Default games on a usb drive

OK, so can I install a game on a USB drive and run it from there? Then I could load (and play) games at work during slow times and not have to actually install them on the work machine.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

If you mean real games, probably not. Maybe flash games you could.

install the game to the directory in the flash drive, there will be registry changes but that doesnt take up memory.
