This is what the error code 0x0000008E refers to:

A kernel mode program generated an exception which the error handler didn’t catch. These are nearly always hardware compatibility issues (which sometimes means a driver issue or a need for a BIOS upgrade).

Since it happens during playing a game it might be an issue with your video card or Bios video.

Is you Video card old or new (if old check compatibility with the game),

Have you updated your driver lately.

As it worked good before during playing the game or as it never worked well.

Does your video card have a fan on it, if yes is it working or dirty (overheating may cause a BSOD during heavy usage)
