Pendrive/Thumbdrive question

Forums: 

Forgive me if I'm posting in the wrong forum, category, etc. I'm typing this on Linux Mint, which is pretty much the only time I've touched linux for more than 2 minutes if you don't count ChromeOS and Android. I had just learned how to boot from a USB (so I can use the family computer without using the family Vista) and it's running great.

Anyway, I notice that even though I have a 16GB thumb drive, I was only allowed to create 4GB of persistent space on top of the OS to save files and such. If I wanted to put Steam and Oblivion on here (upwards of 7GB in all), do I have to actually install Linux mint to the hard drive? Or is there a different software I should have used other than pendrive to create more writable space on this USB stick?

I'm merely experimenting at this point, but I'm always curious. Thanks!
