    I use to find direct downloads of the zip (sometimes rar) files. But lately I've just checked the release info ans search for the file name and get them via torrents. I feel this is better since the file is more likely to be in its original released state by groups.

    Thoughts?

    I download all my ROMs and most of my PC games from direct downloads, and the rest of my PC games from torrents.

    I plant them, and when they grow up I cut them off.

    Direct downloads.
    The provider varies, depending on the type of ROM I'm looking for.

    Same. I believe one of the sites I usually go to had a mention on the April Fools podcast.

    Extract the ROM from original cart. It's a nice setup because I can also extract and upload my saves from and to the original. Buy your games so you can avoid "pirate boredom syndrome".

    Special equipment, one must buy the game, and the leak them online. Takes an average of 10mintues after the real release of the game to get it, then they guy who gets it spreads the love.

    Really, well that's breaking GBATemp's rules for not mentioning sites that link to ROMs
