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:

Rated 5 / 5 stars

just wow

when i clicked on this and it started, I sighed in annoyance because it seemed like another Jab at us gamers and the starry-o typical thoughts on us gamers. But as i continued watching i was pleasantly surprised at what followed I believe that this is one of the best explanations why us gamers play games. Thank you for creating this.

That was great. That is exactly what I feel when I beat a video game. I think its because I get too in to my video games. Anyways the animation was good and I liked the song.
It was worth watching.

What I felt after listening to this...

The quest might be over,
The day might be won.
You might even think
"it's the end of my fun".

You live your real life
remembering quests
you slink in your seat
"is this all to this fest?"

But alas, "Hey, listen!"
Come hear me out!
Your journey isn't over,
The sequel's about!

Prepare your will,
your gun, or your blade.
More adventures await,
your legend...

once again to be made.
