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

Gamers Anthem

Gamers such as myself may have actually gotten goosebumps from this.
Written by a one of us for us. I thought it was going to go into having a game a new set in your dreams as you go to sleep. But I did enjoy where it did go. Great score and epic lyrics, true to the geek-dom that is gaming greatness.

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.

~Slow Applause~

You EARNED this 10/10.
I only wish tomorrow was here so I could vote 5 again.
