I've been thinking along these lines, but it leaves the problem of where to store saved games. The best I can think of is to take a leaf from Sony and require people to buy a USB stick for the purpose.
Then there's the speed issue: one reason many games install to disk is to speed up access to the game files.
If a live-CD tried to copy its files to disk it has a significant risk of breaking the installed system.
