Get games from Goozex

One of the oldest trading sites, GameTZ has one of the more effort-intensive systems we encountered. "Buyers" make a list of what they have/want, and the site matches them up with "sellers" who have it. However, at that point, it's up to the two people making the trade to barter between them until the deal is accepted, and then it's up to them to swap addresses and send the items.

That's a little more work than some of the other sites make you do, and finding a person who has the exact game you want AND wants the exact game you have can be tricky, even if the overall selection of games is better here than on any other site. But our bigger concern is that GameTZ also has the loosest controls on how to handle it when trades go wrong. You can definitely report bad traders, but you're still out of luck. Some of the other sites offer more security. This site relies upon community support rather than built-in failsafes.

It is cool that you can set up trades with an instant chat, though. Most other sites don't allow that. And if you're down with a little more leg work and a tad more risk, you've got a good chance of finding what you want and maybe making some friends as well.

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
