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: es/118/1186511p1.html

This song... This FREAKING song stirs emotions deep within me and gives me gossebumps every single time I hear it. Sir, I salute you. You have not only managed to convey such meaning in these few words, you wrapped it in a cocoon of mind shattering sound.
