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

Gamers Anthem

Gamers such as myself may have actually gotten goosebumps from this.
Written by a one of us for us. I thought it was going to go into having a game a new set in your dreams as you go to sleep. But I did enjoy where it did go. Great score and epic lyrics, true to the geek-dom that is gaming greatness.
