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:

This video takes me back. It takes me back to my years on the Nintendo 64, fighting bowser with mario. It makes me remember that feeling of accomplishment i had at watching the final cutscene of every game i played, and feeling that sense of unhappiness because i knew that the adventure was over. But it also makes me happy. It gives me a sense of nostalgia of every adventure and every character i have used. I thank you. This is one of the best videos i have seen around.
