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

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

Not related but I already feel like I won the lottery with the Tekken 7 for PS4 I got through Amazon Prime Day for $1.86 after a promotion credit and gift cards.
$39.99 sale - $10.00 (from promotion for 1st time using Prime video on PS4) - $30 (from cashing out my My Coke Rewards points when it shut down) + 1.87 (tax) = $1.86 + $10 Prime Now future credit (For having them not rush shipping)
Everything perfectly fell in line. grin

Some PS3 game trades are going to look like this later if not already for stuff earlier in the life span of the console. And of course, current gen stuff will look out of wack years down the road. But yeah, funny.

I have 14 shipping confirmations from Gamestop so far. They ship like 1-2 games in a package. Super efficient.

Hastings used to do this. We know what happened to them. Of course Gamestop is a bit more solvent.

Back when Hastings was still around I remember combining promo codes (they shortly nixed the ability to do this) and getting a bunch of dvds for like a dollar each with shipping. Lol.

CeX does it too, which is crazy because they sell games as low as $0.01 and they all come in at least a third party case. I put in one big order with them and threw basically all the $0.01 and $0.05 games in to see what would happen and got a whole bunch of packages with a total value less than a quarter.

@PlayYing If you haven't played Last Story, depending on what else you have on tap, I'd prioritize it. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would. I also felt it was the best of the op rainfall games. Don't @ me about that anyone. :p

@xenoblade is justifiably overrated if you're into mmos but dont have time to commit and need to play at own pace, plus for at its time and on the platform there were not many better,

I got last story at launch and never played through it, should really do that

Makes sense. This stuff isn't all hiding in one hub or anything, honestly they probably ship a lot of this crap out of stores that still have inventory.
