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

That's pretty cool, the guy I talked to yesterday probably thought he lost me as a customer actually.

But with that glass case full of nes games and the one right next to it half full of snes and N64 games I know I'm going to be back there again. Plus I might have to buy retro games of the month to play from there 😍

Btw do they at least pay you fairly for your excess bulk or is it $3.00 each for your sealed ps4 games like I got yesterday?

Posted a bunch of games, cheapo's and some decent ones over in Classified Marketplace. Around 300 games or so in a giant post. Mostly for sale but will take trades for anything on my wantlist or maybe for shmups I don't already own.

@FrictionPin nice lemme go check that out. 😊

@Lunar the top one is the brightest nicest clearest. Are they all the same or something? And that was just a trick question?

I think #3 is clearly the worst. It's obvious if you look at the mountain peak in the background, it's much blurrier. #1 looks better than #2. #2 has a little more color bleed between pixels. Look at the bottom of the closest enemy. It's a better defined line in #1 and slightly redder under #2.

I think they were all taken at the same pause point but the bottom screen for sure is different it says pause right on it. And the top one does seem the brightest and clearest idk.

It's hard to tell in those shots but I'd probably lean towards the middle one. The first one is over saturated and bright, washing out the background colors, the bottom one is too smoothed out for my taste.

US sets are fun. Every good console in Japan has like 400 visual novels and RPGs I can't play.

Go for a Japanese Vita full set. I've been a full set collector in many things over the years but for whatever reason its never appealed to me in video game collecting for whatever reason. I will say I'm tempted to do a US Switch set though down the road. The small cases and cartridge media make it an actual possibility but not at retail prices this new in the lifespan.

Funny, I was going to say #3 is the best, but it is between that and #1

The aspect ratio of #1 is different in addition to the brightness. Lunar, I think you're asking us to critique your settings as much as the mystery hardware behind it raspberry

Alright, here's the reveal.

#1 - XRGB Mini Framemeister (Firebrand profile - 25GEN5XU)

#2 - DVDO VP30 w/ABT-102 Card (Game Mode 1) - This is probably the closest to FM

#3 - DVDO VP30 w/ABT-102 Card (Game Mode 2) - Smoothed edges
