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

@DefaultGen It still has more physical releases than PS3 and I would think the PS3 has been catching up nicely for awhile now.

Catching up to what?

I went through and bought every Wii game I didn't have that wasn't sports, licensed, or a minigame collection, which weeds out like 95% of Wii games.

The amount of games released. I would assume the PS3 is seeing more releases than the Wii at this point... For now the Wii is still ahead though.

I didn't even realize PS3 was getting games still.

I don't really pay attention to most modern releases. I would've figured new Xboxes and Playstations completely supplanted the old consoles by now. Hell, they both already have "1.5" revisions now.

Told ya! Honestly for $70 some shipped, you prob got like 10 games and 2 controllers?

After shipping and fees, seller is netting what $40?

Xbox 360 has been hard to sell for more than couple years now.

Nah, the only good bundles like that for a 500gb unit still run about $145, even though the games are severely worth less. Biggest reason I didn't go with that.

System and controller for $70 after shipping though, I'm all over that.

I don't think so. Is checkout failing? I had to check out in small groups since I'd get an error if I checked out with my full cart.

Yeah. I knew a local store did some promos so I checked their facebook. Last sale on 360s (and they don't even take in old models) was $50 for the system with hooks + controller and three free games of your choosing from a selection of titles.

Bullet Witch is still on my buy list (and Dark Sector if I'm being brutally honest), but I've got Namco Museum Virtual Arcade and Sonic Ultimate Genesis Collection inbound.

Wouldn't mind picking up some of the more popular assorted crap down the line but it's a super low priority, I've got plenty of crap to play right now digitally.

Bullet Witch is awful. I remember buying it when I was poor and it was the cheapest 360 game Gamestop had. But my tastes have evolved to love bad games and people here negative me because I don't think Uncharted 4 is the best so maybe I'd like it now.

oh no, gypsy, why?! why didn't I research?! I love tactical games, and only have disgaea on the two systems, so I figured I'd check these out. And I hoped Red was the same beloved devs as the PCE crew, which is probably ignorant and very wrong.

The star trek game I randomly got, also without research, actually looks pretty good it's like a space rts, wii mote as a mouse... who woulda thought?!

@Gredler Maybe you can trooper along further than I did. They are extremely grindy. In fact iirc there is experience pack DLC, and of course overpowered items DLC. XD

And yeah the game is also Idea Factory and Compile Heart, so that should give you an idea if you've played any of their recent stuff. Or their PSP stuff. In fact in Spectral Force 3 (360 game) I so borked my game that I had to restart.

Not bad at all. I just shot them $25 after taxes for 12 games. With the PUR discount essentially they're just two bucks a pop.

So, you know, for trash, Gamestop does good sometimes. Probably never say that again. Watch me return all but two games. raspberry
