new Thread Description
This thread was originally created to encourage traders here at GTZ to do more trading, especially retro related stuff. It has turned into a lot more and I am so grateful to everyone who contributed to this thread and have kept it going for nearly 6 months now. I hope this thread will continue to thrive and everyone who reads/participates in this thread will gain some value or knowledge out of it.

We will still have Trade lists up here, though it's been a while since anyone updated. I encourage everyone to look over their lists and post updates.
There is also a section for gorgeous pictures of game rooms that active participants of this thread have shared. Feel free to share some pics of your collection or game room.
I will be adding another section for information regarding video quality of retro gaming systems on modern displays and how to improve them.
There is rather some extensive discussion regarding how to improve the display quality of retro gaming systems and if you are new to this like I am, you will find it very informative.

Old Topic Description


GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PayPal. I want to start an effort to get some trades going and to discuss some good games perhaps you never heard of or interested in but want to discover/know more of. For example, I just got intto shmups after years of ignoring the genre and I love to discover new(to me) and rediscover old ones(Sonic Wings comes to mind).

No pressure here. Feel free to discuss anything retro. Perhaps throw out some WTTF targets and what you have to offer. I am sick of browsing people's year old Available lists.

Some examples:

- WTTF/WTB/LF
- What you think is awesome game/series/whatever
- Potential games you have up for trade
- Pics of what you have/what you would love to get/what you think is the bestest awesomest game ever
- Show off your latest finds/adds to your collection

lol, bought a random PlayStation 3 Super Slim on eBay, it's blue color. Got a good deal. I keep pressing X to confirm crap and it kept cancelling the operation...turns out it's a Japanese PS3.

What are the chances? Like 1,000,000 to 1?

Now that I think about it, is there even a US PS3 Super Slim in blue?

Composite. Triggered.

Seriously though where did you find that? Looks cool. The artist is my spirit animal, as my vintage gaming area is pretty much that messy. Though I don't quite have any consoles on the floor. The controller and wire nest is real however.

So I'm about to start buying vintage PC components off eBay and I kind of dread it. Not the prices, those I can live with. My main worry is improper packing on most of this stuff and having it arrive damaged because some trailer park queen doesn't know how to pack this stuff (not helping is that GiTS SAC 1/2 arrived with broken and crushed cases, and I was thinking any old idiot can ship dvds). Unsurprisingly the listings for this stuff are either from trailer park queens or overpriced "computer stores" that ship everything fedex. Quite a first world pickle.

I love how people still trying to profit off of flipping Nintendo Switch systems. Give it up and stop scalping! Even if you sell at $400, you are barely making even.

God, Goldeneye looks like turds. Always has.

I sold my Neon Switch for $380 last week simply to get my money back in the bank until I'm ready to play more Switch games, at which point I'll just buy a Switch (kept all the games, even the Pro controller). Broke even but honestly that's a good position for me to be in. Any time you can use and enjoy something and then get all your dough back when you're finished, that's the dream baby

This is like when the NES Classic was a bit "down" and people were only profiting like $15 after eBay fees and shipping. Like is that really worth your time? I guess the answer for some people is yes.

I bought the Nintendo Switch at launch and have just been getting what I want for it a little at a time. I got lucky with half-price controllers (some locals traded in what they didn't need out of a bundle) so I've got 2 sets of Joy-cons and a pro controller to use. My personal collecting goals are maximum fun at minimum prices, and if I can help someone else out too, so much the better.

I sold Switch at a loss on here after having it for only a few months. Didn't care for many of the games outside of Zelda and Mario Kart.

It's been tempting but I guess I will pick it up again when it's bundled for the holidays...maybe.

I have 2 of them, and would like to trade one for something(s) on my wanted list.
I'll consider paypal offers as well.

Great game, I already have it. yes

@Lunar I know you power cycle through new consoles, but I recommend just waiting until it's a price you'd want to keep it for. Plus by that time, it will probably have more really fun games. I agree there isn't much right now. Certainly when you only look at games that can't be played on other consoles.

It's fun but frankly everything out so far can be gotten elsewhere. My playthru of Zelda was on an Wii U, and I had a Switch on launch day.

Not to say it's a bad system, far from it. I love their digital selection, and that's without even having the Nintendo VC stuff yet. But honestly I'm having more fun with my 360 catching up on unbeaten games than I have been for the majority of this year with the PS4 (Persona 5 aside), Xbox One OR the Switch.

Had a cool completely unexpected experience through ebay. Bought an old sealed box of cards that was priced super cheap. Then I see the guy is about 20 miles from me. Turns out its the former owner of the comic shop I went to as a kid that closed down. He has started an online business now. He is even going to go through more unlisted old stock for me and give me first crack. ^__^

Her NES (NES??) is apparently hooked up via RF. Power adapters littered on the floor, unorganized games and consoles just fudging everywhere, food and drink scattered around, a gashapon machine on top of cardboard boxes. This hoarder girl needs a fudging intervention.

She clearly lives in Japan. Ive never seen a Hard Off here in the states. That means she imported the NES, thats pretty hardcore.

lol, remember I had a DVDO iScan HD+ unit that was damaged? Turns out the LCD damage doesn't affect the unit. It works just fine!

So does anyone want to get into RGB for super cheap?

$30 + shipping for the unit.

You will need a Power Supply, which I can direct you to on eBay($17), and a DVI cable(look in your old PC bin) to get the unit to function.

It takes 2x RGB/YPbPr, 2x S-Video, and Composite(ew)

It's HD DVI so you don't even need an adapter you can get a cable with DVI-D on one end and HDMI on the other.

Also for anyone interested you don't really need the little LCD screen on the front. It can be nice to change settings with the display off just to save some power but any menu stuff will also be visible on w/e it's hooked up to.

I'm sure most have seen this but this dude has a lot of content available and looks like his high offer is only at 150. I already have a lot of it so I'm not that interested in paying for all but thought I'd share the deal.
