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:

this, is by far the best gamer's anthem i have ever seen (this being the only one) the song to me, a true gamer is excatly what happens to me at end game. i defeat the evil, save the day, won the girl., and is renown by the people as a hero. I lean back in my chair, sigh, say "that is a great game" (depending on how the game actully was i might say that was a big waste of my time) then i walk away, or move on to something new, when i go to sleep that night i remember my adventures of that game and wonder, what would it be like if i try it harder or a differnet way. then as sure as the sun rises the next day, i leap back into that chair start up the game and start over. Execlent music, execlent graphics, and great story.
Keep It up!

The lyrics were completely true, the graphics were impressive, and the animation was great. However, I had thought it would be more.. epic. Too slow and.. there's a word for what I thought of it.. hmm.. country-ish? Southern? Cowboyish?
It's good video but I think the Scott Pilgrim (the game's) main theme is gonna remain the anthem for me.
