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!

perfect

i laugh at the people who dont play video games they say "i see no point of it" or some other bull they must have amazingly depressing lives or are scarded of change because like the song says "we are just here for the ride" we play video games to do stuff we cant do in life or we are just to lazy (nothing wrong with that) but we have reality boring old live we play video games o escape the dull sadness of waking up haveing breakfast and going to work WE PLAY TO LIVE ANOTHER LIFE thanks for reading and keep on playing:)

Truly how it feels.

This song conveys exatcly what it feels like to finish a game. For that and the amazing art you get maximum score. Not a flaw I could spot here. About the music itself it is also very good. Congratulations this is an awesome animation. All the gamers out there are proud of you.
