It really depends on the game. If it's reliant on the game files being in a certain directory, it could be tricky to get it to run entirely from an external. Also, you have to consider the fact that depending on the bus connection you're using, you could degrade the performance of the game having it on an external (particularly USB2 external drives - it would be less of a concern with Firewire 800).

You can use aliases to trick most applications into believing that their files are in the original location. That may be something to try.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
