GTZ has become a marketplace where the most commonly traded commodity is PalPal. 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 bought this one to mess around, it's not ideal but it works "OK". At the very least, it enables you to play devices with AV on HDMI displays

Also annoying is that, every time the source gets disconnected(reset system, turn off system etc), I need to unplug and replug the HDMI cable, I wonder if that's a manufacture issue.

My grandma is selling her ancient garage-sized house in Queens for more than that, what a crazy place to live. I'm not a huge fan of the south but it's cheeeap to live here. Is there some place where people walk/talk fast enough, but is also really cheap to live?

I haven't lived in Queens for years so I'm not privy to their market but there's plenty of real estate on Long Island for well under 600k. Even decent homes under 200k now.

I think it's pretty noticeable. The cord you got like has composite and svideo (lots of them do) so you can directly compare if you want.

Curious where you are referring to. The places I considered I looked at the prices and there's just no way it's that cheap.

Like I said I have no idea about Queens anymore but there seems to be more homes In the 200k and under rande out in Middle Suffolk County. Towns like Coram, Middle Island, Bellport, Mastic, Shirley stick out. Not the greatest but they're improving for sure. Patchougue is constantly listed as an "up and coming " neighborhood but the prices are slowly rising in response.

Ah, I was looking to stay closer to the city and Queens. And when we do move(probably in 2-4 years), the main thing we would be looking at is school district.

I have updated OP so far with @Antipop, @DefaultGen and @sharif's game rooms. I think there are some other pics peppered throughout the thread so I won't be looking for them but if you want to share(and I think you should! untidy or tidy doesn't matter!), send me a PM to put your pics in the OP.

If you're like me, I just love to see what other people have and how they set it up.

It may not be much compared to everyone else's rooms up there, but I am pretty damn proud of this setup. Took systems pic a few weeks ago after refurbishing the stereo equalizer under the TV and moving the 3DO and PCE to fit everything. Only other change of note since I posted this last year is that the Wii U is gone, the PS4 replaced it, and we added a Vita and Vita TV.. we got s little Sony Fever late into 2016... The open cube space along the bottom now has a basket to hide the power strip/extension cables in that spot, now, too. Thank goodness my wife is in on all of this and helps keep it in check. This is our living room in a 1 bedroom apartment, so it needs to be presentable and a little less blatant that it's a game room. Someday we'll have a separate space for this so we can go nuts, but for now, it's a bit reserved.

Our downsizing shows with the shelving, but honestly, I'm pretty pleased with it and the imports look nice. Loose hucards are in the old Pokemon deck box.

Still cool! my wife (and me to a somewhat lesser extent) has an on/off fascination with CED and LD. Because of space, we have our players stored away for now, but have a modest little collection of laserdiscs and CED discs, too. They still look pretty good, though. Well, not the CED ones, lol.

CED is atrocious lol. You will never mistake an LD for a BD but they still look damn good with the right equipment.

I see you got your shelves from walmart too. Not going to show off much of my room, since i'm still working on it(i'm in the process of converting my garage turned storage room into a game room, but it's proving more difficult than i thought), but here's part of my collection:

Yeah, those media shelves from Walmart do the trick perfectly. I work at Target and we don't carry anything that works as well unfortunately.

No I'm pretty sure @creagan is right, it's just one game. I was really disappointed as well.

Seven-Disc Special Music Album

Disc 1: Darius (Arcade Version, Game Boy Version)
Disc 2: Darius II (Arcade Version)
Disc 3: Darius Gaiden (Arcade Version)
Disc 4: G Darius (Arcade Version)
Disc 5: Darius Twin (Domestic Version, Overseas Version)
Disc 6: Darius Force, Sagaia (Consumer Version / Overseas Version Darius II)
Disc 7: Mobile Version Darius, New Arrange Music, etc.

Original Darius for the First-Time as a Disc-Based Package

The first time the original Darius is released on disc for a home game console, realized thanks to the help of Hamster, who manage the Arcade Archives game download service. This is the Arcade Archives version of Darius with the cabinet instructions panel display added to create a more arcade-like atmosphere.

Interview Booklet and Super Play Blu-ray Disc

The interview booklet contains 32 pages of interviews with Darius series staff. The Blu-ray disc contains super play videos of the PlayStation 4 version of Darius, as well as the arcade versions of Darius Gaiden and G Darius.

I'm so glad that DS was localized and released physically because well shmups almost always get cheap here before they go up. For quite awhile it was $2.99 at Gamestop (for the standard edition) and that's when I bought it.

Yeah it looked great. I'm just thinking when I play Shining in the Darkness it might look nice to unblur it. How much better did it look to you over composite?

I'll post some comparison videos. I can't natively hook up AV to my monitor so I'll test both with my Samsung 32" LCD.

I also nabbed a nifty device DVDO VP20 from @Gypsy, so will post differences of that when I get it and have it tested.

I am hoping it will play nicely(though I don't think it will) with capture devices like Elgato HD.

If your display has component inputs you can get one of those $50 SCART-to-Component boxes on Ebay and a $5 Genesis SCART cable on AliExpress. That would be the low budget RGB option. Shining in the Darkness is yes

Usually just some minor tweaking to get the colours right.

Elgato is a really good brand. I was reading a thread awhile ago where someone was having issues but they were using a different brand.

It certainly is a lot easier when you can just plug everything into the tv. Now I get to make my own cord (fun and not being sarcastic) to have RGB on my HD CRT. Long term plan is buying an OSSC next batch and eventually a VP50Pro and I'll have two separate set-ups for different games.

Oh and despite all my rambling and focus on this stuff, I do actually play games (lol).

yeah I mean it's Falcom so it's great! Glad they are still making RPGs.

Does anyone play full RPGs through emulation? Or are you adamant about "owning" something physical. Does it feel better to play legit? I ask this bc I am mulling over my SNES/gen/and Sega CD portions of my collections. Well at least as I begin to dive into them. I remember I beat Shining Force II completely on my ipod touch. And when I finally got my SNES in I am just not feeling the same whatever magic feeling above just playing on a little phone. It's not like I'm losing interest in games, I still really dig Breath of Fire on gba, Skies of Arcadia on DC, and Super Mario 64 on N64 all of which I'm playing now.

Maybe I'm slightly burnt out and it's just the 16 bit stuff is the first to suffer for it. I dunno so I thought I'd ask what people thought about playing a legit SNES RPG on the system vs playing on a tiny screen portable emulating it.

I get more enjoyment playing the real thing. It's a combination of not having a menu full of 1,000 games that makes me want to swap games every 6 minutes and probably appreciating the game more because I paid money to play it. No temptation to alt-tab and do something else or multitask or use save states/increase speed to cheat.

Yeah I mean those old jrpgs are often long and whackamole npc to figure out where to go, it can be easy to burn out on them. I find that I will go through spurts where I play a few jrpgs in a row but then none for awhile.

I don't really emulate so I can't speak to that. A friend of mine does a lot of emulating and never finishing games. Idk if that's a common problem or what, maybe for some people having access to all games creates a situation where it's hard to decide and/or stick on one game.

I might just have to collect only the very tippy top games on SNES. It might be a matter of Mystic Quest just isn't a good game. But those first few hours of my nostalgia for the game were. Rebuying these games I'm finding out what actually is a good game.

Also I think I'm a handheld gamer. As I own handheld versions of many games like Breath of Fire, Zelda, and love em. I wish more SNES RPGS got ported to GBA officially.
