High 'System' cpu usage when playing games

Hi, ive had this problem for a few months now and cant find a solution online. whenever im playing games i notice my CPU usage is very high, looking in the task manager i can see that 'System' is in high usage, usually 27% or higher, but only when playing games and returns to normal when the game is closed. Sometimes a system restart will fix the problem but this isnt very reliable, and is becomeing more frequent. Has anybody else had this issue or know a fix?

Why is it a problem, that's what CPUs are for

Because it doesnt normally do it, and when it happens games become very slow and sluggish
