new Thread 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 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

I get to play with the red and blue plastic pew pews.

By the way, Strikers III on iOS or Android is fantastic. I don't know why we spend hundreds on home console pew pews anymore.

Is the LRG bubble bursting? surprise Only Wonder Boy and Night Trap have been really hard to grab recently I think. Even Ys was gettable if you were there when it went up. If anyone needs me to get an LRG game, I'm always awake and at work when they go up even if I don't always want them.
The ps4 collectors edition everyone was giving him needless crap for? Where?

Screw eBay and all that drama, you should just have an auction here with 210 starting bid for the bundle. That way you would make more and have less hassle.

I'd rather just sell it here but I don't think many people are still looking for a Wii U.

Well the bundle you're selling is decent and if @whitefire s auction is anything to go by if you post it and it's good they is gon' bid and bid high. i would buy it of course too at that price but I don't have money like that right now. That's why I'm saying an auction is your best bet. 210 is a great price point it's complete right? I'm thinking you probably get people competing and all that, have a 15 minute window ending time and people will bid. I haven't done the math or priced a Wii U recently but I think you'd get more than 210 easy. And they'd pay for shipping.

Won those projectors, pretty excited about it. Out now buying stuff to make my own screen. I'll be sure to post pics once it's all set-up. Probably going a slightly cheaper route on the speakers. $500 range. The ones wouldn't be a final choice anyway, so since I'm going for a stop gap, I figured I might as well pay a bit less.
