Hey Everyone,I would first like to say, please do not take it personally if I decline an offer without sending a message. I receive on average 5-10 offers a day, sometimes more. With my work and school schedule, plus life, I can't check GameTZ every day. So sometimes I log on to like 50 offers. I try to respond when I can, but it's not always possible.
Also, if you send me a message, and just say "check my list". That leads me to believe that we have no matches most likely. I just do not have time to pour over 8 pages of your game collection. Please at least send me some sort of offer to get the ball rolling. This seems to happen a few times a week, so I had to mention it.
I will be the first to admit that I am a little hard to trade with. I've been collecting since about 1996. I've owned and played pretty much all the good, amazing, bad, rare, and grail games over the decades. I don't just collect/trade anymore because a game is rare, or good for the money. I collect to obtain games I owned in the past, that I consider the greatest of all-time. My goal is to own what I consider the greatest 150 console, and the greatest 50 PC games of all-time, and no more. Therefore, I have a very precise list of exactly what I want. So if it's not on my list, you can assume I have no desire to trade for it. Already played it most likely, and it didn't make my list.What I look For:First
, 99% of the time, I am looking for clean, complete games. They do not have to be gem mint, but well taken care of.Second
, No Greatest Hits, Best, etc... Second print runs.Third
, No previous rentals, unless they cleaned up really well. Stickers on CD's and Cart labels, have no appeal to me. The art these stickers cover, is part of the reason I collect physical titles.Fourth
, I just put everything in my "Available" list, because if the right game is offered, I will trade any game from my collection. This does not mean that I will trade anything you want just because you offer me a fair deal. Some games will only be available if you offer me a heavy hitter or two, that is high on my want list. For example, a English Dynastic Hero, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Last Blade AES, & many more...Finally
, If something in my available list has "Looking to Trade" in the comments, then I want it out of my collection. I'll trade it for probably anything on my want list.
