I've been collecting games for many years, focusing primarily on Nintendo items. I grew up playing NES and Super Nintendo, so I have a particular fondness for those systems. I carry my Nintendo Power Super Power Club Card in my wallet where most people keep pictures of their family. My game collection is rather overwhelming, so I would rather focus on connecting other gamers with the games they love than to continue hoarding.

I have a lot of games on my available list. I'm not bragging about that -- in fact, it's rather dismaying. Please don't be afraid to ask about getting multiple games at once.

I have been selling all sorts of games/stuff on eBay for the few years, and I am very happy to have discovered GTZ. I'm hoping this site can be a more direct forum for trading and selling games. I pride myself on being honest with my customers, shipping quickly, and packaging well. I am happy to email pictures of any of my games.

Primarily, I am looking to sell my items.

I'm happy to ship internationally as long as the buyer is willing to compensate for actual shipping costs.

If you are looking for something, feel free to ask -- I may not have had time yet to add it to my list.

-Please, please submit an offer *amount* if asking to buy an item(s). I want to try to get back to you as soon as possible, but getting questions like, "How much do you want for this?" really slow things down on my end. As this a site for gamers trading with gamers, I assume that most traders have a basic idea of going prices on games. I'm not the type of person who would try to ask for way more than an item is worth, and at the same time I would hope you wouldn't expect me to sell for way less than it's worth. That being said, determining a fair value takes some time and research on my end. Presumably if you are looking for a given game, you've probably put some thought into how much it's going for and how much you're looking spend -- let's start from there. Typically, I consult various sites to see what a similar item in a similar condition is going for. Since there's no middleman to take a cut (unless PayPal is involved), and the whole process should be more convenient for both traders, I am more than happy to sell something for somewhat below the average selling price.

This is especially prudent if you are asking about multiple items. I would love to sell you a big bulk lot of 30 games. But if you are serious about buying those 30 games, I just ask that you take some time on your end to think about a reasonable offer. It's extraordinarily time-consuming to quote you a price if you select half of the items on my available list and just ask "how much?" (this has happened to me a lot). Don't be surprised if I don't get around to responding to those offers. On my end, I want to know the other trader is serious about making the trade happen before spending a whole bunch of time researching prices on multiple items. In general, unless I'm desperately trying to clean house (which does happen from time to time) you can safely assume I'm not going to blindly sell valuable things for fire-sale prices.
