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:

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Speaks to gamers for definate :)

Not only an awsome sounding song, also relatable, and cool artwok.
I'm sure all gamers can say they spend a fair amount of their time constantly trying to get past a part in a game, and when they do SUCCESS!....but sadness because now it's over, hehe i often limit my game playing when i near the end just because i don't want it to end ^_^
....hmmm could this song end the bloodbath known as the console war?

This song reminds me of why we gamers game.

I remember when I was just a little kid playing my first video game, which was Super Mario World 3 for the Nintendo Game Boy Advanced. I would strain my eyes under a lamp for hours on end trying to find the princess. When I finally did so, I felt so happy. Then I realized that there were 100 other levels that I missed when I skipped into the last world using the keyhole from world two, level one. I went back and played all of the levels. I still wish that more wholesome games like that existed on the planet. I also loved playing the Megaman Battle Network series, Pokemon (GBA), and other games that were awesome.

I liked this, thumbs up!

Theres always disappointment when you achieve the completion of a game, but then you start remembering the journey and it makes it all worth while.

Thats why cheaters don't enjoy games.

Rated 5 / 5 stars

And this is why...

...We play games more than once. It's all about doing it better, faster, more heroic; it's mostly about reliving the experiences that the game brought us, but it's never quite as good as the first time around.
