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

So, I finally got my last game from my Friday July the 14th GameStop order yesterday and Enchanted Arms PS3 arrived complete.
So my final completeness tally of the 16 preowned games I ordered online is:
Disc only, wrong case & no manual 7/16 + disc only, no case & no manual 1/16 : 8/16 50%
Disc & Case, No Manual: 3/16 18.75%
Complete (Disc, Correct Case & Manual): 5/16 31.25%

I had 4/12 come in disc only. One of the cases fooled me because at first glance it looks legit until you look at the spine and the back, it's from another game shop.

For two bucks, I can't be bothered to give a crap.

Looking at that PS1 list just made me notice that the Koudelka and Metal Gear Solid that I just found
where I put them recently but picked up years ago was not their original or a different format.
Was there PS1 games made for/in PS2 sized cases? Or are these custom?
I had stored them with some of my PS2 games because of that reason. My Koudelka has the correct PS1 size manual but is in a PS2 type/sized case with the PS2 sized cover. And my Metal Gear Solid is in a PS2 type/sized case with cover with a PS2 sized manual.

I'd assume the cases are custom, unless it's a foreign release.

Nah, that Metal Gear Solid was part of the PS2 MGS Trilogy, MGS of course being a lowly Playstation game, but they had to print it in the same form factor as PS2 games so they could fit them properly in the same box.

Thanks for the information. Seems like Koudelka is a custom case that someone did a nice job on.

And thanks, this matches it perfectly and that's interesting that they did that. Looking into it more, apparently, It's the only one I have from the PS version of Essential Collection and I just happen to have Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance from the XBOX version of the Essential Collection. And the original version of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty for PS2.

I miss the PS3 days. Where they made a new game BEFORE they made the HD remasters.

'Course, now Konami makes jack crap. Guess that showed them.

Still some nice fairly priced games though. Devil Crash is tempting and if I had an arcade card I'd get Popful but I need to buy that card first.

lol, it reminded me of a message a guy sent. When I was hunting Sega Dreamcast Skies, I sent an innocent little message with potential trade:

"Interested in some sort of trade? I have DKC 2 and 3 CIBs"

he replied "We've spoke before on other sites and I've visited your site. We are basically trying to do the same thing. Thanks but I'll pass"

"We are basically trying to do the same thing."

You mean looking to trade on GAME TRADE ZONE? Not sure what else you think "we" are trying to do.

DKC 2 and 3 CIBs are worth more than Skies...

God dam it, you ever set aside a game then when you go look for that game, it's specifically hard to find, because of course you set it separately in that special place. dead face

Lol, I remember you telling me about this crap before. When you told me who it was lets just say I wasn't surprised one bit.

Texel density, color count, alpha and blending are easily my top 3 pet peeve for "retro" games.

Most indie retro roguelike fanboys seem to forget that those old devs were trying super effing hard (on some games anyway) within the limits that were enforced upon them by the hardware. Whereas most of (not all) the huge wave of garbage infecting steam and gog are lazy cash grabs exploiting a market.
