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

CL lulz time. So I drive out 30+ minutes to meet a guy to pick up a crt. About halfway there I get a message saying they dropped it. So I'm thinking okay I'll still take a look at it. So then I wait another 30 minutes and I'm about to leave before I get a call. I ask if they will come down on the price and the guy says he'd rather throw it out. I wait a bit and text that seeing how there is no way they fully tested it plus the wait and no way I could test it so I reoffered 60 percent or I'm leaving and I got a really fun and nasty reply.

Use Facebook marketplace instead, you will just have a younger set of idiots cursing you out.
CL is a relic of the past.

Lol. Yeah pretty much. If I had brought stuff to test it, then it might be a different story but I was expecting it to be in perfect working order and I definitely wasn't taking their word for it. Them not taking the offer probably saved me from myself a bit.

"I dropped it"

"I'll still buy it"

"I'd rather throw it out"

Bullcrap, my man. Bullcrap. You'd always rather pay someone to throw it out for you, so it's something else.

They sounded like a major butt-hole on the phone so there is that. I was due for this crap though, my previous combo of great experiences in a row was bound for a breaker. At least I picked up some crap from some stores since I was already in town.

Me: Crash Bandicoot sucks, why did it have to win GOTM?

Also Me: Plays until Switch battery runs out.

When Crash came out, a young Lunar thought the game was called Naughty Dog. Because what's a bandicoot?

Really love the portability but also the screen size of the Switch. Able to play whenever I have some time and I don't have to have my face right on the screen...

Yes but also other times.

Hmm.....$76 retail (pre-order price) DQXI Bring Arts figure for $40 on eBay. Seeeeems legit. Edit: A $90 if you are dumb enough to order from the US Square Enix store instead of sourcing it from Japan yourself...

I'm beginning to think I should make a video of the chaos of my room. That last deal from @Lunar got me thinking...

Nothing gold can stay. I'd rather not have to go through anything like that. And I won't!

Yup. Hopefully he has coverage. It's like $3 extra a month for personal belongings.

Yes, if this happened to me and I have it fully insured, I would just cash out and buy a house instead.

Starting over and build a small collection. Getting back everything is just gonna take too much time and effort!

Yeah the real dog would be replacing the impossibly rare stuff. I have a fair bit of anime in particular where I'd be crap out of luck.
