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

It didn't cover the cost completely; but, I picked up this here for what I thought was a pretty fair price. Nice haul on your end, though! Was that all purchased using eBay bucks?! shock

$15 off with eBay bucks, plus $75 in gift cards to blow, this was only about $5 out of pocket. Glad I bought it because the right neon red joycon that came with the Switch I ordered off eBay ended up being super flakey. Need to call up Nintendo to get an estimate on repair/replacement.

I tried my SNES Classic and wow, I'm in love! I was kinda worried it wouldn't work with Japanese roms that had translation patches applied, but it does, no problem. Wow, it's so awesome to have an entire library of fan translated roms, playing it on an official Nintendo product, with sharp colors on the big screen. All with a snappy interface that you can add box scans too! This is the emulation interface I've been waiting for forever. I can't wait for NES classic and N64 classic. I highly recommend this product to any retro lover to get an authentic feel at a fraction of the cost.

Dragon Warrior came first. Doesn't make it any good today raspberry I didn't think Lunar was bad though.

You opt into it somewhere on Ebay then you get 1% back on everything. Turn on all the Ebay marketing emails and cross your fingers and sometimes there are promotions for bigger percentages.

When there's no specials, you get 1% for all eBay purchases except certain gift cards sold by Paypal/eBay.

When there are cool specials, you get 6%, 8% or 10% eBay Bucks to spend. It maxes out at $500 per QUARTER and $100 per PURCHASE.

nice, but I think I'm done for the most part, buying expensive things on Ebay. Once I sell these games, and beef up my PS1 and PS2 collection a bit, I won't be needing Ebay much any more.

Now you're talking crap about Dragon Warrior after intentionally voting for a one dimensional game because it was only an hour long? Do you even still like video games?

Sorry if you were being sarcastic but I did play the original Dragon Warrior this year and despite a few minor flaws it's a pretty incredible accomplishment for being one of the first games to really be a traditional rpg. And it's fun. And the music is great. And it's challenging to a degree. Even the enemies are really cool.

If you don't like RPGs fine I get that, I don't particularly like fps games although there are a few I loved. But maybe just say you don't like them and move on.

Sir that is some beautiful stuff 😊

You know you're going to miss it right? Or are you thinking that once it's gone it will be kinda liberating?

Anyways good luck with your sale and I hope it helps you achieve your new goals 😊 Whatever they may be!
