They foster further discussion, allow us to understand competing points of view, and constantly remind us of why popular or unpopular opinions are what they are. Whether we believe in or do not believe in a certain opinion or stance, knowing that we have one and willing to share it makes all the difference.

We're concerned with researching. That's what makes us special, that's what drives us. We don't cover many news or reviews. Instead, our focus is not about how good or bad a game or company is, but rather about how that game or company affects the community and its denizens. Therefore, our aim is on facilitating questions, trying to find some sort of answer for them, and if not, then to establish the groundwork necessary so that we can address them in the future.
We love gaming. We love figuring it out. If you do as well, come write with us. At Project Cognizance, our focus is about asking questions and answering them. We're interested in not just the companies and the people that make up video games, but also the myriad of complex relationships that exist between them. We hope you do too. Come write with us.
