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:

Deeper than anything else on Newgrounds

I think I could apply every line of this to various situations of life, not just video games.

But even about video games, This was absolutely incredible. I can honestly, not through peer pressure, give this a 10. Even the pixily graphics fit well. I don't know if you meant the art that way or better, but it turned out incredible.

Thank you so much for this Jewel, I hope there's a download soon.

I don't feel so bad anymore.

I always felt lacking at the end of a game and felt kinda like I wasted time, but this video reminded me why I played video games in the first place. The story, the gameplay, the people--player & NPC, and it's all for the ride. I feel much better.

Agreeing with InnocentDevil306

Very much so an anthem to gamers far and wide. Impressive work with the artwork too, it reminded me of the same images that pop into mind when playing games like Final Fantasy or Breath of Fire during awesome cutscenes.
