    I visited this torrent site not too long ago, but I can't remember which one it was.

    It was a gaming torrent site, and the focus of the site was classic gaming.
    It was pretty active.

    It had a lot of game guides and scans of manuals and game art books and things of the sort.
    As well as actual games, of course.

    Anyone know the name?

    Is this a trick question for us to give you the name of a torrent site?

    Underground Gamer is it!

    But it looks like I haven't logged on that recently and they deleted my account. :/ And now they've closed registration! Sadness.

    Oh well, thanks for the name of it.

    Torrents aren't illegal. Downloading torrents containing copyrighted files is illegal.

    The use of torrents as a download system is not illegal, but sharing or downloading copyright protected material via torrents IS.

    Example:
    Downloading Transformers movie = illegal
    Downloading this = legal

    Did that guy edit his post to make it look like he said nothing? There was a sudden jump from discussion of underground gamer, to the legality of torrents
