The game awards took place yesterday, and the top fighting game was Guilty Gear -STRIVE-. The Arc System Works fighting game took the top spot on the night. Below is the list of other games nominated with it:
- Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles
- Guilty Gear -Strive- - WINNER
- Melty Blood: Type Lumina
- Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
- Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown
To be honest, it never really felt like a competition as the popularity of Guilty Gear in comparison to the other games on the list is far and above. The game has received largely positive reviews, and it has been showcased in some of the biggest tournaments in the year, including Evo 2021 Online and Red Bull Kumite Las Vegas. It was a little surprising to see Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl on the list considering the time of its release, but all in all, it was a good night for GGST.
