The Anthem of the Gamer.

The World is Saved is a new epic song and anthem for video game fans. Made in the pixel-art style of SNES (Super Nintendo) cutscenes, this video was a collaborative effort from IGN's Podcast Beyond community. IGN's Ryan Clements pulled together a small team of volunteers to animate a video for Danny Wiessner's latest single. The video debuted at the end of the live recording of Podcast Beyond Episode 200, which can be viewed here: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/118/1186511p1.html

Please support Danny by purchasing his song! Now on Itunes!

Well done

This reminds me of a gamers from 80's. Nowadays nobody look at the games, like he looked 30 years ago.

Just think about all those halo fan-boys, Wow additcs ... Toons of senseless fpp games. It makes me sick.

Back in the 80's it was just you, your controller and your TV.

Pretty nice animation, and song.
