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

Yeah I'd probably say steam if I'm answering seriously. I have an embarrassingly large steam collection.

I still love Xboxlive I even search exclusively with Bing, but like @sharif said physical media is best at least whenever possible.

But I do appreciate Nintendo and Sony having digital content available too. If I had the Internet at home I might do something about the cool digital games available on Eshop 😊 And I wouldn't mind some more ps1 classics on a portable system.

Plus I still want a Switch, Wii U and a PS4 eventually (the ps4 I really only want for what I believe to be the best virtual reality at home so far, something I've been wanting to see since the early 90s) so all those systems have digital content available. Why not?

Any interest in a NES top loader + MM2 box/no manual? I bought this thinking it had the dogbone, but since its just the OG NES controller I'm OK with selling this now and re-buying later. I'd be looking for $110 shipped.

crap I'm having trouble with my vita memory card now. Read errors keep coming up. And it's an official 32gb too. Guess I will format it and hope it helps. if not then I have to buy a $35 8gb card. Hopefully it's just the card and not the Vita. I still have a few good games to finish on the Vita!!

Does the humble store act weird for anyone else? When I click the on sale section it just says over and over loading more great games and it grays and comes back over and over and I can't change pages.

NP I will just try format then buy an 8gb if I have to. Not a huge dealbreaker but sucks if I had to spend another $35. I thought about selling my Vita collection in a momentary rage.

I actually have a great gaming PC but still rather eshop because I can actually finish games due to the portability of my Switch. Last night I sat down in my office and played Doom on my TV then when my wife wanted me to come in the living room with her while she watched her tv show, I just picked up the Switch and sat on the couch and kept going.

8-bit Xmas 2017 is up for sale. It's a multicart containing all the previous 8-bit Xmas games which is nice because 2008 costs like $1000 alone now.

Thank you!!! I've been checking their Facebook page everyday. Snagged one along with some other games I've been meaning to get. $44 US in shipping! F!

Now I just need to snag a a Hyperkin Xbox One Duke controller and then I'm set. Any one have any info on this?


Edit: Also does anyone know if the Xmas carts light up on an Analogue NT Mini? What about an original NES? The site only states it lights up on the AVS.

I could prob keep a CRT in my living room, right after a divorce. I think OSSC is only $200ish. So like $18800 off give or take?

I would have said I was fine on original setups up until very recently. It started when I bought some hdretrovision component cables in a dark alley. I don't know about the snes, but these things make genesis look like 24k gold on either crt or lcd. The composite encoder is such crap on that system and I never realized. That was the gateway though and now I am mainlining ossc and scart like the rgb junkie I have become. @Gypsy has assured me that dvdo is a non-addictive alternative, so that will probably be my next stumble. A sad sad tale of falling from grace.
