I finished downloading Skyrim from Steam at 11:00 p.m. (EPT) on September 25, 2013. This morning September 26, 2013 at 6:30 a.m. (EPT) I attempted to play Skyrim from Steam. It told me that Skyrim was preparing to launch. At 7:00 a.m. (EPT) I left to go to school and left my computer running. I got home at 3:30 p.m. (EPT) and when I woke up my computer from sleep mode it was still telling me that it was preparing to launch Skyrim. This would be the first time launching Skyrim from my computer. I have a laptop with 4 GB of RAM. I closed the previous launch page, then I clicked the play button again. It has now taken 2 hours and is telling me preparing to launch Skyrim. Is that a problem or just a bug? Or is my computer just too slow to run Skyrim?
