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

Would you believe Sonic '06 is a rare fudging game in my neck of town? I'm about to have to take a bus ten miles out, then another two out possibly, to track this fudging thing down. The last stop will absolutely have it, but fudge, dude

So recently I had two eBay sellers never mark as shipped. I got one item today pretty fast. I was actually about to message them about why they hadn't shipped... It was priority and had tracking. Had an online label too so it's not like they paid at the post office and forgot to mark as shipped on eBay. Wtf.

The 2nd seller I had to ask. Also that package is coming UPS when I asked them to send USPS... I fully expect that item (old motherboard) to arrive in 1 million pieces.

My local game store got burgled. Thieves smashed a window with a rock, attempted and failed to smash the display case (but it was open from the back, this isn't a jewelery store), then made off with a Wii U console only and a 360. Crazy. The owner is happy they forgot to take anything valuable and had a 30% off "doorbuster" sale today, wooo.

I'm getting triggered at the amount of horizontal tearing in PS3 ports of games. Sonic Unleashed is tons better on 360, as is Asura's Wrath (still need to snag that on Xbox 360 to play through at some point). Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions has tons of tearing, I'll probably abandon playing that on PS3 to play on PC instead. frown That was the biggest reason I wasn't hunting for Sonic '06 on PS3, I had to assume it would make a dumpy game even more dumpy.

So I'm starting to get into retro PC RPGs, did I mention this here already? Sorry if I did. Just quickie, one of my favorites on DS is Orcs Vs. Elves which is a 1st person rogue like where monsters only move when you move. It's a short but fun game that reminds me of 90s PC gaming and the 3DO era. So One of the series I'm thinking about trying is Might & Magic. The PC games that are 1st person RPG games. It almost looks like these games are what Orcs Vs. Elves was inspired by. And anything else around that era that are really good PC RPGs. Gold Box SSRI games, Ultima VII. .

These are the style of games that I sorely skipped over. Any favorites?

Tekken 3 and tag tournament were amazing and still my fav fighters ever. I need to play 4-7, kinda drifted away from fighters after those for a long time. My brother and I had matches on those games that made the scenes in the matrix look like amateur hour lol. The team battle mode 8v8.. wow the stories lol. I still rrmember my lineup :P

Yeah the PS3 kinda sucks man. I put up with it because it had a lot of exclusives and I buy used a lot so it was tons easier to find a PS3 disc in good condition compared to 360 due to the mandatory anti-scratch coating on Blu-Ray .

The kind of person dumb enough to rob a store in the first place. I hope they get caught and go to jail.

Same..I usually chose 360 during that era for most games that came on both but still had more ps3 games probably for the rpg exclusives. I find I'm back to ps4 this gen but the one x could change that for multiplatform gams

Depends on the system's condition. Generally they read the same, but if the spinner's off tilt putting it vertical can help correct reading.

System is in great shape but no idea about the innards obviously. Just tested, it doesn't read PS1 game at all on it's belly. But auto loads when on its side.

It's probably a motor alignment issue if I had to guess, or maybe the laser motor itself operates better when it's flipped. Mine can read both without any issues, either way.

PS2s are finnicky pieces of crap. All I can say is to play and enjoy games on it while you can. Also it's a good thing that they are cheap, and lasers are readily available. Plus it's very easy to set it up to play games from an hdd. The one I'm using right now is probably on it's way out, but I'm gonna ride it till the laser dies.
