Trade Games/Books for my VN Collection! (US only sorry)

Recommended Posts

So I'm getting married in 2 months.

While my wife enjoys video games and doesn't mind me playing them one bit, I just don't feel like the VNs I own are something I'm going to want to play once we're living together. Nor do I think I'll ever have the time to sit down and read through any of them.

Honestly I was considering just throwing them away. That might sound horrific, but I don't have the boxes or manuals for any of them so I just have a bunch of naked (official) DVDs in a case, so I can't really sell them. I mean I could, but I feel like I wouldn't get a very nice price for the set and selling them one by one would be a huge pain and not worth it in the end.


Then a thought came to me: how about instead of selling them I pass them on to someone else who will enjoy them?

And so I would like to offer a chance to one lucky Fuwan to receive my collection of Japanese all-ages VNs (sorry no adult stuff in my collection). The contents are as follows (note as I said all of these are just the discs, no box or manual for any)

PS2 Higurashi Matsuri (w/ 2 disc soundtrack) (this is the Higurashi PS2 game that was released before Part 8 was out, so it has a different ending than the rest of the series. If you want the real ending you have to buy Higurashi Append separately.)

(Note also that Japanese PS1/2 games will only work with Japanese region PS2/1s and that Key PC games need to be patched to work with non-Japanese PCs)

PS2 Haru no Ashioto (https://vndb.org/v179)

PS1 Hiza no Ue no Partner (a raising sim sort of like Princess Maker except you're raising 3 adorable cat girls. I never got around to trying it out it just looked cute)

PS1 Kagayaku Kisetsu he (https://vndb.org/v51)

PS2 Galaxy Angel (https://vndb.org/v860)

PS2 Kanon (https://vndb.org/v33)

PS2 Te no Hira wo Taiyou ni (https://vndb.org/v1113)

PS2 Memories Off Duet (https://vndb.org/r26470)

PC Rewrite (requires Japanese PC or patch) (w/soundtrack)

PS2 Clannad (https://vndb.org/v4)

PS2 Mai-Hime (https://vndb.org/v65)

PS2 Brighter Than Dawning Blue (https://vndb.org/v232)

PS2 Iris (https://vndb.org/v2312)

PC Symphonic Rain (w/ special ost)

PS1 Sister Princess (https://vndb.org/v4681)

PC Little Busters (https://vndb.org/v5)

PC Angel Beats (requires Japanese PC or patch) (w/ 2 osts) (https://vndb.org/v13774)

Now while I don't want to sell these I also don't want to just give them away. Instead I want to give you something you can enjoy and I'd like to receive something I can enjoy in exchange!

The two things I'd love to receive in return are games or books.

What kinds of games? Either US or Japanese PS1/2 or DS games or US 3DS games. I like RPGs and horror games especially, though I'm willing to consider all kinds of offers.

As for books I'd like complete series of novels either Japanese or English. I hate having to buy pieces of a series so it's all or nothing. I like sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mystery... honestly any good novel series could catch my eye.

Though I'm offering 16 games, some of which were quite expensive when I bought them and which you will be getting without needing to pay shipping like you would if you were to try to get them from Japan, I am not asking for a completely equal exchange. These are naked disks and there's a fair chance you may not like all of them (though I did pick all the games (minus the cat-raising one) from lists of highly rated VNs) so I'm not going to be too greedy. But please make fair offers.

I would feel bad making you bid against each other which I think would just cause bad feelings so what I'm going to do is give it a week. At the end of a week I will choose the person who has made the most interesting and fair offer (or an offer I found to be exceedingly interesting or exceedingly fair) and communicate with that person to set up the shipment.

During the week I'll pop in to let people know if some of the things I'm being offered are things I already own, just to keep things fair.


(DVDs or Blu-Rays of classic black and white horror films would also be appreciated)

What kind of games do you already have (US)?  I do have old PS1/2, DS, and 3DS games I'm not really playing anymore that I might want to trade.  But it'd be kinda pointless if you already played most of what I have in my collection already.

It'd probably be better if I just put up a wishlist. Between the games I own currently, the games I've played in the past and don't wish to own again, and the games I'm just not very interested in there is a pretty specific set left so I'll just make a list.

Here's a list of pretty much every game I'd be looking for the US version of:


If there are awesome games that aren't on that list just assume I either A) own them already in English or Japanese or B) have already played them/do not wish to own them at this point.

I decided to just make a list of games I'd be willing to part with for your trade.  There seems to be a couple on there that matches your wishlist.  So, you can pick the amount of titles you think would be a fair trade, and we can come to an agreement we're both happy with in pm later if you decide to trade with me. :sachi:
