    Can you play games off of an external hard drive?

    Can you play games off of an external hard drive?

    I want to get a WD My Passport 1TB Portable External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0 Black (Amazon.com: WD My Passport 1TB Portable External Hard Drive Storage USB 3.0 Black: Computers & Accessories)

    If I download a game to that hard drive, (a game such as Medal of Honor Warfighter, Black Ops 2, Modern Warfare 2, Burnout Paradise City), will I be able to open it and play it from the external hard drive with no FPS problems and no issues in general?

    If you can answer this for me, I would appreciate it a lot. Thanks in advance!

    Of course, just make sure you don't accidentally unplug the USB while you're playing.
    Click the 'Thanks' button at the bottom right if I helped you in some way or if you're a good person looking to thank me for no reason

    Wouldn't recommend it cause the load times would be very slow on USB 3.0.

    If the external hard drive can perform well then it should be fine.

    Yeah, I thought the loading times would be very slow. I think I'm just gonna have to get an internal hard drive.
