pretty cool song
hey this was pretty cool, the song pretty much summed up why i play video games in the first place, but i wasnt a massive fan of the art style. even so i read ign all the time, i cant believe i missed this great little song :)
Reminds me of Still Alive from Portal.
Reminds me of the time I beat God of War
I personally feel that the ambition is a little greater then the end product. It I look at it for what it is, a neat little song that pays respect for gamers. It was worth the watch.
If I follow the hype left by the authors claims that I should expect this to be the "Anthem for gamers" and the "new epic song", then the experience is greatly whimpered by the vanilla sounding vocalist and somewhat hokey lyrics.
This video was referred to me by a friend. I honestly think it was put together very well; the animation is reminiscent of many video games as is the audio. The artwork was also inspiring and you can see the effort put into this piece. The lyrics to the song flow together very well, and the story they tell pulls it all together. I do not, however, agree with the conclusion of the video. I believe that video games have a place and purpose in our lives, so I am not trying to belittle people who enjoy playing them. But in having an obsession with gaining your next high by "saving the world," you are in essence doing nothing to save the world; the real world. You instead get lost in this idea that you are actually making a difference. It's a clever devise story tellers use. But just because you feel something in front of a screen does not mean that you have accomplished anything. Unless you put the "experienced gained" into practice, it's all in your head. A delusion.
