another example its Ingress, it will heat up your phone and drain the battery really fast, the phone closes the game to protect itself from overheating.
As for your phone getting hot w/o opening app means that there are background apps running and/or a really poor network coverage.
Boot on safe mode and see if you experience the same heating w/o opening apps, stay on safe mode for 2 or 3 hours, keep in mind it will disable third party apps.
