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

$100's a gratuitous price for it, even as solid as the games on it are. Figured if I was looking for it, $30 would be something I'd pay for it.

DC stuff's weird, I'm not even sure half off is enough

Once upon a time I wanted to collect all 5 volumes but I PSN'd them. It'd still be nice to own volume 5 for Valkyrie though.

@dunno001 must be miffed too.

If there is anyone in this thread that would do it, it makes sense that it was the guy importing Dreamcast games in bulk, including LE/CEs of games he couldn't even really play back in like 2006.

I imported Dreamcast back in 1999! Expendables was amazing! Look at it now.

I think less people were importing it in 2006. At least in 1999 it was fresh. Lol. Basically it was just something cheap and Japanese for me to collect for. Shoulda picked something like PC-FX in hindsight.

I have a hard time spending alot of time playing old fighters. Prob cuz all the people that used to hang out and play are all busy with their own thangs or have families too.

Adult life sucks.

That's pretty much my favourite era for fighters. A lot of new ones don't do much for me tbh.

Fewer.

Also I have whatever Xbox games are still in that old thread. Only you and one other person bought any IIRC and I didn't want to dump them on my game shop since they can't sell Xbox games.

Ah okay, I'll take a look later. I ended up just buying a Raspi case and just dropped some cash on @DiamondDave but I think I had some fringe interest in some I didn't buy.

You think we are almost due for another $15 off eBay @Lunar? I have my eye on some Sega Saturn twin sticks from Japan.

It's been super quiet this month. But if past is any indication, I think there should be one around the month's end.

I have some random Sega Saturn imports on my watch list.

Tony, dibs on PS1!

I cannot play SFV on PS4 anymore! After playing for a good bit on PC, it just runs much smoother than PS4 and loads much faster.
MY GPU is several years old too(Radeon R9 280 3GB), but I put in way tooo much RAM for my own good (I like to open Chrome tabs and leave them open lol)

You guys are making me consider trading my full set of Namco Museum games... But only if I could get something nice for benstylus in return.

Plus volume 5 has a damaged insert.

@sailorneorune I would be interested in just 2 and 4. I already have 1,3 and 5 but I understand if you would want to move them as a full set.

@Lunar lol, I will get a list when I decide what to keep and what im gonna let go. I am going to have to make some decisions about what im going to physically collect and what im ever going to be able to play, as my collection rule for myself is it has to be something I will play at some point, but im running out of space and time is at a premium and there are so many games out now I just don't know how much I will get back to certain things and I doubt i'll ever play certain things again, too many games I haven't played to replay something I have in many cases, the exception will prob always be ff7, i'll probably always play that one every few years or so. I had decided I was going to do ps1 gen and forward but I may have to change that to ps2 and up as far as collecting goes, and digital the ps1 and older.

@Flathead_Shuval lol... meme farmer, dying again.
