About New Normative

newnormativelogo-firstAs great at the world of gaming is, it still has problems.  Vulgar hostility in online gaming, poor working conditions at studios, a lack of equality across all channels, and poor character diversity are just some of the issues that plague gaming.  While things have certainly improved over the years, there’s still a long ways to go.

Enter New Normative.  While we don’t claim to have all the answers, we’re happy to share our opinions on the obstacles standing in the way of creating a better gaming environment.
