new Thread Description
Wow, can't believe it's been more than a year since we started RTT. I feel like we have become a community of our own within GameTZ. We have our regulars and even some new comers. I hope 2018 brings us more like-minded retro gamers who will come here for a place of retro inspiration. When I started Retro Trade Thead (RTT), it was called "The Retro Trading Thread", kinda like how FB was "The Facebook", heh, I was just hoping for a group of retro gamers who share the passion and the thrill of collecting and playing Retro games. The result so far has exceeded my expectations and more. I am playing more retro games than ever and while my collecting is on and off, I know I have been enjoying more retro gaming in 2017 than my previous 5 years combined. I hope RTT members have similar experiences. 2018 will be an even better year, as we have established group events like RTT Secret Santa and our monthly Game of the Month, which is getting more popular as more people participate. I am hoping to bring RTT Podcast in 2018 where 2-3 RTT members will talk about monthly topics and other aspects of retro collecting.

Retro game buying and selling, collecting, playing, collectarding, upscaling, speedrunning....whatever your retro passion is, RTT will have a place for you and for everyone who participates in our discussions, whether occasionally or frequently, will continue to find value and fun in our thread.

Thank you for participating and making RTT the hottest topic every month in 2017!

Old Topic 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 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

I think I'm seriously considering dropping my PS4 Pro and just dumping like, serious money into this computer. And down the line getting a 4K monitor, maybe. I looked at the stack of PS4 games I've decided to keep:

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age
Final Fantasy X/X2 HD Remaster
Final Fantasy XV
Wolfenstein Double-Pack
Uncharted Collection
Mass Effect: Andromeda
Overwatch: GOTY Ed
Tales of Zestiria
Tales of Berseria
Yakuza 0
Yakuza Kiwami

Skyrim: Special Edition
South Park: The Fractured But Whole
Mega Man Legacy Collection
Mega Man Legacy Collection 2

If you see the common theme in this list, I think I made a terrible mistake.

They just threw an Ikea over the freeway here in Indy. I'm glad I was broke after the PS4 or I woulda been after going into Ikea. You actually did precisely what I was going to do with the entertainment center I was gonna put together, only you did black instead of white. I was considering some LED lighting at one point lol

Yeah, I mostly hunt for deals unless I'm really dying to support a release or watch something which is fairly uncommon. There is quite a bit I have that has been released on blu but it's like, well I paid $8 for all of Outlaw Star, $20 for Scrapped Princess etc... so I'm in no rush to pay the current blu prices on those. Don't even get me started on the Rurouni Kenshin OAV prices...

TZ and a couple local chains have been really good to good to me for getting so much to watch for cheap. Shout out to TZers @sailorneorune @monkeysmadness and @kevolones in particular. I still have everything I got from you all over the years here. :)

Oh and idk if you can really tell but this is with consolidating single sets. Like you only see two Flame of Recca dvd cases there but there are 10 dvds inside those cases. I have the original cases and artwork stored elsewhere.

Listed the PS4 Pro, I think it's happening lol. If someone was looking to upgrade to Pro and had a slim available, could probably work out a cash/trade combo, since I still have a moderate interest in finishing Yakuza 0 and Uncharted 4. Have it listed for $180 + PS4 Slim in Classifieds, or could do $160 plus a PS4 slim for someone in this thread.

@Gypsy didn't realize you finally got Macross. I hope you were able to pick it up reasonably. The ADV dub is not worth $300. broken heart

I did finally finish Pulseman. And it has aged reasonably well, but I can see where some of you got aggravated. I can burn through the first half of the game with relative ease, but then the rust really started to show. The latter half of Stage 6 and the whole of Stage 7 can cause a lot of headaches for new players or even those who remember it fondly from their youth but simply haven't played through it in a few years (ME!).

Still a solid 8 in my book. I should really try to finish Drill Dozer and HarmoKnight sometime.

I'll pick up a slim at a good deal later. Probably just hang onto Yakuza 0 and sell the rest of my games. Sadly I've got a pending trade I'm paying for next week for Nier Automata and DQ Heroes 1 and 2 for $55 that I won't have a system to play them on for quite a while lol

I did purge half of my DS collection but there are some worthy RPGs on DS. Having Chrono Trigger portable is awesome. I love the DS remake of FFIV. Then there are the DQ games, Yellow Brick Road which is a really good exclusive. And a handful of other less known personal favorites of mine. But then again I love RPGs and I love playing RPGs portable even more.

I understand where the $8 is coming from though. They probably have craptons of them already, a good portion of the ones that are tested as working end up being broken in some way and returned, they take up a lot of space and most people would trade it in with games and not notice that its so low for the console.

Heh it's not about fruitfulness for me. I know that there are a dozen or more Gen games I'll be buying eventually. And I'm a "if it had a hang tab, I must have a hangtab" guy. Having extras around allows me to bid on a mint everything except no hangtab. Instead of having to pass on that auction. Yes I realize I have a problem, but I embrace and love it. wry smile

Heh, I'm cheap. What I paid you for Ronin Warriors is the most I've ever paid for any one set (not that I'm complaining with the price, because it was awesome). I ended up getting the set of the first three new (hence the box) for $10 + shipping from the Macross web store. The rest I pieced together grabbing them off Amazon and eBay for somewhat reasonable prices. The one drawback of these discs is they crack easy as they were cheaply made and are single layer. I got a few with inner ring cracks, but I was able to replace all but one volume. I'd like to replace it but I couldn't find another copy of that volume online. It's not a huge deal, as I watched it already and everything played fine, I just have to be careful not to make it worse.

Too late to back out? They'd probably understand.

Used game store. That's what I do with anything worth less than $10 that I want gone. I get store credit to maximize and just grab newer games that I want (because vintage stuff is overpriced as hell).

He sent already, so that'll be a stretch.

It's okay, shouldn't lose much money on it.

If you're trying on gametz and assuming correctly you're selling to the wrong crowd for "whatever reasons they deem appropriate" then there's your problem right there.

If I didn't have 1. Social anxiety

And/or

2. A strict sense of fair trade

I could probably move anything I currently have in my apartment (video game related or electronics and media related) within reason for more than I paid here or wherever else I got it. I assume (perhaps incorrectly) that in New York people can also sell ice to Eskimos just like in and or around bigger cities in California.

The main things if I were trying to sell for the same or more that I couldn't are broken or damaged items. But most things on gametz are really good and most people here give at least a gametz discount.

The cart only Genesis games you mention are actually really cool but you're trying to sell to an overly saturated and cheap audience here. Not to mention kinda snotty about other people's items. To say liking certain generic games or commons is the equivalent of commiting social nerd suicide here. Which I could care less about since I love normal common stuff and I buy cheap crap all the time that I love and will never be ashamed that I'm not snootier lol.

But seriously that stuff is great give it a few days and it will move. Cmon people love umk3 and lots of people also love fatal fury 2 at least.

If @Tad is still collecting Genesis he would probably grab these games. I know I'm interested in your cib garbage and cart only as well. Plus Genesis has great games for kids and my nephews would love one I'll bet. Not saying IM buying this stuff but it is really good stuff no matter what you heard lol.

I'll take anything CIB I don't have on Genesis. I'm a non-discerning collectard. You can send them to me with the PS1 games raspberry

I just wish we (still) have a "banker" here at GTZ, someone who, preferably owns a gamestore, and will give $1 or $2 for commons.

If you were telling me that umk3 and fatal fury 2 could be added to our trade for 2 dollars a piece I would tell you add them to my tab good sir!

A banker I am not however 😉 But I do like cart games that I didn't get to own as a kid even without cib status especially 2 fun fighting games? Yes sir!
