  • Each game is assigned a point value based on its rarity and cost
  • The Advanced Search feature is best for finding specific titles - I prefer being able to search within a certain platform, for a certain developer
  • While it is not required, Goozex suggests getting a tracking number, which I've found to be great as both a sender and recipient - it is nice to know when someone receives the game I've sent, and I like knowing where the game I've ordered currently is
  • I left negative feedback, and the user was quick to resolve the issue with me
  • I do not always recommend the site to friends, since not everyone likes paying postage out of pocket, on top of buying trade tokens to request games, but for the correct crowd, Goozex is a wonderful site to try swapping games

      Goozex.com is a site devoted to swapping video games from a wide range of platforms. While it was originally only intended for more recent systems (PlayStation One and newer), the site eventually enabled users to trade any game from any console of any age. Even the old Atari and Genesis games are available for trading. Each game is assigned a point value based on its rarity and cost. Points are attained either by trading your own games to other users or purchasing them through the site’s shop. To request a game, a user must also have a token for trading, which must be purchased from the site at $1 each.

      Navigating Goozex.com is easy enough. The games are divided by platform, then by most recently posted. There is also a search feature, for anyone searching


      for specific games. However, the search feature is very basic and will miss titles if Goozex spells it one certain way (such as with a hyphen). The Advanced Search feature is best for finding specific titles - I prefer being able to search within a certain platform, for a certain developer.

      Trading with other users is fairly easy as well. Once a request is made, if someone has the game available for trade they will be contacted by the site. At that point, they have to mail the game to the requester within a certain time frame. Usually the people I request games from mail them within 2-3 days. While it is not required, Goozex suggests getting a tracking number, which I’ve found to be great as both a sender and recipient - it is nice ...


      • to know when someone receives the game I’ve sent, and I like knowing where the game I’ve ordered currently is.

        Occasionally, users will send a broken or pirated game. Goozex has a feedback system in place to help prevent this. One user sent me a broken PlayStation game, and while I did my best to get it to work, it was beyond repair. I left negative feedback, and the user was quick to resolve the issue with me. There was no additional hassle, no extra work on my end, just a quick and easy resolution to the issue. Likewise, users can “tip” additional points to someone who sends a game if they feel the sender passed along an especially good copy of the game, or if they feel especially charitable. It’s a very pleasant surprise to

        find that a recipient sent additional points!

        Overall, Goozex is a great site for gamers with a pile of games they’ll never use. While selling those games may still be the most profitable round, trading them on Goozex makes more money than trading them at GameStop or similar game stores, and it allows a user to save up points towards a specific game they may not be able to find elsewhere. The site is user-friendly overall, with a few clunky features (you cannot browse in multiple tabs; it defaults to whatever was last clicked every time), and trading rarely has any problems. I do not always recommend the site to friends, since not everyone likes paying postage out of pocket, on top of buying trade tokens to request games, but for the correct crowd, Goozex is a wonderful site to try swapping games.
