Torrents are one of the most popular ways to share files online. You can find virtually any game through various torrent sites online. Installing a game you download via torrent is a little more involved than installing a purchased game. You'll need to crack the copy-protection on the game. This wikiHow teaches you how to download and install a torrent game.
Torrenting is the act of retrieving or sending content using the BitTorrent network. To download content using BitTorrent, users must first retrieve or create an associated TORRENT file. When the user opens the file in BitTorrent, BitTorrent begins downloading the content the file points to.
You can open a TORRENT file and use it to download its associated content in a variety of torrenting applications, including BitTorrent (Windows, Mac), uTorrent (Windows, Mac, Android), FreeDownloadManager (cross-platform), and Vuze (cross-platform).
A lot of stuff that... uh... "pushes the boundaries of copyright law" is distributed initially by various groups on the alt.binaries newsgroups [EDIT: actually FTP topsites, see comments]. This is to save bandwidth, since the entire file only needs to be uploaded once, instead of to everyone who wants it until a seeder network is established. These get downloaded by a few people who then seed them to the torrent networks.
The multiple .rars are legacy from the usenet source, since many newsgroup servers have a maximum attachment limit -- as well as the aforementioned ability to easily download a replacement or use a parity file to recover damaged parts (things get damaged a lot in newsgroups). This doesn't matter in torrents, but it's a legacy of the initial source of whatever content it is.
For the files actually downloaded in the torrent client loading the torrent file, there isn't really any reason either if it's just one large file split into several rars. For several files split into rars, there could be a use if the user only wants to download the rars containing specific files (selecting only them for download).
As files in a torrent are downloaded in small pieces, further splitting these files by rars is a waste of time (assuming the files are not compressing well, like video files etc., for HUGE text files there could be value in it I guess, but not by splitting into several rars.).
