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

Wow. Had it in my cart, had to change billing address, went to sold out. Couldn't order in the car because my wallet was at home.

Guess that's destiny. Oh well, still have my backup plan.

Nah. I know I don't like it. Had it before and don't even remember exactly what I sold it for but it wasn't worth much at the time.

Been watching it. I'm comparing the results of this and gauging if I want to sell mine.

So reluctant to sell stuff like this since it's so hard to get one in the condition I like.

Speaking of Holy Pail, I bet a few of you(not @DefaultGen) still need this for your set.
Price has dramatically dropped for this, I guess when people saw that it was going for $400+ CIB, they dusted off their copy.

I was trading a manual-less copy for $200-$250 a year or so ago.

Yeah, I've seen that happen before when something sells for a crazy price. Mostly with dvd/bd sets.

As long as you know who to talk to when you make that decision.

Speaking of sellers getting stupid amounts of money for stuff check this guy out. https://www.ebay.com/sch/tyler48838/m.html?item=25...

$40 for Parasite Eve, $150 for Thunder Force V, $100 for King's Field 2, $100 for Wild Arms, $75 for Guardian's Crusade, $150 for Dino Crisis 2.

Ridiculous. He should rebuy those games and list them. He could be a fudging alchemist. I wonder how many won't pay.

Meanwhile no one bid vs me on this - http://www.ebay.com/itm/152621995372

Man, I bought Ultimate Alliance on PC as sort of a game of chicken, test the waters and refund it and wait for a sale and just finish it on the 360, but I'll be fudgeed if it isn't actually a LOOOOOOT nicer on PC. Early on it was getting dumped on in reviews due to unpatched bugs, and there's still a few oddities but largely it's a very nice port now. Getting out of the Sub-30FPS realm really makes a load of difference.

8 hours of Yakuza 0 today and I did like...3 things to actually progress the game. Love it.

@Lunar If I had good stuff to trade I would, and I can't really make a $ offer either currently. I finally paid the guy on PCEFX for Terraforming and Star Parodier. Also I'm looking to import some anime from Australia. eBay buttheads have taken a series to the point where it's going to be less than 1/5 the price to import 4 box sets from Australia with crazy Australian shipping than it is to buy the US dvds. @sailorneorune trigger warning.

It used to be that I could recommend getting the same games on Genesis when applicable and it would be way cheaper but lol 2017.

With patience the Japanese versions are certainly a bit cheap on average. Of course it can't compare to some oceanic gaps like Keio.
