oh man, yes
I don't know what is immersive for you, but even an 1500$ laptop will let you play on highest settings many of heaviest games.

what are you looking for?

Today's mobile GPUs are extremely potent.
This is especially true in the high end. (Which a $2000 budget qualifies you for)

An nvidia 680m is a desktop GTX 670 downclocked with slower RAM.

An AMD 7970m is a slightly downclocked desktop 7870.

With that kind of power, it is absolutely not a surprise that laptops equipped with 1 or 2 of those can deliver solid gaming experiences.

I'd like to point out that a desktop will always result in better performance for your money as you pay for the convenience and mobility of a laptop. However, the sacrifices once made for that union are MUCH lower than they used to be.
