If your internet connection is too slow, if you are playing on a laptop, you may want to try a coffeeshop with faster connection.
I have 100Mbps connection and today it took about 10 minutes to download Far Cry 3, a game which requires 10GB space on your HDD. (DL speed was roughly 12.5MB/s, I suppose the downloaded compressed files were around 8GB or so.)
