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:

BE MY GAMER SONG TILL I DIE. the art was beautiful and the song it self was very awesome. but it's also true to why gamers play games. we play for the end, to have the experience in the first place, not for quick fun or anything else. we take away something more and learn more about ourselves. thats what video games are really all about.

also the pain of your eyes/brain hurting and stomach empty is for only beginner gamers. not for the vets of games.

This song will go down in internet history.

An absolutely beautiful and instantly classic rendition about what goes on in the mind of a gamer.

The lyrics were powerful, the visuals breathtaking, the vocals and instrumentals incredible. My only complaint is that this submission did not receive the first place which I wholeheartedly feel it deserves.

What more can be said? If gaming plays an important role in your life, you must watch this video, for spoken words have never been truer.

It's not my style, really, but IT IS EPIC, and for that I can't vote 4 or 9 or lower...
Besides... I've never seen a musical animation about the epic experiences of a true Gamer.... so.. yeah, it's pretty cool...
Grats the FP and the awesome epicness you did an outstanding job :D
