There's gotta be something seriously wrong with me...I favorite'd this piece YEARS ago...and just going through the list of my favorites since getting a new PC I discovered that I didn't comment on this.
The homage paid to the original is OBVIOUS! No one can deny that this "tribute" to the original is absolutely stunning. Whereas others would say that the original is much better...blah blah blah...or that OC artists got it nailed. No. This unique take on such a great childhood gamers melody, doesn't go down without a FIGHT!
Loved it then, LOVING it now!
