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: http://ps3.ign.com/articles/118/1186511p1.html

This is horrible! How am I supposed to criticise this!?!? I can't find a single flaw - the animation is smooth(even on the antique I call a computer), the sounds were synchronysed, the song was incredible and it perfectly explained why we gamers play. It's almost too good to be true.

YOU SIR/MADAM, ARE A GENIUS! This song represents absolutely everything that gaming is about. Loved every second of it. hope you make more.


At first I thought it was just an up beat song making fun of something, but then as it went on I realized it was an actual song the gave me shivers as to how you presented it's meaning. Very well done sir.

Incredible, gave me shivers.

I think this is going to be the first review in which I give somebody a 10. Absolutely amazing, terrific. I know exactly what this song is talking about, having completed many a RPG.
