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

Well, alright! I'm more than happy to be counted wrong on that one. But, it just begs the question that much more: since its inception of the cartridge-based handheld system way back in 1989, why did Nintendo Entertainment System make all but OOONE of their portable systems region-free? What wrongs did we do to incur the wrath of the region-locked gods?! frown

It's a...it's another Zelda clone. But, it's a really good one by Hudson Soft -- the company with the little bee as its mascot -- so, you know it's quality. I just want it to win so more people can check it out and enjoy it. Lord knows everyone -- and I mean EVERYONE -- has played The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Super Nintendo). frown

I doubt I'd play either this month so not sure I should even vote. I've beat Zelda several times so not much interest doing it again. And I have no way to play Neutopia without spending money that I don't have right now.

@Cheap Bastards: Buy Neutopia (NEC TurboGrafx-16) on the PlayStation Network for the same price as a Big Mac meal.

@Lunar: Don't deny your true feelings. You know that The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Super Nintendo) is the better video game of the two. But, you also know that the true heir to next month's RTT Let's Play Together Game of the Month is Neutopia (NEC TurboGrafx-16). Follow your heart. Do what you know is right. love love love

Vote for Zelda 😍

I can't afford to get internet at my house right now so I have no way to even download this game and play it either. Plus pretty much everyone has Zelda and CAN play it. At least you would be able to play it.

Man, tight race AGAIN. I could play either without doging much but Neutopia would be an actual new experience, so that's pretty exciting for me.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Super Nintendo) is an amazing, fantastic, and absolutely incredible video game. It has more than earned its place in the hallowed grounds of GOAT. Nobody's denying that, least of all me. yes

But, in addition to experiencing one particular video game together at the same time, the reason @Lunar started up the RTT Let's Play Together Game of the Month is to open our eyes to things some of us may not have known about. That's where Neutopia (NEC TurboGrafx-16) fits in perfectly. Back in the day, it originally came out on a home console virtually nobody had and, as a result, virtually nobody was able to play it. So, let's fix that: right here and right now, thanks to the power of modern digital services such as on Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, and PlayStation Network for, literally, the price of a McDonald's Big Mac meal. yes

Again, is The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Super Nintendo) the better video game? Yes. But, at the same time, is Neutopia (NEC TurboGrafx-16) still a really fun video game that more people need to check out for themselves? Yes. It's as simple as that. wink yes
