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!

Rated 5 / 5 stars

The first time I watched this my memory flooded with all my gaming experiences, from Bomber-man to Legend of Zelda... 'sigh' I actually did cry watching this and I don't care how much of a nerd that makes me it's experiences like this that make me feel like a part of something bigger and more defined. It's so beautiful just seeing the end of all your accomplishments come to fruition.

You take all of your efforts and what to you get if not the amazing feeling deep inside of amazement. Games tat can give you that feeling are better than any movie or book. Because while you are along for the ride in all three, video games incorporate you into the success of the main character, and make you feel amazed when he succeeds, because in turn you succeeded.

That's what makes video games amazing. Thank you for capurign what all true gamers feel deep within my friends. Thank you.
