But if you are serious, then the answer is everyone used to use 56k.  Through the telephone line, for like 6 years.
Actually those were considered "normal" internet connections at the time, lol.  Because it was all you had at the time.  They were not bad or cheap, its just all there was.
And we had AOL and Netzero and other horrible dial-up companies, lol.  And then came napster and then all this adware crap, it is a long story really.
I can remember when looking at a nude girl image it would slowly render down the screen.  It was slow.
Hey I remembered the rippers name it was MYTH
I'm not trying to troll people here. I couldn't bother to look up an answer because I couldn't think of what to search for, so I posted this here. So yeah, I'm serious.

Just what DS mentioned

early 2000 times, true most of us had crappy dial up

So a ps1 disc would have been 2 or 3 days download @ 500MB

20MB games were an hour, Win updates was a set and forget thing, come back tommorow.

Rips became commonplace and were welcomed by most

I have a box of PS1 rips here from then, Mortal Combat Trilogy @11mb, no intro, no music, no sound, just kill!

Old Mega went down....my flag is still at halfmast

Yeah I am an expert on trolling,

Aside from that if you remember these "warez" game rips then you must remember how you downloaded them?
Am I missing something,
your dad downloaded them?

yeah I remember to play starcraft without the music lol

Actually we all had 56k modems for like 5-10 YEARS
dude where were you? lol

I didn't download the rips back then, they were on my old, long gone hard drive for years now. I asked my grandpa and he said the files most likely came from a hard drive he bought years ago and he also had the files on a portable USB hard drive he originally had in Ha Giang. He couldn't remember exactly where he bought that hard drive though.

I forgot to mention though, of course I didn't download much back in the years when and after I have my first internet IIRC. Adds to reasons why I didn't know the videos in rips were removed until now.
