Such a large drive would work well for storing media. How, exactly, would games be stored and not installed with an external drive? Most games use DRM that checks the disc, so you cannot copy the files and folders. Those that use online only authentication rarely need discs after install. You could also use a drive emulator to create an image of the game, but that is not always a good idea. If most of your games come from Digital River, Direct2Drive, or some other digital distribution service, then I could see using it to store the EXE's and ISO's. I used an external drive to install games, just remember to have it plugged in when you play and uninstall the titles before you wipe the drive. You would also have to deal with USB's slowness, unless you get an eSATA drive.
