What is Guilty Gear: Strive?

Fans of fighting games don't need to be introduced to the Guilty Gear series. Just don't ask them about the plot, or the connections between characters, because you'd be in for an hour-long lecture. Fortunately, you don't need any of it to enjoy the game, and the latest installment, Guilty Gear: Strive, will definitely be enjoyable. This is the seventh main installment, but rest assured, just as knowledge of the history of the series is not required, neither is familiarity with the details of previous installments.

How is Strive different from other Guilty Gears?

Guilty Gear: Strive is simply a better version of the same idea, which seems to go to 11, and comes with some really nice graphics. Dynamic arenas are a big novelty, thanks to which we can move a fight to another place. Other than that, the old rules apply, such as the tension bar, allowing you to perform stronger attacks, but also temporarily slowing time down.
