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:

That was great. That is exactly what I feel when I beat a video game. I think its because I get too in to my video games. Anyways the animation was good and I liked the song.
It was worth watching.

What I felt after listening to this...

The quest might be over,
The day might be won.
You might even think
"it's the end of my fun".

You live your real life
remembering quests
you slink in your seat
"is this all to this fest?"

But alas, "Hey, listen!"
Come hear me out!
Your journey isn't over,
The sequel's about!

Prepare your will,
your gun, or your blade.
More adventures await,
your legend...

once again to be made.

Very Nice

Both the music and art convinced me to share the emotions of this character. I did feel a bit victorious and I did feel slightly depressed. While I convey different emotions after I complete a game, most likely due to me choosing the dark side whenever I get the chance. That and sometimes games are a tool for me to go crazy with my imagination so as soon as I hit the sack I dream of my own story rather than all I have achieved and experience. Well a mesh of it actually.

Well done. Good clip.
