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

Apple II and Amiga were both $1300 at retail but I'm pretty sure Apple sold better although both were no where near as popular as a DOS PC. Amiga was a gaming wonder in the PC world, I always wanted one.

So were you joking when you asked to see my 1cc Mushihime-sama Futari score? This game is brutal, I can't believe that Dodonpachi Resurrection is even harder, and there are two difficulties above what I am playing at. It's crazy how much precision you would need to build to 1cc these games. It's super fun and exhilarating to dodge and weave and try to perfect a play through, I am able to get almost through the third stage 1cc, but use a credit during that stage consistently. It's really fun to play, and I'll keep trying, but I am not sure I can 1cc this lol

I didn't, since I already have a copy. I just mentioned that it was the best priced game in his list.

Nah, I looked through the whole list of US released systems, none of the match the description. The super popular ones do not fit the criteria "DD never owned"

It's supposed to be a mainstream system, and we need to shift our thinking...

Also, ThinkGeek momentarily had some very expensive GameStop NES Classic "bundles". Wanted to get one of them with the Playing with Power book, but every time I had one checked out it removed it from my cart. One with some stupid Zelda crap errored out during check-out and the charge is pending in Paypal, but it was one of the less expensive options ($159 being "less expensive"). It'll probably be cancelled but we'll see. I'll probably sell the incoming used one if the new one ends up going through.
