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:

I don't feel so bad anymore.

I always felt lacking at the end of a game and felt kinda like I wasted time, but this video reminded me why I played video games in the first place. The story, the gameplay, the people--player & NPC, and it's all for the ride. I feel much better.
