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

That sensation you're feeling, it's known as the Votening.

Okay! I need the help of some like-minded video game enthusiasts. My brother-in-law came over and I decided to pull out the ol' unmodified NES Classic Edition. Unfortunately, it only took a few minutes of sitting on the floor before I came to the undeniable conclusion that something here needs to change. frown

I want to buy a couple of wireless Nintendo Entertainment System styled controllers that, aesthetically speaking, are as close as possible to the real deal and yet have as little lag as possible. Does such a thing exist? If so, what do y'all recommend? surprise

Any 'n' all help would be greatly appreciated! smile

What you see as being defensive I feel is just standing up for what I feel is right. I read your other post as well and again I never said Streets of Rage is terrible far from it.

For the PulseMan vote I feel like we didn't have enough votes anyways which was wrong on many levels. If more people had voted I might have never gotten to play that gem. On the other hand I think 7 people total even played PulseMan which was also a step in the wrong direction.

Let's play together has to be a popularity contest on some level because it's one of those things that will bring us all together to play and converse. It's one of my favorite things I've been a part of in 2017 and will continue to be so in 2018 regardless of votes. And I will try my best to get more people interested in retro gaming and this thread over the next year. Part of that was getting people into a game I KNOW they will love. So yes I defend that position and am totally happy I got more people involved I'm hoping we have even more votes for next month, and after all DD not everyone who votes for Lets Play Together even ends up playing the chosen game.

Even though I didn't vote for Shadow Dancer I'm still going to end up playing through it, maybe even this month. So while I didn't choose that game your point and your passion to get people to try that game wasn't for nothing at least one person (myself) is going to play this game because you recommended it. The weird thing is I will also end up passing both Streets of Rage games AND Shining Force this month when I get around to them. I'm going to be having a blast this month even without playing a new game I've never played before. But I still believe Shining Force would have really got people into retro gaming that might not be anymore.

Time will tell though and I still have some ideas I wanna run by @Lunar to get more participation in this magical thread 😊 As well as fun stuff to make it better even if no one new ever stops by 😉

I don't think Shining Force is a game that gets people into retro gaming. Again, I think you're putting this up on a pedestal it doesn't belong, it's just us picking a game to play through, not everyone's gonna participate, that's life
